WRAP is Wellness Recovery Action Plan, and I’ve talked about it in some detail in other posts so I won’t bore you.
I am struggling with spending.
I am spending money I don’t really have to spare.
I can’t seem to halt the behavior.
So it’s time to get out my WRAP notebook.
What can I do when this takes over?
Oh, turn over the bank card to someone else! That really scares me so it’s probably the one I’d better do. Tank up the car, get a couple dollars in cash so I can get a coke or a coffee, and take the bank card out of my purse.
What else can I do?
Use up the art supplies I already have. Make art. Making art makes me happy, and most of my spending is on art supplies which want to be used. Make art seems like a good plan.
I have 2 online courses I’m taking, I could listen to one of them.
I need a shower before I see my family tomorrow.
I am owning my faults and blogging about them *right now* as I am typing this. I’m not sure if that’s helpful except that it’s always helpful to be honest and start from truth.
I can sleep. I just finished dinner and I have full-belly sleepiness. Nap is possible.
I think . . . I think I will listen to one of my courses, and maybe do some journaling or write some letters. I have a letter to Fishspit to finish. Then the shower before bed.
Because the medicine keeps the feelings under control and this is just behavior. I can change behavior. I can do this.
