In the span of 5 minutes this morning, I encountered several triggers that brought tears to my eyes.

Avery and I were in the waiting room at her pediatrician’s office. We sat down. I started filling out a paper. And a nurse comes out and calls, “Oliver”.

Then, 3 minutes later, I get a call. I didn’t take it. I listened to the message. It was the pharmacy, letting me know that Oliver’s prescription is available for pickup.

  1. I’m glad you didn’t take the call, and I hope you deleted the voicemail. Is there anyone you can delegate this to – someone who can contact the pharmacy, other kinds of things like this, subscriptions etc, to try to make sure this doesn’t keep happening? If not, maybe there is something nice you can do for yourself when you are triggered like this, a song to listen to or a small chocolate or something. I don’t know. I’m not helpful. I wish I could offer more than unsolicited advice on the internet and tears from a distance.
