A little before 3 am this morning as I finished watching the Monk marathon on USA and flipped through the channels only to stop on Blast from the Past (for the second time this holiday weekend), I was suddenly struck with the fear that maybe tomorrow (which was really today) wasn’t a holiday after all and I would be expected to show up in just a few short hours.
My bewilderment is an offshoot of the fact that I had taken last Thursday and Friday off and had finally reached the point where my mind had clicked the work mode switch to the off position – and I felt disoriented.
That’s when the panic set in.
It’s an anxiety that makes my pulse quicken and my brain feel like a hard drive that’s malfunctioning.
Does this happen to anyone else?
