Hey, I'm Karalee. I'm the one that used to cram her schedule so tightly that if anything went wrong, I was screwed.
It would force me into a stress induced panic and I thrived off it for a very long time. Someone told me to slow down and that statement put me into another panic thinking, "I can't slow down, there's so much to do, the kids need me every 5 seconds, and I need to make more money! It's just not possible!!!"
When you live in a state of survival for most of your life (for various reasons,) slowing down induces panic. No shame here. I've been there AND I'm on the other side.
