Do you get a lot of potassium and magnesium? My mom and I get headaches whenever we don't have enough
Meri, I have no idea. Thank you for the info, I'll look into it. I really appreciate it.
Done my exercises. Trying to enjoy the rain outside the way I would before I started running. Trying out a new calorie counting app. Feeling happy overall. What's gotten me undepressed was the Squirmy and Grubs YouTube channel.
The feeling of coziness persists, though it is interrupted by sad thoughts from time to time. I fight those. Bought the new album of Danger Mouse today, loving it!
Thank you, pandas :)
It was a run day skipped for the same reasons for me too.
Woot! Congrats, Alicia! Well done. 💖

I hope the same for you! 💖
What was your new kind of run? Did you run on your hands? Did you run with one leg tied behind your back? Did you run backwards and blindfolded? Those things would make me grumpy and sore!
No, Jeff, it was just a different leg run… But I should definitely try some of what you're talking about here :)
some. In fact, I feel sort of worse. Sadder, and more tired. This is a great revelation! A great day overall. Happy for myself and others. Hopeful.
That's great, Alicia! Chemically, alcohol is a depressant. It is good that your reduction of intake made it easier to see the effect it had on your mood when you did have some. . . I wasn't drinking much the last couple of years. Since October, I
have not had any alcohol. I had convinced myself in the past that the bad reactions I have had at times were due to other factors but I could not ignore the last experience. I only had one drink since I think and none since then. I am open to the
idea of becoming a pioneer for good! . . . We'll see! . . . Anyways, welldone to you! :D Sounds like you had a great day :)
Well done with the alcohol. Hopefully you'll reach the stage I'm in & it sounds repulsive.
Thank you for sharing, Keeping Track, it's inspiring. Manda, repulsive is not something I would have gone for, but now I know that exists I'm gonna try!
pretty nice! I didn't run today because of the rain, and I'm feeling extra fat and ugly and just terrible, so I tried to keep busy. It helps. Finished the painting, I don't know if I like it, but the feeling of anxiety it instills in me is kind of
what I was going for. Hope it doesn't rain tomorrow, so I can run.
Are you going to share pics of the latest painting? Hope you get your run in!
I did run, Manda, and I have shared the painting a little while ago.
It's turned out amazing! Well done, Alicia!
Oooooh! Peacock sounds awesome!
Peacock? That sounds amazing - good for you!
Thank you :) I thought it was sort of kitchy and fun :)
Albertine I got sent a video of it. It's amazing!
make some more positive changes in my life. I won't talk about it here yet, will see how it goes :)
That's great that you have someone to talk to and who helped inspire you! Will be eager to hear about your positive changes!
Everything crossed Alicia - I'm sure you can do it!
Thank you very much, Jeff and Albertine
art by a certain gifted individual. I feel so lucky to have this person in my life. Sort of. Online, but whatever. Sharing the good stuff can turn any day into a holiday!
Online is still life! :) I finished You the other weekend. Was it wrong I just wanted things to work out for the main character?
Jeff, I cried like a baby for him at the end :) I guess that's what makes it a good show: the horrendous level of ambivalence.
I like 'horrendous level of ambivalence'!
Thank you :)
have been the best years of my life if only there wasn't so much conflict and whining. I am still young(ish), and I'm healthy, full of creative energy, I've finally learned to cope with my mental issues, I'm making plans and dreams and goals. I've
had a hard life. So many things have gone wrong. So many things I have failed at. I am feeling strong and hopeful for the first time since, I dunno, I was 16. And I so don't want to give it up, and I can not give it up. Who knows how long I have
until something happens? My mom might die, or one of Inga's parents. Someone might get seriously sick. It happens all the time, it's life. A great time like here and now for me should be greatly appreciated. We are owed nothing. The world is not
benevolent. It's rather indifferent, I feel. All the more reason to enjoy stuff while we can. I need to figure this out. I don't know what to do yet. But I will.
I so admire your perseverance and desire to improve!!
Thank you, Jeff. I sort of feel I haven't got a choice, I had to fight so hard to get here.
Don't go to extremes and become as 'indifferent' as the world. Then you'll experience more of it, growing wiser and stronger as you you watch it all go by.
the actors and director and helped them clear the room (it was their last performance in that building). I hope they get all sorts of prises at the festivals they are applying to right now. They so deserve it. It was an awesome night :)
I know this night had a big affect on you. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Thank you, John <3
