I bet that takes a lot of adjustment. I have a friend who's an overnight nurse in the hospital. Her family is adjusted, but it's tough after years. Still, the body will adjust!
Jeff, my job is much easier, I think that will help :) thanks
It's not pathetic at all! You should be proud - you're doing so well and you've worked hard. Enjoy the moments when you can see how far you've come x
Yep, that is definitely not pathetic. You should be so proud! It's a big deal! 😘
Thank you guys
Yay you. X
me laugh and feel cared for and happy
So I guess it's a 5? Or a 6? I don't know. Whatever it is I'm feeling so lucky.
Something similar happened to me last night
Panic attacks are the worst! So sorry you went through that.
Glad you have someone like that!
grateful for everything I've got right now. I'm scared of the future sometimes, but it was not so long ago that I felt I had no future at all. As a matter of fact, I've felt like that for years. Being worried is ok. It's only human.
I'm doing the best I can and I'm planning on keeping at it.
You're correct, it's only human. Proud that you've accepted that fact, it's the first step of improving your mental health. Don't be too worried about your future, focus on the moment when it's happening, and when the future comes you'll be ready. :)
Thank you, Taylor
There are all sorts of great meditation techniques focusing on the flame of a candle. It's powerful!
I looove candles & the name Kiwi for a cat! 😻
post it on insta for that reason. I've even triggered myself tbh. Tomorrow's a new day though, and today has been a useful experience.
I'm glad you shared it. It is a such a powerful piece!
Thank you, Manda, I hope it was ok
Happy Happy New Year, my dear friend, Alicia! I hope this coming year is your best yet. Thank you for being so amazing! xx
Happy New Year Alicia xxx
Happy new year xx
Thank you, Manda, and I hope this year is your best as well! It's got the makings of it, right?
It sure does!
it lasts, eh? Spent som
Stupid phone. Spent some time with I's relatives, it was boring but not stressful. Not for Lee
Jeeezus! Not for me. I'm at work now. Had a nice night. Going home in an hour.
Glad it wasn't stressful. That's so tough to manage. Also glad you are taking your meds properly. That really helps things out.
times (midday or 6pm) and they've basically stopped working. I got depressed and started feeling fragile and unstable. After taking them at the same times for a few days I am feeling better. So, you know, watch out for that.
hm. i used to take it at 7:50 before going out but then it's the holidays so in the last week i took them at different times (between 9.30 and 11 depends on the day) and i felt i was getting worse.
Meds are such a pain. I know I can't sleep at night until I take mine & I don't even have a sleeping pill.
that I enjoy. I've started taking SSRI's for the first time. I've become more stable and a little more confident. Alex's moved out so my life has become much less stressful. People that are important to me have been in good health for the most part.
It's been a good year. I'm rather flat as I'm writing this but that's because I'm tired and in a depressive phase. Even so, I'm very grateful for everything and everyone. Especially for Pandas! Happy holidays.
❤️❤️❤️ The happiest of holidays to you, Alicia! ❤️❤️❤️
little uncomfortable, and kind of homey and predictable. I realized though that in time they will suck out too much and I'll turn into a leech myself. So I pulled them out of my brain (which hurt) and threw them on the ground and stomped on them so
they would never find the way back. The unfamiliar planet looked frightening and lonely. The house where I tried to make a home was shabby and felt unsafe, but it was better than the prison of leech hypnosis. The end.
Glad you were able to make it out with the leeches. Sounds frightening!
I should have put a 1 last time and a 4 today, but I've received the most wonderful early Christmas present and it's kept me happy even in parallel to the crisis.
this style, plus my knee, so I really should cut myself some slack, but I was triggered and I felt like a disgusting, fat, horrible troll and really wanted to self harm. I didn't though. Now going to work.
I'm sure you looked beautiful out there! Well done on not self harming. That must've been tough. xx
Thank you, Manda panda
