  7. I never heard of hob. It says male ferret as one of the definitions. It is good to get him clean I guess.

  8. Yep, sink and hob are done. I also managed to dust the living room in the nick of time. We got photos done ans I've done a little bit more cleaning and tidying. Gonna stop now. Have to make myself.. Need to rest, poor sleep last night. Hugs for everyone

  9. I had a busy afternoon. I went to the carwash and used the heat thing to thaw my car. I was able to remove most of the ice. Then Walmart, Co-op food store, Wendys, McDonald's. Later I changed my basket type furnace filter. It took me 45 minutes. I am currently cleaning the humidifier that is attached to the furnace. I have some pain in my neck prolly from tension. I also have some back pain and hip pain on my left side. Hugs for anyone who needs one.

  11. Hi everyone. Well, my final exam went well, and I don't know how I did it, but after 3 years, I reached 50% of the whole course, so I'm an "advanced" student now. I left soul, tears, health, mental health in the way, and lived with the minimum for the last 2 years. Time to get a job, and to work on myself, enough maths for now. I'm trying to reach out people. I'll go to a kind of (sports?) encounter tomorrow with a group of unknown students. Luckily for me, the only 2 friends (actually it's just one friend and I've seen once the other guy) I have here will come with me, so yeah, I won't be that weird that knows no-one. I've failed many times going to a place where I know noone, many times I just turned back at the gates of the event. Let's see how it goes.

    Welcome new friend to our forum family. We all have issues with varying degrees of depression. My experience reveals depression to be a natural formation / resource. We are all metaphorically empty but we need not become lost and trapped within ourselves. Please make yourself at home here and check out other posts. We are here to help.

  15. I got ready early (for me) and headed to my house to meet the agent.. Managed to get a bit more cleaning done.... Then met with him, got photos done.... Then did some more cleaning.... Popped in to see my neighbour......Went back into mine.. Watched a film and came back to moms for dinner. I'm pretty exhausted after very little sleep... So, all I really want to do is sleep...

    just noticed i put this in the wrong forum. oh well. maybe it'll get moved. thank you oscar and jd. i struggle with motivation and loneliness mostly. im a career cook out of work since january (less to do with being able to find a job and more to do with legal troubles due to my addiction). i have a psychologist again, finally, for the first time since 2018. is over telehealth, which even though there's video id prefer it was in person, but ill take what i can get.

  22. Unfortunately, the insensitivity of man towards man is a factor that many refuse to talk about or acknowledge. I'm sorry you're feeling the effects of it. Is there any way you can take a paid sick leave? A car accident and follow-up treatment like you've had warrant a MINIMUM of 90 days to recover from, both physically and emotionally/psychologically! And it's possible the soft tissue injuries you've sustained won't kick in with all their pain until maybe weeks later, at which time you'll know you need musculoskeletal repair/treatment. Do you have insurance? Did anyone take x-rays while you were in the ER? If not, that's okay. But you'll need some if/when the pain kicks in. I was in a bad car accident in February of one year and didn't take leave until three months later for 90 days--during which time I had massage and physical therapy, and eventually steroid injections in some of the discs in my lumbar spine. Trust me, when/if you're recovering, you're not doing ****-all with your time! You may have to go into battle for yourself with this job, but that is a worthy cause! You have my thoughts and good wishes. PM me if you need to talk or have any questions. WOTL

  23. Well, yep, at least I managed to get my chores done. I so didn't want to and really could have done with a rest. But the house is looking good.. Bathroom is sparkly. Bedrooms are sparkly. Garden is tidy. Kitchen is clean enough.. If I've got time I'll scrub the kitchen sink and hob before the agent arrives tomorrow. Then hopefully I can hand over the keys and leave the rest to them

  26. You are right. It appears that people have lost the capacity to understand. Everyone in their own world. We don't seem to have a common goal towards which we can move together.

  27. Not too bad. Have just booked in for a valuation with a new estate agent.... So the fun and games begin again. I tidied up the garden yesterday.... Just a bit of cleaning needed inside the house before then... Not too much for me to do. I might do a little tidy this pm

  29. Feeling more put together, but a bit like an idiot. Chickened out on starting a super tough conversation that needs to be had. I got through the intro stuff as usual ("thanks for chatting with me, this is hard. ive been feeling, uh, well...") but when i need to begin the actual substance i bring up a different conversation that was on the list, but secondary. That went well, but reflecting on it, i can't believe how scared i got. my head went blank and i felt like a deer in headlights. if i didn't have that secondary conversation in mind too then I don't know what i wouldve done.

  30. for you. It's good that TMS is not invasive, so there's not much down side to trying if you can.

  31. Today I spent most of my day at home , on the computer. Not really inspired to do much. I spoke with my therapist the other day, it was not that useful. it's hard to find a new one with all the stuff that's going on right now...so im just kind of stuck with that person.. I am still waiting to hear from my insurance and doctor about TMS ...and I will let you guys know too about my experience with it. Basically from what I've read some people find relief and others don't. It's pretty much the same as medication.

  34. The other night, I watched the movie The Starling. It's about healing from grief, and someone recommended it. I couldn't get past wondering how the main couple (supermarket worker and grade-school teacher) could afford a house on acres of land and months of inpatient mental health care. The treatment center where the husband stayed was gorgeous. He had unlimited time to stroll around the lovely grounds (Is this really what people think it's like?), and was able to fool the staff by hiding the meds under his tongue. Opposite of my experience years ago. Would be nice to think that a place like that existed.

  41. I don't know how to work through my stresses rn. i have therapy tomorrow so im just kinda sitting waiting for that. I need to talk to my husband about something but i feel like i need to consult with my therapist about approach. asked for a sooner appointment, which might be tough due to thte late minute nature of the request. whether i get therapy today or tomorrow, i just feel like i need to talk to my husband after I've worked out what i wanna say. n i'm not even really sure what i need to say

    Hi Zack, You seem like a great person who likes to help others. I read all of your previous posts and it seems like you had similar struggles about a year ago as well. Based on where you are from Pennsylvania and your posts I think it is possible that the culture in your area or your own inner circle might not talk about mental health a lot. I don't want to sound ignorant by saying that as I could be wrong based on the limited information that is just what I think could possibly be. I think talking with a counselor and finding forms of self expression are good ways to help find significance. Try being creative like writing poems or stories, learning a new instrument or sport. I understand many of these things cost but you could see if an old friend has a guitar or keyboard they no longer want. I once got free ballet lessons at college because I went to the wrong room, I thought I was going to intramural sports and I walked in and the teacher let me stay and do ballet. After the class she said I was a natural and let me keep showing up. I thought that was really cool. Self expression is a human need and to me you seem like a meh just kind of existing but you want to have passion, purpose, significance, to be remembered. I think soul searching is good for people like that to find yourself who you are. I hope everything goes well for you.
