    How do You Feel Right Now? #12

    Fed up with news.Fed up with fake news. Fed up with trump, BoJo, Brexit, religion, science.. Fed up with covid. Fed up with people. Fed up with myself and this world void of any hope getting better. I see nothing good on the horizon. It's not as if everything is worse than before. . F ucking up is what humanity does by default. But in the last 60 years or so, the impact of humanty is devastating and we can now destroy life on this planet,. Global warming. Covid. Aholes as presidents, prime ministers, CEO's.. Forest fires, chopping down rainforests for a swift buck. Our insistance and obsession on a fossil fuel based liberal capitalist economy. And nothing is ever going to change because we are all aholes.Humanity sucks and the sooner covid or something else k ills us all the better the universe will be. I am tired of life. Tired of this bulls hit called life. I can't stand it anymore.

    Took the stray kitty to the veterinarian yesterday. He checked out well. His biggest issue is that he's malnourished. That's easy to fix. :) He has an abscessed tooth that needs to be removed but that's about it. They put his age around 6. I'm tempted to keep him--and my daughter wants me to--but I still struggle with having him integrate with the other two cats who've had me to themselves for five years. I dunno.

    I'm happy to hear that you are doing well in real life at least! DF has slowed down quite a bit over the past six months...might be the whole COVID business, I don't know. Far as I'm concerned, you are a very important member of the DF family. I'd miss the hell out of you if you left us.

    I'm in the same boat. I've put off having a tumor removed for almost a year now. I'm using the COVID situation as the excuse. I also have a tooth that broke off and is infected. Why did "God" create teeth with so many pain nerves in them?

    My daughter found a stray cat yesterday. She's really pretty; all black. She is craving love because all she wants to do is sit on you and purr. I have her in the spare bedroom of my apartment right now. She has a virus of some sort because she's sneezing a lot and one of her eyes is running. I worry because one of my cats might catch it, even though she's in a separate room. I don't know what to do with her. I'm feeding her because she is skin and bones. I'll take her to the vet tomorrow or Tuesday I guess.

    No don't say it should have been you ...no one knows when their time will be ..and death is part of life whether it hurts us or not. It's very hard to accept the loss of a person you loved..I completely understand that..but you sound like a very caring person , and like I've said before the way you speak/talk about your mother is wonderful/beautiful. And of course you inspire many on this forum, and in the real world, without realizing it..trust me..i truly believe there are people out there that have been inspired by something you said, you've done, and look up to you.. The illness won't allow us to see that, but I believe it, certainly not every day, because i have my bad days too and I feel like I can't take it, and I feel like a loser who does not belong here, but sometimes I have my good days.. Also it's tougher for us because i think we constantly struggle with appreciating ourselves , and we question pretty much everything and that can lead to a low self-esteem, and criticizing ourselves and making ourselves feeling like we are nothing. I have a lot of anxiety and I struggle with that a lot. I am learning to get better, but it's not easy. I over analyze things , and many times I need like to hear it from others "hey you are doing a good job" or "thanks for the help" , because my mind plays tricks on me.. Also i think in the real world it's harder for people to openly say to you , or any of us, how much they look up to you, respect you, and might be grateful to you, because some people are afraid how someone might take it, some people don't know how, they might be afraid it might be taken the wrong way. Here we can easily tell you , and everyone on here that we are grateful for each other and thankful to have each other..but in the every day life it's harder , sometimes you are afraid to approach people out of fear of them perhaps taking it the wrong way. I hope everyone has a good weekend!

    I dumped $330 at the vet yesterday having this stray kitty checked out. He's doing better than I thought he would be. Now I have to go get a tooth yanked because I'm in absolute agony. That will be a minimum of $300 as well. I can no longer afford to simply live. I don't have cable or wi fi in my dump of an apartment. I face tremendous anxiety and stress every single day yet I can't come close to breaking even. Tell me why I should burn myself out at work if I only get further behind?

    @JD4010 I have the dental issue right now too so I'm really dragging to keep everything going. You would think teeth would be more durable but they are very fragile. One of my injurys was from a dam potato chip (kettle) so the foods are also to blame. I think school should teach a course on health and personal care for those of us raised by a whole family of toothless persons.

    I think you need to focus on the moments when it was good for you, I'm sorry if I'm getting too personal, but focus on the time you had with your mother, (the outcome). the way you speak about her (you have a lot of love, appreciation, and happiness), and how much of an influence and great person she was to you and others, try to use her greatness as looking forward to better days. I know this illness has made our life very hard, but we have to be thankful to for people like your mother who walked into our life. some of those people are the reasons why I'm still here trying..the majority of people I've met in my life used me and abused me too, and made fun of me because they thought and some still think this illness is a joke...But I had people like your mother who were an inspiration for me, and when I'm having a bad day I try to think of their advice and how lucky I was to have met them . It's so wonderful hearing about the way you talk about her..she sounds like an amazing person.

    i get like that too, here's a little research i did i couldn't paste the website I don't think we are allowed. but maybe look into lamps if you haven't already Two different ways of administering light therapy 1. A light box delivers light that with up to ten times the intensity of normal domestic lighting. In most cases, you simply sit about 12 inches in front of a 10,000-lux light box for 15 to 30 minutes each morning. The light box emits a controlled amount of white light, with harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays filtered out. While the light needs to enter the eyes, you shouldnโ€™t stare directly at the light box, but rather continue your morning routine, such as eating breakfast, reading the newspaper or working at the computer. Most people notice an improvement in their SAD symptoms after a few days and experience the full antidepressant effect in about two weeks. You can buy a light box without a prescription, although you may want to work with a professional to monitor the benefits of the treatment. While light therapy carries few side effects, consult your doctor about any eye or skin problems before using a light box. Also, beware that light therapy may trigger a manic episode if you have bipolar disorder. 2. A dawn simulator is a device that gradually increases the amount of light in your bedroom in the morning to simulate the rising sun and wake you up. The light gradually increases, just as natural sunlight does, over a period of 30 to 45 minutes. Instead of waking in darkness, you wake to what looks like a sunny morning. This can help reset your circadian rhythm and improve your mood. While light boxes may trigger hypomania or mania in those with bipolar disorder, there is no such risk with a dawn simulator.

    Feeling a bit better today. I notice a strong correlation between my sleep patterns and my mood. If I stay up late watching movies, I feel anxious and depressed the next day. I'm nowhere near as bad if I go too bed earlier. I definitely suffer with SAD and my energy levels are down but if I get to bed earlier, it's much more manageable.

    Pretty low energy and anxious. Feel a little shaky inside. I think it's mainly due to SAD (seasonal affective disorder) . I know it makes me feel better to get outside at this time of year so Ima get myself dressed an outta the door for a walk after this cuppa. ... Then hopefully do some yoga later after mini lion's play time โ˜บ๏ธ

    All virtual where I am... pretty sure it's the case almost everywhere else in the US. I suppose I could request a session in-person, but I might need to move heaven and earth to succeed. On the other hand, dentists are open again and I've been to one. I know it's hard to do dentistry virtually, but if I can see a dentist in person, why not any other doctor?

    There's been too much trauma today. I saw a smurfs episode where Papa Smurf had a white hat and an episode where he had a brown beard. It's too much to deal with in one day.

    Thank you that was an amazing post! She was an amazing person. I've had some very amazing people in my life that I hold up on a pedestal. They were real life heroes. I try to live the best life I can. I feel like the first king in Lord of the Rings. When I get to heaven I want to be able to hold my head high around them. I want to deserve to be in their mighty presence. You know there is a lot of survivors guilt when you know that others that you consider heroes have passed and I'm the crud that god should have taken instead.

    Or you can just accept it as it is what it is....it's unfair that's for sure......and some will have it easier than others, and some will laugh, and have a better life. ..but some unfortunately will suffer more....the why remains unanswered to many people , but some turn into faith/religion/etc.. so everyone has their own answer as to why some have it easier than others..it all depends on your personal beliefs and views... Please don't hate yourself...

    Wish I had the means to retire, or at least get away from the daily misery... There's always hope that something will change if the burden of everyday existence and survival is removed. At least that's how it feels to me -- even if being able to sleep in peace would be the main initial benefit of not having the daily stresses.

    I fully believe there is better. I know shock you? Of course there is a better life out there but there's so much profit in offering something better that 9 times out of 10 it's just a con. The world hasn't changed a bit really since the mysterious stranger came into town selling snake oil or promising to make it rain. The only thing really different is we continue to trust them after they have failed over and over. We need to get back to running the bad guys out of town!

    the fact that you have some farm land to visit is very cool. some people do care. don't write off. when we moved to where we are now there was a nice farm across the street. cows, donkeys, somw horses, ducks, geese, nice little mix. we could walk across the road and visit with them since the barn was close to the road and the farmer was very cool and didn't mind us visiting. the animals get to know you after a while. now it's all gone another-damned-development built where it was. because we can never have enough new houses, townhouses and condos... why people won't buy or rent older ones is beyond me. ours is 20 years old. has some issues and has character. it's fine and the price is right. i'd take the farm back anyday over the crap they just built...

    Rock, that's one of the roughest problems I've ever read on the forum, and sorry it's yours. Like the above have said, please see a doc. Until then, I'd go with TID's suggestion and put yourself in a position where you pretty much have to follow through. I do that a good bit, with lots of interests and projects. I'll neatly pile up the tools and pieces to do a small job, then walk around it and stare at it until I can't stand it anymore, then I make a move. Not joking, you might try getting undressed, and getting in the shower or tub. Hope relief finds you, Bulgakov
