  1. Being stuck at home now I am constantly reaching for my phone or tablet even when I have absolutely no reason to. Luckily, or unluckily, depending on my mood, I don't have the problem of people trying to contact me. I was thinking about this last night, what the heck did I do with all this free time before smart phones.
  2. I'm just the opposite. Being in quarantine for the second time, time is my enemy. My mind is rebelling because I can't keep it busy. The logical answers seem so easy, and they probably are for normal people. Do things you are interested in or find a new hobby. It's just not that easy for me. I don't enjoy anything I used to and have no interest in trying something new. I know I have nobody to blame but myself but I am my own worst enemy.
  3. Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. -Nietzche
  4. Having one of those nights where the isolation is really getting to me. My mind is racing and nothing I can do to calm it down.
  5. “Today I shall behave, as if this is the day I will be remembered.” Dr. Seuss
  6. Steal My Sunshine - Len Heard this song while watching Mr. Robot a few nights ago and it's been stuck in my head ever since.
  7. Started reading "The Sword of Truth" series by Terry Goodkind again. I was a bit devasted to hear of his sudden passing a short time ago. I'm convinced I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for his books because when I was in my darkest times they were the only thing that could distract my mind from the demons.
  8. This says more about how I feel then I can explain on my own.... “Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to you.” - Carl Jung
  9. I'm finally back to work after the mandatory shutdowns so I am around people, and I am fine with that. But to be honest it's not much different than when I am isolated from everyone. None of it is real. I may socialize and joke around but then I'm off to my reality of being completely alone. I'm in one of my downswings where the loneliness is weighing so heavily on me. I miss that connection with one person. Someone who knows what you are going through and actually cares how you are feeling. Someone who can make things a little brighter just by sitting next to you, not having to say a word. It comes so easily for most people. I would give anything to have that again. Even here, where I have never felt like I have been judged or looked down upon, I feel so weak and pathetic for putting this out there. I haven't even been here for months because I haven't felt any kind of connection. This thread did hit close to home though. I'm sorry for those who are going through the same things. Nobody should have to live alone.
  10. Thank you for everything you do here. Take whatever time you need to take care of yourself, you come first. Don't forget that we are here for you just like you are here for us.
  11. I remember bottle feeding calves on my grandparents farm when I was a kid. Would spend a couple weeks there every summer. Some of my best memories. Thank you for reminding me.
  12. Wishing you strength in this difficult time.
  13. Welcome @TrytoFly, I'm glad you found this place and hope you find something here you find helpful.

    My weekend

    Thank you for the kind replies. When I post at the times I am feeling down I very much appreciate knowing there are people here who can understand and empathize with how I am feeling.
