    The high temperature for today is 39 degrees.  What does that mean in this state of Ohio?  It means the 80 degree days are coming.🤨Am I bipolar or does the crazy weather here just mess me up all the time?

    Same here…in fact the grass is currently covered in snow and some of the more rural parts of the area could get up to 6 inches they said. But by the weekend…it is supposed to be in the 70’s! Been a really awful spring so far so hopefully things will begin to turn around after this snow and cold day.

  2. I guess my Seasonal Affective Depression isn’t just due to winter weather. It is cold and overcast and earlier there was some snow falling…wasn’t sticking though. This is like the 3rd or 4th weekend in a row of terrible weather and I am feeling it. My recent struggles have been amplified by the poor spring weather we have been having.

    Saturdays are usually the one day per week where I am sort of okay and “functional”. Not sure about today, been extra anxious of late and dealing with the “time of the month” symptoms right now. I will be going to lunch today and unfortunately since I wasn’t able to go at any point this week, have to go to the store which is likely to be a crowded nightmare. Having company later that I am now uncomfortable being around…kind of nervous about it because of some recent realizations I have come to.

  3. I would really like to know why (I have a guess but I can’t be certain) my sister in law and her family no longer like me. Some never liked me but some at least pretended to. Considering I have no relationship with relatives on either of my parents side…they really are the only “family” I see and that makes it even more sad.  I do have an aunt and uncle who I was seeing regularly for awhile but for reasons mostly out of my control…haven’t seen either in a long time and seriously doubt if we will ever have get togethers anytime soon. That also makes me sad because I never minded going and being around others. Sure, I may not say a whole lot but it doesn’t mean I didn’t like being there.

    @monicott17 I think people simply are more rude now. The long Covid situation and perilous financial times (especially inflation) are making people nervous and short tempered. I try to keep that in mind when I'm out and give people the benefit of the doubt. I'm not always successful but most of the time it goes well.

    I think…at least around my area that people are affected by the weather (I know I am) and it has been a terrible spring so far following a terrible winter. I always cringe when the sports teams don’t do well either because that also has a rather large impact…especially the football team…on the morale.

    I have just decided to take my chances and go to home depot, Saturday afternoon, wish me luck……

    Good luck! I made the mistake of going to the outlet mall on a Saturday afternoon and lets just say…it didn’t go so well.  I did at least get a decent meal out of it and likely am going to buy online some of the items I looked at but didn’t purchase.

  7. Well I am back from venturing out…didn’t really do all that well. In fact, I have noticed the last few times going to the store or being out elsewhere, my anxiety has been higher and starting to feel some panic again. Especially today, it was super busy there. And while I was able to browse the items, I didn’t buy anything though because several of the stores had employees that gave me weird vibes and didn’t want to have to engage with them. 

    Maybe it is that particular area I was in or perhaps Saturday is just a bad day to go as it was also full of rude people and not just store employees, but people in general seemed to be in a bad mood. I get sort of triggered by people on their phones talking loudly and almost yelling and saw a lot of that as well.

    I don’t know what to say anymore….I don’t like being stuck in the house so much but I am not liking and as comfortable with being out either.  I think I might need to discuss this with my therapist as I do not like the way I felt today after being out…was angry about some things I shouldn’t really be angry about and as I said, some employees I encountered weirded me out so I was a bit paranoid as well.

  8. I wish I could somehow make myself want to drive again. Super frustrating because I have to depend on others and always do things on their terms. Like today, need to go to the mall and was up early and ready especially since I like to be there close to when it opens (less busy) but that wasn’t convenient so now I have to go at the busy time and it is already making me anxious. I wouldn’t bother at all but not going out on weekends makes me feel worse since I am basically in my bedroom 24-7 on weekdays.

  9. Got to leave the house on a weekday so even though it was for a short time…that is enough to at least make me feel a tiny bit better. Could be why I got a bit more work done today too knowing I was going to go out.  The workload is still a mess though and no closer to being sorted out but that is up to my boss as I don’t have the desire or motivation to care about it or want to help.

    I actually had a good day last Monday. Most things went my way and I got things accomplished. I went to bed pleased.


    The rest of the week was one long avalanche of sh!t that just wouldn't stop. I'm buried underneath a massive pile and I don't know how (or even if) I'm going to climb out of it.

    The moral of the story is never think stuff might be going your way. It isn't.

    I can definitely relate. It seems for me if there is one thing that is ven remotely good…there is 4 or 5 bad things right along with it. Especially of late…nothing seems to be going right for me.
