I feel like a mostly empty bowl of jello this morning. Once full and consumed by jiggle, now lethargic and clinging to the sides for life.

LOL

I will forever be a full bowl of Jello, at least until I lose some weight!!! :)

Raining here today. All damn day, according to the forecast. *sigh* Well, I still have to go to Mass & the store...putting it off.

Felt heavily, draggily (not a word, but I'm improvising) exhausted when I woke up. Slept 9 1/2 - 10 hours.

Think I'm not eating enough carbs since yesterday - ran out of too much, that's why the store. Maybe then I'll feel better.

I feel good! ^.^ I was in the bed whole day being depressed and crying, not kidding... Just woke up and clock was like... 8 pm? Yikes! Went to calming shower after that and it instantly calmed me. Now I am hungry... Fooooood. x__x

I am OK now. :) 

Tomorrow will be hard, though... Because work! But coffee helps and funny & supportive co-workers.

Well, my good mood yesterday was all too short-lived? Woke up depressed as ever ?? *sigh*  

Wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy...

Amazing how fleeting our "ups" can be, but maybe we'll reach the day when the "downs" are fleeting and we're on a more even keel.  Thinking good thoughts for and about you, LonelyHiker.

Always,

WOTL

Argh...I think the landlady just got back from her travels. She's even worse than her husband.

I feel weirdly sensitive lately, like I just want to withdraw and hide from things. Less so from doing stuff, but from unpleasant or draining interactions. Not good, either way. Will fight it.

Oh my.... so much to catch up on here after the weekend! Sending hugs and love to all who are struggling and having a rough go of it right now.

I just got back from spending the weekend with my boyfriend. We had a great time, but did address some of the issues. He's agreed to ask his therapist if I can join them on Wed. I have to be willing to walk away if need be, but weekends as great as this one make it harder.

Though I will say I did deal with some discomfort. The first night together I felt very wary of him and uncomfortable.... on edge even though I knew he wasn't going to attack me. And I did deal with some amount of interrogation when a guy said hello to me. Then it felt like same ole same ole, with everything positive and good the next day. But I am well aware that even abusive relationships can have positives.... and right now, I just really don't know what I'm dealing with.

@RiverLight  Well, one day at a time.  You don't have to figure it all out today.  Good luck with the therapy.  He might also want to look into an anger management class. Hugs

Good idea Lauryn! Thanks, and hugs back! :hugs:

Remember that you can always go back out on disability if it's too much, as a fallback..... perhaps don't put so much pressure on yourself about the novel? Can you edit it on the weekends while you're working? Sending hugs and best wishes!!!!! :hugs:

Feeling a good bit better today. I had to help with a showcase for the kids i teach, was so draining to be friendly and nice to the parents, the kids are fine, im generally happy with them.

I got a bit of a scare with my mom, she suddenly felt dizzy and had to sit down, i saw the look of panic in her face and it set me off. Talked it out with her and i told her i'm not ready to lose her. Need to gain my independence a bit more, even though its a struggle as shes my best friend too and can snap me out of a low mood.

Small steps. Achieved a lot today.
Hope you guys are all doing okay. Sending positive vibes and hugs :)

Disappointed.

Apparently my grandmother is offended because I didn't buy her a gift for her birthday, even though she knew very well that I was broke. I went all the way out there and spent the entire day with her, which was very inconvenient for me, I thought that was enough. She feels "used" - I have no idea what she means since I never ask anything of her, but I don't even care at this point. This is why I need to stop having any interaction with family. Drama, drama everywhere.

Oh, sh!t.

I've been doing better, though I had to slog home through the rain with groceries after Mass. But apparently the $12 I spent on a few indispensable necessities was enough to require my overdraft to kick in. Thankfully they charge interest instead of a fee, but still - this means I won't have enough to cover my phone bill, which means I won't have phone coverage by Friday.

****!!! I thought I still had a good $50-60 in that account! This kind of brings home to me how badly I've been doing, not just externally, but how out of it I've been. Floating along without looking down at the depths falling away beneath this tightrope. I think it's a psychological protective mechanism - to keep me going forward without getting overwhelmed by my situation. Acchh.

This means I'll have to cut into the savings I had which was supposed to pay for my move...most places require a deposit + rent, and I don't know yet how much either will be. The place I'm looking at Tues. doesn't require a deposit, though...hope, hope.

Prayers and hugs for everyone struggling now! I could use some myself, too.
