The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" Thread (3)

Recommended Posts

OMG. You've got to be kidding. This recruiter asked me to prep yet another document, a "leave behind" summarizing my experience, my successes, and outlining how I would acclimate myself in the first few months in the job. This job interview process is taking so much work.... it better be worth it in the end!!!!

Hi everyone.

Really struggling right now.  Last two days have been full of flashbacks, anxiety, fear and nightmares.

I'm really upset right now because 3 days ago a tooth that had a root canal treatment done a month ago, started hurting again.  It initially settle down after treatment, but now the pain is back and it's causing me to panic.  It also has these periods where it will feel loose and then fine again and go back and forth.  Recently it's felt loose and that really scares me.

I called my dentist, Dr. C., this morning and he is going to see me today at 4 pm.  I'm still in the process of building trust with him, so I still get in this panicky, anxiety and fearful kind of mood before appointments.  Especially when it's something unexpected like this.

I'm really worried that he won't be able to treat it himself and that I'll need a referral to a specialist.  I'm not ready to meet and try to trust another doctor right now.

I'm afraid I'm going to need some complicated treatment to fix this tooth.

What do you do when you feel like you're being constantly triggered?  How do I get out of this horrible cycle.

Thanks for reading.

I hope everyone is doing well.

JJ

Oh, I love Monday's LOL.

Anxious this morning, but not as bad as the last few Mondays.  I've been upping my working out and eating (and drinking) less, and my physical issues seem to be a little better (at least for now).

Away we go...

Glad you are feeling better

Well, I managed to get 2/3 of this interview "leave behind" document done for this recruiter. The prep for this interview is ridiculous! Had to complete a 9-question essay questionnaire, redo my entire resume to show all of my history, and now this summary document to leave behind during the interview. If I don't get this job after all this prep & effort, I'll be pretty bummed out.

I want to die. That's all I can do. I have no breaking point. I have no voice. It's too late for me. I'm tired of my life. I'm tired of it all. I'm tired of being my own prisoner. It's suffocating.

Exactly my reaction when my general doctor retired and I found out when I went in to her walk in hours. I burst into tears. She got me too. 

I'm sorry SG.

Its ok, that must have been rough especially since she didn,t give you notice, you must have felt devastated. I told my therpist I have avoided saying good bye to anyone because I get to upset it didn,t dawn on me that I wouldn,t be going back till i got home and put the plastic crow up in my condo. i just broke down.

I need  to think about the positives in my life but right now I cannot think of any. 

I need to move on from this rut I am stuck in.

Why don't you start with how caring you are with those of us here on DF and maybe you can go from there.

Hugs to the duck man!!!!

Completely and utterly awful. Like suicide is honestly better than continuing to breathe.
