When I was a kid, we had this record player that would get into an endless loop. When the needle would reach the end of the record, the arm would lift up, go back to the beginning of the record, and start playing it over again. That's symbolic of my life. The big record player just keeps playing the same dreadful song over and over again. Nothing changes. Except the record gets scratchier as time goes on so the song sounds sh!ttier each time it gets played.

Perfect metaphor for my life as well...

At work on break.  Cramps and anxiety and depression all day, with periodic feelings of bleakness overcoming me. This is tough.

Work and cramps...not a good combo.  Sending you gentle hugs of encouragement over the ether...

Hugs CC!  I am with you there.  We all are!  I hope you can find a way to do it.  You've done the run up times.  I know it's not easy, but you have proven you can do it!!!

I don't know how I'm going to sort out the details for my leave from work to attend the month long anxiety program at the hospital.  The short term disability won't start for a while and I don't have enough time to cover it.  I think they might want to fire me too.

When I was in the hospital the doctor said the people who followed up after I got out would help me with all the paperwork I need to do but then when they called me they said they didn't do that so now I'm on my own with a huge stack of paperwork I don't know what to do with and I don't know if I can make this work.

I don't even know why I care.  There's no way I can be fixed anyways.  It's not like they're going to tell me anything I don't know at this program.  I know what is wrong with me and I already know what they're going to tell me to do to fix it, none of this is a mystery to me.  No one can fix me but myself and I can't do it so therefore I'm never going to be fixed.  This is all a waste of time.

My problems only have two solutions, fix it myself (which I can't do) or...

He’s still frustrated with me. Won’t talk about his feelings so I’m left to ruminate over what little he has given me. I just must wait until he is ready to talk.

Gah. I remember that feeling well. Anhedonia is wonderful, eh?

I have an appointment with my shrink this afternoon. I really don't want to go.

Doc: "How have you been doing?"

Me: "Sh!tty"

Doc: "What has made things sh!tty?"

Me: "Depression"

Doc: "Well, what can we do about that?"

Me: "I don't know what *WE* can do about it, but I'm going to drink myself stupid"

Doc: "I strongly advise against that"

Blah blah blah blah...

I don't feel like doing anything. 

This has become a (seemingly) permanent state of being for me. I get up, I feed the cat, I go to work, I come home, I feed the cat again, I (sometimes) eat something, I sit and stare at the wall for an hour, I go to bed. 

Lather, rinse, repeat...

Yeah, I feel like staring at the wall for a few days.  

I'm really tired.  I don't have to wake up early and go driving for a while.  I need to keep up my nighttime driving though.  Driving was really hard today.

One thing I forget during my long, awful days at work is how almost-as-terrible days off can be.  I have a long list of stuff to do today including exercise, cleaning, writing, phone calls/errands...   And I don't want to do ANY of it.   Sigh

He does. Not as much as I’d like but when he talks his feelings are genuine and sincere. It’s a good start but it’s still only a start which means the road ahead will be rough but worth it. He now frustrated me so I have to wait to cool down before we can have a calm and communicative talk with each other.
