Thanks Duck, I been here but not been able to post much. I cant really put into words well enough and so tired of upsetting people because i cant articulate my feelings

You've never said anything to upset me.  You're always welcome here to say anything you want to say.

I agree even the strongest people I know are cracking under the pressure of all this.  I just feel like I'm hanging onto a piece of a wrecked boat in the middle of the ocean waiting for help to arrive that's never going to show up.

yes many people are struggling with anxiety, insomnia, depression , all because of this virus. i hope things get better soon

I am the same.  I cannot put my feelings into words.  'articulate'   you just taught me how to use the word 🙂

See this is my issue, I did not mean anyone on here

People close to me in life, I honestly feel like we don't even speak the same language anymore. I will use a wrong word and that sets off a massive argument. I'm done, going mute.

But i'm working on my health, physical and mental. I finally get to have a fight soon too which I cannot wait for, sparring and bags are fun but its not the same as a match

I know how you feel.  There seems to be a huge difference between this place and the way people are in real life.  If real life was like this place I would have a good life but in real life I'll probably leave the world by the end of the year.  People help me here and make me feel better.  The people in real life seem to endlessly push me closer to losing my sanity every day.  They want my life to be worse any way they can make it happen.

I know things are hard, but i'm so tired and drained of the people around me being almost constantly negative. I know I have to pull myself out of this slump but honestly I dont know why I bother if i cant get an environment where at least I can ignore most of what my head is telling me. People have said that i look a lot happier so at least my mask isn't cracking yet

I have actual conversations with people as long as they stay 6 feet away from me and are wearing a mask.

LOL.  Welcome back NoJoy,

I know what you mean here, it just makes me laugh to read it and have it make sense.

I know normal chit chat type conversation isn't happening anymore.  Any group of people talking is a debate at this point.  I'm ready to retire from the world.  I hope your fight goes well.

Very irritable today. I couldn't bear any creature that wasn't my cat or similar, like a friendly dog or something. 

Shopping and walking were stressful. I enjoyed being in nature and some feline and canine company, but the humans that I came across felt like potential bombs ready to go off at any moment....

Or maybe that was just me 🤔

6 feet away with a mask.  I'm constantly asked to repeat myself but at this point I just mumble on purpose even when I'm asked to repeat myself.  I have to get some type of comedy out of it or I'll snap.

I feel like the weight of the world is lifting off of me. Finally, something good is happening in my world.

Happy for you!  Happy you posted!   Missed you!

Hurt, Disappointed, Violated, Threatened & Betrayed. 

Also, Brave, Honest, Self-respecting, Fierce & Thankful. 

I ended a friendship today. They messed up with me time and again, apologizing after each time only to hurt and upset and disappoint me once more. Eventually I had enough and boundaries mean very little if I'm not prepared to enforce them. It was a difficult conversation. They cried, pleaded for one last chance and I had to sound like a broken record.

To sort of fortify my resolve, I kept in my mind an affirmation I read someplace: I can't control your behavior, I can only control my exposure to it.

It's always something in life though too.  Like today I was trimming bushes and accidentlally tore up a bird's nest that was in the bushes and the birds were mad at me.:sniffle1:

it was a mistake, ..dont be too hard on yourself sober...

yeah i think that you can give people chances, but after a while, if they don't change it gets really boring, tiring, and you aren't true to yourself. I've had to end friendships as well, because i got tired of playing games. it's so hard to find people who are honest..

It didn't make any sense where their nest was.  I watched where they put their new nest right on top of trimmed bushes.  They probably did the same thing last time and that's how their nest got where it was.  Hey let's do the same thing again they say.🤷‍♀️
