It is starting to feel like a lot of progress that I’ve made is going up in smoke.

I can feel myself backsliding.

I am not using my skills very effectively.

I’m frustrated.

I’m not getting things done.

I am avoiding things.

I’m getting triggered by stuff.

I really didn’t need a month without a therapist. I know it’s not her fault.

I just… there are so many things going on.

I just need to get a break.

There are no breaks.

I can’t catch one.

Even though I have some money stashed, I can’t go on a vacay because my mom would flip her lid. She just bought me a new car. It’s not like I have enough money to even cover one car payment anyway. It would just be enough to go put me and myself in a campground for a couple of nights or something. But whatever.

I have school anyway. I can’t really do anything unless I get school done. So there’s that. And we have a test this week. So the timing would be terrible I guess.

I really just want freedom from this anxiety. The meds aren’t doing it.

Yesterday, it was so bad that I contemplated going to a dispensary and buying some edibles (recreational marijuana is legal here). I super hate marijuana though. Like hate it. It usually just makes me ill. So I didn’t. I’m not morally opposed to it or anything, I just don’t use recreational drugs. I don’t even drink.

So anyway. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll try to draw or paint or something. I’m not sure. Maybe later.

I think right now my avoidance of things is going to kick in and I’m going to take a nap.
