My head hurts a little still from the migraine I had last night, and my stomach is definitely not recovered, so I might just be resting today. It’s supposed to be 90° and if you couldn’t tell by reading other posts on my blog, I don’t do heat. I really should be trying to clean … Continue reading Maybe I’m doing nothing today…
There’s this thing in DBT called Opposite Action where you do the opposite of your emotion to try to change it. Today, I’m definitely trying to change the depression and anxiety that I was experiencing yesterday. I changed my sheets and I am washing (or rather drying now) my pillowcases. I made plans with a … Continue reading “Opposite Action”
What goes up, must come down. My fun hypomanic episode has come to an end. It had to of course, but I’m seriously bummed. I hate depression. The hopelessness and the feeling that it’s never going to end, even though I know realistically that it will. I’m just tired of the ride. People say that … Continue reading Crash and burn
The fan for the air conditioning is making a loud hum and I’m not about having no a/c in my car in the summer. So…it’s at the shop getting diagnosed and hopefully fixed today. We’ll see. Car parts are so hard to find lately with all of the shipping issues etc. I’m hoping they will … Continue reading My car is in the shop
I am so glad I had therapy today. I talked to her about being in the hospital and how I basically just disassociated to survive being in there. She was glad I got out when I did because she agreed with me that I probably would have just gotten worse had I stayed in there. … Continue reading Therapy was so helpful today
My Princess Leia mug is empty and I have no coffee. I’m so sad. Granted, she is mainly used for tea and I generally use different mugs for coffee, but the point remains. I need caffeine. My stepdad gets irritated when I mess with his coffee pot, mostly because I can never remember how much … Continue reading Someone bring me coffee!
I just realized today that the psychiatrist at the hospital diagnosed me as being in a severe mixed episode without psychotic features. Seriously. That man does not know what a mixed episode looks like I promise. I am not mixed. I know when I am mixed. I am absolutely miserable when I am that way … Continue reading Diagnosis: Mixed
How are you this morning? I am awake earlier than I usually get up, but then I took a nap late yesterday because of a migraine and then went to bed early. It’s a foggy morning here, but it’s supposed to be a pretty day. I’m looking forward to it. I have a dietican appointment, … Continue reading Good morning campers!
…and gas is like $5.20 a gallon so it costs money just to think about going somewhere. At the same time, a friend needs help with something this morning and I need to go out and get a couple of things, so I guess it has to happen. I am glad I have things to … Continue reading Running errands this morning…
Okay, some of you may have noticed my blog went dark on Friday. I went inpatient for my eating disorder. Ostensibly. Unfortunately, because of the way the system works, (or doesn’t), I got placed on a psych ward and didn’t see a dietician until today. I also didn’t see a case manager until today. I … Continue reading What a goat rodeo…
