I don't want to burden others with my depression any longer. I picture my friends, at home, having a good time, doing their own thing. But then a text from me comes in, and it is just despair. They say they don't mind, they say it is okay. But it doesn't feel okay. It has been a 4+ year battle...

Hi. Today gave me the chance to experience a very satisfying morning that I wish it would always be this calm and relaxing. As always, I went to class, taking the bus. Surprisingly, it was cooling outside due to yesterday's storms, so I felt my body slightly shivering. Once inside, the...
I felt like I haven't even blinked and the entire year is over. My seasonal affective disorder is absolutely ruthless now that the sun is setting at four in the evening. I've been trying my hardest to practice my hobbies— journaling and tarot reading (yes really)— every day and so far. As for...

Started Sep 25 2021 There’s not a lot to say that hasn’t already been said. It feels that way most days. It feels like a big question mark in my chest. I’ve heard somewhere, “There are years that ask, and years that answer.” This year answers, but new question marks are planted, moved...
My sleeping schedule is now reversed and it has been awful for my mood. I'm terrified of having a bad sleeping schedule because I have my fur baby to take care of, and if I'm unable to walk and feed her then she doesn't get taken care of and it's my fault. Not to mention I'm hungry all the time...
Mop the floor in the bathroom. Mop the floor in the kitchen. Take my medicine and vitamins. Walk my fur baby. Feed my fur baby. Shower. Brush teeth. Write in my private food diary. Wash my dishes. Here is a list of my chores I need to do tomorrow. Most of these are things I do everyday but it...
I finally started a plan with my dietitian last Thursday and so far I've been following it pretty well. Though I discovered that I can no longer eat PB&J because it goes over my limit of 45mg carbohydrates per meal. Even if it's on whole wheat bread. Right now I'm stuck using the microwave for...

It was a bright summer morning when my parents and I began our much-anticipated summer vacation carrying our bags to the bus station on Stone Street. There, a crimson bus filled with excited passengers eager for their upcoming holidays waited to leave for Prague at 6:00 AM. There was an air of...
At last I finally got everything I needed to do DONE! I'm now able to relax in bed without anxiety balling up inside my stomach. Things went very smoothly with my blood work and with my first dietitian appointment. I even got to pet a dog today! I'm super relieved everything went as well as it...
I got my blood drawn and now I have to wait for 11:00 AM so I can go to see my dietitian for the first time, but I'm tired since I had to wake up at 4:00 AM in order to have enough time to get ready for both appointments. Not to mention my apartment might be getting inspected and I hardly have...
I have so much to do and I'm so overwhelmed. Tomorrow I get my second Moderna shot and I have to prepare for a USDA inspection for my apartment. I didn't get any preparations done today and I made dinner which I barely ate any of. I'm upset with myself. On the 19th is the official inspection...

I babysat my three year old neice yesterday. We were watching t.v. and she was sitting on my lap when she told me "You have funny boobs". It took all of effort to not laugh. I had been feeling quite pressured and stressed but that one line made everything right again.

Or lack thereof. I've made a patch for myself in the park from where I've been staffing on the same spot for over a year. Ed

So. I've been offline for a while since getting a new job, and I've learned many things not just about work, but also socialising. There's this awesome dynamic that I've picked up on that I didn't always have. I saw other people use it and they looked like they were enjoying themselves by...

Wow, yeah... it's been a LONG time since I last did one of these, yeah? Blame Covid for this. The last one I did was in December, but... my anxiety over the virus started in January, as early January was when I first heard of the blasted thing. Thanks to that, I havent felt like doing...

I awaken to a call from my brother. He incoherently speaks of our mother: "Mother's sister of father!" I wonder why I bothered. I hang up, but the pain isn't over. _______________________ I wake up again No tears fall. I must distract Before it begins ___________________ My name is Eris I...

Do you think there will ever come a time when we can all just take it easy and enjoy life for more than a day? Not me, with all the thoughts that go on in my supercharged v8 engine I call a brain lately. I've taken a 3-day break from my assignments to give me time to recover and not break down...
