  • Had 2 naps today. 15+ hours sleep since last night. I know I'm over the worst of this, but clearly my body needs rest. 58 hours total sleep since Monday.
    Rang GP to chase assessment, they said they've done a re-referral. I asked if that'd delay things further as I was referred over a year ago and they said they don't know. Ach.

    Fingers-crossed for you.. so tired of docs.
    Another early night. Getting my rest in. Visiting a friend who adopted our cat tomorrow. Going for a dog walk with them. Nothing else planned this week asides from seeing Meg at some point on the weekend. Got a craft fair on Sunday but I'm unsure I wanna go.

    Exhausted and ill, and this will be in a town and is a long day, plus lots of foot traffic. I know I should go. But at the same time, if I'm listening to my body - I need rest.
    Friend said they wanted to pursue disability discrimination. I said I didn't want to proceed. Don't want more stress, and it doesn't sit right with me. In other news, the same friend offered me a WFH job doing invoices. Will be in a months time. He said he's never met anyone better at processing than me. I am a machine when it comes to processing.

    Speaking as someone who has been in this system you are right. Going through this process can take many, many months or even years before your case gets heard. Me 3. DWP nil.
    After all the stress from the breakup and losing my job - I've now fallen ill. I guess it's understandable, and I hope it clears up before the weekend.
    I want dogs, but can't until next year. So I applied to an animal charity to do dog walks for owners who's health prevents them from doing so. There just so happens to be a vacancy in the village I live in.

    Found the first game I've fallen in love with in years. Also, the sound track is unlike anything I've ever heard in a video game before. This song is absolutely amazing:
    2 things that I place a lot of my self-worth into have ended within the space of 24 hours. I need to be careful here. I don't want to sink further into burnout and depression.

    You can always build up your self worth from nothing no matter what you lose.
    Anxiety is a lot less since we broke up last night. So that's good. I don't feel as exhausted or on edge. I'm still burnt out, don't get me wrong. And I'll have to be proactive to ward off loneliness.
    Me & Meg have amicably broken up. We realised this wasn't healthy for either of us, and in my burnout I was really struggling, but it was making her more distant. So we shall remain friends. Our original worry was dating would ruin our friendship. And I refuse to allow that to happen. We get on too well for that. I'm glad we could be civil.

    On the long run a good marriage looks very much like a very special friendship. I think you did a wise decission.

    My ex is still one of my best friends since we broke up. If anything, we have a better relationship now than the last few months we were together.
    Asked to speak to HR. I'm close to tears. I went to their office. Empty. I went to reception. Empty. I'm close to breaking point and nobody is here. I've emailed HR and it says they're in a meeting. I need help.

    Any work colleague around who could help you? I hope that you can have this situation resolved soon.
    Listening to really dark music today. This song in particular is gabber and breakcore with recordings from the 7/7 bombings. News reports, interviews, screams of terror. Yeah. Underground music is challenging for most.
    Feeling "chesty" as I call it. Anxiety is up - check hurts. Shoulder hurts. Very gassy. My health anxiety began after my 2nd panic attack left me with prolonged chest pain. But I was told in the hospital 2 weeks later - it's probably just stress. Great diagnosis doc.
    I forgot how exhausted I feel when in an office job. It's really horrific. Tried reading on my lunch break. But all I can muster is sitting on a picnic bench, hiding my head in my hands.
    In true autistic fashion on my first day I emailed my manager a list of 25+ spelling and grammatical errors in the procedure document I had to read through this morning. The job does require good attention to detail...
    First day in this new job. Its a very big office. I forgot how draining listening to inane conversation is. Especially when it's constant. At least I've seen people wearing headphones. So I can too once I'm trained up.
    Did mushies. Thought it'd put me in a better state for my new job tomorrow. Counterintuitive? The message? Rest - you are exhausted. Sure, I'm running on about 4 hours sleep today. But just in general, this dynamic isn't healthy. Look after yourself, eat better. This can't go on like this indefinitely. You're really exhausted lad.
