      Thank you so much @Field8, @WendyAlone, and @sisyphus. You're all so sweet. ❤️ Truly it's MY honor to know you all.

      Thanks for asking, Fieldy. It went ok-ish...as I thought, my doctor put me down about my weight. Insisted I change my eating habits and exercise more. She also still refused to believe I have as many migraines as I do. I need to get a new doctor.

      Ugh. Why don't doctors believe us? 

      I did finally find a trauma sensitive doctor, same way I did with the therapist. I made a list of standards and discussed that I have medical trauma before making the appointment. It still took a couple of tries.

      Blessings with healing your body! 

       

  3. Really struggling with this spring/warmer weather. I feel so scared. Hugs/sitters appreciated.

      I’m so sorry about the migraines. I have horrible ones to the point I had to take medical disability. Take care.

  6. I feel unbelieved by my psychiatrist. I just had a tough appointment. I feel like I was explaining things over and over again, and he didn't believe me. I had to keep talking. I'm feeling very exhausted and anxious now. *sigh*

      Thank you for sitting with me, @LuthienTinuviel. I'm glad you think that it's a good sign. I didn't realize that it was, honestly. So for you to say that is helpful to me. Thanks again. ❤️

      LuthienTinuviel

      yeah. i mean it stinks that you dont feel believed co si think you should by someone who is supposed to help you. but an assault memory came back meaner one time when ithought my T was confirming that it wasnt a big deal. it was but i had explaiend to her very vaguely. so im here trying to pick up and do it on my own. if i was her i would have tried to encourage more clarification to find out that yes it was abuse.

  7. Trying not to hate myself. But the self-hatred gremlins are strong.

      Oh I'm sorry that this time is triggering for you Finch. Sending hugs :hug: It's weird the way time passes differently throughout the year. I always feel like January is so looong and then February always disappears in a flash.

      Thank you for the encouragement @Enigma87. ❤️ I'm trying. I still have 3 projects to do...one due tomorrow, maybe 2 due tomorrow actually, and one due wednesday. They're time-consuming and stressful. But I am working on one thing at a time.  

      I am doing ok...still feeling overwhelmed, but I know I'll get through things somehow! :sweat:

  22. The weather is lovely today. I'm trying my best to enjoy it and to shove aside my anxiety related to this season/temperature. I just focus on my dog when walking her and how much she loves being outside in it. I need to remind myself that I'm safe. Or at least mostly safe. And the lovely weather should be appreciated when it's around...:flowers: Admittedly, it's nice to go outside and not need a giant coat!

      Nice weather is a lovely thing indeed!  I hope you get to enjoy yourself.

      I'm glad you are trying to see the positives of days like today. It was wrong for anyone to "steal" these days from you and reclaiming them is what you so deserved. 

      Sending hugs, friend. :hug:  

    3. Finchy

      Finchy

      Thank you, both. ❤️ @MeBeMary It was definitely wrong of them. It's not easy to reclaim anything...but I'm trying. I'm proud of myself for being able to enjoy the weather, even for a little bit. My mind wandered to the negative memories, but for the most part, I did pretty well. :hug:

  23. Why are doctors so difficult to get ahold of when you need them? :( 

    1. MeBeMary

      MeBeMary

      Nobody at the office could help? Is this a regular MD you need, friend? Maybe going to Urgent Care, if they don't reply?

      Hope you are ok. :(  Sending support and safe hugs. :hug:  

    2. Doll6

      Sending safe hugs @Finchy. Hope you can catch them soon!!

      Finchy

      Thank you @MeBeMary and @Doll6. You're right...urgent care...I forget about them. I don't know if they could help. It's my foot. The plantar fasciitis has been putting me in tons of pain. I don't know what to do about it. And then my neurologist...he hasn't been returning my class...he's disappeared. No one in the office will pick up either. 

      Thank you both. ❤️ *safe hugs in return*
