  5. Struggling with anxiety and self-hate gremlins today...*shakes fist* 😩

      :punch: I'm usually non-violent, but I'd like to punch anyone's gremlins away! :punch:

      Thank you for the well-intended violence, @MeBeMary!! :lol: I could definitely use it against those gremlins. :hammer:

  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*

      sitting withy you. i am glad you aware he didnt believe you. i know it is hard but it is a good sign that you are aware of this.

      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. Having bad anxiety today. Could use some hugs and sitters.

      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! 

       

  8. I want to curl into a ball and hide. Just one of those days.

  12. 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. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      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:

  13. I hate it when seasons change...especially from winter to spring/summer. It brings a lot of triggers with the warmer months. :(

      Sitting with you, @mini.finch - I have the same issue with the transition into fall.  For me, the fall brings back a lot of unpleasant thoughts and feelings. 

      I am hoping this year is a little easier with you, for you've got us all to support! ❤️ 

    2. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      Thank you @Capulet. I'm sorry that transitioning to fall is hard for you. It seems we're the opposite as far as the seasons go, but it is difficult either way. *sends safe hugs*

      True! I've got all of you with me. ❤️ Thank you so much for the support and for sitting with me. :hug:

  14. Really overwhelmed with work rn. I was sent so many projects. :( How can I do them all?

      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:

      I’m sorry you have so much on your plate. :( I’m glad to hear you’re doing okay, although still overwhelmed. I’m glad you are reaching out to us here though. We are with you and I wish you success in getting your projects done. ❤️ Still sitting with you and sending my support!

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