A Brighter Day

May 1, 2020 was a much brighter day.

Spilling My Words

Navelgazing Writer

I just think I needed to get the fears out there and that took a lot of the energy out of the feelings.

Clearly, sharing helps. I need to remember that.

The feelings build slowly, then get more distressing until I am feeling that train heading closer and closer. I feel like I am going to fall under the train, then write here and suddenly feel immense relief.

Not Being Alone

I know I am not alone in all this distress. That helps in some ways and makes me feel so sad in others. I wish I could take the pain from those that hurt, too, but my shield of protection is tight around me right now. Selfishly, it is me first at the moment.

Therapy Plans

I had my intake with the new counselor whatever day it was ago and she said she has 2 groups she also wants me in. You know you are on the downside when you are being recommended for several days a week of therapy. I look forward to it. I need some guidance and while I have done every kind of post-mental hospital support groups, it never hurts to have some reminders and maybe learn new skills.

The groups will be online and I look forward to seeing how they do them. Zoom? Some other way? Should be interesting.

I Quit

  1. Oh I am so with you on the news. The best thing I have done for myself is to tone down the FOMO. My anxiety is definitely down to a manageable level now. Just do it!

  2. Thank you! I am zipping through the The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels (Philippa Gregory) and those are keeping me occupied and not worrying about watching the news. I was also well enough last night to catch up on some Outlander. One knows I am not well when I put off watching Outlander! Glad I am better.

    Glad you are, too!
