  1. What are you listening to right now?

  2. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    also feeling better this morning. i was able to distract until the urge faded, and made some art instead. i'm proud of myself for being able to make something good out of a bad mood. :-)

    tired and sad again. wanting to SI, but my arm just healed up. i wish i was a better person.
  4. hi, welcome to crazyboards! i'm sorry you're struggling so much right now, but you've come to the right place. i don't mean to interview you, but if you could answer a few questions it'll narrow down the best advice for you. what symptoms are you struggling most with right now? how long have you been on the anafranil? if you don't feel it's helping, you can always try something different, though i'm assuming you've tried a few already if you're on a tricyclic. it would be helpful if you could create a list of meds you've tried already and whether they helped. that way we can start giving you some ideas, med-wise. are you seeing a therapist/counsellor (tdoc)? therapy can be really effective on the areas where medication isn't working. there are a lot of options and many people on the boards have been through the wringer finding something that works. don't lose hope.
  5. 45 minute walk to the grocery store and back to get milk.

    sleepy, sort of sad. being social is hard. how does it come so easily for others? having to laugh at the right time and pay attention to conversations and figure out something to say... it's a lot. and worse in groups.

    thanks for teaching me a new word! feeling happy! i got a new tattoo yesterday and it's really brightened my mood. i'll put a picture in my blog when it's healed up. it's a bunch of grapes with a big leaf in black ink with lots of fine lines and dotwork. i'm so happy with it!

    pissed, actually. it's 20 (68) friggin degrees outside with full sun? jesus. give me some cloud cover. also, a friend has been in town for a week and just asked to meet up for the third time in that long. i think he goes back home tomorrow, thank goodness. i like him, but i've had enough socialization in this last week to last me a fucking month. it's a celebratory drink because he just finished his huge final graduation project, so i can't really say no. but really! three times in one week? is he trying to kill me?? pdoc is trying to get me to socialize more than i do, which i don't really understand. i think he thinks i'm shy. fuck that. i have no trouble socializing or talking, but i'm introverted. socializing wears me out. and when i do too much of it, it makes me irritable. honestly i think cutting down my alone time is actually worse for me. this is getting ranty. friend and i are meeting up in 10 min. gotta put on a happy face and drink a stupid beer.
  9. What Did You Accomplish Today?

    phoned pdoc's office to make an appointment, phoned worksafe to deal with a mailing address issue, and sent off some paperwork for an RESP withdrawal. administrative stuff like that makes me anxious.
  10. good on you. i had an experience with a tdoc where one appointment was enough to know it wasn't right. definitely go with your gut.
  11. i shiver when really anxious.
  12. random thoughts!

    sometimes your day starts at 7:00 AM. sometimes it starts at 5:30 PM. oh well.
  13. had a shower, finally, after 6 days. don't all cheer at once, now.

  14. half hour of yoga. i went into it hoping for a longer session, but it's one of those days where it's hard to anything. happy that i did that much, anyway. @dancesintherain i love a good deep hip stretch. they're my favourite kind of stretch to do. :-)
  15. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    ugh. no motivation today. nothing seems appealing. i've felt pretty good lately so what's up with this? i really, really need to take a shower. i've had a ridiculously hard time doing that lately.
