Hey we are people not robots, most of us our feelings and emotions and state of mind changes by the minute! Sure we have a how do you feel today, but is that a fair question? How can you answer that as the day has not ended yet and as soon as you posted you might feel different the next minute. Well here you go an opportunity to sound off when ever you want as often as you want because our feelings change through out the day! So feel free to post how you feel at this moment and come back if it changes! Come on my roller coaster ride! Let me start..




I feel a bit anxious at this moment, have a T appointment in a few hours.

Guilty,sleepy, fat ? #foodaddiction #bulimic

So absolutely drained. Up all night with my terrier, who has congestive heart failure. Really wasn't sure he'd make it through today. An injection of lasix (diuretic) helped him immensely. Hopefully we can both sleep tonight.

I'm feeling really nervous. Seeing a new doctor today. Really hoping he's the one. I'm tired of seeing useless one's who just shove me out the door as quick as they can or seem amazing at my first visit but then terrible at my follow up.

Also have a bit of an upset tummy. Could be worse so trying to remain positive that it won't get worse before I have to go out.

I'm sorry, it's hard when our fur babies are old or ill. I've nursed a few. I hope you both get some sleep.

New doctor was good, I think, although not at all what I expected. Not in a bad way. Just different. I don't like my odds of him continuing to allow my once every 18 month script of xanax........and he made me feel like an idiot (in a good way I think) by challenging some of my anxious thoughts (I knew they were silly some of them but whoa, saying them out loud to someone is a whole other story!).

I feel kind of anxious though. Because he made it seem like even though I've been this way as long as I can remember, that there's hope I will be able to get beyond the anxiety. And that is terrifying. I don't know if I want to get better. I mean I do, but at the same time the thought of not having my anxiety is frightening. I don't know how to be a me without it.

Torn.  I haven't worked much today and part of me feels like I need to do more.  The other part of me sees that it's 8pm and thinks I should just do nothing and call today a wash. 

I guess it depends on whether you are a morning person or a night owl. I'm a night owl so my "work" day begins in the evening and ends around 2 am. During the day, I'm either too anxious or my brain is mush to do anything except maybe troll the internet.

good point.  In general I'm a night owl and now would be a much better time for me.  This particular day, I think it might just be more of a wash in general for some unknown reason.  I've already lost another hour and I don't think I'd be able to do much.  I did work close to ten hours yesterday, so perhaps I've got some sort of too much work the day prior hangover! 

I also do much better working in spurts.  Two hours solid and then a one hour nap and then another three hours and then an hour on the computer and then a few more.  I've been able to do that with my current reduced hours and flexible "working from home if possible" arrangement.  It'll be hard when I don't qualify for that anymore because I physically and mental health-wise benefit from it pretty significantly.

I'm reposting this here because this is where it was meant to go. I'm so beside myself about it I didn't even put it in the right place!

Unable to go and get my script filled because of the fear of starting new meds. The rational side of my brain knows this is ridiculous, but the other part can't make myself get there and get it done. Anxiety has been pretty bad in general today.

      Lately I've been finding myself believing that there are kangaroos and camels in the backyard but later recognize them as deer. It makes no sense because neither kangaroo nor camel are native to my country. 

      Additionally, I've been having issues with thinking I'm speaking with people and then when I ask them what we were just talking about, they either say we haven't talked about anything for a while or that we were talking about something completely unrelated to what I thought the conversation was. 

      Any ideas of what the Hell might be going on here? I've never had something like this happen persistently up until a few months ago but now it's really becoming a concern. I start seeing a new psychiatrist on the 15th of March, and will bring all of this up, but I kind of wonder if anyone can give me a glimmer of insight of what might be happening here.

      Some of my voices tell me their names, and they refer to each other by those names. But the names they use are those of people I have known. I think they intentionally do this as part of an ongoing attempt to induce me to make mistakes and incorrectly think they are humans. But why would an hallucination(s) have motives?
      Furthermore, they actually acknowledge that they do have motives. Often, their stated motive is to cause me to have what they call “a hang-over”, which is a term they use that describes the problems that occur in the real world after misattributing their identity. For example, if I am psychotic or stressed, or if I am reality checking for some reason, I might react to who they ‘say’ they are by posting something incriminating, embarrassing or defamatory on Facebook. But having motives is not the only surprising and inexplicable trait my voices have. They also plan things, they have meetings, and one of them runs a training school in which I am the subject that the students (other voices) use to practice cruelty towards.
      But what really does me in, is an implied association between my voices and my feelings, and I do not mean the feelings I get as a result of hearing certain things, and I do not mean emotions. I mean things like twitching, very increased heart rate, ‘hot flushes’, cramps etc. My voices repeatedly ask “did you feel that?”, as though they are checking whether something they have done has worked. I also occasionally have absolutely terrible feelings that I struggle to be able to describe, and my voices will start ‘saying’ that the shit feelings I am having are a punishment for something that I have recently done.
      But to suggest that my feelings are somehow causally related to my voices is to suggest that my voices have agency, which is absurd. So I am really keen to hear from other people if they suspect that their voices impact their feelings (not moods or emotions) in a determinate, causal way. By this I mean that the voices do something that causes or changes feelings, that is, do your voices ever actually perpetrate changes in your feelings?

      I have changed the name of my blog. My apologies about any potential copyright infringement committed upon other CB bloggers with turtle-themed blogs. The shared turtleness is mere coincidence. I was thinking about this:

      turtles all the way down

      This summer's lesson from the trenches: intense feelings will not kill you (provided you are properly medicated. Please ask your doctor about what he or she can do for you). They will not kill you. You may wish they would. You may feel like they might. But they will not actually kill you. They may drive you to distraction, bring tears and anxiety, make you feel like you are going crazy. And in many ways they are preferable to the alternative. Feeling is part of the human condition. It's good to have a lesson in that now and again. It is good to know that after 27 years as an adult, and many years of therapy, I have internalized a healthy message, which is: feelings will not kill you. Not even intense ones, or ones that feel wrong, or ones that are out of sync with other feelings. That is both comforting and frustrating, but, strangely for me, more comforting than anything else at the moment, even though I feel sort of terrible at the moment. Sometimes you're just going to go through some shit. And maybe going through some shit can be a reminder that you are alive, and have agency in the world, and choices. Good lessons.

      I am capable of learning.

      And it's nice to know that after all of these years together, pdoc/tdoc and I still have things to talk about.

      Yesterday I walked two miles, fueled by a combination of sleep deprivation, adderall, anger, worry and anxiety. But I walked two miles. Forward progression.
