How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

Recommended Posts

I had my light low carb ice cream with banana- drizzled with hot peanut butter.  

I was too hungry to go to bed before. 

Now I am anticipating doing more if my painting and I'm low key excited and I want to take my time but half of me wants to jump out of bed and work on it for two hours.  Lol.  I just reason with myself that it will turn out better if I give myself lots of breaks. Slow and steady. I am working with acrylic so it dries fast and once I've waited an hour I can go back and add more details or paint over mistakes.  

This might be my best painting yet.  :-)

The day is done and how do I feel? Content. I have dirt under my fingernails from yard work and my dog's tuckered out. I'd like to finish every day like that.

The only thing better would be if I smelled of 2 stroke exhaust. But I use electrics because of their minimal environmental impact (grumble grumble grumble).

I'll never know why womens' perfumes smell like vanilla or lavender. 2 stroke smoke is the way to go. That totally sounds cheesy I know.

I'm a little depressed that I'm in a state of financial ruin until I get my credit card bill paid (which I am going to, but it might take a while and I may end up having to pay some interest on it); and it's not gonna be easy, but I'll get back on track

I'm not entirely sure. My head feels like it's being squeezed, but the depression isn't as bad as it could be. It has definitely descended, but it has been worse. I took a fairly big dose of Ritalin earlier, but I feel crappier than I normally do after taking that amount.

I feel like a klutz.  I dropped an entire container of goldfish pellets and a small glass which shattered into pieces, both simultaneously.  I am thankful for my vacuum today. LOL.

Other than that I feel rather on top of things.  I drank my water quota for the day, ate light, planted a rose bush, and last but not least I Decided I'm going back to school during the summer.  Pharmacy Technician school- for those of you who do not read my blog because I'm boring.  

The day i accidentally didn't take my meds was actually okay and I slept alright even without Ativan but thats probably because I didn't have my Wellbutrin that day either.

I am looking forward to tomorrow.  My friend is in Disney with her family but my mom's housekeeper is going out with me to breakfast.  I like breakfast.  :-)

      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.
