How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

Thanks for the info. I avoid fans cause they always somehow end up bugging my skin. The blowing when I’m trying to relax. But I might just try it cause even with the news blaring loudly I am still jumping out of my skin. 

the breeze is very minimal with the marpac. non-existant obviously if you go with the lectrofan.

Off-topic, but if you do find yourself using a computer late a night (after dark really), windows has a built in "night light" mode that changes the color temperature of your screen.

There's also this app

That does it if you don't have windows 10 or have an older mac that doesn't have a night light feature.

you can even get dorky safety glasses that go over your regular glasses to help filter blue light. I used that for a while..actually did help sleep, but found it to be a bit annoying to wear them after sunset.

Good to know about the lectrofan. Yes I have night mode on my iPad set at six. I was going to bed at nine but since I continue to wake up too early I’ve been going to bed by 8. Which is helping my mood. Another good thing, is the construction noise seems to have moved at least 10 feet away. Hope it stays there! Thanks for all the information!

Overworked Over-read with no breaks.....Eyes are are dry as desert. [edit: did not really accomplish much of anything, so I'm not sure the purpose of reading for hours as my brain won't retain it]

Anxious. Expecting some pretty severe storms coming in. This system is the tornado breeder that has been moving across the US.

scared.  I've now learned that I had two text conversations at night after taking medication that I had actually no memory of having the next day.  I don't know if it's medication-related or not.  The first one happened at 10:30pm, before I went to sleep (per my fitbit).  The other happened at 4:30am (the other person was in another country), and I was apparently awake per my fitbit.

I have a history of parasomnias with ambien, but I don't know if this is at all up that alley.  The only sleep drug I take is temazepam, which is a very different drug.

This is a totally crap sentence, and scholars are deliberately grandiloquent in preference to expressing themselves clearly:

Further, failing to eschew “positive” self-deception may involve seeing social humanity (i.e., other people in general) through “rose-colored” glasses, that is, in a less realistic and accurate light.”

That’s what happened to ours last night! You can’t be too far away.

According to what I've read about temazepam, it can cause parasomnias....This is a pretty long article on the drug, but it mentions parasomnias as side effect:

https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/temazepam-oral-route/side-effects/drg-20072162?p=1

Quote from the article: 

"This medicine may cause you to do things while you are still asleep that you may not remember the next morning. It is possible you could drive a car, sleepwalk, have sex, make phone calls, or prepare and eat food while you are asleep or not fully awake. Tell your doctor right away if you learn that any of these has happened."

Again, because the pounding hasn’t begun yet, I’m feeling even more serene than normal. I added a Zyrtec to my four other sleep meds last night, and finally slept 10.5 hours last night! Groggy, but emotionally much better.

Ah...there comes the freakin pounding...oh well, hopefully tomorrow when I get paid I can somehow figure out something to cut back on to buy the noise machine...but that will most likely dig deep into my monthly already small food budget. 

Got abby on her walk at 7 am this morning before my first cup of coffee! So... I’m feeling accomplished, nervous now that the noise just started, and hopeful that a cold shower was give me enough energy to clean up my apartment as I’ve only a few days where it has to lose at least half of what is in it!

sorry for yet another novella. 

Just don't read me here, k. 😂

I've passed into a sleepy mode where I'm sleepy all the time. I feel drugged. Hate this feeling and hate to be sleepy during the day.

      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.
