How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry @DammitJanet I had the same mattress issue when I first moved. It was awful, metal poking into my side all night. Caused a bruise. I told the manager and he replaced it within a minute! I encourage you to try to ask gently and nicely, you never know!! Sometimes it really helps to play up the smile and flattery, you know? Never try, never know. It's a reasonable request.

That's awful the maids are so unfriendly. i mean, think about it - you are a GUEST. They don't know anything about you, do they? They have no right to judge you! Do they know specifics of your situation? It's their issue, it's NOT YOU. Probably they hate their job, or husband abuses them at home, who knows...

If the maids are not doing their job, i would go directly to their manager. Explain what you said here, you were even willing to borrow supplies and clean yourself!  I Smile, lay on the kindness, and act overly appreciative (you shouldn't have to do this) could help defrost an angry resentful person. (I worked in a call center for a couple years, having to deal with rude, angry, irritable people 8 hours a day)

Yeah, that’s what’s bothering me so much...I’m very nice and polite almost always, except yesterday when I got the dirty look for requesting disinfectant. And still a nasty attitude. I tipped $5 this time...is that not enough?? I really cannot afford more. 😐 They’re  sposed to come every 5 days to deep clean. 

I’ll definitely bring the maids up to the big mgr asap cause it’s affecting me too much. I hate being treated poorly by people who are getting paid. And it’s making me feel like a loser. Thanks for the push.

I would also encourage you to bring up the mattress.....You don't deserve to be in pain when you're trying to sleep.

Took extra Ritalin (at 3pm) then went and ran 5k at gym. Sad I need a drug to do this. Now having a beer (how healthy of me) 🙄 Gotta have some vice I guess. Could be worse, right?

You could start fucking with them. Leave a knife covered with tomato sauce in the sink and pretend to have a conversation on the phone saying things like "It's been taken care of. Benny now sleeps with the fishes." See if they treat you like shit when they think you're a hitwoman for the mob. "Here's a tip - do your fucking job!"

Suffering post-IKEA-assembly stress disorder. The instructions hermaphrodite lied to us, and didn’t include four screws we needed, necessitating a trip to Home Depot...on a Saturday. The cat was extremely helpful, which made everything take longer, and it turns out that the drywall in my friend’s bathroom is unaccountably twice the normal thickness. And she doesn’t know how to install drywall anchors. And there wasn’t any beer.

I'm watching a marathon of Queer Eye to distract myself from how completely shitty I feel.

jeez. I root dye my hair between professional colorings, because I can not deal with doing a full color myself, and I feel heroic for the 20 minutes it takes. I can't even imagine 3 hours.

Not sure I'll make it to the full three hours tbh lol. I have done four hours before on previous applications.

I also mention that if it were me, that henna would be all over my clothes and on the bathroom paint, with like a seven-day stain on my forehead.

I definitely have a stain on my forehead!

After that three hour wait I discovered I missed a small portion on one side. Grrrr. My hair is deep red with a little patch of orangey brown. Annoying.

In high school I dyed my hair black but missed a spot and had the same orange brown spot on the crown of  my head. Definitely annoying.

Pain. Still too afraid to talk to mgr about the mattress. I suck at advocating for myself. 

Bored out of my skull. So I’m eating  

Daily anxiety that something is going to happen to my car. No way to replace it and could not live without it.

      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.
