How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

No, that is not unreasonable at all for you to ask that, although many mechanics do charge an extra fee for diagnosing a vehicle problem........Treating you rudely just for asking is terrible.

How long has he been your mechanic?

I’ve only used him once before...for the car accident damage and yet another oil leak at the time. The one who sent me home with no coolant at all. The main reason I decided to try again is cause he’s the least expensive, and has a lot of good reviews on yelp. 

Now he’s saying he can’t tell if there’s another leak cause there’s oil all over something...so he’s probably going to do something to make that leak soon...😡

Did he tell you where he's seeing the oil?

He showed me. But there was another place he said had oil on it and cannot be sure where it’s coming from...convenient. 

I mean...how would he dx that with ANYONE else?!

Sigh. So I guess I’m also feeling very freakin vulnerable and scared.

Smoke generally means blowby. Could be piston rings,  scarred chamber or a blown headgasket. In theory that should be something he's able to DX.

The smoke went away right after they cleaned out the flooded spark plugs, which is when they said it was the valve cover and plugs. 

Which was last week.

He might have to put it on the lift to trace where it's coming from.....It might take some extra time for him to find out, but it is something he should be able to do........I don't get why he won't.

Nope. Said it’ll show up in a few months after this repair if it is leaking.

Well, he is acting like a very unprofessional a-hole for not dx'ing it for you today......I don't know if it's possible, but I think you need another mechanic.

They’ve already been working on it for a good 45 minutes. 😐

Very anxious...tstorms (I typically love) making the power cut off repeatedly. Too hot for no a/c. So glad hotel supplies breakfast...the only way I’ll eat this month now.

Tired, dreading the rest of the day, counting down the hours until I can sleep again. Climate change anxiety is back. It's 1pm and I already over ate and made poor food choices. Basically hating on myself with the limited energy I have left.

You know all those patriarchs in 70s dramas, where they'd start moping around groaning "I'm just so tired" before dropping dead? That's how I feel

Claustrophobic. Hemmed in. Panicked. I was honest with my pdoc today and walked out having to agree to a contract of close monitoring, daily check-ins and a limit on how many meds I can get at one time. It's that or inpatient.

      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.
