How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

Recommended Posts

Blinding headache. Also I discovered today that the dog is afraid of wrapping paper.

I'm trying to stay awake, to improve the likelihood of staying awake tomorrow during hooman hours when guests are here.

 

Being so tired is making me sad 😫 No one should have to be awake in the middle of the afternoon

I’m removing the content of the nightmare and sending it to my blog because I think it’s too graphic to randomly post in this thread.

 

I don't think I need to wonder why I'm having trouble getting back to sleep.

edited - took an extra .5mg of xanax to see if that would help me get back to sleep . I've been given permission from pdoc to play around with dosage a bit.

 

now accepting votes - time to increase the prazosin?  I take 2mg and I've been given permission to take 3mg.

@dancesintherain what a frightening dream! I vote for trying an increase in the prazosin, since you've already been given the go ahead by pdoc.

I am currently being subjected to highly, highly annoying Xmas music blaring out from my neighbour's house. I generally dislike Xmas songs, but nurture a special hatred for anything warbling about snow and reindeer when it's the middle of frigging summer here.

Thanks @miab, it was awful. I did make it back to sleep around 7am after talking to someone around 5ish (I woke up at 3:30).  He said my dreams sound like horror movie plots.

i didn’t bring the extra prazosin with me on this trip, but I’ll bump it up when I get home.

im sorry to hear about the poorly chosen Xmas music.  That sounds annoying.

I want the holidays to be over. I want normalcy and routine and quiet, and for bad memories and nightmares to fade. And I haven’t even had Christmas yet, we’re waiting for my oldest and her partner to come in tomorrow, we’ll open gifts probably Sunday. 

I’m just done.

simultaneously exhausted and bored.  the time at my parents' house and with family and friends took a lot out of me without giving me a lot to replenish what was taken.  This weekend is that for me.  Saturday night to Sunday morning is Christmas with college friends and Sunday afternoon is football with a friend.  Hopefully by the time Sunday night comes around I'll be feeling a lot better.

Having a quiet weekend. Got to send out a painting to a gallery out of state, that’s going to be expensive. 😕 

Fedex ground is pretty reasonable. And last time I used it, UPS has a 40% off code if you’re printing the label online, code is “EASY”.

      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.
