How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

Recommended Posts

Feeling pretty good the last month. Religiously taking all my multivitamins, supplements, have less fatigue (despite not exercising). I go for short walks, but I really need to increase my activity level.  Have not seen a therapist for months.

I'm struggling a bit. Shitty thoughts. I want to cut myself and draw a smiley face with my blood. No I don't. Stop that shit. Is saying this just looking for attention? Poor little me! No this is bullshit. I'm trying not to sound crazy but reading back what I just wrote 

Many people go through this, it's not objectively all that "crazy." It may sound subjectively "crazy" to you personally, but it is something that many people do, so it's not that unusual, really. It may just be that it's peculiar to you personally because (I'm taking guesses in the dark here) maybe these thoughts are new to you?

For the first time in a long time considering my "Life Situations", I am feeling much more balanced.  I finally got my hormones tamed, which was a big part of my constantly spiraling up and down.  I finally was able to transition from Lexapro (mistake I have made before) to my magic green pills-Imiprimine (Yes, we meet again!)

I find my concentration and outlook are better and I don't mind being alone as much.  I have learned some valuable lessons, as to how people who you think you know, can suddenly just eject you from their lives bc you don't follow their advice.  And actually become upset with you for it.  And tell you that you are trying to "spite them" , by not following it?  Isn't advise supposed to be given freely and the advisor not take offence if someone does things a different way?  Perhaps because one has known their own brain and body for 46 years?  Perhaps I just need to learn that people have their own issues.  And not take things personally because they are fighting their own battle.  Perhaps I will just ask for less advice and/or save it for my therapist.  (Best Idea)  Looking into oneself in meditation also offers wonderful insights!

So I am just answering this post.  How I am feeling?  Good.  And that is a welcome change.  Not here to ask for any advice.  :)

Happy Saturday!

Had a sudden moody, depressive "blip" today for a couple hours. Maybe because I had to get up much earlier than usual, and then I took my meds even later than usual? Was busy with various things & social stuff the last month.  Today, alone with just my thoughts, with nothing scheduled/nothing to do. Been feeling consistently drained & tired.

i need a break from these migraines

 

for non sufferers, a migraine isn't just some flashing light stuff followed by a few hours pain. They are more like a week long experience. With the prior-to-aura (prodrome) and after-throbbing-pain (postdrome or hangover) being dominantly mood disturbance, with some funky dejavu and anxiety and stuff

 

so with migraines every second day lately, my attempted mood charting is full of asterisk about why today doesn't count

have you considered botox?  it's not for everyone, but it was a lifesaver for me.  Insurance covered once I hit 15 days per month that I was accessing symptoms. 

isn't that what that kardashian woman uses to floof her lips up? i've not heard this

It is a thing. For chronic migraine sufferers (15 days a month minimum seems to be the standard). It's available in Australia- try googling "botox for migraines Australia".

Thanks. I'll read up. First blurb said approved 2014, which is more recent than I've struggled this much with them.

Botox is not floofy. Botox is botulinum toxic. In small amounts, it paralyses the muscle into which it’s injected. The premise for cosmetic use is that if you can’t move a muscle in your face, you don’t get wrinkles.

 

If you overdo it, it can look like this:

Note how, despite the fact that she’s smiling, there are no lines at all on her forehead? And it’s kind of shiny? Her forehead and eyebrows don’t move. 

To make something puffy you need a filler. I think silicone lip injections were first, but they’re not the only thing people pump into their lips.

 

If your desires are temperate and your doctor skilled, you can look like this:

If you’re a fucking nut job, you can do this:

I have no idea if silicone is permanent or if it breaks down over time. There are other fillers, like your own body fat, or stuff made of hyaluronic acid, that do.

Yeah, I read the fliers at my dermatologist’s office while I wait. 

For migraine treatment, the majority of the shots go into the back of your neck, down at the juncture of your trapeziums, and within your hairline. There aren’t any cosmetic effects unless they need to do some of your frowning muscles, too.

Interestingly, there is some evidence that Botox can also relieve depression:

Thank you for the education gear, our host-est with the most-est. I now know more about Botox and fake puffy lips than I ever dreamed of knowing. I wonder what I’ll dream of tonight. Puffy lips? Lol Last night I dreamt that husband took all my over abundance of toilet paper hoarding stock out of my bathroom! And I was so confused as to what was going on. I just wanted my damn hoarding stock of TP, man. That’s all.

      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.
