    My fiancé and I are atheists. I was raised Catholic. Baptism, first communion, confirmation...all that stuff. My family will have a fit when I tell them I don’t want the wedding in a church or anything religious. I know toxic people are toxic, even if they’re family, but I’m nervous how they’ll react.

    A lot of times, I don’t know how to feel emotions and how to express them. Also, my social anxiety keeps me from leaving my apartment. I often forget to eat and I don’t have any friends. I’m such a mess of a person.

    I complain about this every month but ugh @ PMS symptoms. Without fail every month I wonder why I'm so like torturously fatigued and it always ends up being the week before my period. My dr appt is next month but it sucks just feeling completely exhausted and like I didn't get any sleep, even tho I did. All I want to do is sleep but I have to work and have a life and bleh.

    I'm really not getting any better emotionally and I'm suffering from severe writer's block. Like, it's been a dream of mine to be a novelist since I was pretty young, but I can't seem to find the time or even desire to do it because I'm so fucking sad all the time. It sucks because I came up with an idea I was actually pretty damn happy with but now it's just sitting in limbo because I suck as a person

    My anxiety is high and I don’t know what to do. I’m also going for a career change which give me more anxiety because I hope to land a job by the end of the year but also I worry about my fur baby

    You don’t suck as a person at all, it’s totally understandable to be frustrated by writer’s block. You didn’t fail because of it, many writers go through the same thing. I guess what I’m getting at is that you can do the best you can and that’s okay, take your time and do what makes you comfortable. I’m rooting for you and I hope you find that idea that sparks a creative fire in you.

    Thank you for the kind words. I still haven't made huge progress since that last post, but I did work on my novel idea a little bit (mostly general outlining stuff) and I'm starting to feel slightly more confident about it.

    It's been a good week tbh. I was reunited with my old work family. We were so super close, bonded by stress and trauma, but like family. Most of us eventually quit and went to different jobs. We all still loosely interact since we're in the same field, but for one of the first times since I quit we've been rly able to hang out. We were in the same training all week and then today we got dinner and played games. It has been fun and lovely. It ends tomorrow so I prob won't see them for a long time again, but it's nice to catch up and see how we've grown and support each other.

  13. I’ve got a perfect storm brewing:
    - got that period depression
    - spent the day with friends yesterday, one who just got married and one who’s getting married in a few weeks. so much spouse talk and that always amplifies the voice in me that’s like “ur unloveable and will die by yourself ha ha!”
    - they also make way more money than me and were talking a lot about vacations they’re going on. at one point they were like “oh one day we should all go to Nicaragua together” (one of them goes to a surf camp there like once a year) “it’s only $1300 everything included!” like sounds fun but I will never be able to afford that
    it’s very isolating having ur friends all at a certain stage of life and ur not there at all
    - also since I suck at staying on top of things my prescription ran out so now I’ll be Zoloft-less for the next few days just when I need her the most

    If it helps, most pharmacies that have a record of you being on a certain med will give you a partial refill while you get things squared away and then just subtract it from when you pick up your main prescription, especially psych meds because of how dangerous it can be.

    We had to do that when my girlfriend forgot to contact her doc to refill her Effexor.

    (At least if you live in the US)

    I'm having trouble with sleeping the past couple of days. Been thinking a lot about how I can have a better life in general. The thoughts I'm having just mess my mood up.

    Feeling really down and depressed. I don’t feel like I belong anywhere. Feel like I’m always ignored and no one cares about me. It hurts very badly to feel like I’m all alone with no one and knowing I’m going to end up alone for the rest of my life. Some people I guess were meant to be alone and I’m one of them. I can’t function alone. The fact that I predicted this when I was young is sad. Sad to know it’s actually reality and there’s nothing I can do about it. It hurts so so bad. Everything is crashing down. Every time things look up for me, it always goes to shit one way or another. I don’t know why this is happening to me. I don’t deserve this. This always happens. Nothing good ever happens I don’t know how much longer I can handle it all. I’m near my breaking point

    Hang in there. You’re going through a lot and what you’re feeling is totally understandable. You’ve had a pretty big life event happen and you’re trying to piece everything together. It’s rough to go through but you can do it. I know I’m just some person on a messageboard but don’t give up, take it one step at a time and move at the pace you feel like you can do. Life is not a race, things will work out for you. Just stay strong, you got people here rooting for you.

    Hang in there bb. I'm sorry you're going through this. I know it's difficult but you're strong and you can do it! I know it sounds corny but the energy you put out into the world matters. If you have been convinced you're going to be alone forever, be careful that you're not putting up walls as a consequence and creating a self fulfilling prophecy. I believe you have more control than you think! I truly believe that people sense what we put out there. When we believe we're unworthy and destined to be alone, we close ourselves off and don't let others in, and our relationships suffer as a result. Then we let that fuel our negative thoughts and we're convinced we were right all along. We can rewrite the narrative by changing our mindset. Which isn't easy at all and I think is something we work on throughout our lives, but I def believe you're capable and worthy of happiness!

    I know what you mean about being at different points in your life from your friends; I compare myself to others all the time and it seems to get worse the older I get. But then I have to remember that that is entirely on me - I'm the one comparing myself, I'm the one impressing upon myself that "at this age I should have done x,y,z!" Any good friend is going to love you through every phase of your life, no matter where you're at in your journey. Sometimes it has to be a very conscious process to be comfortable with where you are at in life but it's different for everybody so give yourself the space to grow into yourself!

    It’s hard to go out in public with the state I’m in. I just want to start crying every time I see people

    I try to push myself to pursue my art but it’s been hard lately, I just don’t feel like doing it. I have a bunch of pictures, some I’ve edited and put touches on it and I just don’t care enough to post them. I just feel like people don’t fucking care if I do or don’t.

    Honestly, I’m just tired of these highs and lows. I’ll feel good and then I’ll just feel like absolute shit within a day. I get my hopes up and then they just fall down hard. I hate this.

    I'm just so tired of thinking about everything Prestigious

    Been doing, well, not great. Largely fell off the earth the last week besides dragging my ass to work. Just feel like I'm drifting and miserable. I also feel weirdly jealous of people able to stay busy. I just work and then curl up in bed and read lately. I just never do anything. And I don't mean go out, but like write or something--making an effort seems beyond me and I fucking hate it. I'm doing fine in my job and all, but feel like I'm just sort of coasting. I've been reading a lot, like 3 books and 6 vols of manga in the past week alone. Finished one on commute home today and immediately cranked into another.

    Got curious that maybe weed would help and signed up for some uber eats type delivery thing because it's the fucking bay area and of course you can. Then i chickened out from trying anything because I don't know what the fuck I'm doing, just thought maybe it could help me focus or feel less depressed. I dunno. I'm a mess.

    I think I am totally burnt out from work. I feel like I’ve been working non stop since March, taking on project after project and it’s just relentless. I’ve had a few days off here and there but I feel I’m in desperate need of a complete unplug and reset. My head is just not in the game right now. I’m constantly tired and I find it hard to focus on anything, even non work stuff. I need to get away
