I'm doing okay although the pain is coming and going, there doesn't seem a reason for it but can't see my physio until next week.

In myself I'm doing well.

I am freaking the **** outó I have a headache and want to throw up. I accidentally dented my car by driving it into a concrete post in a parking lot (I was super stressed and i put the car in drive instead of reverse) and now my car has scrapes and a big *** dent in it. Iím in the break room at work and I DO NOT WANT TO BE HERE. Itíll just be another **** show like it always is. And now Iím backtracking and Iím terrified that I forgot to take my meds this morning. Which is making me freak out even more. Help

I almost want to go to the ER right now I just feel so nauseated and sick. I took my meds and Iím just kind of waiting for things to hopefully pass. I took a zofran and a Xanax and so far they arenít working which is a bit concerning. I havenít checked my temp yet. I think I may have a slight one and then I may have to call my hospital. I havenít eaten a lot today so maybe soup will help. I just feel bad asking for so much help.

Way way better than yesterdayó fortunately, no other cars were involved in my collision and the damage seems to be isolated to my front door. I called my insurance and we will wait til I get an estimate on the repairs from from the collision center to determine if submitting a claim is advisable. Took my kitty in for her recheck and her eye infection is gone! Just as well since she is totally over getting her eye drops lol. All in all, a better day than yesterday.

Iím doing ok today. I called my surgeon though because things were getting to be too much pain wise. So he helped me out and I feel better although Iím still nauseated and a bit in pain. Overall I coped well today. My mom and I got into it this morning because I asked her to take my blood pressure because I felt like it was ER type high and she got upset at me because my brother had lost his wallet. So she took it out on me and I retorted back a bit. Then therapy was strange but I handled it well. I donít really think of her as a support person. Like she tryís very hard to be supportive but she just creeps me out and makes me not very responsive to her. Itís not like the support team I had back where I used to live.

Pain on and off today, but as I wasn't working I decided not to dose up on painkillers. I did yoga carefully and it helped short term at least.

I'm okay in myself.

I have a medical appointment today. I'm nervous about it so I'm getting dressed in the middle of the night. Hopefully, I can go back to sleep once I'm dressed and feel calmer.

It's 10am here now, I'm tired with a sleep debt of 1.5 nights (I haven't had this much in a while!!), but happy that I caught up on some job, got another one done 1 hour early, and I've got an extended deadline for the rest without even asking?! So now I have a chance to really just try and do work without being delayed, a normal amount of it every day. That makes me feel very content too rightnow. I also felt very disillusioned early morning having gone through some bad memories about someone again but it helps with moving on and I felt even more freed and accepting of what happened. So coping right now.

I was feeling so wonderful earlier today but now my mood is rather spoiled because I found out that now the washing machine needs fixing. I feel like I just want so badly to be able to make it work like it should again. I wish my riding mower would start. I'm feeling rather helpless in a way. At least I have my push mower. There seems to be little I can count on that's good in life.

Thereís this wedding this weekend that everyone is going to and itís my choice not to go but I do feel a bit left out. But a lot of people are going to be there and Iím uncomfortable seeing a whole bunch of people at one time. Plus Iím kind of stuck at the house until I can get a ride back from someone. And it could be midnight before someoneís ready to head back. I get tired early and then cranky early. I feel like Iíd just be a burden on my mom and super uncomfortable and awkward around everyone. But today besides the anxiety and too much caffeine I coped well. I ate healthy, got out of the house for a bit, and I am overall pleased with how things turned out despite my surgeon not calling today. The pain is still there but itís not a big deal unlike Sunday, Monday and Tuesday when it was almost unbearable.

I'm not coping well. I've had a busy day. I would like to relax now. But I find it difficult. I am sad and lonely. I'm afraid to go to sleep cause I'll just keep waking up.

All day long I've been trying to be involved with anything outside of myself. Distraction usually helps me. But as soon as I finished with whatever it was today, I started to feel depressed & anxious. Maybe I mainly need a good night's sleep.

I think I need sleep as well. I only slept 5 hours. I'm very depressed. I tried distraction but that didn't help. I'm doing housework now. Maybe that will help me feel better and get me tired enough to go back to bed.

IMO, adequate sleep is an important part of healing our depression. I hope you are able to get go back to sleep this morning or get a nap.
