I was super annoyed this morning. But I kept it to myself. My doctors appointment went great. But in the waiting room I was with all these pregnant women or women who just had babies and some of their husbands were with them. So I felt self conscious and out of place. But the nurses and doctors were very professional and showed zero judgement. Then I just hurried down the stairs after my appointment and I didnít see if anyone was looking at me. But I got the answers I wanted and were surprised to get so easily.

Now Iím trying to cope with massive Valium resistant anxiety. I took a zofran and then my 20 Geodon and I ate crackers and Iím trying to rewind. I ate today but Iím still low on calories. But Iím trying.

Things were going fine until I got an email from my therapist. I think that may have jumpstarted my PMS because Iím super down right now and kinda hungry for potato chips which Iím not normally hungry for.

Iím worried about the lack of traffic on this site recently. I donít mean to be a **** but these last couple days I seem to be the one holding up the site from being shut down. Thereís hardly been anyone on and threads that were going strong even a week ago seem to be dying down.

Itís a bit concerning since MSF is the only place I can be really honest.

I just took my nighttime meds. That's how I'm coping. I will go to bed early.

Had friction with h, but went on errand with son. Coping well. The friction now only lasts an hour and is them over, reset, repeat, whatever.

I'm sorry. I might be one of the culprits. I've been depressed & playing more games than posting. I'll try to post more. I wish you well.

I haven't been sleeping enough for a long time & sometimes lately I fall asleep at odd times. Like today, I woke up & realized it was almost noon & I had slept several hours, maybe 4 or 5. I'm still very tired. But I think, over all, I'm coping ok. At least compared to a while ago. Best wishes to everybody.

I have two days off this week. I slept through most of the day yesterday. Today, I will go out and enjoy myself. Life is not bad. I am still happy. May be, my medication works too well? I don't know but I am doing well and feel great.

I ate out for the last time for at least the next few months. I am happy. I ate a cobb salad and had a chocolate parfait. It was delicious!! Life is good for now! I will try to watch the opening of the Tokyo Olympics and see how it goes without spectators.

I guess Iím coping ok. I did some online retail shopping though that wasnít really necessary. Iím eating today I guess. My moods and anxiety are mostly in check. I got out of the house this morning. My mom asked if I was ok and she never asks that. I feel fine just a tiny bit off but itís most likely injection related and a bit of anxiety about my surgery. The therapy situation isnít really bothering me today. And Iím honestly really starting to forget my transference T which is slightly annoying because I donít want to forget her. But itís like that part of that song I really like that she read the lyrics to. The part that goes ďcut my hair and I found me a new girlfriend. Looking for another story I can tell.Ē I just donít want to go through this ordeal again with my current therapist when she switches me over in September.

But yeah Iím coping well today but I probably just have injection fatigue right now. I plan on getting it right before I go to bed so I can avoid any hunger since it can make me pretty hungry the night I get it.

I was feeling pretty bad this morning. I didn't want to do anything. But I made myself clean this litter box and fix myself some food. I feel slightly better now.

I'm coping okay. I am still really anxious about being on Klonopin even though I know I probably need it for now. It's like my brain fluctuates every once and a while to tell me that I either should be on the Klonopin and then sometimes my brain pings me that I shouldn't be on it. I cannot make up my mind!

Iíve been hanging on today. I lost it a bit this morning but my mom and I agreed to a compromise. The rest of the day I was fine with my visible moods and anxiety. I wasnít productive though and Iím not really sure how to be productive for the foreseeable future. I canít go back to work right now which I really want to do and Iím working on my weight issue. The only projects I have to do is I have to hang up pictures in my room. Everything I own is clean and organized. Nothing is a mess. I just canít find anyway to be productive. The TV shows I watch I should probably save for when Iím recovering. I have a few books but Iím not sure I can concentrate on them.

Itís just tough. Iím not bored I just feel kind of guilty I canít find anything to do.

Sorry I just saw this now. I think itís just me. I shouldnít be blaming anyone else. The last time I remember things being lively on this site was in 2018. I personally think I am too focused and reliant on MSF and I should probably take a break to find myself. Not a month long break like before, but Iíve sometimes spent all day on this site and I donít think itís very healthy to be posting nonstop.

@Mountaindewed, I didn't feel like you were blaming anyone. I felt sorry for you & others who are consistently posting while I might be clicking & not saying anything. I got to thinking, these are support forums, & I should participate more, because the support is a two-way street. So thank you for saying what you did. That actually helped me see what I was doing & I really felt sorry. I'm afraid I still won't be as open as others are, but I can at least participate.

I'm just trying to relax as best I can. I have fresh air coming in the house right now. And I'm trying to keep my cats happy. I'm also listening to rain sounds. It's soothing.
