Iím doing really well today. I was posting in the coffeehouse and I saw an old post of mine from when I was with my former boyfriend. It made me sad - I still am. I donít fully understand that because Iím engaged now to a great guy. The sadness worries me. Does it mean anything significant?

Struggling with some health anxiety that's making me feel physically ill (and of course then reinforcing the anxiety, damn it). Sat through a very long, very boring class on Thursday in which (I was so bored) I started ruminating about an ongoing fight I'm having with a colleague. I'd sort of broken free of the ruminating recently, but now I'm back to going in circles in my head.

I woke up feeling like the type of **** that sticks to you for days, but I've managed to slowly, persistently free myself. I feel content this evening, and I am proud of myself.

I think that happens when you get triggered back to a moment & the tender emotions of that time are still attached to that moment in time. Sometimes even smells are recalled that were present then. Like the smell of oil paints in an artist's studio when something caused me to recall being there. I guess our brains keep all that stuff packaged together, feelings & all.

Unhappy Re: How are you coping today? #6

I'm not doing so good right now, but I insist inwardly to be determined & believe it's going to work out.

I have been really awful today. Regardless of what I do to try to feel better today.

Doing much better since yesterday. No idea why. Went to the office, debugged some code that had been haunting me. The "bug" turned out to be minor, although the dread was big. Laughed and talked nonsense with a colleague. During the drive home, the radio played consistently great music. Went to IKEA with my SO in the evening, bought some little things... Slept OK although I've had a persistent headache. Feeling hopeful.
