I'm doing fine today. Having my nephews over since Monday night is taking a toll on everyone. Especially my mom. I got to the store with no anxiety. Kinda hard to be paranoid when you have a loud 8 and 6 year old with you and the attention is on them. We have one full day left with them and then however long until they are picked up on Saturday. Probably early afternoon. Its hard to get out because if I want to get to a store they have to come and then they want stuff. I am so glad I can't have kids because just being around them is driving me crazy.

Not exactly the best of how I would like. Ha ha. But I am so grateful for so many wonderful things, like our forums here.

I haven't felt like cooking in a while but today was different. I tried a yummy Mexican dish (it's only the second time I made it), and it turned out so well that husband had some, even though he said he wasn't hungry.

That made me happy, twice.

I have been doing everything that I can think to do to feel better. I had done some walking in the sunshine. I have watched a movie and taking better care of my physical health.

I feel like throwing up right now. I've actually felt sick for awhile to be honest.

Walked a lot today, almost 9k steps! I normally get less than 4k. I was also walking in heeled boots, so my ankles are sore.

I feel sad, like I do a lot these days. I have a headache. I miss T and I miss my nephew. I don't have a date when I'll next see either of them (due to my changing schedule). I am also hopeful. While none of these feel good, in fact they are all good (except for the headache). It's progress. Being able to miss people is new. If anything I used to have bouts of missing people, and it would push me into a state of emotional denial and flatness. This now is better, though it feels worse.

Mainly I'm just very tired today. I've had a few sodas and some coffee and nothing seems to have worked. I thought I slept decently last night. My anxiety has been fine all day. Physically I feel kinda under the weather. Its hard to tell if its just my anxiety or not. Often when I brush it off as just anxiety thats when its something legit and then when I overeact it turns out to be nothing. It does seem like my SAD is going to be pretty bad this year for some reason. I'm already starting to feel it.

Having a lot of ups and downs. Felt OK at the end of the week. Today started feeling really depressed and worried about the future. A huge fight with a colleague just continues with no resolution. I start to fear that I'm going to walk away from everything and restart my life from zero. Very hard imagining a viable future for myself right now...and time just seems to keep slipping by... I just feel like I've hit a wall in life.

Iím doing okay today although I had a stressful situation at work this morning. It helped I had volunteering straight after work and that took my brain to a different place, grateful for that.

I had a really horrible nightmare last night though and wish I could stop getting those. My brain feels like my worst enemy sometimes.

Volunteering helps me to. Glad you got some relief from that.

I used to watch or read horror stories before bed and that led to nightmares. Glad I stopped that.

Have you talked to your pharmacist or prescriber if any of the meds might make someone more prone to nightmares?

Hope you get some relief. @CANDC

Thanks @CANDC Iím not on meds so it isnít that, no horror stories before bed either - idk why I get the nightmares other than general anxiety (I had a one last night when I couldnít find my shoes so couldnít go to work). I think I just canít switch my worrying off even when I sleep, in the day time I actually do better.
