Default Re: How are you coping today? #6

I got my dentist appointment out of the way. It was pretty much pain free. I've had needles in way worse places then in my mouth and they were not fun. One was downright traumatic. So novacaine was a piece of cake. Especially with how much numbing gel she put on before the shot. It cost me $487 to get 2 minor cavities fixed. Considering how much soda I consume daily I should consider myself lucky that I got off so easy with just the 2. Now I go back in April just for a 6 month cleaning.

Then Thanksgiving is going to be a bigger deal then I thought and my mom and I argued about it. We are staying 2 nights instead of just overnight. I am worried about a couple people who will be there who weren't orginally part of the plan. Also I'm worried about catching Covid again. Then theres this bad anxiety and I don't know if its med related or situational. But without a therapist until the start of December and all the other stuff going on, I've been quite ornery bordering on angry today.

I still donít have emotions under control when triggered. Itís freeze or fight then turned inward crying. Heís still the one, the button presser. Itís not even always him doing anything wrong, often just terrible communication issues, chronic misunderstandings.

I go into a freeze mode when there's a dangers (if i feel its a dangers), learned behaviour cause freezing would de-fuse *his* anger

I understand how you feel about the holidays. I understand how you feel about having covid because everyone who lives with me had covid.

I didn't take a shower for the second day in a row. But I got my laundry done which I've been bad at. I'd like a valium right now but I'm already 2 days short and I've gotten talked to by the pharamacy about the system or whatever and filling it early too many times.

I have been feeling really awful today. So I decided to watch some Christmas movies on Hulu as well as self help videos. I was thinking that it might help me feel better.

I just ate two of the mini lindt chocolate bears from a package that I was suppose to give to my psychoterapist as a gift

I am on my period and i have been not touching sweets for two/three weeks

Yesterday when I came home and unpacked my groceries I was looking at those chocolate bears knowing that they would have been safer locked somewhere

So I continued my scarf project on loomknit that will also be part of the little gift

Today I had a discussion with my mother and i went straight to the chocolate.

Now.
I wonder if I could save the survived bears and maybe packing them in a chiffon bag or something. But since it is food idk. It would be not very proper

I'm thinking of the Wednesday before Thanksgiving 2018 when I ate something that didn't agree with me and I puked my guts out that night. Not the night you want to be sick. I kind of feel the same way tonight. Overall I coped well besidee the nausea.

Coping quite well really considering yesterday was the worst day I'd had in a while - very dark. Bounced back satisfactorily though.
