Default Re: How are you coping today? #6

Some time in the near future I will have to be either moving in with my mom in a small two-bedroom house, or into a low-income housing apartment whenever the next one becomes available. I don't like how I'm going to be able to do either of them. I am SO scared to live on my own and have to go to the store or get gas myself. Living with my mom would be different-- eventually I'd resent her--- for what?! My situation?! What's the saying- we kick those we love...??And we'd get on each other's nerves like mad. Not too much space in that house but I would feel safer. I'd feel more stuck too. How do I decide this?!! Also, what do you all do when you're anxious about something and just.can Not get it off your mind. I've tried distractions. Doesn't work. For a few minutes but then I'm right back to thinking about it all again. Ooohhh I don't know what to do!!!!!

I feel like a mess. I have my period and I'm assuming this amongst other things is exhausting me. I cried a bit on the train today. Just like 3 or 4 tears, easily wiped away. I did not see them coming. Therapy felt intense the last 2 times. Perhaps that is another reason. Maybe T is testing my limits.

I do this thing that I'm not quite sure is healthy or not. I'm not even sure why I do it. Maybe I just legit like doing them and theres no ulterior motive. Basically when I'm in my homestate I like to go to all the stores I went to before Covid got really bad. And I'm not sure if its because it was right before my life got turned upside down, or if it has something to do with my old therapist and the video sessions. I've never really figured it out though.

I think I did good today. I was kinda crabby at one point, but I think it was mostly my mom.

Mountaindewed we all have our vices. What I "turn to" in such hours of crises is something that has almost killed me a couple times. Would you care to share to the board? If not, feel free to write me. I will listen.

That is understandable. We feel like that with our family. Take it easy on yourself.

HI @ladyofmistakes, hope you're managing well with your new situation. Can definitely relate to having to adjust to change, yes.

Yeah, I can see how doing things on your own will be a great adjustment for you. I understand. What I'd probably do is to really start to accept, in your mind, the new reality you'll be facing; the new challenges, and plan ahead in advance for what you will need to do.

Maybe start by doing small things on your own first, and then slowly build up from there to the bigger things little by little, day by day, becoming more independent. You'll be proud of yourself for achieving these things, for pushing through the fears, and you can give yourself a pat on the back for reaching out to find solutions too. Maybe the 'doing small things first' can be the distraction for you, from the anxiety of thinking about it. And perhaps apply this principle to changing your approach with your mom as well - to one of peace and tolerance, love - all of these kinds of things. Because it's all about changes taking place.🙂🙏
