I coped all day long by deciding to put things behind me and move past my barriers I have put on this and that which mean that I am only limiting myself. And I have also stopped being so wishy washy all of a sudden.

I was actually impressed with myself today having to make big decisions about dealing with Hurricane Idalia. I made a point to talk to as many people I knew in the area as possible to make a informed decision about whether to evacuate or not. This worked very well.

Last year I was in an anxiety bubble about it and made all my choices myself. It ended up being a singular stressful experience driving north finding a hotel near Gainsville for hurricane Ian.

I like that I am willing to reach out to others a lot more now. Easing back into socializing again after a few years of straight episodes.

Pushing outside of the comfort zone can lead to more comfort. Huh! I am cozy tonight in my own space.

not the best.. painful legs, no sleep, and very depressed..

glad it is the weekend though because honestly it feels like the only time I can relax without someone (or something) ruining my day.

Just staying in reading (struggling to concentrate though). I was supposed to go to an event but I said I'll go tomorrow (as it's 3 day anyway) because I don't feel like being somewhere loud and busy. Sometimes I think I make myself worse staying in but whatever.

I woke up feeling a bit depressed but I'm feeling a little bit better now. A few hours ago though I felt horrible and cried.

It's been tough grieving over my brother and dealing with PTSD all at once. It can be exhausting sometimes for me.

I think this is how it goes:

early week: depression
mid week: anxiety
late week/early weekend: relief

Feeling down today so coping a bit by staying at home.

It's very hot which is disappointing as I thought summer was over and I don't feel good when it's too warm. As my husband and I are both chronically ill we're both at home together a lot which is sometimes nice but can also cause tensions. Small things can get blown up out of proportion in a too small bubble of existence.

I'm feeling down like I wish this life would end but don't panic, I feel like that a lot! I have tools to cope with bad days: rest, prayer, meditation, gratitude. I'll get through it fine, I just wish there was a little more joy and a bit less suffering?
