I've been watching reruns of Emergency! with Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe before bed lately. They get themselves into some interesting situations.

Just a warning - i made the joke while watching "Howard's End" - that a friend dragged me to - that it should have been called "Howard Never Ends"! Actually i saw it again recently and was able to follow the storyline this time and quite enjoyed it.

Oh yeah, Randolph Mantooth! What a cutie! I do like the mountain side rescues.

Lotta good shows in the olden days. And Julie London at the hospital they always go to.

Glad to hear that! Hope it works out.

Looking at haircuts again. In my current mood I probably should not do anything because I would probably go shorter than I really want. But there's SO many cute ones I'm finding pics of, I wish they showed what they look like from the front too. I just feel like changing myself up all the way around... it's a season of unsettled-ness...

Yay, solved my first Duotrigordle! (Been trying since @@ mentioned it about a week ago.) Felt lots of pressure when I was down to one extra guess with nine words left to solve, but I got there.

Kilordle is actually quite easy, but I have found doing it every now and then helps me a great deal with Wordle and Quirdle. I need to try Duotrigordle though.

Default Re: Couch 238: Appreciating Small Progress Couch

Lately, I feel like my friends don't understand me when I try to explain about problems with accessing care for my mental health. I also don't feel like I have a lot of options for my mental health. It is making me feel depressed. I try to explain to my friends but they don't get it. I also don't feel encouraged or supported by my friends (in real life, not on here). I try to tell them what would be encouraging to hear, and I had to tell one friend that what she told me kind of hurt my feelings but I am remembering that she cares about me and that I think she loves me (she never really says it so I don't know for sure). I feel like I am all alone, cast about with no way to get appropriate help.

Hey slumber. You probably dont remember this, but when Bill Clinton became president, everybody was, "so what is Hillary's recipe for chocolate chip cookies?" She got mad. She was like, heres my recipe for universal health care b*****es!

You are hillary here. Youre just on a different plane. Your friends are at the cookie recipe plane. We are all hillary here. The books we've read, the time we've spent in t, discussing here - the knowledge on the Couch alone bowls me over sometimes.

But who doesnt appreciate an excellent cookie?

It's hard for people to "get it" if they don't have any or have little experience with mental health. And even if they do have experience, they can't read your mind what you need. Even with L: she doesn't know what I need all the time. Sometimes she guesses right, other times she needs me to tell her what will help.

I've been learning and practicing telling others exactly what I need. They have been more than willing to provide me with what helps. Even my family who usually suck at supporting me have gotten better since I've been more direct. Be as specific as you can. Whether it be a certain reassurance, encouragement, acknowledgement, mirroring, etc., or if you just need a hug.

Thanks, Couchies.

It's just hard when your support people aren't being very supportive. Dr's aren't being supportive. Etc. I just feel like I'm screwed.

Default Re: Couch 238: Appreciating Small Progress Couch

I am being inpatient today. I am waiting on T to text me back and let me know if I am overreacting. (I probably am!) I sent her a long text....probably should have been an email....describing a WhatsApp conversation I had with a friend. I just felt like my friend was totally misunderstanding my frustration
trigger for SH/Medical
Possible trigger:


T must be in session all day because she usually will respond within a few hours. It's okay that she hasn't, I know she would if she could. It's just I'm being inpatient! So it is good for me to learn to sit with the impatience and see where it leads.

trigger for dental work
