I've been losing weight. I've lost 11 pounds so far. I'm walking on my own with much less pain. I just increased my Effexor. Today is day 3. I feel much better. I'm having a good day.

Tonight was a little difficult for me. But I just read about two DBT skills that seem silly, but they worked. I did a half-smile and I turned my palms up while extending my arms. I took it one step further by closing my eyes and breathing deeply. I don't understand it, but it shifted my mood. I was able to play my game and have fun. Now, I am motivated to take a shower. I'm thinking I will put my new clothes on.

@Breaking Dawn and @raging vortex thank you so much for making me feel loved and appreciated here. ❤ (and all of you. They just happened to have tagged me)

I know I don't get here quite as often anymore, so that was a long ago post. Haha But well here I am. Hello!

I'm actually here today to share my friend a link about ADHD that describes things I've been going through with nearly 98.9% accuracy! Very interesting! So meds for this may be needed, but I'm hoping to wait till after Covid goes away before experimenting again.

I'm hanging in. Pms once again kicked my *** moodwise, and today and last night I've been suffering the physical pain. (Which actually tends to take my mind away from mental or emotional pain, so that is better). But yea, pain, and what do you know? My painkillers expired last June! 🤦*♀️ So I'm in bed. Ugh! Sucks!! But I must be grateful I can actually take the rest I require. I really don't know how other women can do it! Maybe it's not as bad or is better managed by meds for them, but this is seriously debilitating for me! 😢

But we carry on, right? Ugh! Lol 😊

I've been ill today. I didn't take care of my sugar yesterday and I'm paying for it today. I've slept most of the day. My cats have been with me, which is a comfort.

I've had an interesting day. I was feeling down but then I worked on some music. That helped. I've stayed busy all day. It's late now and I want to keep working. I've been focused on my living room. I almost have it done.

I finally cleaned up my living room. I had a company come out and remove my donation/junk pile. My place looks so much better. I feel better.

back to overeating, and yesterday wasn't good at all

I had potato chips, candy and chocolate, a mcdonalds (20 nuggets, fries and a cola), felt full after that and had more potato chips anyway.
