    Tough Season

    I’m walking through a very tough situation. Please pray for me. My job fell through and is now a legal matter. I must move because I have no income. I cannot understand why this is happening. My heart aches.

    How to cope with regret? Guilt or what if thoughts 💭?

    Recently going through a breakup, somewhat mutual but I brought up the fact that maybe we are going around in circles breaking up and getting back together, I had a bad panic attack/ crying I was stressed/ overwhelmed and they meant well to support me but were comparing me, saying I should be stronger, crying makes me weak etc, English isn’t their first language but they speak it well 🗣️, and I guess I was hurt because I know they meant well but it just made me feel more crappy and stigmatized, they kept going on and on and comparing me to other people etc. I know they loved me and were just concerned, but it sucks i feel regret though I feel in my gut it was problem for the best for both of us. But almost 3 years into a relationship
    It’s still hard to let go. I’m proud of myself for doing a lot better than I expected but it’s hard when you get those emotional breakdowns and are just overwhelmed by everything and life in general.

    Normal EEG test

    So, the EEG came back normal, back to drawing board. it is not siezures so I should be happy, and I guess I am. Just ugh, I want to be able to be active again without feeling lightheaded and it getting worse later in the day.

    Keep having episodes where I can’t stay conscious. I have light headedness/ sluggishness that happens before hand. I attempt to lay down to relieve it and it gets worse after. I can hear what is happening around me during the loss of consciousness but vaguely.

    Fighting it off is the hardest and if I stand go get water trying to walk feels weird. Apparently too vague for doctors to understand. Doctors just keep saying I need to lose weight or see a therapist. I know what anxiety feels like and it is seperate.#Undiagnosed #Disappointed #unanswered

    Now I‘m alone

    Now I'm sitting here with only my best friend; she's the only one I have left. My mother doesn't text me anymore because I told her that it can't go on like this - I'm dying in the relationship. And now it hurts. It hurts to see mother and daughters somewhere who are happy, and to see parents who are good to children and love them. It hurts. I'd like to write to her, but what's the point? #Toxicmom #Toxic #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Depression #Disappointed

    Safe Space #sad #Disappointed #triggered #SexualHarassment #lonely #depressed

    so I've been on this app for 24hrs and I already had a man message me trying to bully and pressure me into sending him body pics of myself. Another request I blocked was from a man who was one person in his profile picture one moment and then suddenly a different person drastically the next time I looked. Are there a lot of scammers on this app?? I joined this app to have a safe space. I imagine ppl prey on vulnerable people on this app... which is very disheartening. I definitely don't want to be harassed or preyed upon like this is a dating app or something.. which isn't ok on a dating app either.. this man was telling me his wife died and he might lose his kids to repeatedly trying to make me feel like I owed him a picture of my body which was extremely triggering.. I did block an report him. I hope he doesn't do this to anyone else on here who may fall into his pressuring.. his choice in words were very manipulative. I'm feeling defeated and hopeless. I've been extremely reclusive no social media or anything and anytime I put myself out there online I start losing faith in humanity... but I am greatful for the positive interactions on here. I have a consult with for a potential new therapist tomorrow and I definitely did not need the messages I received tonight :(

    Has anyone else experienced a considerable degradation of attention by doctors to regular “maintenance” issues since teh pandemic started?

    While I fully rtealise and appreciate the extra strain that health care workers have been under since the pandemic started I am experiencing a complete lack of response or care from my GP this year (2021) to the point that I have been left without refills and effectively forced into withdrawals (OxyContin & Baclofen) because they have failed to respond to me in anything close to a timely manner. The worst situation, involving multiple phone calls and emails it took me three weeks to get a refill prescription. I’m dealing with this again and it’s incredibly unsettling. Just wondering if it’s just my doctors or if it’s something other people are also experiencing? #Fibromyalgia #Annoyed #distressed #Disappointed


    Needing encouragement

    I am what I call "spinning out". My thoughts are caught in that typical repetitive cycle and I can't shake it off. I helpless. Depleted.
    Disappointed. Sad. Frustrated.

    Anyone have any good quotes for tough days/weeks?
    TV shows or podcasts to take my mind off things? Audiobook recommendations? Affirmations? Prayers?

    Hoping a run with my friend will help in the morning but she's in a good place and i don't want to drag her down.

    Please send some goodness, prayers, or light my way.

    Feeling disappointed and frustrated

    I had such a good morning, went to bio rehab ready to work. We did balance today, not my easiest. It's hard when you realise that you cannot feel any sensory input from you leg. It frustrating when something so simple seems so incredibly difficult to do because your leg can't feel or sense how. It's mentally exhausting having to think a limb to move in a way you know it can, because there is no problem with motor function. About an hour after bio my whole spine from cervical to lumbar and inbetween has flared into Neural burning, pain and stiffness. It just so frustrating to want to work hard to have a better future and to enhance yourself in order for you not to get worse and somehow to ge punished by your own body for trying to help it. I know tomorrow will be better and I know I will get up and go on and try again. But right now it sucks! To anyone else whose trying and feeling like they are failing, I'm thinking of you and sending hugs! It makes me think of Nightbirde song It's OK. Right now I'm just a little lost and that's ok. #Pain #Disappointed #frustrated #nervepain #peripheralsensoryneuropathy #discherniations #balanceissues #icandothis #healingjourney
