    Weight Gain

    I know I have a lot to be thankful for, but I’m very unhappy about my weight. I’ve been trying to lose the weight, but I’m struggling. I used to be so confident. Don’t get me wrong I can still be confident, but when I look in the mirror I don’t recognize myself. I’m just unhappy about it. I could lose the weight quick, but my family and doctors advise me otherwise. I’m tired of not feeling like myself. I just want to be happy. I hope I can lose the weight. If I keep gaining weight I don’t care what anyone says… I’ll find a new doctor and my family can keep their advice to themselves. #weightgain #unhappy #struggling


    Advice on Resigning from my Job

    I recently sent a resignation letter to my place of employment. My last day is not for another month. I am really unhappy and wish I didn’t have to work at my place of employment this last month. I just feel it’s too stressful of a work environment and I am barely making it through the day most days. When I think of this month ahead of me I get depressed and anxious. I wanted to just quit on the spot but felt obligated to stay on to complete the project I have been planning for months. Everyday I go to work I feel my talents and skills are not utilized and I have to do a lot things I do not enjoy. Every Sunday evening I get a knot in my stomach and anxiety about what is to come with my job. I feel so unhappy. What are some strategies to push through the next month? How do I keep pushing when I have so little energy and mental space to offer. #unhappy #Support #Workstress #Anxiety #AnxietyAttack



    I recently went to my psych, and as I sat there and cried and begged her to give me something that was going to make me happy and the ability to smile. She said, “It doesn’t matter, what I prescribe you, if you don’t change your environment and situation, it won’t help.” #BipolarDisorder #unhappy #irrational

    I don’t like myself when I drink. #Alcohol #Anxiety #unhappy #oversharing

    Feeling really anxious, I don’t like the person I become when I drink whilst unhappy, I get dramatic, I get emotional, I start over share personal things, I also seem to become involved in gossiping, which I really don’t like! I basically turn into everything that I don’t like about person. I know that it is because deep down I am struggling, and I need to give myself some empathy, I’m just wondering if anyone else on here feels the same way or does the same things? Lately I thought I was getting better, but this weekend it happened again... #Alcohol #cryforhelp #Anxiety



    I was never the kid that made her bed or did her laundry without being told. As a matter of fact I as a teenager I use to take my clothes to the local ‘wash, dry, fold’ to avoid listening to my mother’s mouth and so I wouldn’t have to by new clothes for something clean to wear. It wasn’t that I was a dirty person, I just felt I could be spending my time doing other BETTER things like reading, writing, painting, NOT doing laundry because bleck.
    Now I find myself the adult who manic cleans to soothe anxiety and has become irrationally clean in her environment because that seems to be the only way I feel as though I have any control. The weight of my former responsibilities that seems to bog me down, now keep me grounded. I reach for a sponge instead of a razor, I no longer cut but clean. I clean until painted joints scream, my back throbs, and the pores in my sinuses remind me that bleach is not oxygen.
    As I sit here writing this I have the urge to mop my floor but can’t because I am working and taking a short break. Is this not the same? Trading one bad habit for another in sheep’s clothing? I am not self harming in a traditional sense anymore but I am purposefully running myself into the ground to feel something other than anxious, upset, or anger.
    Granted there are no bandages but aren’t my scented candles technically covering wounds too?

    I couldn’t feel more unheard than when I’m sitting in a hairdresser’s chair and I tell them what they want and I end up with what THEY want anyways. And to top it off I get to PAY for it. #Anxiety #Depression #unheard #unhappy


    Bad day!

    Today wasn’t good at all! My son’s teacher texted me about how he’s not performing well in class. My girl lashed out at me when I was truly being sincere about her well being. I can’t sleep. I just don’t feel the love right now. I just don’t know at the moment. When you feel like you’re not getting the love & support you need from your loved ones...it drains you. I actually feel better by getting this off my chest tonight. Peace & Love #Depression #alone #unhappy #Worried #Love
