    Worst Mental Health Day I’ve Had in Ages

    Hello all, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been on here. I’ve officially had the worst mental health day I’ve had in ages today, and it all began yesterday evening.

    My best friend told me last night that it might be best if she and I not talk for a while. Her husband was angry with her, and told me it was probably a good idea if we wait until she gets things sorted out at home. (NOTE: I have never made a pass at her, and she, her husband, and I are all good friends, but typically it’s she and I who hang out together the most, though we’re always honest and sincere with each other and him if we do something, such as go to the movies together. He trusts me enough to know that I won’t take advantage of her.) I said okay, but then I started to worry, and all the typical worst case scenarios filled my head about the sudden state of our friendship. Things only got worse when I discovered that she unfriended me on Facebook, and her husband completely blocked me.

    We had talked earlier this week about grabbing dinner together (all 3 of us hanging out and watching a movie), but for some reason yesterday he snapped and got angry with her. So here I am respecting her wishes and not texting her or anything, but instead waiting for the time when she feels like things have settled down before she texts me again.

    However, my anxiety has been sky high with worst case scenarios, because a similar thing happened with another close friend of mine who ghosted me after being friends with me since he and I were in High School, and I’m terrified that this is going to happen again and I’m going to lose my best friend.

    I had a panic attack in the middle of the night last night because of it, and haven’t been able to shake this constant worry and fear, and anxiety. I’ve felt uneasy all day and have just felt like crying. #BipolarDisorder #Anxiety #PanicAttacks #badmentalhealthday #worry

    A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

    Hello my friends. Yes... It is me again.

    Today i had quit my job that I was hired at about a week ago. I barely could make it through my day yesterday evening. It was quite awful because of the fact that I had stayed late, and did not get to go to sleep until closer to midnight. I struggled because I had to take #Medicine for my #Insomnia . I know how much I have been struggling for years with this disorder. The job started out kind of fun, but was lacking proper training. I realized that most employees were new, and kind of just thrown into the mix of store operations. One of the managers had a #personality clash with me. She came off very harsh, and snippy which made me so #nervous . I was #Crying about it, and could not seem to get myself out of that #worry .

    I read somewhere that those who have #BipolarDisorder also have a connection with #Insomnia . Some may have reason to believe that it has to deal with a wandering mind due to a hypomanic episode. Yet, I think they fail to understand that it is not always the reason why.

    I have a serious case of #DeathAnxiety that does not seem to go away. It has gotten better since my father had passed away, as I feel a little more comfortable with the facts that this happens to us all. However, I am still struggling. Each day that passes is another day completed of my life and I do not know when God will call me home. There is this weird feeling that I get in my chest that creates this #Weird thought process. I feel this hallowed out sensation in my chest, and I also experience a feeling like I need to whine or cry or yell "I do not want to die." Sometimes I call out for my #Dad who is no longer with me. Therefore, I noiced I have reached out to my #mom a whole lot. I #cherish the time that I have to live.

    If you have made it this far through this message, I thank you.
    I really would love a #reply .

    Life will never stop sending you triggers and obstacles to deal with. It is therefore up to you to conquer these challenges within yourself.

    Up anxiety for work tomorrow

    It almost 3:30 and I’m just up thinking about going to work tomorrow. I’ve moved shifts to what I hoped was a better shift but a new coworker (new hire) who’s been training with the person I partner with at work is just super rude. She acts like she knows it all because she worked in healthcare and is a CNA. She’s said things to me that honestly hurt so much that I came home and cried. I know she won’t be on this shift longer but the person i work alongside with seems to like her and is being kind of harsh to me. I gave a speech to people who are being dishcarged at the inpatient facility and he told me that it was too long. Meanwhile 3 clients told me it hit home for them and that it was really good. Bottom line, I can’t help feel like I’m being treated slightly unfairly because of my lack of healthcare experience. I’ve been there for a month now and I’ve received negative feedback from most of my coworkers. One coworker just told me that they don’t know how to say anything nice and to not take it personally but I am just anxious to be around these people who just say such negative things to me. I’m just asking for #Support I have severe #SocialAnxiety in these situations and I’m just #tired of dealing with judge mental and negative coworkers. #Depression #worry #Work
