Is it just me, or do you get “grumpy” when the ‘boring self-care’ actually helps?

Staying in doors when things are hard

Even when I know to practice opposite action and do the "right thing"for my mental/physical health, trauma processing and panic makes it very hard

After my therapy session over the phone, I don't have the motivation to go outside. One of those "order food and eat ice cream" days. Its a hard day for me. Can anyone relate?

Still working on treatment

I am under investigation now for sleep related hypoventilation which was discovered when I had supine oxygen desaturation during a scan for pulmonary hypertension.

They have decided that I don't have a lung disease - probably - I do have UARS however - and that I need more investigations. Unlikely to need a CPAP but a different oxygen mask may be needed.

Has anyone had these tests done? And what outcomes from them?

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is Beth . I'm here because I suffer every second, minute, hour, day, week, month.....It's extremely depressing, causes me severe anxiety, I'm in pain all day every day of my life, even on heavy duty medications. Due to all of my illnesses, my marriage suffers, my children suffer along with any friendships. I'm lost in the ocean of loneliness, depression and the #1 Question I continue to ask daily "Am I ever going to feel better?"

Google consider the lilies. It is something I often do when I am really struggling with my lot in life.
