Today I think I feel like I'm coping a little better than recently. I mostly attribute that to reading posts, including different forums here. I also keep purposely remembering things I learned in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Had a good morning and afternoon, but felt frustrated later as donít feel Iím allowed to truly speak my mind here. Iíd love to be more honest but just get responses like ďthatís just how it isĒ or some other kind of push back against my honesty, even when Iím not ďbeing snappyĒ (according to mum - aka the smallest hint of sharpness in my voice). I know itís not good for me, but Iím still afraid of being as direct as I want. Itís not even things that anyone can fix, so maybe I should just save it for my diary.

I didnít sleep very well last night so I had a lot of caffeine today. But I felt pretty good. Right now I feel kind of down about Covid and what not. But I did ok today.

I was feeling burnt out but now feel ok. Life continues. I wanted to cut back my hours at work because I was really feeling bad but now feel I can manage. I was so wasted that I could not wake up and slept for 12 hours. I woke up and cleaned my apartment. Now, I am doing my laundry. I think the stress I feel from work is manageable but at times feels like it is not.

Dipping into a book on CBT which sometimes helps.

Default Re: How are you coping today? #2 1/2

one of the things I always comment on when I post to these check-in threads, is the quality of my food

yesterday I had undercooked scampi, so needed a few snacks after to fill me up. I didn't sleep.

today I have been talking to one of my email friends brendan for most of the day. he has a doctors appointment tomorrow for some blood tests, and he's a bit anxious (so reasuring him it will be fine), and I told him that when he gets back he can vent all he likes to me (that's why I'm their!)

not much in terms of productivity. watched some tv, but triggered by

Possible trigger:


listened to some music (on atlantic storm)

that's about it

I'm having the worst day, It's not even 10 am and I am hating everything about myself: my shoes, my face, my clothes etc. etc. I wish I were someone else. Today I can see I won't be coping with anything. Gonna spend all day and night in bed and hope things change tomorrow.

It's raining at the moment. That always puts a smile on my face. I'm trying to wake up so I can have a good day. I'm just waiting for my Tylenol to kick in. Then I will read and relax to cope.
