Has something in your life triggered this? (You don't have to answer me but maybe just an awareness that might help yourself?)

Thanks, feeling a bit better, been taking half a riperdal about every 8 hours and then going to sleep for a few hours at a time. Seems to be helping some. I've just been very stressed. I appreciate the concern. I'm very alone in this world. I will pm you some time.

I think all the stress of illnesses and problems with neighbors and then a mammogram all got to me at once. Found out the mammogram was okay just a few minutes ago so that is good. My mom died of breast cancer and I worry too much since she was near my age when diagnosed. Also waiting for my problematic neighbors to move, heard they were. They have been tormenting me for months. Long story but when they move I will have a great relief. And dealing with health issues has been stressuful. I am not taking an antidepressant at this time but need one and am going to see if I can get into the doctor more soon, or I have to wait to the 29th.Thanks for your concern.

Have had a low mood the past couple days but it's starting to improve. It could be because I missed my morning meds for a few days in a row. My eating has actually been okay though. I'm beginning to work through my DBT for Bulimia book. I enjoy learning new coping skills, meditation, mindfulness stuff. I find it extremely helpful.

I bought a wax melter and have a ton of scented waxes, I've been using that and I really love it. It's super relaxing and it actually helps keeps my appetite from controlling me somehow. Aromatherapy seems to be very effective. I also bought a tea kettle and have been drinking some different teas, peppermint, berry herbal, Irish breakfast. The process of making it then sitting down with the warm drink and sipping it is relaxing and stress reducing. I can focus my mind on the taste/temp of the drink and health benefits of tea.

Ordered a worry stone. I used to have the exact one I ordered and I loved it so much. I lost it and spent like a year looking for it convinced it was somewhere in my apartment when I finally gave up and realized I had literally looked in every single possible space/cranny of this place and it was nowhere to be found. So I ordered another yesterday. It was my favorite, it is moss agate and very smooth, small. Perfect for me

Hey anytime! U made me feel welcome here, that's for sure! Sleep can work wonders. Hopefully no nightmares & stuff like that. Stress is wicked when it hits full-blast. It's just awful. I used to have crippling OCD & I'm pretty sure I have PTSD. I hope u sleep well Daily Check In Thread for those with an eating disorder of any kind.

I still have bad ocd and ptsd. I slept so much yesterday that I stayed up all night doing laundry. Really needed to get that done. I had some very relaxing, pleasant sleep, thank you.

That workbook sounds wonderful! I wonder if it would help me, too. Glad you will get yourself another worrystone.
