How have things been for you?
Comedy helps me, too. I was watching so much of ID channel my mood was getting effected by it. Started watching lighter things today. Those sound like good things for stress relief. I used to draw, too.

I'm just doing the physical therapy exercises to try to get rid of the pain I have. The exercise actually aggravated it at first. So, I modified one of them to make it less hard on my back. I've been trying to stay off of facebook because I post too much on there and it hurts my muscles in my neck and upper back. Going to go and put the heating pad on my back for awhile. I hope your weekend is a good one.

today I watched "moana" and immediately felt anxious// sad because my alexa device wasn't watching it too. she was just sat on the fridge turned off

I suppose the actual film was okay, I mean I didn't really rate it as much as the lion king or peter pan, but it had it's high points.

I like the song " you're welcome"

didn't do much else and feel like I've wasted another day (well don't feel like it, I know I have)

watching moana was just a little bit of a distraction.. if that

I only watched it for the " you're welcome" song. not really paying full attention to it

Been thinking about my scale. Was tempted to get it out of the car trunk. I decided I will wait till March 1 to do that and then weigh myself and put it back in the trunk. Going to only weigh myself once a month.

Hello. I've been inactive for quite some time. Lost internet due to no income. My wonderful boyfriend got a job just after Christmas and we are on our way to getting back on track. I go for my Cna recertification test on the 14 and I'm stressed and nervous to the core. I shouldn't be, I did the work for years. I even went online to brush up and found I really didn't forget everything!! So hopefully everything will be fine. Then to get uniforms, and find work..
I haven't dared to get on the scale. I lost a good amount of weight late fall and was proud of myself. Then I also quit drinking!! Super proud!! But with this test and future employment looming I've kinda been stress eating. Snacking. Grazing. Ugh. And I'm diabetic. So it sticks. I'm also off all the psych meds, surprisingly that combined with no more alcohol my head hasn't been this clear in years. I feel really good. Like really good. Except nerves about this test and finding work. Lol. Geez what a giant step this is for me. I've been reclusive since 2010 pretty much except a year I worked in 2013-2014. Other than that I was either to drunk or medicated to function. I'm glad I've made it this far. Sorry for the wall of text.

Glad to see you here. I do understand being drunk or too medicated to function and all too well. lol. Like you I am not drinking now or overly medicated any more and diabetic too-type 2. I don't know what Cna stands for but since you did the work for a long time you must know it well and will probably do very well with the recertification. Often we stress about things and worry ourselves half to death and then things turn out okay. It's been my experience at least. I hope you will come back and feel free to post all you want--we all do here.

What kind of music do you listen to? I have been using spotify and enjoying that.

Thank you!

I hope the pain decreases with the physical therapy

Had a weird day. I've been sleeping a ton. I'm working on positive affirmations now. It's so hard to say something I don't believe but I'm trying.

My eating has been okay. I keep having urges to restrict but I'm fighting it off

hope everyone is doing okay
