Trig Re: Motivation

It is hard to deal with. I'm glad someone understands.

I had the first of many phone calls that hopefully won't involve crying and then forcing myself not to cry. Yet I need to get this out of me.

Possible trigger:


I don't know what to do. Any way I look at it, something happens to my job. It's good money, and then to add school on top of it.

In class, we are looking at sexuality. and that is a hot button topic for me right now. You think I would be comfortable writing about it but no, I"m not

I"m dammed if I do and dammed if I don't

I can't win. I wish my job was protected but it's not. I could lose my job. ll

thanks for checking in @bpcyclist,

I got past the difficult subject, but it's not all the way gone. I need to be able to talk about anything and be comfortable.

I am facing a partial hospitalization if things don't improve quickly. Or go back to the clubhouse (a mental health outlet that is about the same distance as the place for the partial) I still need to get done my post for the week and finish the quiz. I need brainpower!! I can type but I can't think that well.... weird right?!

Otherwise not really any change. Saw Pdoc today and she made a change that hopefully will help me sleep longer for a while. But I lost confidence in the med. Are meds worth the effort now??

It's like the tootsie roll pop commercial. How many licks does it take to get to the center? 1, 2, 3, crunch, the world may never know. That one. Only it's what does will work best. meanwhile I remain in a state of stress.... and overwhelmed. ll

I am sorry you are stressed out. Can you do something to distract yourself for a little while? Go for a walk? Exercise? Watch something on the TV? Draw?

Do you have a routine you do for when you are anxious? Is there a med you can take? Do you do meditation or yoga or mindfulness? Or breathing? Those things all help me. But the thing that helps me most is exercising.

If you are really still suffering after trying some of these things, I would say a call to the pdoc is in order. She may want to prescribe something in addition to what you have going right now. Hang in there. You can get through this. Keep us posted. ll

The biggest issue is I don't want to any more. I know things I should do but have I given up? Meds don't help, nothing is a distractor. I used my addiction and that didn't help. I should call but I can't ll
