I'll post here, since it was mentioned above, but Matt's double hernia surgery went really well today. He is just chilling, and I'm doing my best to help take care of him. ^_^

Oh damn, I had that same surgery ~2 years ago. Best wishes for recovery - healing can take awhile, but you'll get through it!

I’m pretty sure I have an undiagnosed autoimmune disorder (or multiple ones) and lately I’ve been feeling like absolute shit, plus my anxiety and depression have been at an all time high (probably due to feeling like shit, I’m hyper sensitive to changes in my body). Invisible illnesses fucking suck, being barely able to live your life but then blood tests only saying “you’re basically healthy other than your cholesterol being at the upper maximum of normal” (yes, it is possible to be a fat fuck and not be diabetic or have high blood pressure, just like super fit and assumed to be healthy ppl drop dead of massive heart attacks at 43) is so goddamn frustrating and I’m just tired of it.

Honestly an alarming amount of people have autoimmune disorders, so don't for a second let people tell you how "unlikely" or "improbable" it is without a proper diagnosis. Rooting for you!

You don't see me going to ice cream socials and not eating ice cream and socializing.

Just wanted to pop in and say I'm not super depressed or anything, but more just close to going stir crazy from being cooped up in the house by myself because my mobility is still limited. A lot of sleeping, laying around, zoning out on pain meds, being bored / listless, and eating a ton of Corn Flakes. My real fear is slipping into a state of mind similar to the times I was unemployed and felt like such hopeless utter trash I spent several inconsolable months+years in bed and all my financial plans went to hell. Not that medical leave can jeopardize my current job, but not being able to do much can make me feel worthless. That familiar feeling of tug of war in my brain of needing to feel productive, but no energy or will to do anything.

 

Also sometimes I just want to reach out to friends for some comforting human interaction, but it feels like I'm only capable of 2 extreme states that are at odds with each other:

1. attempting any kind of socializing becomes immediately draining and I run out of steam, or

2. I'm going to ramble too much, come off as desperate and annoy the shit out of someone. Is this why people have Twitter? Just a way to release your thoughts into the void instead of keeping them tucked away?

Have Dee buy you a bunch of perler supplies. Make NES perler murals from bed!

 

Just one thought to help keep yourself occupied while recovering and it's a silly one but still. It's likely better than slipping into the insanity that is the Twitter void. (though....you could show your perlers off on Twitter....fuck!)

 

Feel free to ramble here though. We gotchu. =)

as someone who is on twitter way, way too much: yes that is a large part of why. i spend my work day basically alone so i dont have any kind of conversations or small talk most of the time unless you count my boss who i have literally nothing in common with or my patients, 90% of whom were born before 1950.

Brain stuff is funny when you recognize it, although it still feels bad.

 

I'm currently involved in multiple things with my neighborhood that have been taking up my time. The main one is a project to get 200+ trees planted in my neighborhood, and I'm donating my time and efforts to make that happen. It's not eating up all my time but a non-zero amount of my free time has been going toward this effort for the past month. And I'm excited about it, I'm proud of it, I feel good about it. A few months ago I got involved in going to some city budget planning meetings to petition for some attention be focused on my neighborhood because one of our streets has been neglected for over a decade and has a bunch of problems that are impacting lower income residents, handicapped residents, and children walking to school. Again, it does take up time that I'd rather be spending doing other things, but it also feels good to do something.

 

However, when I'm sitting at home I don't think "I'm spending my free time for good causes that positively affect myself and my neighbors, I can relax knowing that". No, I think "I should be playing my guitar or something and I'm a real turd for not being more productive." But at least being able to recognize that thinking is a huge help for me.

Brain stuff is funny when you recognize it, although it still feels bad.

 i've mentioned it a few times in this thread; this has been huge for me this year. i've gotten myself to a very good place in life and have read up on some of my problems and holy shit did it feel like a physical weight lifted off of me when i learned how some of the things i really hate about myself are related to my other mental issues...then the slow realization that understanding why something is painful/ shitty/ frustrating beyond belief doesn't necessarily make it feel any better. thankfully i'm pretty dedicated to getting past this stuff so the 'why' at least gave me a better footing to be proactive and not let it poison other good parts of my life/ mind.

 

i've also had some shitty realizations with this, like the fact that i'm probably never gonna be fully 'okay' and the issues i haven't resolved already are likely things that i am going to have to learn to cope and live with for the rest of my life. I mean, i guess its good to be aware of but i think when i was at my lowest i always secretly hoped to find a way to just make everything stop. SURPRISE! thats not exactly how things work. i'm very lucky though, i have at least turned enough of my life around that this doesnt feel hopeless; just feels like i will always have to be aware of how i am.

I've been focusing way too much on all the negative crap on social media recently that, while I want to argue against what I see as knee-jerk reactions and gross misjudgements, I was ultimately reminded that (most) people are stuck in their ways and opinions and I can't really do much to change that, so why beat my head against that particular wall and get myself stressed out about shit I can't control?

 

Just gotta live my life as best I can and love the people around me and put my all into my own projects and such. It's hard to sometimes remember this; especially if the negativity is difficult to avoid.

 

 

 

 

Sending love out to all the other Shizzies who deal with this same issue. You are not alone. <3 <3

I was planning to make a clever post in the Daddy Club thread after Claire went for an ultrasound this past Monday.  But, instead of going in on Monday, she went to the emergency room for a miscarriage on Sunday.  (To clarify, the emergency room was for the baby, not for her; she's physically healthy.)  So now I'm trying to arrange a funeral for our child for next week.

Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!
