Good luck @mrs I hope your interviews go very well this week. I will keep you in my thoughts!
Thanks @krissie117 it means. Alot!
Uh dissociation. I do that a lot. That’s my go-to for ptsd. For me, that’s a hard one to break.
That’s why I do it anxiety and PTSD. I had to leave my living room because it got chaotic (to me) and I was afraid that I would do it. I didn’t want to with my son’s girlfriend here and my daughter and my son’s girlfriend’s friend was over too. So I just went to my room.
@mrs you are very welcome! I know what that’s like waiting for interviews. I did it last year and it can be nerve racking!
This week, I am pulling myself out of last weekend’s funk & negativity. I’m applying for some part time jobs, as my art sales have dwindled with the end of summer. After I finish that, I’m going to cleanse my house and look into making some florida water. I bought vodka for my rose water toner last week so I may as well put it to use! I’m forcing myself to be more positive and work on some art! I WILL have a better week than I did last week!
@krissie117 How was the counseling appointment? Is that with a new therapist?
@Francisco she is fairly new to me. It went okay, I’m more accepting that I dissociate it’s just learning to manage it with my family. I don’t know when I’m doing it so we have ways to bring me back but then I have no memory anything happened or was said. So she said to keep up with the meditation and journaling and she was calling my psychiatrist for the best way to help me.
For many years I’ve been hunting for good, natural moisturizers for skin prone to eczema- especially for the hands! I’ve found all-natural, organic, and products with herbal infusion (especially calendula) to work wonderfully! And it sounds like your products are right in line with what I need- do you know when you’ll be opening up shop? I’m very interested!!!
Sending big hugs and warm thoughts, @haley! I hope last week’s funk fades away and your art sales pick up again very soon! Have fun making the Florida Water and bask in those positive thoughts- maybe indulge in a little self love and say a few positive affirmations about your many talents and wonderful traits to keep you going!
I’m glad the appointment with your new counselor went well, @krissie117! I hope she has some good advice and guidance . It’s never fun to go to the doctor’s office- I had to go again today to do the routine bloodwork- yikes! But I think going to the appointments is also a form of self love- it’s taking care of yourself and doing what is needed in order to be healthy Good for you, Krissie! Stay strong
@TheTravelWitch, here we have Zoom appointments for these things. I have a zoom appointment with my primary care about my pain flare this morning and then a phone appointment with my psychiatrist at noon about how I have been doing with the medication change. Busy day today! Tomorrow I see the orthopedic surgeon about piriformis syndrome and my right hip. I’ve always got something going on, this week is a busy one that’s for sure. I have some fasting bloodwork that I need to get done, so I have to remember nothing after this coffee.
That’s wonderful you can do your appointments safe and comfortable at home, @krissie117- I wish I had the option for that here! They have temperature monitoring and very strict rules to be safe at the local clinic, but it still makes me nervous whenever I have to go there .
I hope your appointments yesterday went well, and I’m sending good thoughts for talk with the orthopedic surgeon today. It does sound like a busy week for you- I hope you can find plenty of time for fun and relaxing activites too!
