Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

So, being med free has been interesting. My mood did dip for a while and I was going to return to the pills. Stayed off for another week and I started to stabilize. Stabilized lower than par but stable all the same. Some things seem easier because I am more grounded, easier to do the little things, ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary entry I went cold turkey on my head-meds a little over two weeks ago. Don't have anything against meds. Was feeling trapped / stuck and figured shaking up my brain chemistry may help. I feel more stable but suspect my mood is creeping down. I want to continue to monitor this and get back on th...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

I will get hammered or eat pizza to feel free for a night, Well, that was an interesting choice of words. I'm toying with the idea that I feel trapped by everything, by life itself. That I am not so much looking for an escape as for release. I suspect some re-framing of some of my basic premises in...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

My last diary entry was about what I want and self sabotage. This entry is about the inner emptiness that sucks the joy from me into a vacuum that can never be filled. I have changed my life massively over the past 8 years. I have a good job, a home, I have made friends, I make new friends, I get in...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary entry What do I want? I want a relationship. I want more friends. I want more experiences I want to be as healthy as I can be for as long as I can be. I know what I need to do to improve my life, I know how to do it and I am capable of it but that fear of a different type of life, a different ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary entry A few weeks ago I realised the bulk of my difficulties in going to sleep are not anticipation anxiety but fear of the vulnerability of being asleep and defenseless. Been exploring that fear and it has been tough. Fear and anxiety are now much more present 24/7. It is necessary to continu...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary entry Took a day off work a couple of weeks ago. I have never slept well and recently been relying on caffeine to get through each day. Caffeine is a good, quick impact, mitigatior but it makes the overall situation worse by making sleep harder and leaving me really tense after a few days use....

Re: Severe depression and suicidal feelings

Hi Susanna So sorry to read your story. I wonder if the article here https://psychcentral.com/lib/narcissistic-mothers/ rings any bells? The thought that helps me at the worst times is that I know from experience that they will pass. I know I will find fun and joy again one day. I know that my exper...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Was waiting in for a delivery all day yesterday, sleep problems left me too tired to do much of anything aside from Netflix, overslept today. Too long inside on my own, feeling it sap my mood. I have done a little cleaning and tidying, doesn't sound like much unless you know chronic depression but a...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Note to self: Answering messages from my mother triggered a steep drop in mood. Better now. She is not my responsibility. Put myself first.
