    I'm interested in knowing more and hearing you talk through it if that's any solace.
    Also, apropos of nothing, didn't you have the cat pounce as your gif a long time ago? Name is familiar.

    Think I'm done watching local news, at least on anxious days. Weather forecasters had me SURE I'd be eaten by white walkers if I went outside...
    ...but while the store was crammed, as you might expect on the day before a big snowstorm's expected, the walk there and back was entirely uneventful. The sidewalks were even clear! (wasn't sure Seattle people knew how to do that)

    Yes. I had the cat/Shaq wiggle for a while after I first joined.
    Money.

    Edited to add: obviously Bill passing away has been heavy on my heart today as well

    had a dream that my husband and I adopted another version of my son and the new one said hello back when people talked to him and was understandable and more mature... then I wanted the old one back but my husband didn't know where he was...

    so I feel a little emotionally f****d from that this morning :(

    ...that my inbox is always open. I love that this thread even exists. It's a nice reminder that we are all just human, nothing more, nothing less.

    Nearly had a panic attack yesterday after kid #2 got upset with me and took it out on herself (as she always does). Self harm at the tender age of 22mo. Not 100% uncommon but it isn't simply falling out but rather "oh boy, you now have an open wound" kind of thing. I'm paranoid on a daily basis about her getting an infection. Going to look into early intervention for an eval. She's so intense and legit the most overwhelming kid I've ever met.

    kiddo's dad lives 2 hours away, which is his main excuse for hardly ever seeing his son. Twice in the past week I've seen him in my apartment's parking lot, but he would just nod at me and get in his truck and leave, without coming over to talk to his son. He just came over, apparently he's homeless and is couch surfing with some old friends in the apartment across the parking lot from me. I...don't like this at fucking all. I don't like him being this close.He didn't even text or call before telling me he was coming, he just showed up. I hate when people I LIKE do that, I certainly don't want him doing that. It makes me extremely fucking anxious knowing he's so close and could show up at any time, or like...has the possibility to keep tabs on me. I'm sure I'm being paranoid, but fuck. He's been 2-4 hours away for over 2 years. I liked the distance.

    My oldest kids father called me this morning from the hospital. He is in ICU detoxing from alcohol and then he'll be off to mental health facility. Again. So now I have to go take care of packing up his apartment before the end of the month. I really hope he stays sober this time because I'm tired of dealing with it, and having my son go through it. Which I hate saying. Plus my boyfriend is still in Florida so I'm dealing with everything by myself for a few more days.

    I'm so sorry :hug: don't take on more than you can handle, though. It doesn't make you a bad person if you don't do his apartment. It sounds like he's had multiple chances. This is his problem, not yours. :hug: I hope that doesn't sound harsh.

    Thank you. Honestly my plan is to just take anything valuable.... the TVs, computers, guitars, amps. Minus a few important things, he said I could sell whatever. I'm going to pack a bag of his clothes and his important papers for him too. I'm not packing and cleaning every little thing by any means.

    I really try not to be just another shitty person in this world, there's enough of em already. I'm also a huge empath with a huge heart and I think thats why things get so rough for me sometimes.

    There are some people who feel like they are complete without a partner (hello survey question), and others who seem to function best with one. Pretty sure I’m in the latter.

    Been single for a long time. Not as fun after a few years.

    nasty anxiety today. Maybe from coming off all the meds I had to take for so long. maybe from my body being out of sorts for so long. lots of chest/neck pain (my common anxiety pain) so I have to sit here and twist the skin on my neck to distract me.

    my neck/arm pain has been nonexistent to mild since i started my new meds (well, after being on them a little bit)
    i've also been taking a higher dose of vitamin d3 pills and i got new pillows in case that was affecting my neck, so it could've been that stuff instead, but i didn't think this stuff would ever get better
