Best of luck Drewbles! I know the feeling of not being able to make the right works under stress *Offers safe Hugs*

Drew, have you ever though of getting your mental health down on paper? Your concerns, your history with mental health, that sort of stuff. I did this after going through several doctors and getting sick of telling the same story, as well as several frustrating attempts to open up to them but being unable to express verbally major problems due to paranoia.
I generally express myself better in writing. Some of the things I *can't* talk about I can put in writing, and others make more sense on paper because I tend to lose track of conversations and get muddled. My written vocabulary is better and concepts are slightly easier to convey and much easier to keep track of.
And there's always the possibility that if you have prepared what you want to say and what you want to ask on paper, the anxiety you have about the appointment might lessen because you'll have a reference so you don't forget to say things due to the anxiety of seeing the doctor. If that make sense.
Good luck with the appointment anyway.

I'll just sit quietly over here. Still struggling with lack of motivation and now concentration for this stupid and now overdue assignment.

Drew, writing things down always helps me. I still ramble when I write but not nearly as much. Good luck with the appointment.

I hope motivation and concentration find you Eir! Good luck with the assignment.

I was doing well for a few days. This afternoon though I just seem to be going down hill and I don't know why. I just want to crawl into a hole and hide.

I ended up botching the submission. And it's a long weekend so I can't contact the subject coordinator. Ah well.

Hey Guys , How are you all today?

Kathryn_Anna 26-04-2016 11:54 AM

My daughter has therapy most of the day so I'm being forced to function. I really don't want to parent today though. I don't want to do much of anything really.

How are you?

Doikers 26-04-2016 02:08 PM

Just got Home :)
*Offers Safe Huggles*

Kathryn_Anna 26-04-2016 03:34 PM

Thanks for the hugs. *offers safe hugs back*

I'm feeling really done for today. :/

Doikers 27-04-2016 11:05 AM

How are we all today? **Leaves a Jar of Hugs*

Kathryn_Anna 27-04-2016 12:49 PM

Struggling. I have a few friends going through rough times and watched a show that was unexpectedly triggering last night. My back is spasming out again. Just not a great start to the day.

How are you Mark?

Doikers 27-04-2016 04:20 PM

I hate being unexpectedly Triggered :(

I honestly don't know how I am . . . .

Kathryn_Anna 27-04-2016 04:49 PM

*offers safe hugs*

I'm done. I give up. No more life, please.

Kathryn_Anna 27-04-2016 08:39 PM

Really struggling right now. Feeling a bit like what's the point in trying any more?

*places some goodies on the table*

*crawls back in to my hole*

Doikers 28-04-2016 11:30 AM

*Climbs into the hole with Kathryn ( Whoa , I had to word that carefully ) and Sits with*

Kathryn_Anna 28-04-2016 11:55 AM

Hey Mark. How are you today?

Doikers 28-04-2016 01:54 PM

Much the same . . . .IDK if that's good or bad or neither. How are you Kathryn?

Kathryn_Anna 28-04-2016 02:03 PM

Well you aren't worse so that's good, right?

I'm feeling a bit antisocial at the moment. And overwhelmed. And just overall struggling. Really don't want to be here right now. Meh.

Kathryn_Anna 28-04-2016 07:56 PM

I feel asleep. Ugh. Now I feel worse than before. Could be I haven't eaten much all day. I ache and can barely function.
