Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

i am checking airports in moscow , there are 4 or more option , i guess i should use international ones, i'm planning to visit moscow in march or april but not sure which one i should use, should i decide based on distance between airport and places that i will go to or should i base my choice on different criteria , i havent decided a hotel even also i am not sure i have proper clothes for weather of moscow , i checked and i see that around 0 celcius degree but it is Russia
i am really bad at organisation of a travel by the way there is another variable which i dont have control over it, dates of my exams and course hours are not known yet for second semester
too much complicated for me , i like simpleness

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

The amount of upper body strength I used to lean on a shopping cart (more) or a little stool because I can’t bend over right now so that I could put products on second to bottom or bottom shelves knocked me out today lol

My current procrastination on schoolwork on a scale of 1 to 10 is about 43.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

I’m still taking Xanax almost daily trying to adjust to a new job, in a new city and trying to start a new life. Things have gone surprisingly well which makes me worry even more.

What the f is wrong with me? My brain is so conditioned to anxiety, it continues to seek it out, no matter how well things may be going in my life. I think my brain enjoys the stimulation from it on a subconscious level.

I know, I need some therapy and have planned to for years but it still hasn’t happened. My brain plays tricks on me. The importance of making an appointment seems to disappear and causes great anxiety when I have the opportunity. The importance and motivation only comes back at night when I have the time to relax, think and their office is closed.

I don’t know who I am. I feel and think so differently during the day vs. night. What’s a great idea now will probably suck in my mind tomorrow.

Some places have online portals for making an appointment. Try looking for
one of those?

Just reading your post triggered an adrenaline response of anxiety in the pit of my stomach. I know you’re right and making an appointment online in the evening is my best approach and the most logical solution. The fear of anger, guilt, sadness or melancholy is my roadblock.

This is the roadblock and why I’m not attempting to make an appointment right now.

Thanks for your response. Just talking about it gets me a bit closer and more ready.

Adopt a good dog and you’ll never be lonely or friendless.

Making acquaintances is easy but making a real friend is sooooo hard when it comes to humans!

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

Try the alarmed app- reminds me to do things every hour. Also I gave into therapy- has made me more friendly and productive. Also I don’t get stuck in countless anxiety loops as much. I still do constantly but I ignore it more

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

I feel like guy friends just want to **** me. I’m not kidding tho- my last job at a grocery store they all either tried to **** me, the older dudes wanted to date me, and the one I liked didn’t like me but got jealous when I talked to other dudes that worked there. And now one closest friend there, who I’m mostly around most of the time, who I thought liked me in the beginning and confronted, just sprung on trying to **** me. It’s like no one takes me seriously and it’s so sad. None of the girls are friendly to me there, what gives?

Thanks for your response. Just talking about it gets me a bit closer and more ready.
I went cold-turkey on all my meds at the start of November, tummy virus,
nothing was staying down, lasted almost 2 weeks. Early this month I realized
I was not doing so great in the anxiety department, and finally had a huge
meltdown. I knew I needed to start taking my Zoloft again. It really does
help me.
