If someone were to see my room they would think I’m a hoarder. But while I am a craft supply hoarder, that is well maintained in giant bins. In the garage. The actual problem is more closely related to my #executivedysfunction. Additionally, providing hospice care for my greatly missed senior Great Dane turned my living space into chaos. #Depression and #anxiety are the final contributors to the situation I am in. And now we are moving. So the pressure is really on. Eep!

Mental Health checkin for today (I wanted to get back to doing these again with y’all so we walk this walk together). I wanted to get back to putting REAL STUFF on line, (tired of comparing our lives to everybody’s FILTERED highlights of one second of one day). So what better way t checkups…

Today I woke up on that lousy gray. No clue why, just felt the sky was falling and felt my chest get reallllly heavy and tight as a result.

It just sucks.

Was hard to get out of bed but i MADE the decision to do so. I also am not going to let this gray dictate the day, screw that! So as exhausted as this makes me feel I’m forcing myself to the gym to go meet a friend and just did a little Breathework because my ONLY OPTION is to hunt the blue. I am determined to tell the gray to piss off and get through it to the blue.

If you’re going through it today mention it down below and let’s all lift each other up. If you have something to celebrate today list that was well so we can all walk this walk with you. We ALWAYS fight back. Love y’all #TeamUnbreakable #TeamFckTheGray #mentalhealth #anxiety #depression

That's why people deny their mortality.

Then deny that they denied their mortality.

That's what drives the whole thing about the average person consuming the earth like locusts in order to forget themselves.

Why heroes and leaders need to be invested in and believed in, that they will shoulder the responsibility and ride to our rescues.

Why the 'other' is shunned. Pushed away. Excluded.


It doesn't have to be like this.

I’ve been stuck in a “can’t” rut for a long time now — “I can’t do <X>” running through my brain about so many things. And on the surface, this statement is founded on solid facts; there’s a lot I can’t do because of time, money, and/or energy constraints. But there’s something deeper to my “ADHD can’t”. And I think that thing is largely “responsibilities”. 1/

Exploring the psychological landscape, lack of trust can lead to a surge in anxiety and insecurity. It's like walking on a tightrope without a safety net. Trust is the bedrock of any relationship, personal or professional. When it's missing, it can trigger a cascade of negative emotions, making us question our worth and abilities. Let's foster environments of trust and transparency to mitigate these effects. #psychology #trustissues #anxiety #insecurity #mentalhealth #agile

@lizzard Thank you for sharing. I totally get the need for quiet downtime. Having been solo with our also-Autistic son for nearly three years, it can sometimes be a struggle and there are burnouts and breakdowns and tantrums.

I think that in some ways these real challenges have helped us both learn to tolerate and anticipate them better. Where I might have previously tried to “spare him” my #anxiety, I let him see it and it helped him be aware and supportive.

A screenshot of the comment section at the end of mlthe marking rubric for the assessment I handed in last week. The mark shows I received 37/40 (which is an HD). The comment reads:

Aby, an excellent policy analysis overall, well done. You demonstrate an excellent understanding of the issue, context, and relevant theory, and your explanation and application of intersectional theory is great throughout your paper. Your analysis was well thought out and well argued, especially the critical appraisal of the ways the policy incorporated intersectional perspectives. See comments above for more details. The overall structure of your paper was very good, and writing, referencing all polished as well, well done.

Hi, fellow #anxiety people.

When you've done something (successfully) that you were anxious about beforehand, do you also feel that you need to be extra careful afterwards because you may have 'gone too far' (or had 'too much fun') and thereby acted provocatively towards your anxiety, which (I felt like writing 'who' here) may now retaliate?

I'm scared of going to certain public places. After I've done so, I feel that I better stay home for a while or only go to places that are less scary.

I know that the thought is absurd and incorrect, but it would be interesting to hear if others find themselves in similar thought patterns.

Fellow folks w/ chronic illness and/or anxiety, I'm curious, if you don't mind sharing, did you struggle w/ anger growing up - in the repressive sense, in that you weren't allowed to express it? Just had a great group talk about this w/ folks w/ chronic illness. They lovingly called me on my deep reticence to express anger, even my tendency to laugh while doing it, to buffer it. They really had my number, lol. Wondering if others do this, too.

Jesus' fan club paid an unexpected visit to my home today. Apparently, "I'm an atheist & you're no more likely to change that about me than I am to change your beliefs" wasn't convincing enough.

They caught me in the middle of hauling my new door around to the back of my house. So I pulled out the cancer card. "I don't mean to be rude, but as you can see, I'm in the middle of work. I have cancer & I'm feeling well enough to do this today. I can't stop & chat or I won't be able to get this done. Have a nice day."

They still didn't leave, so I turned around & went back inside for some water, which I needed anyhow. Now they're gone.

If they give me the plague because they've been going door to door, then I hope their god is real & he smites them for endangering me. Even if they weren't religious, I do not appreciate unexpected guests. That used up precious spell slots I needed for the day.

Please let the drugs kick in so I can get this done.

I just submitted one of the two assignments I have outstanding from last year.

It's a critical analysis of "Women with Disability and Domestic and Family Violence: A Guide for Policy and Practice".

My lecturer has been incredibly supportive and patient.

My grade was automatically finalised because I had gotten enough marks to pass the subject without handing in the final assignment, and he helped me apply to have the grade reopened. He understands that my goal is for HDs so I can so honours (hopefully first class honours) and that I'd really like to graduate with the university medal.

Most of the time I get people telling me that I should just settle and just concentrate on passing, especially because of being a disabled student.. it's nice to have a lecturer who gets it.

I have another to submit in 3 weeks - it's an assessment of the media coverage of Kumanjayi Walker's murder.

If you feel guilty for saying no to an unreasonable demand (or wanting to) I'm wondering:

What I mean is, who has been able to determine what you do and when and how much time you have left over? Is that still the case? Do you want it to be? What would you like to be different, now or in the future?

This may be obvious to some folks, but finding some #cozy or #silly #anime to watch does help with coping with #anxiety or #depression. Like for instance Restaurant from Another World is a #cooking anime that has fantasy characters and focuses on their issues and how food helps resolve it. If you’ve written off anime as a genre I would say give it a chance. There are so many different genres. Like try Spy x Family. It’s a masterpiece of the dynamics of a found family with exciting stories but so wholesome.

That said, a bit of promising research is starting to surface.

I'm taking the unusual step of emailing EVERYONE because at this point
many of you with anxiety and depression symptoms may have some Long
COVID (brain fog, sleep issues, the depression or anxiety itself!).

A good write-up about what Long COVID is can be found here.  Yes, you
can had a trivial case of COVID-19 and still get Long COVID symptoms for
days, weeks, months, or years.  Some cases of it are somewhat "mild":

*The bottom-line of the video is right at the end.  For long COVID:
-- Get outside one hour per day.
-- May cover up if sensitive to sun (near UV rays will get through
clothing anyway)
-- Best if in nature (surrounded by green)
-- Do not look directly at sun (duh)
-- May wear a hat (near UV rays will get through clothing anyway)
-- Sitting in a sunny window no longer good enough (most glass now has
to be certified to block the rays we want)

He also promises to talk about how intermittent fasting may help in a
future video.

I read about the virtual tour here:

But it took me a while to find it on Lumo’s website (which detracts from the accessibility slightly!)

For some reason it’s under the ‘Who We Are’ menu at the top of the site, rather than under the prominently displayed ‘Assisted travel’ section (where I expected to see it):

The ‘Assisted travel’ section – with its mysterious icon 🤷🏻‍♀️ – contains a couple of PDF leaflets

• The one under ‘Making rail accessible’ is really geared to the commonly considered (but still under-served) groups: people who use wheelchairs and other mobility aids, people who use assistance dogs, and people who need to travel with a companion

• The other one, developed by the same company that created the 3D tour, is an ‘Autism Guide’, and is not much more than a list of the East Coast Main Line’s tunnels and their lengths! 🫠

I always check Street View* before going anywhere I haven’t been – and if there are interior photographs, so much the better

So it’s really nice to read about a train operator, Newcastle-based Lumo, offering online 3D tours of their trains: 💜

The first day in months that I've taken my ritalin so I can work on uni stuff, and I feel SO anxious.

I don't think it's the ritalin making me feel anxious, I think it's anxiety about "what if the ritalin doesn't work and I can't finish my degree?!" which is definitely grounded in "you don't deserve good things" thinking...
