Feeling hopeful today. While I am not ready to return to my dream job at Microsoft right now, I am starting to plan what my return will look like.

This is my third leave for my #Depression and #Anxiety and, in the past, I have done two weeks at 50% and then gone back to full time. I am 0 for 2 with that plan, since here I am on another leave.

This time, my return will be more gradual and include more meaningful self-advocacy. Feels good.

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.

"Living in a culture that...actually shuts down people who are trying to build better things is a really isolating and destructive experience.

"...#ClimateChange is throwing...pain, #trauma, #stress, angst & cultural toxicity at us. It can breed distrust, apathy...nihilism & ...deep fear. Even for people who are experiencing the #ClimateCrisis at a distance, through the lens of the #media, there’s a medically recognised causal pathway to #depression, #anxiety & #PTSD.”

Americans are searching the phrase "I am tired" more than ever. Why?

"Lack of sleep" is a good guess—owing to #sleepapnea, #insomnia or overwork. But that's only part of the problem.

Rising levels of #stress and #anxiety and our 24/7 culture aren't just impinging on sleep time. These and a range of other factors are ruining #sleep QUALITY.

If you're often #tired or feel #exhaustion, #fatigue or #burnout, I've got a range of helpful solutions you can lean into.

I wonder if any therapists ever consider treating severe social anxiety disorder as some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder.

So much of the reaction to my anxiety has been to tell me it's irrational, it's unfounded, the things I worry about won't happen, people won't think of me like that; yet then when the situation occurs, more often than not, that's EXACTLY what ends up happening, my fears are proven correct & well founded. My last therapist witnessed this numerous times, including with 2 other clients of hers SHE suggested I meet with. THEY BOTH STOOD ME UP. She witnessed this! My fears were well founded! Yet when I complained, she said she didn't want to hear it anymore, they had excuses, I didn't.

I got this way through repeated bad experiences--trauma--with criticism, ignoring, & rejection. I did not imagine it. It was not just in my head.

So why does therapy treat it like it is?

I might be #childless but it's largely a choice. While I generally lack interest in having children (doesn't help that I'm very awkward around children), I also don't think I can really handle having a child due to having #anxiety / #depression and, you know, having hormonal imbalances (since i def have hirsutism).

So, like, it's probably not the best idea.

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.

Today would have normally been my first lecture of the year but instead I went up a hill. #Depression, #anxiety, low #SelfEsteem & #ImposterSyndrome are things I have struggled with for many years & it was time to admit I needed time off. As guilty & awkward as I felt this morning, by the time I got to the top, windswept & soaking, I was in no doubt that #academia is just a job & doing what is best for your #MentalHealth is always right. Remember, you are always more important than your job.

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:

Who has owned your time?

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.

Today I found out that my essay “The Anxious Writer” has been purchased by Open Minds Quarterly, my story “This is the Time Just before Spider Woman Meets Kiviuq” has been purchased by the Delta Literary Arts Society, and my story “Wolf Mother” has begun its editorial process at Augur Magazine.

Okay all -- It's early days for figuring out how to help people with

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.

pass exams.  Since the start of COVID, Dr. Seheult has done occasional
more accessible videos for the general public on COVID-related topics.

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

Not sure what happened to the end coach though! 😳

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...

How does your #anxiety manifest? Mine feels like my skin is too tight and I just want to crawl out of it 😔

I haven’t had to take anxiety meds in months but have twice this week. Feels like I’m backsliding quickly.

In a call with a PM I mentor, I realised a big reason I'm so much less anxious now than a few years ago: being realistic with myself about priorities.

Set aside those low-priority things on the to-do list that haunt you as they spill over from week to week. There's no need to feel guilty for dropping things from your way-too-full plate because you've been focusing on what's important.
