same shit different day

so my new anti depressant medicine is at a low dose and i am trying to hold on.... i see the psychiatrist next tuesday and the therapist also.

we are thinking that maybe i could drive myself to the appointments that are just the therapist and not the psychologist. because idk lol it just made sense at the time

I have been playing stardew valley alllll the time. also legend of zelda Breath of the Wild

..... i have to say that i am so thankfull and grateful for my husband. he has done everything he can to help me and i am so thankful and blessed to have him in my life.

also.... unfortunately.  my brother's wife's step dad (who has been a big part of her life) has died... on sunday.
and i have been selfish and horrible and i havent went to see them.
i just thought that my depression would be... adding to it?
but i am going to visit them tomorrow.
i should have done it sooner and i feel horrible about it.

there are plans for us to go to the mobile, al area in april (we'd leave on my birthday) so that is fun.
and there's a concert my husband w ants to go to.
so there's stuff going on and... i'm trying really really hard to pull myself out of this depression hole so i can enjoy the real world and do stuff.

yeah

i wish i had better news.

the new medicine might work... the dose is really low right now. so there is hope. just increasing it. and then waiting the 2-3 weeks . I am trying to think positive.

troubled waters

we are changing my medicines and requesting a re-evaluation of my mental illnesses
because after some personal assessment my symptoms  could be one thing or another or both things. one of these things require a special kind of therapy and possible hospital stays for stability reasons to we want to make sure everything is actually what the people at the shit free clinic said it is. because who the hell knows.


i am trying to pull through this depression is it has been a long one and i have been laying in bed in misery for a long time
I have therapy on monday


stan is a saint is trying so hard to keep me sane and ok and safe and happy and i love him and i can't find a way to tell him because my mood swings are so bad that by the time i realize these things something else has set me off.

this is part of the stuff that we aren't sure about... and might be a sign my diagnosis is wrong.

all in all.... i dont know.... stay tuned-- i know only one person checks this blog but i still try to update it when i can.

all i have going on is therapy and videogames and trying to keep my shit together until medicine works or something else happens.

Ok.... So. My husband is amazing

My wonderful husband has done so much for me lately. He got my car fixed. He bought replacement controllers for the Nintendo switch because the only thing that seems to make me happy is gaming. And it doesn't even make me happy. It just passes time. Until I go to sleep again.

He is trying so hard to make me happy and I am so depressed and I feel... Guilty. Because I want to do and be better but I just..... cant. I dont know how to explain it.. my mind is dark and twisty (to quote Grey's anatomy) ...and we know I have to try new medication...  I am so hesitant to try anything after the last time we tried those two meds that were so horrible... But I am going to have to try something new... Something else... Because this is not.... Idk. Anyway we will attempt a new medication soon (appt Feb 19 next Tues for that and also therapy) but I am just barely hanging on here.

I know I've said that before but it's bad bad bad. And I'd probably benefit from a stay at the psych hospital at this point but I don't wanna go that's the absolutely last thing I will ever do.

I wish I could see my therapist every week  but it's so far. I could drive it now that my car is fixed. I mean it would be a feat but I could probably do it. And Stan wouldn't have to take off work? Maybe he could just go when I see the psychiatrist. And I can go alone when I see the therapist.

Oh my I keep thinking up these things and I know I can't ever do them. I don't think. It's... I don't think I could do the drive. But maybe....

hello darlin, nice to see ya. it's been a long tiiiiiiiime

My only news to report is that the major clinical depression struggle is very real and very kicking my ass lately.


I am making due with video games, netflix, and the occasional coloring book. but these things are getting useless as my depression episode grows longer.

we are going to call my doctor and schedule a emergency type check in to get me on a new medicine of some kind for depression---- hopefully one that wont make me gain 8202084 pounds. because I already feel disgusting right now. I'm not sure how much more I can stand.

Sat Jan 26, 2019

Thing have been so blah lately. the only thing I've been doing is watching The Tudors on netflix and playing the game Stardew Valley on the nintendo switch-- which is, definitely, way better than what most gamers play. no violence. lots of growing of plants. lol

My heart necklace that stan got me-- the chain broke so we went today to get  new one. it was really exciting. I think we got a chain that will keep the pendant from flipping over so much

We are hoping to plan a trip to the Nasa Space and Science Center in february instead of going to Kami-Con because all the construction around that area is going to make it absolute hell to get in and around the BJCC in birmingham. plus I have wants to go to the NASA thing again since I've been an adult.
We are hoping we can get Alex and Sagen to go with us. make it a couples things. We gotta get on them about scheduling that because they are so hard to get a free weekend with.


random: we need to get a bulb for the quartz lamp
we got an invite from my cousin Kelleye for her wedding in October and they used a wax stamp like i got stan fo xmas and that is so cool!!!!
I got a new wallet from Wish and its so pretty and I love it
I got a grey-ish hat
MY period is late and i'm not pregnant ... no chance of it. so i am kind of just in pain and on egg shells waiting because i never know when it might happen now that its late. like a week late? i dont know


we have some things we might ... have coming up soon that might change our plans for the future so i am tying to not make any long term plans right now lol

I met my new therapist and she is going to be a really good match for me i think.

I am struggling with irritability and depression right now.

I dont have much else to say

so I'm updating again

not much has happened... Alabama football took a huge hit.
I went to work with Stan for a day and slept all day on the office floor (thankfully nobody was there hardly) I honestly just needed to get out of the house hahah.
I am grateful for him letting me go to work with him, even if me being there was awkward and weird.

I love my new phone and my computer. I want for nothing. I cant express how grateful I am to have a husband who takes such good care of me. I am so very blessed.

Next week I have an appointment with a new different therapist. Its a woman so maybe I can talk about some of the sexual trauma I've went through and she should understand body image and eating disorder problems a lot more than a man would. they are moving to a new location. they have rented the 5th floor of the galleria in Birmingham. like.... wow. who does that? so i think my session is there? or is at the normal place? i dont know... the not knowing is going to make me nervous so thats no fun. on top of the meeting a new therapist. and having to explain my mental health history over again. I have a notebook actually, where ive wrote everything down. so i need to find that green notebook before next thursday.

My parents are taking a little vacation to the casino in Mississippi so Stan and I have the house to ourselves. Which is nice. But taking care of the dogs... there is one dog that wakes up at 4am and barks until you let her outside. and its just.... wow. I admire my parents for having the patience to do the routines with these dogs that they have established. (the dog that give them the most trouble is Scarlett and she is a special needs dog, so again, i admire my parents for taking this on)

this weekend we are going to finaaaaaaally get together with Alex and Sagen (alex is a friend from stan's work)
and we plan to see a movie, go to Hokkaido for dinner and then exchange very very late christmas presents. and make Sagen watch the movie Forrest Gump because for some reason she hasnt seen it yet. and I cant imagine... not having seen it. Its like.. a staple for the southerners. lol



so thats is for now i think. i will update again if.. anything pops up

same shit different day

so my new anti depressant medicine is at a low dose and i am trying to hold on.... i see the psychiatrist next tuesday and the therapist als...
