Depressed

Recommended Posts

JustineM

Lately I’ve been in a depression spiral and can’t seem to break it. Work has changed my route so I’m working 12-14 hr days. I am so tired that when I get home I have no energy to do anything to make myself feel pretty. Body hair has been a major trigger for me and I haven’t even had time or energy to shave my face in a couple days.  I just don’t know what to do. Right now I’m in a cycle of eat, sleep, work. Barely even see my kids.

 

Sorry for the long depression post, just venting.

One of our reasons for being here is so you can make those posts if you need to.  I know what depression is from the inside, and I am not the only one here.

Why are you in a such a work cycle?  It sounds like something you should get out of!  I once working like that, 12+ hour days, 7 days a week, for several months. I had to get out of there.  I would have been dead if i had stayed for much longer.

Our corporate in the “infinite wisdom” decided to eliminate one of our routes and condense our areas to make it “easier.” Well it has turned into a complete 

disaster. I’ve had some other offers including a bank that wanted me to name my price. The only reason I haven’t done anything yet is that I have a vacation coming up in a month and I don’t want to ruin it. Physically I don’t think I can do this kind of work much more, I’ve been hauled out in an ambulance x3 in the last 2 yrs.  

I guess I shouldn’t say I didn’t know how to break it, I need to get out of security. I just need to keep it up for another few weeks so I can start looking.

UPDATE: probably coincidence 😁 but about an hour after making the original thread post, my supervisor called and met up. Took enough stops to cut about 4 hrs off my time.  I was able to get home see my kids and take a bath. Got to make with the silky smooth

      Whatever Shampoo people use, Try not to over shampoo. Shampoo can and will strip the nutrients and oils from your hair if it is overused. Use Conditioner if you do not have dirty hair, and leave in some conditioner to help the hair stay moisturized and healthy. If you feel your hair needs a wash, then just use conditioner.

      Wake me if there is a good half time show at the "super" bowl.  I was a soccer player and never was all that interested in football.   How about the US women's soccer team.....awesome!

      I agree, cause ive seen two teams I enjoy watching tank. The Washington Redskins, and the Carolina Panthers. I also used to watch my former home team, Chargers, tank every year.

      She is one person who stands up to the current president and it appears he is aware of it, hence how he talks about her.  She would be a tough candidate I believe.

      I recently had a bone scan as well and all is well.  My doctor put me on Vitamin D a year ago.  I'm trying to be pro-active with my heath so I'm not going down without a fight!

      That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.   Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁   Kymmie

      When i first moved to Bonnie Scotland. I took me ages to get use to being called "Pal" Where i came from it was a very male oreintated acknowledgement. But here all genders it can be associated with the term.  I was right upset for a while being called "pal" as i was thinking i was being outed everywhere. A very strange phemominan for me as it just doesnt happen. Well not for at least six years and then i was just finding my feet so to speak until i quizzed my partner about it who is native. I didnt feel so bad then.   Also "Hen" is used  between woman but men use it a lot when addressing a Female but not knowing there name. Isnt it funny how little regional things can be so diffrent?   A bit like how you would call someone darling down south if your a man talking to a woman in passing by  "Thanks darling" They say "Thanks Pal" or "Thanks Hen"   They do not really use sweetie. At least i have never heard it. Maybe im  just not sweet enough? 😉         Wow that is old school.  I have not seen one of those in years. I use to have the attachment if you had points but even they went out of use a few years ago.   Just a plastic one now for me im afraid.

      My opnion is. They should man up and play Rugby Union.  It's like this you speak of but without all the cotton and bubble rap.   Proper mans game 😉

      She's the senior senator from my state, and I've heard her speak. She's a breath of fresh, sincere, air.  Her primary passions are economic justice (she spearheaded getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established, which has been greatly curtailed under the Trump administration, sadly).  However, she was also a firm supporter of our statewide ballot initiative for transgender rights last year, which was successful.   I have no doubts about her support for trans rights on the federal level.  The question will be, how receptive will the U.S, Senate be to any Democratic president on any issue if it retains a Republican majority.   Fingers crossed,   Astrid
