Since I’m sitting and not doing as much I am noticing my mood

I’ve had such a nice time clearing out the gardening and making my patio nice with pot plants. I haven’t had a second to think of anything negative and I haven’t had any anxiety because of this business. It’s been really nice. They say that spring cleaning in the house is a good way to create a space in your mind and well for me the garden has been the same. A mixture of the sun, fresh air and clearing up has almost been therapy for me. Plus the added time spent with my daughter blowing bubbles brought my inner child out which was really lovely.

Working is easier than thinking

There were a few points in 2019 and 2020 that were so low and bleak I didn’t know if I’d make it through. I’m fine and I didn’t do anything stupid, but I thought about it almost every day. I got myself a new tattoo instead. It’s like an acceptable form of self-harm. I probably shouldn’t say that, but it totally is. Most of my tattoos came about during periods of darkness in my life.

I have never felt less like myself then I do right now

I look in the mirror and the person staring back at me is a stranger… a stranger who has no clue what the fuck they’re doing anymore. Everything I was so sure of I’m either unsure of or it’s no longer a part of my life. Things I felt, things I wanted, things I hoped for… all of that has changed. Right now all I want is to get myself and my life back on track… because this chaos is killing me and I can’t be my best self if I’m feeling this way.

It has been 24 hours since I posted and the support I have had is the reason that I love the Internet

I have had a few comments saying I am telling my story for attention or to help engagement on my social media. To grab attention from people. If anyone thinks that then you are wrong. I have been getting ready to write about this for almost 18 months. I didn’t know how much I would share [or] if I ever would. If I couldn’t write about it or felt it wasn’t right to then people still wouldn’t know what I went through.

While it’s about what I eat and don’t eat, it’s also about the things that I notice when my emotions aren’t being placated by sweet-salty-fat-savory chemicals

I feel worthless and I don’t know where it is coming from. In my world men don’t share their feelings, they do not care about mine. If I try to tell them how i feel they are incapable of hearing it or doing anything about it. The ‘closer’ I get to him the more impossible it seems. ‘This too shall pass. It isn’t real. He doesn’t know how to deal with own messiness, rarely mentions it, tends to ignore it or push it aside if anything. What is he going to do with my messiness?’
