There was a video on YouTube I was trying to watch about how the Fire Nation in Avatar could have allowed a nation-wide genocide on a peaceful people.
Two minutes in the writer poked in to say that last year he organized an event last year that raised $25,000 for a men’s suicide prevention...
I’m still having a hard time with anxiety. I can’t hardly read things in these forums. I’m back to 2016-me on that front, I guess. And I dissociated at some point and during that time spent $900 on charities. Mostly on children with cancer, men’s domestic abuse sanctuaries and support groups...
OCD isn’t kicking my ass. But it still sucks.
It says one minute that I need to reduce stress, or I’ll get permanent damage to my body and die of a heart attack. (That’s ridiculous, brain.)
It says I need to stick alcohol in my ears until I’m dizzy to “be sure” I’m not about to get swimmers...
If my mom does have Parkinson’s, it’s not as bad as several things, I guess.
I was sitting here worrying about it all week when suddenly my brain whispered from the back, “Hey, isn’t that a dominate trait? Won’t half her kids get it, too? Won’t you?”
I looked it up. Parkinson’s, not...
Also, update about the texts (no you don’t have to read them to get this), I ended up not discussing them with my therapist. I feel utterly guilty about the whole exchange. I feel like I shouldn’t have discussed this with a personal friend. I was triggered, though, and it turns out it was...
Goals for this week (and next):
• Work on 15,000 words
• Work on finding magazines
• Contact the county health department for prices on flu shots, if not free, and also a physical
• Contact my undergrad advisor and professors I was close to for their knowledge on...
Hey @Chris-duck, is your old diary still around?? I had bookmarked one of your posts but couldn't find it again to save it, and trying to remember what you said that was so interesting to me is killing me! You said it right at the start of the pandemic so it was your old diary... right?? 🤔
I looked at an old email account I used to use to talk to Brandi in 2016/17, so I could get some info about a character I made.
Interestingly, now I’m dealing with a urge to check to see if she still sucks on her social media accounts.
I’m resisting it.
Oh, also also, I told everyone irl to call me Nico instead of Rebecca. It feels more like me, to me.
It was scary to do but it worked out great :) I feel more authentic all of a sudden! Confusing doing certificates and etc now but I’ll figure it out some time
Lots of older people don’t have friends. You’d be shocked. You can work on that later, when you’re ready, but you’re not alone in that.
And that’s a great start regardless! People who struggle to come up with nice things sometimes need to start small. You’ll hear lots of people tell you to...
I’ve heard this diet works GREAT for diabetic people.
On YouTube, Dr. Mike (a doctor with a channel) did a whole video on what it was like to be on the Keto diet. It was incredibly interesting
I also gained a lot of weight, but not for the common reasons. After my last head injury I lost impulse control and made poorer choices. And I had a dramatic change of taste. Previously I hated chocolate. Then suddenly I was eating chocolate pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It scared the...
In other news my snake got really sick, and I think he’s gonna be okay, but he’s kinda flip flopping a little on that. He’s a beloved boy so it affects me strongly. Hopefully he’s good — doesn’t hurt to be optimistic!
