What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

I am tired...really, really tired. Have not slept well the last few nights. I am also twitchy and feel generally yucky. Which sucks because I am in a fairly good mood and I hate to have it messed up. On a positive note...my vacation was approved so I have 10 days off and a trip to the beach with B and his family to look forward to.

I've been having a lot of nightmares, lately, so I'm really tired.
My ass-rat neighbors have been shooting their guns persistently for the last week, so I'm very stressed and on edge.
I'm frustrated by the fact that I can't have caffeine or anything acidic (because of Interstitial Cystitis).
I'm afraid that anything I eat is going to cause me horrendous pelvic pain.
I feel angry, anxious, stressed, can't sleep. Also, feeling rejected and alone. I know that this too will pass but I'm exhausted right now...
I am new here. It is 2 in the morning and I can't sleep. I am feeling


is there a pill? anything that can help me, I live in a vacumn. my house is falling apart and i am afraid to leave it..
I am feeling verrrrrrrrrrry sleeeeeeeeeeeepy.

I feel grateful that I have the tools that I do.
I feel happy that it's monsoon season and such nice weather.
I feel happy that I have friends.
I feel hopeful that I will work through this emotional crap.
I feel proud that I have continued to put one foot in front of the other.

I feel angry that I didn't steer my life better.
I feel sad that I made so many poor choices.
I feel sad that I devalued myself so much.
I feel afraid that I'll never find and fulfill my purpose.
I feel afraid that I will be judged for wasting/losing so much time.
I feel guilty that I didn't hang on to myself, that I threw myself away.

What do I need?
I need to continue the work I'm doing. Feel the feelings. Accept.

What do I need right now?
Cleansing breaths. Open the window for fresh air. Get back to work.
I'm feeling depressed and useless. I'm feeling nauseous as well which is adding sneering disgust to the internal screaming voice.

I'm feeling distressed by yet another new flashback that's started to come up.

I'm feeling frustrated that willpower isn't enough to fix my mind.
