Yay! I lost a pound 😊 So skipping/having a small dinner is what helps me the most it seems. Last night I just had a handful of raw veggies (carrots, celery, and bell pepper) with a little bit of dip (ranch, honey mustard, and sun dried tomato vinaigrette).

E dropped me off at home a little less than an hour ago and I’m SO ready to start my day of reorganizing/cleaning my room 😤 I also might go out and buy a fairly cheap tv to mount on my wall above my desk so I can hook up E’s PS4 to it this week. I’m actually really excited to be home today so I can set everything up the way I want to. I wanna put my crystals back out and my tarot decks and incense stand. I’ve been getting back into tarot reading and I bought a really pretty new deck the other day! It’s a little concerning that I have no problem dropping $70+ on a deck of cards, though 💀

Today I’m going to try and fast through breakfast and have my yogurt for lunch like I used to do last Spring. I wish I could eat like that everyday now but it was easier for me back then cuz I had the luxury of being home all day and not working 👁👄👁

I’m so stressed.
The work I have to do is piling up so much. I do so much work everyday but somehow the amount is still piling up.
I’m so stressed.
When I tell someone I’m stressed, I’m not asking them to fix it and I’m not asking for a lecture about how they have more stuff to do. I just want them to say I’ll be okay. Just a little bit of empathy.
Is it really too much to ask?
I know that I’m not the only person who’s feeling like this and I don’t think I’m feeling worse than anyone else. But instead of comparing can we just be sympathetic.
Just tell each other we’ll be okay.

I hit a very low point today. My depression hit a peak. I’m still working through it but I just wanted to appreciate the fuck out of my cat. Before I started crying at all, he was in my lap. Normally he jumps up onto me whenever I’m up too late because he’s used to me being in bed at a certain time for work. But tonight was different because I was spiralling over a personal problem. I don’t know how animals work like this, but he recognized that I wasn’t ok and he was in my lap immediately. He also positioned himself in a way where I had to concentrate where my arm was in order to prevent him from falling off my lap. Which really helped me to not just.. cry but not completely break down. He stayed with me until I stopped crying.
I don’t know how animals do this but either way, they’re too fucking good for us.
Foods that can reduce stress

I wish I could take a break from life
I haven’t really lived since October of last year.

This is so true for me. Now I know why I get so much comfort from rewatching my favorite movies and shows.
