    Man, working at a grocery store right now when you already have mental health issues...
    Though as I said in another thread, it seems like the stay at home order seriously calmed things down

    i'm gonna end up needing to go to the store soon. i haven't been anywhere since last week other than driving my wife to a couple doctors appointments (and staying in the car). i went to my parents' house last wednesday but otherwise i've just been at home. i thrive on social interaction so this is going to start wearing on me soon, for sure.

    but yeah, i can only imagine how scary it is to be working at a grocery store right now. stay safe <3

    Finding it difficult to care about the new NIN. I can't even be bothered to download it.

    Depression is crushing these days.

    Worse than ever.

    My husband had a melt down earlier today, because since we're working from home, he just can't keep up with all the additional emails and expectations from everyone (and it doesn't help that he's not a tech savvy person to begin with either, so he's constantly asking me for help.) We got into a mini-fight because he just doesn't want to do it anymore.

    Last week when the new Ghosts was released my brain did something uncool.

    The last time Ghosts was released, 26 days later I spent 5 weeks in the hospital while the docs tried to figure out what just caused my disability to appear... and then the news Ghosts appears around the same time of year and we're in social quarantine from most of the rest of the world with COVID-19... yeah, my rationale brain took an anxiety rollercoaster ride but didn't pay admission and was chased around by security and thrown out of the park. I'm still kinda wiggy about it... part of the reason why I've delayed listening to the new stuff.

    Other than that, things are okay.

    i would keep holding off for a bit. both volumes (while quite different sonically) were deeply affecting to me.

    It's sunny, I'm depressed.
    It's rainy, I'm depressed.
    Morning, night, whatever time of the day. I'm depressed.
    Whether I catch the virus or not, I'll still be depressed. It won't make any difference.

    So many equate sadness to depression. I don't understand this. That isn't what it's like for me at all. Either it's not the same for them, or they've never had it.

    It's an unending ocean of emptiness that never goes away. A hole in things that can't be filled. Nothing works.

    :: hugs :: depression is a mutating beast. you find one thing that seems to keep it slightly at bay and it finds another way under your skin. it's especially insidious right now with everything going on. my depression seemed to have gotten less severe for a while but this is completely wrecking me.

    I got sexually assaulted for the 3rd time in my life last year and got blamed for it by people I considered good friends. Lost my last job due to a company closing locations and then as unemployment seemed like it was about to end and I’d found a “real career” coronavirus kept me from getting a new job. I’m really fighting with myself every day to feel stable and not totally lose it and I leap between manic and down at random nowadays. Having a serious fucking time at it. I want to scream all the time at no one and everyone.

    After having a bad relapse with alcohol, I started seeing a therapist to help deal with all the stress that has arouse in my life in the past five months. Not only do I feel so much happier after a handful of sessions, but I'm now 50 days sober (from alcohol). I do still smoke marijuana, but I will be scaling back once I get back to Illinois on June 1st as with my new position in management at work, I really need to be alert and ready to take over at a moment's notice in the event someone calls in sick. The rest of this year, I'm really gonna take it upon myself to get into a much more healthy relationship with myself and my body/health. The last few years I feel I've been careless and really have not taken the initiative in taking care of myself. Now, with the current pandemic, more than ever do I need to make sure my body is running at tip top shape.

    Today is going to eat me alive. (Anxiety, mostly) All in my head and trying to remove the teeth from the beast. Some of this stuff is so old and logically irrelevant but telling feelings and instincts they don't stand up to reason is a pointless exercise. God help me.

    :: hug :: hope you can push through it. make sure to do things that help you stay calm.

    also, "All in my head and trying to remove the teeth from the beast" is an amazing sentence. would you be ok if i incorporated it into some lyrics?

    @eversonpoe Thank you for the hug. I've been trying to get it out into a journal. Some are straight forward, some just horrible messes. Not at lot else I can do atm.
    Please feel free to use the sentence if you find something in it. I would be honoured.
