Dealing with a autoimmune disease everyday is tuff but trying to fight through it

That sure sounds very tough.

Dealt with the very abrupt flashback of being sexuality assaulted as a child about 2 months ago, started talking weekly with my psych.

Fell apart and struggling to get back into it, the mountains infront of me I know I can climb, but I just dunno if I have the energy. Procrastination is a bitch of a thing

Making real good progress in everything - apart from my screen addiction.

Super stressful weekend. Wife with high expectations' birthday, big party, expensive gift request, full moon (ahem). Trying to shift into Kind Servant mode, which works really well for both of us when I can maintain it.

Aiming for good sleep, meditation & exercise to keep me balanced.

Started working out a while ago that's going good. I still need to fix my sleep. I hate waking up late.

My April was incredibly busy, but now that it’s over I’m just kinda drifting. There’s stuff I should be doing and things I want to do, but I just have zero motivation to get started on anything. My to do lists keep getting longer while I spend hours every day on Instagram and Reddit. Now that I finally have an ADHD diagnosis this all makes more sense, but the executive dysfunction is no less frustrating.

[–]burntoutpyromancer 4 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

I totally get the ADHD thing (got diagnosed last autumn, and it explains so much). Actually, I'm supposed to make an appointment to discuss medication, but instead, I'm doom-scrolling all day and feeling bored and frustrated at the same time. At least I'm starting to get my housework sorted out - still at a slower pace than I'd like, but seeing those tidy spice shelves feels so satisfying.

Getting things nicely organized is a great feeling for sure

[–]proffgilligan 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Long shot, but I'll mention it anyway: microdosing mushrooms helps me with mood, focus and motivation. PM if you'd like to know more. (I'm not a supplier)

[–]Darwin42SW 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I don’t know how I feel about mushrooms. Obviously if they could help, I’d want to know, but I’m uneasy trying new things, especially anything psychoactive.

I just increased the dose of the ADHD med I’m on today, and I have another lined up to try if that doesn’t work out, so I’ll give that a try first.

[–]proffgilligan 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

A good friend says his adhd meds have been a game changer for the better. I hope they work for you, too.

Of course never combine the two, but maybe keep it in the back of your mind for somewhere down the road. Tons of sane info out there about it.

[–]ShanShen 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I have an annoying amount of things on my to-do list for tomorrow. But I’m going to relax this evening by reading or playing a computer game.

[–]knight_call1986 4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Things are going okay this week. Taking my mom to the doc for a checkup. I have a date tomorrow afternoon, so I am hoping it goes well.

Have a great weekend bruvs.

[–]ShanShen 4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Wishing you all the best as you take your mom to the checkup. Good job for taking care of that for her!

Good luck on the date.

[–]knight_call1986 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Thank you fam. Mom is coming along and getting better. The date went extremely well, almost felt like the perfect date.

[–]ShanShen 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

So glad for both!

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
