    ugh ugh ugh one person from the company that hired me has been saying for like weeks that they applied for my visa for me and the decision will be in by tomorrow and that i'd have info about my flight shortly after and now another person is saying tomorrow i'll just have my certificate of sponsorship and then i'll have to apply for the visa myself?! like
    ok either i can move in and start this job around the start date of 11 DAYS FROM NOW or i still have to apply for a visa that usually takes 3 weeks to process, IT CANT BE BOTH
    not to mention i'm already working on applying for a house share that needs my visa for me to be approved and the people's current housemate is moving out the 25th and it's a perfect house for me in every way and i can't lose it but if i have to fucking still apply for my visa then alkjsdflaj none of this is going to work
    dear god please let the most recent message be mistaken i literally need my visa tomorrow plz

    Over the course of the past two years, the main focus of my anxiety has shifted from "everyone thinks I'm weird and either hates or pities me," to "the world is either going to end or go to shit within my lifetime," and I never thought I'd miss being self conscious about every little thing I do 24/7 but this is so much worse than that was. I know I need to stop thinking about the future so negative and catastrophicly but I don't know how.

    I have no idea.
    Well, it's this post, but I genuinely don't understand why I'm having this reaction to it. It happens surprisingly often, actually, another example from a while back was people talking about top surgery.

    How do people journal, i dont understand. My old case manager suggested i start one, and it basically meant in the end i had lots of empty journals. Twoish years later ive got a new cm and she wants me to try journaling too.

    Its just. I dont kmow what to write? What do i write. I dont understand, you cant just say write whatever i want or write about feelings without explaining fully! I need direction! I cant just write whatever and call it a day! What does she want!!! :psyduck:

    i'd suggest that you just treat it like a physical version of your vent thread. 'cause a vent thread - minus the human interaction - is esssentially what a journal is, i think.

    It's nearly an hour past med time, but I can't get up without my cat being disturbed. It's almost time to feed the dogs as well. Send help, I can't handle this :'(

    Edit: I moved her, but now I feel all guilty.

    I'm getting a lot of quasi panic attacks too
    today I had a few moments where I was very convinced I might die of heatstroke despite being in the shade
    I was nauseous and dizzy and couldn't focus on anything and felt like I would die. but what are u gonna do. ur in public and gotta keep going
    I only work about 55 hours a week, I feel like I should be able to handle that without panic attacks and crying fits.

  20. Jove

    Jove [ destination defenestration ]

    Need color blind testing, afraid that eye doctor doesn’t do that kind of test and just how much it’s going to cost.

    Need to call the appeals office to ask if I need to gather medical records for the last six to eight months, considering the stuff I was sent to review only shows up to December 2017.

    Know I’m going to have a really bad brain day and anxious about telling people, because I’m paranoid they’ll think I’ll take it out on them intentionally (even though I’ve set up all the Sure Fire Ways/Things that help me well ahead of time). Having a hard time finding a professional that even offers the specific help I need because apparently despite having a very comprehensive learning medical hospital with extensive mental health branches, for some reason no one does DBT. Just. How????

    Don’t want to take migraine meds because I’ll be unable to get even a single thing done later today.

    Anxious about worrying people. Anxious Teagan hasn’t gotten enough sleep and even though I know her epilepsy is well controlled, still paranoid lack of sleep will trigger a seizure.

    Basically Just Anxious, the Jove Edition.
