Sorry for the late post. I wasn't in the right frame of mind to post tlcs this morning.

* postpone appointment because I need food, and don't have the energy to do both - yes
* get food - yes. Only a bit, though: ran out of energy
* keep decluttering books. Yes. Have covered the dining room table with books to sell & donate. Added to the ones already stored in the garage, that's a LOT.
* ring book shop to see if they want books - yes
* make a social phone call - yes
* make bed - yes
* rest - yes
* take meds - yes
* get some sun if it comes out - yes
* TRY to do some dishes because the ants are still invading - doing


NCOT, celebrate what you're accomplishing. You're doing more than I could a few months ago, and should (imho) be proud of that. Babysteps, remember.

Ivy, still sore.

hugs Ivy

Friday TLC

* clean up after accident - done
* rinse out pj bottoms - done
* shove everything in empty drawers in my room
* play with kittens
* wipe down kitchen counters
* dishes

bonus points
* be nice to mum even though i dont like her right now
* try to be nice to mum's fella who is coming tonight and staying the weekend

I'm hoping this weekend will pass quickly so i can get back to my life again. Mum has totally ignored the fact i'm not comfortable with him coming up this weekend. So much of the time i feel like i just dont matter. I was talking to her last night, telling her about my day. I stopped talking mid-sentance and she didnt even notice.

I'm not feeling so energized today. Was supposed to go to friends and clean carpet, but my stomach's hurting and I don't want to risk going out of the house.

I did get a couple things done last night...sprayed weeds in the backyard, along the curb and sidewalk.

Choc, I hope things go better than you are anticipating this weekend, or maybe just faster so you can get back to normalcy. (((hugs)))) to you!

Ivy, get some rest! Your body probably needs it!

@Ivy - Thanks :p

I'm finding that doing more stuff is helping. I haven't lived a 'normal' life for so long that forging a new one is going to be a very slow and very painful process - but I'm gonna give it a shot. After a decade of being a hermit, I need to learn how to re-engage with the outside world.

You are right about baby steps. In one sense it's taken my entire life so far to reach this point - not just a decade. I'm beginning to fleetingly glimpse certain things and I hope those insights can stay with me and provide a few stepping stones towards an independent life. Crohn's and depression between them have made me morbid: for too long now I've had the sense of death overhanging me. (I am not talking suicide here...)

Sorry. It's late and I'm tired, and thus my thoughts are probably taking a melancholy, rambling turn. My lowest ebbs nearly always occur at night. Rest assured that despite my dreading it this morning, my day did not turn out too badly in the end. I got over my morning grottiness and had a pleasant day with the nephews. (I've made a rod for my own back there, as they always expect me to play with them/spend time with them... :-/)

@Choc - I'm sorry about your mum. From everything I've read, I do think she does care about you, but she sounds a bit distracted and in her own world. If she's anything like my mum, talking to her while she is in the middle of doing anything is fatal. If you want her undivided attention then you have to make it obvious. Depressed people are extremely sensitive to rejection, but non-depressed folks tend not to realise that, and thus it doesn't occur to them that simple inattention can hurt.

Okay, I'd better go to bed soon. So braindead... :-/
