So, true to form I completely lost track of what I did what day. Had a day or two of being a bit rubbish, but managed to do something most days. Am going to actually start keeping track of things properly this week, and see how that goes.

Update

So, further to my post back in November about how I was finding it hard to cope with life, I am doing better now. I went to the doctor, and explained that I wanted back on the anti-depressants I was on two years ago. We had a chat, and she seemed happy that I knew what I was talking about, and put me on a low does of Fluoxetine to see if it helped. So far it seems to be. I'm slowly managing to sort my head out, and have realised a few things about why I reacted the way I did to certain things and situations. I've also decided that some things just aren't worth the hassle and effort I put into them. If people don't appreciate me, I need to stop wasting energy on them. It's better for me, even if it's hard for me to do because I'm too nice.

In other news, I've been feeling more like I actually want to do things. But, I have a terrible habit of procrastination. Therefore, in order to try and keep up with things, and actually start getting things done, I am going to try and do at least one useful and proactive thing a day (even if it's just housework, it counts), and to keep myself to this, I'm going to keep a diary on here which I'll update each week. Hopefully, this will keep me motivated to keep doing it.

Struggling

Share
pony
I'm really struggling to cope with life at the moment, and have been for a while. I thought it was just a blip caused by the upheaval of the break up and moving. But, it's not going away. I feel sad almost constantly, I'm anxious and little things can set me off. And this is steadily getting worse. I know this has affected friendships and relationships recently. And now it's affecting me at events too. I think i need to accept that this is not a blip, it's not going away anytime soon and I need help coping again.

This was a weird event for me. I was finding it hard to get into Amy's headspace, which meant I spent a large amount of the weekend finding it hard to react to things properly. So, anyways:

Balrogs:
OC issues colouring everything, and making it hard to stay IC.
Main toilet still having stuff growing in it, I saw a mushroom in the door frame of one on Thursday Night.
Being ordered off site for long periods of time, meant that it was hard to get back IC again afterwards.
Losing 5 characters, two of whom were in my group. We were growing damnit!
Yet again, not spending time down the guild. I kept ending up doing other things.
Having a security team member not turn up, and having to reorganise the rota to account for it.
Missing Pete. There were times where Amy really needed her boyfriend.
The weather. I got burnt, and it rained just in time for us to take the tent down.

Archons
Opening Linear. I have never been so terrified IC. It was awesome, and was the first time I was convinced that I was about to lose Amy. Running through the trees, with no idea of where we were going was spectacular.
First Spear banter, was it's usual fun.
The First Spear tent appears to be the place to go when you want to hide from something, or just need a place to chill.
Being a demon in Karnak's ritual. That was awesome fun. Will happily monster rituals again.
Fear of death. While I hated the fact it made me have to go OC, the fear of death the dismiss wedges caused was great roleplay while I was IC.
My back managed to survive an event intact. It was awesome!
Realising something IC, which I'd already realised OC. Means I have a decision to make.
I got lots of cuddles. I like cuddles.
Discovering that Dale is the exact right height for me to use his shoulder as a pillow.
The weather, yeah I'm fickle. It was nice to have a sunny event, just wish it wasn't quite “that” hot.
