I've been feeling pretty anxious recently due to political stuff, but there's been a growing uneasiness unrelated to that.  Total cabin fever.  I chat with strangers, but that's serious and distant.  I have a few people who like to send me music, but they're getting depressed as well...  the 3-4 of us are drinking too much.

I'm sitting here trying to feel sleepy and just obsessing over the first properly seasoned meal I've had in two weeks.  Visiting a taco truck.  They had cow tongue (lengua) on the menu, but unsurprisingly they were out, so I had my quesadillas with chorizo instead.  And verde sauce on the side salad.

I keep thinking about it.  Not really the food, though it was... mmm, onions and green peppers with a proper mix of spices.  Okay yes the food.  But also just the interaction with the person.  In person.

I need to call each of my parents tomorrow.  But more generally, this suuuuuucks and I'm getting sick of being curled in a ball.
(It did feel good to walk though, and catch some pokémans.  ...poképeople?  oh FRICK pretend I didn't say that, but I'll leave it.)

Edit: Like it started with him taking my order before I was ready, but I wasn't sure I could make myself heard over the running generator, so I held up a finger.  And he understood.  And that's such a human connection - frick I'm tearing up.  I've been tearing up over the weirdest stuff lately.  That's why I'm posting this, I apparently really need to cry and I don't exactly know why.  I happen to see a reply to my comment on some video and suddenly I'm hit with an emotional wave and tears are flowing uncontrollably.  I'm too dignified to wail but they're flowing now just from me remembering it.

So uh yeah, sometimes people fill up on emotions and need to cry them out.

Edit2:  I keep waking up to Discord beeps from notified channels because I need to be constantly reminded that other people are out there.

Edit3: Obviously he could hear me over the generator, but with my amplified and already significant social anxiety I didn't feel I could express "I'm not ready to order" clearly while distracted by the grating sound, working against both my voice and my ability to think.

It may be too late but lots of water will at least take the edge off.

On the one hand, it seems having a beer's helped with the stress for now.

On the other hand, I know exactly where that leads (Which is why I stopped drinking for a while earlier this year), and it's instead replaced the stress with other unhappy feelings.

Generally speaking this lockdown is good for my liver.  I've never been someone to drink much at home.

I do miss going to the pub on fridays and crawling home

Although it also increases the chances of wetting yourself in your sleep ;)

borderline personality

I don't think my sister has a borderline personality, only that she's very stupid and resists any attempt to change that. I honestly want to have a meaningful conversation, but she just shuts me down and refuses to talk to me. I picked her up from the hospital, with the blood test confirming the pregnancy. Throughout the car ride I'm trying to think of the words to be properly convincing, it's only right as we pull up to her home that I can think of what to say, and I'm trying to tell her the reality that introducing a child into a poor household with an unready mother is just going to make it suffer, and that she should take my suggestion seriously, and she just cuts the conversation short and walks away. I've never been able to have very good conversations with her, and now that the subject is so deadly serious it is even harder.

I just can't think of any way to say it that is more tactful, and time is of the essence, so I can't help but be blunt about it, as mean as it makes me sound.


That's a very good suggestion Vector, though I don't know anyone that fits that criteria, being an antisocial bastard with few social ties. There's one other member of my family who I'd say is a good mother, having three sons of her own, all grown now. Perhaps I could solicit daycares, or random Mothers on Craigslist or something, asking to let my sister have firsthand experience with young children, though I'd need to get my Sister on board with the idea first. Though honestly the first part of that plan sounds like an awful idea, and I would never consider it under normal circumstances, but this isn't a normal circumstance.
