I got up around, I dunno, a little past 10? I ate a small breakfast, talked with a friend, did a little shopping, ate lunch and sat around for a bit, talked with the friend for a couple more hours, then helped out a little bit when she closed up the cafe she works at.

It's 7 PM now and I am utterly exhausted. I even had coffee earlier today, and I'm the kind of person who can't have coffee after 1 PM because it'll keep me up all night because I never drink coffee and am therefore strongly affected by it.


When can I please have some goddamn energy? My apartment's in shambles, I need to clean out the weeks of empty cans and plastic bags.

Nah, you need kerosene and a match. It's easier that way.

Although you do also get a flash of accomplishment when you clear out your depression nest.

They tagged some random person who was in the wrong place at the wrong time as well.

I hereby wholehearthedly agree. Keep up the good work folks today is not the day to watch the world □□□rn.


On another note: I hear spirits & liquors burn quite nicely too but I think that's a matter for an awesome thread.

UPS is a bunch of cowards, thanking the police for murdering one of their drivers who was taken hostage.

They didn't even bother mentioning his name.

Now, the last report I read said they were not sure who actually killed him.

Has that changed?

Officially, it is under investigation.


Unofficially, you don't pop your hostage when you have cops closing in on you - that's the only leverage you have. I'd give it 10 to 1 that the cops started blasting away first.

I always try to do that whole devil's advocate let's be fair to everyone gumdrops and rainbows etc thing, but yeah 10-1 sounds about right.

So, felt absolutely slaughtered and got to bed at 7:30. Almost slept until about 10, where in my restlessness I did a quick saltwater gargle to try and ward off the cold that's trying to attack me. Went back to bed and continued not sleeping until now, 1:34 AM.

This is apparently what I get for drinking coffee twelve hours ago. Fuck.

Screw it. Netflix binge.

Nothing like mindless entertainment to enjoy without pushing any exhaustion until sleep arrives eventually.

Netflix binges are slightly easier when you have a Netflix account!

And there is a fair amount of eyestrain involved in stuff like that, so I figured just resting and trying to conserve strength was the best course of action... Especially seeing as I didn't really have a lot of energy, so getting up and doing stuff wasn't any more appealing than it usually is(n't). I just couldn't sleep.

Been struggling a lot with my mind lately. Mostly just want to sleep so I don't have to spend time thinking about stuff because it always cycles around to thinking about my mental and physical health and that's a bad place to get into, but my sleep isn't restful because I've been having strange and disturbing dreams every night for over a month.

Don't want to talk to my family about this stuff because frankly everyone's got enough of their own stuff to worry about and I get uncomfortable talking about it with people anyway. I just kind of want to melt or something, just gently cease to be for a while, but I can't escape my own mind, or the constant physical pains reminding me I exist.

On a conscious level I know it's irrational, but I feel bad whenever I go to the doctor about this, about the fact I'm on medication, about the resources that get spent on me when I know my problems aren't even that bad all things considered. I know that's just part of the depression affecting me, but it's hard to shake the feeling sometimes that it's all a waste.

A lot of that does sound like the old familiar depression. As for the sleep, have you tried relaxing with some low-stakes tv or something? PeeWee's playhouse works for me when I'm stressed, because nothing really happens, and also it reminds me of the good parts of childhood (watching tv). Video games may or may not work for you, depending on if they relax or stress you out. I mean, the light isn't good for your sleep, but I guess the alternative is reading in the dark or something.

I was reading through many of the tweets replying to it, feeling more and more disdain for people continuing the nonsense, until I read one at the bottom which said it was not just stupid but it was untrue, and realized I hate it when people donít take the time to understand itís nonsense more.
