Workplace. Unhappy with work environment. I *need* to leave.  Last few months were bad, last few weeks have been awful.

It's funny but I've found that whenever I'm leaving the people coming at the clinic are among the first to tell that it's happening, without me saying anything.  It's also the ones I find the hardest to deal with when they ask me not to.  :-\

You need to look after yourself before you're able to look after others. They'd understand, even if they ask you to stay first. You got anything lined up, or willing to go untethered for a little while?

I'm more than willing to go untethered. Really, finding jobs is not hard in my job. I have offers, both back home and abroad. I do want to take a few months for myself though, because I'm utterly crushed by this place.

I do have to give notice as per my contract, at least three months. And furthermore, it's always hard to detach yourself, esp from the people you like. And in particular make arrangements to make sure everyone in my clinic is OK and being looked after.

I'd almost forgotten how it feels to live with someone who is... insert long list of adjectives that mean bad person, I guess.

That's rough, Shadow. I hope you can get out of that situation soon.

I think I may have a minor case of food poisoning, and I think it's from some orange truffles I had about... 8 hours ago. Assuming it can develop that fast. Regardless, I've got some diarrhoea-esque symptoms (I'm going to keep light on the details here), I keep burping and it's always tasting of the orange truffles (hence the suspicion), I've got some minor chills, my stomach's definitely bloated out because my belt no longer fits, I've got no appetite, I'm tired, the thought of eating makes me feel ill, and I've got general nausea.

Hopefully it goes away quickly and doesn't develop beyond this. And hopefully I don't decide to have a vomit/diarrhoea episode when someone's on the shitter or there's going to be some cleaning up to do.

Resist the urge to correct... thinking about moving halfway between your previous lives or what's up Poo?

Looks like 8 hours is too short for it to be food poisoning, so probably just the normal kind. Hth.

I started learning French by myself last week so I'm nowhere near the level of fluency needed to practice in a francophone country...

That being said, I dont rule out taking an intensive course. My overall feeling is that as a Latin based language its close enough to Spanish to make learning it easier than it would be otherwise.

We'll see. I have to think about what I'll do in the near future

Potential landlord was supposed to get back to me with an answer on Wednesday regarding whether or not I'd been selected as the renter. It's now 00:01 on Friday, and I haven't heard a peep yet.

Which, y'know, doesn't look good. I guess that means I'm not getting this place either. Shame. That was my last lead.


Back to Square Fuck, I suppose.

What you need to do is talk to someone. Venting about an issue to someone you trust can seriously help to relieve the pressure buildup. I've also been experimenting with pumping up the volume on angry music with headphones, and it can take some of the edge off for certain situations.


Personally, I tend towards harm methods that don't leave particularly noticeable or long-lasting marks. Helps me feel less guilty about it afterwards. It's still not great though.

I'm not going to pretend to properly understand the reasons behind self-harm. I've never had it happen to me and I've never seen it properly discussed, so I'm not sure as to why people do it. If it's based in pain, however, there are other outlets for that. At the very least, you could buy some ghost chillies and eat them. If it's something else, well, I'm not much help.

But talk to someone. Someone you know you can trust. If they've been through it themselves (BUT ARE NOT ACTIVELY SELF-HARMING! If they are from what I've been told it can be comforting to talk to them, but it causes both of you to tend to feed off of one another), then it's likely they'll have a much better response because they know what it's like. Failing that, family. If they aren't responding well, friends. If they don't, then it's probably time to go to a mental health professional or a doctor.
