Man I wish they would get some actual blocks to do block pulls easier, off bumped plates is hard cause sometimes the bar doesn’t stay straight for me. I’d be eager to belt up and test my actual 1rm for that.

Every Christmas one of our clients hosts a lunch at the Mandarin. I prepare for that like a sporting event. I may even do lunges before we get there. There is no socializing. Then, for the rest of the day, I’m so sodium loaded I can barely walk. It’s good times :slight_smile:

bad news
I’ve lost my mind
and I don’t know if I can find it
good news
sometimes losing my mind makes me re evaluate my life and in the long run it can be a good thing

ive had a really hard time emotionally lately making myself go to work. Every day is like this huge battle and I need an entire cheer team in my head to reassure me I can survive the day. Every hour pep talks in the bathroom like 5 more hours, 3 more hours, etc. etc…
I mean it’s not my passion or my heart, I’m not good at it in any way. It doesn’t fully support me financially and I still rely on my parents to pick up what I can’t. I have no future or direction in it because deep down I hate it and I have no ambition to work towards a career that I hate.
So yesterday I broke down, because sometimes I have difficulty controlling my emotions in situations where maybe someone (sane) can.
I started having a panic attack at lunch in the bathroom. Not even over anything. I just got shakey and started crying and I knew I had to go home.
So I told my boss I didn’t feel well and I needed to leave
so I left
and I felt like, I cant go back there, this is what complete emptiness feels like
I need goals, I need to have dreams and pursue things that matter to me so I can be happy.

Anyway, I felt sick with emotions for hours, just couldn’t stop crying. Was in the bath for over an hour just sobbing. Couldn’t sleep. 8 o clock, 9 o clock 10 o lock. I couldn’t fall asleep cause all I could think about was how I wanted to die. Not like I actually wanted to kill myself, I just wanted a break from existing because I found my life overwhelmingly exhausting and I didn’t (don’t) know how to keep living it this way.
At like 8 marshall said he might be able to come over later, but then buddies came over and they had a few so he said hed come over the next morning
but as my panic attack worsened I texted him and said I don’t feel good I wish you were here, but he promised me the second he woke up he’d come over
I fell asleep for about an hour and then I heard him, he came over, came in(he has a key) and just laid beside me all night to comfort me. I saw in the morning he sent me a text like, on my way, don’t have my key, let me in, babe let me in. I was like how did you get in, you didn’t have a key?
Oh, I went back home and came all the way back.
I was like
holy
shit
this is the single, most nicest gesture anyone has ever done for me
blew me away
Truly
made me feel like ok, things are going to be okay some day

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about massage therapy. Actually for over a year now I kept wishing I didn’t spend the tuition money my dad saved for me on sign language so I could have taken this instead
I want to do this somehow
Student loans, move back home and take it part time and work part time and maybe give my parents rent money or something
So fine, its embarrassing that a 30 year old woman has none of her shit together and has to move back home, but I don’t know
I need to work towards something cuz standing around all day long welcoming people to the branch and counting their money does not fill my heart in the slightest

K…ya

Felt pretty bad about myself during this whole workout cause I thought I looked fat or whatever

video proof that I sorta do look like I need to drop some
also that I’m really hard on myself
etc…

Basically I don’t remember if I told you a few weeks ago marshall lost his job for a really stupid minor little thing. Really seemed like a bad excuse and they were just looking for any reason to fuck him over.
So he’s been understandably really depressed and doesn’t deal with his emotions well, or at all for that matter.
He just ends up drinking way too often and becoming and emotionless blob. WHICH ISNT ABOUT ME, but it IS very hard on ME .
He’s distant and un caring and uncommunicative and it impacts me and my self esteem, but it’s not like I can be like HEY man shape up, you’re being a shit, because why kick a man when he’s down?
But as the weeks go by I find I’m getting depressed and I feel like I want nothing to do with this person whom I love and who is obviously hurting a great deal. He refuses to let me help in any way.
I asked him if I could take him out to cheer him up
he rejected me
I asked him if he needed a place to stay for a while until something local popped up so he wouldn’t have to move to find work
he rejected me
I asked him if I could lend him money
that made him upset
I asked him if I could come over
he said no

So I’m like wow, you are making me feel like a pathetic sack of shit
but he’s too depressed to even talk shit out with me

I don’t know how long a person is supposed to wait in such a situation
forever I guess
because bad times happen
I guess
I Dunno, but I feel very conflicted

yaaaa
good but awfulz

so I decided yesterday would be a good day to show marshall his vday gift early (the lego portrait thingie I’ve been excited about for a month :/)

so I showed it to him and all he did was kinda laugh and then not talk to me for hours
like hours
im like wtf
I don’t even get athank you
so I finally texted again like
ookay thennnnnnnn
hes like oh ya sorry thanks
wow
I was completely crushed
So hurt
So I said if you don’t want to be with me anymore just say so
feeling strong
but then he said he didn’t
so I died inside
feeling weak
and apologized and told him I loved him and I asked him if he would come over
and he said maybe
so I waited for hours
cause my panic attack wouldn’t end so its not like I could sleep anywayyy
but I kept thinking I heard a vehicle or my door open but it never did and he never came …
So this morning I texted and wanted to make sure he really wanted to be done with me hoping he was just drunk and he’d take it back …
but he didn’t and he felt the same
My anxiety was as intense as like however long ago when he first completely destroyed my soul
I couldn’t breath
I was like clenching my chest and gasping for air
then I felt like a pathetic piece of shit, humiliated image in my head of him ever seeing me like this and laughing at me for being such a clingy loser.
Who has to be this pathetic for this long over someone \\\ ?!
I do that’s who
I thought no way I can do this alone
So my parents got me and took me to the doc
and he was so understanding and compassionate, I couldn’t believe it.
I guess I’m just used to most people looking at me or talking to me like anxiety isn’t a real thing or its just made up or controllable when , for some people, that couldn’t be further from the truth …

ne way

Damn it girl! Sorry to hear this.

Oh dear. I’m so sorry about your troubles. I suspect much of his problem was losing his job. That effects a persons self esteem like crazy and can be one of the most upsetting, stress and depression inducing events. Unfortunately, your relationship is collateral damage. Many people, when dealing with that type of thing, retreat to lick their proverbial wounds and that may be what’s going on with him.

Sadly, the result is the same for you and you’ve had your stuff turned upside down. Just keep breathing and moving forward.

SO anyway
yesterday
I got SSRI’s as you know, and “in case of extreme emergency” anti anxiety shit for very rare occasions, like yesterday post workout…

Spent most of the day sleeping in my closet, my go-to safe haven. I decided to get back on tinder (barf), and pick my self up right away, and was I in complete denial about everything. Deep down just feeling like, ok, he’s making a mistake and I am FINE FINE FINE.
Then he sent me a text telling me he was going to come by and return my key.
I ran downstairs like holy shit I need this fucking emergency pill STAT
nownownownwn
They SAY it’s supposed to work in 15 minutes, but it didn’t
I went total nutso, curled up in a ball, kicking the walls like a person who should be locked up in a mental ward. I kept thinking like, no, he promised
Two weeks ago he said I love you and ill never leave u and I promise this I promise that, blablah

My mom came over and sat with me for a couple hours which was really helpful . She kept reassuring me that this wasn’t my fault…
But it was such a strange sensation to me from feeling like I was losing my mind to complete and utter brain silence.
Like WAH WAHWHA AHA WHHW to (…)
Just dead air space
I texted him back and said no you are not returning my key, you are making a mistake and I do not support this decision.
Then he answered
"I agree"

wait what…
He said i’ll come over later and we can just talk
but then I sort of got the feeling that he just wanted to come over to dump me in person and I told him he wasn’t allowed to do that, he could only come over if he was just going to reassure me that everything is going to be fine.
He said he’d come over at like 10:30 when his ex was off work to watch his daughter .
The next few hours were super weird for me though. When that pill really started to kick in I felt so out of it and I feel asleep before 7. When I woke up I honestly didn’t remember how the conversations I was having with people on FB had ended or the emails I sent my mom. I re read them today like ohh, ok…
but he actually did come over exactly at 10:30
Nobody really said anything at first and I said well if you’re going to talk you better talk…
He said I dunno, you were just freaking out about everything. Talking crazy shit. I was shitty to everyone, not just you. The only reason I hung out with my friends and not you was because they just showed up and forced themselves over.

So you don’t want to dump me?
It wasn’t a dumping, I thought it was just like mutual .

I think he thought all the frustration in my texts made it seem like I wanted to end it or I was thinking about ending it so he ended it first.
But his assumptions were right, I felt like I wanted out of it until he took it away, and I realized how I don’t want out of it and the thought of being out of it terrifies me completely.

Anyway, I honestly don’t know, my head is just a mess right now at a time that it’s not typically a mess. I can’t blame it on PMS or hormones, it’s just me.
I feel trapped in a relationship that isn’t enough for me emotionally, but I can’t leave it because I love him and melt down completely even thinking about a world without him in it.
I feel trapped in a dead-end job that I keep because it meets all my obsessive requirements about not having to sit at all, or work evenings or whatever.
I feel like I’m living a life that is dictated to me by my ailments VS living a life that I actually want to live. That a mentally healthy version of me could be living.

ANyway this post is way too long, someone is supposed to call me any day to meet with my and get assessed and set up for regular therapy visits with someone. Really looking forward to that.

K every single rep of every single set of ever step of ever single second of this workout was a battle
Having troubles adjusting to this SSRI stuff and its making me really nauseated, drowsy and my whole body aches.
Slept most of the day yesterday and couldn’t really eat my supper.
Two things that are super weird for me cause I usually don’t even let myself sit to watch a 30 minute tv show and my whole life revolves around anticipating supper…

Do not like.

But hey, I’m not hyperventilating all day, so that’s something…
