New Brain Please

My brain is broken,
I’m not sure that I’ll be fine,

Bad Haiku.

However it’s true. I am really stressed out right now. It’s making it hard to function. I am dreading doing what I was loving doing. I hate that.

My body absolutely responds to stress. I realize that we should have a fight or flight response to anxiety, but do you think spending hours in the commode is one of these? I think not. Unless you are a monkey, then you might be able to fling. Anyhow, enough about that, that could get seriously gross seriously fast. I think I am going to end up with an ulcer though.

I’m worried about the drive in 19 days, I am worried about getting everything packed, though I am packing every day. I am super stressed about hubby going on his trip next week. Ugh. It’s making me feel horrible. Yesterday we drove to Malibu so I could take some pictures and we spent 10 minutes at the beach, it took us about an hour to drive there. So more than two hours on the road because of a miss turn and all I did was spend ten minutes on the beach because things started gurgling and I had to head home. I wanted to sit out there and get some sun and I couldn’t.

I don’t know what to do about it. It’s slowing my roll. Just this past weekend I was out and exploring in Redondo beach and today I am doing calculations about how far I should go in case the need to retreat comes up. This is one of the reasons that my agoraphobia started in the first place and I really don’t want to step backwards. I suppose you need to push past the tough stuff. I would be open to any suggestions at this point. I don’t see a psychotherapist until July 1st so I am kind of on my own.

Also since I am painfully shy, I was thinking of doing a vlog once a week? Do you think this is a good start for practicing interacting? Please take a moment and vote on the poll. If people won’t watch I find it to be pretty pointless. I would even like to make it a few minute question/answer thing so it would be even more interactive. Anyhow, thanks!


  1. I recently wrote a post on my broken brain….and body to some extent.
    Not sure about the idea of a vlog. I think you’re right that getting viewers may be difficult.
    But it may be worth a shot.
    Are there any social groups that pique your interest in your local area?
    I have found great and now attend a few groups for which I have a shared interest. Theatre, atheists, 35+ social, sci fi & fantasy and a couple of discussion groups.
    Last night was the skeptics meeting where we heard a talk on morality and religion.
    Of course, morality occurs without religion.
    Having a common interest makes it is easier to make that first contact.


      1. For me, having something in common to start with relieved a lot of the anxiety I had. With nothing in common the anxiety kicked in.
