Ooh, what a mess (trigger for ED)

Posted by SilverandBlue , 24 July 2014 · 78 views

I had T today, and made quite a fool of myself I fear. The things most on my mind were my cousin's recent hospitalization for an eating disorder and hearing the phrase: " oh, such a lucky girl!" Trigger warning for ED and potential other random things.
We discussed my cousin for a little bit, mostly I wanted to know how worried I should be, and turns out...

The good and the bad

Posted by SilverandBlue , 21 July 2014 · 41 views

The good: PT finally got back to me today!! She is getting shoulder surgery in November but will fit me in if something opens up meanwhile 😄
Happy days!! The pain will go away soon hopefully!

The bad: T has gotten busy. She has no openings on Wednesday except 6pm, and I work at 6pm 😒
While I'm glad her schedule is busier and people are...

Physical pain

Posted by SilverandBlue , 21 July 2014 · 38 views

I have a leg length discrepancy of an inch, my bones on one side either stopped growing too early or didn't grow fast enough it my grown plates were damaged. Either way, it leaves the same thing. PAIN. Imagine being constantly on a slant. One hip is higher than the other, my spine has started to curve already and I'm only 19!

I have a physical therapist...

Lithium and pillows

Posted by SilverandBlue , 18 July 2014 · 69 views

That's what I took away from today's session with T. Lithium and pillows. It sounds odd, so I will try to explain. It was mostly a good session today.

See, T has another patient that apparently has the same behavior pattern as I. Extreme anxiety about specific things, horrible memory, always losing things, always getting traffic tickets and into accident...

I have had quite a day today. Dentist in the morn, which I was late for. I have tooth problems, as I eat far too much sugar. So I got 2 teeth worked on today, and lately I haven't been numbing very well. The last time, they had to redo the novocaine 3 times! The third one was the strongest one they had, and they put it as close to the nerve as they safely...

Set off so easily *potential trigger*

Posted by SilverandBlue , 14 July 2014 · 35 views

I put a trigger warning just in case because I never know what I'm going to write, and today's mood is kind of triggers anyway...
I struggle to hear others talk about anything even remotely sexual. Or read what others write about it. So, even being on pandys and reading entries about horrific assaults and rapes just sends me into a downward spiral.

I do...

Shudder *trigger*

As I lay in bed last night, and not even my own bed so I couldn't curl into the crevice between the wall and the bed to hide. I just got hit with the most unbelievable wave of self loathing and horrible sadness. No warning, no real trigger. Just all at once.

The images from 2nd grade started playing again, and I couldn't stop wondering why the heck I fe...

Nice calming appointment

Posted by SilverandBlue , 09 July 2014 · 31 views

I was worried about today, considering the cringingly honest email I sent, but it was a good appt. I was in a very jittery, childlike mood and ended up laying on the couch. T was in a very good mood, and so was I. I had my stuffed dog, and was manipulating the face into different shapes and giggling. T was on the couch with me today, and giggling right al...

I hate this. I really, really do. *TW

Posted by SilverandBlue , 03 July 2014 · 43 views

I hate walking into T and doing nothing. That's basically what I did today. I walked in and sat on the floor. Told her about mom's surgery, my new car (!! Yay!!) and then told her what was bothering me.
Why did I feel so strongly that I had been caught and told on? In my memory, there is nothing to suggest that anything of the sort happened but yet I hav...

I hardly talk to my family!

Posted by SilverandBlue , 27 June 2014 · 75 views

I do, actually. If weather, daily topics and such count. I do a LOT of that. But talking about important things? Nuh uh. No sir, I will NOT! Or at least my sister.
See, I tend to absolutely FREAK if a random guy approaches me in a store or something. I am not kidding, I actually fear for my life when that happens. I get so terrified I completely shut off...
