Finally I've seen the flat that we're going to be moving to! It's still being built, but it's coming along nicely. I feel renewed hope that we'll be able to move soon. Probably next month?

So... Feeling hopeful with muted excitement. :D

Incredibly disappointed.

Earlier this week I actually started to feel a bit more positive for a change. I planned a few things to do, and did a bit more exercise. Then suddenly out of no where, it felt like I hit a wall this morning. I actually got up in good time for work for a change, and got to my car ready to drive to work, but just sat there. I could have been really early to work, but instead I was 15 minutes late (thankfully no one noticed, especially as I’m not that important there).
I’m just so angry with myself. I’ve put in lots of effort over the years to try and improve myself, but I’m still not much different to when I was a teenager. It all feels like it was for nothing. Don’t feel I fit in at work and struggle to communicate. Don’t feel a part of my local community. I feel like my few remaining friends are becoming too different to me (I don’t include the great people I’ve met through SAUK in that statement though!). Basically I just feel lonely and pathetic.

I feel very down too. Also very stressed. I'm quite a self disciplined person and sometimes manage to spend time alone constructively, but no matter what I do lately, the loneliness seems to be really getting to me. Everything I do just feels like a waste of time

All the best for your new job affluenza. I often find things are not as bad as you feel when it comes to starting new jobs / volunteering etc. I hope that is the same for you.

it's frustrating when you want to move out and there's nothing.

Default Re: How is everyone feeling? (31)

Anxious with a capital A!

I wish I could rationalise things better instead of just expecting the worst possible outcome.
I keep thinking about the future and just can't see anything positive, several of my elderly relatives are getting increasingly frail, my mum isn't in the best of health either.
It feels like the few things that are constants in my life are slowly crumbling.

Feeling flipping cold.
Went to weight group. (Lost 2Ib not much but only started properly last Thur/Fri). All was well, walked back to town with one of the ladies who is very chatty.
Ended up standing talking in the car park, bloody hell how can ppl just chat away about themselves and their lives so easily. Anyhoo group finished at 3pm, left the lady at 4.10pm!! Missed my bus, so am now waiting for the 16.50 and freezing to death.
My fault for not checking the time or being assertive but even so.
