We need to acknowledge that just making it through the day sometimes is all we can do.
We need to acknowledge that life can overwhelm you.
We need to acknowledge that being overwhelmed is ok.
We need to accept the possibility of bad things happening and believe that bad things happening does not equal us having a bad life.
We need to give ourselves credit for stepping up to the plate and just working to get through the shitty times in life.
The fantasy lives we’re shown in the media taints our world view just like magazine covers skew people’s body images. Life is a mixture of good, bad, happy and sad.
Just deciding to keep living after having a shit-tastic day, week, month, year or decade is a WIN.
Need this today.
Need to look at this every day for a while.
Things will get better, and in the mean time, just making it through is still a win.
It turned out to not be a pain I had to stop for…still painful, but I could work around it,
I’m just barely making my steps every day. It’s the one thing going the way it should, but I don’t have the brain power to push harder right now. Just barely is enough.
As long as I make it at the end of the day, at least that one thing went right for the day.

Hitting a little to close to home there.
Currently stuck in Army limbo because of rules. Not comfortable telling you guys more because I am not sure of the rules.
The illogical rules in my head say I should eat nothing today, go back to sleep, and avoid telling people how I feel.
(This is all the truth, but it feels like a cop out. My brain can’t handle more right now though.)
I wait a while to give it time to kick in, inevitably think, “This shit isn’t working!” then five minutes later I fall asleep. (So far have only had to use at bedtime, when I usually take some anyway.)
Anyway…currently waiting for it to kick in…it’s still too soon to claim it’s not working, but maybe posting about it will help speed up the process…or kill time waiting…same thing.
You will not get to bed early.
