Sometimes, it takes some loud music to give me energy to make it through the day. Here's what the mix I've been playing today:

Nelly Furtado: Turn Out the Lights
Filter: Hey Man, Nice Shot
Stabbing Westward: Shame
Stabbing Westward: Haunting
Stabbing Westward: So Far Away
Fuel: Sunburn
Fuel: Hemmorage
Fuel: Innocent
Eve 6: Here's to the Night
Fatboy Slim: Weapon of Choice
Eve ft. Gwen Stefani: Let Me Blow Ya Mind
No Doubt: Bathwater
It might be helping. Or at least its pissing my mom off :wink: I'm so bad. But when she walks in the room, my side pains start up again. Its miraculous how that works.

Contrasting my last post, I did have a few successes this weekend. Measurable things that make me feel like I could be getting better with dealing with my anxiety, depression, and stress.

  • I had a delightful afternoon on Saturday. Wasn't worried about being in public or stressed about anything, I just was out with E.
  • I designed, publicized and coordinated a beautiful links page for the members of the silver ingrid boards. I got some sweet feedback on that, and I'm glad that I'm able to help out in a new project.
  • I baked cookies. That might not seem like much, but I haven't been able to have the energy to start on any cooking project for so many weeks/months(?). E was ecstatic.... I don't know if it was just the luxury of fresh baked things, or if he could tell that was a positive sign in my recovery.
  • Two naps. Two hours each.
So I can't say that the entire weekend was a failure. It wasn't at all. I just feel like there are so many other areas that I want to dedicate my time to, and I'm not able to. I take on too much, I know. Maybe today will be a good day.

Somedays, I feel like a failure in so many parts of my life. When I fail to accomplish the things that I know I need to do, my brain reels and yells at me. Why do I procrastinate some of these things that cause me to feel bad? Work makes me feel overall like a failure. I'll never make it through the piles there, and even if I did, there would be more the next day. I worked so hard on friday, and ended up feeling worse about myself than I had before because my mom felt like letting out her frustrations on me for some unknown reason... which made me overreact in front of dad, and when he asked what was wrong, I wouldn't tell him. Why not? I have no idea.

I feel like a failure in many of my online activities. Sure, I uploaded two new sets each of the last two weeks, but I didn't get anything productive done this weekend. I couldn't concentrate on it. I didn't get anything taken care of for my server this weekend, nor did I return emails or write new emails to the new people on blogplates like I wanted to.

I even fail at sleeping - I woke up so many times last night, and then between 3:45 and 4:17, I woke up every single minute and looked at the clock. I finally got up, but now I'm sitting here yawning so much, totally sleepy.

What kind of a way is this to start off my week? ::sigh::
