Life Update

I just wanted to update everyone on life in general. Quarantine is driving me insane. I am a major hermit and rarely leave my house anyway, but being stuck inside involuntarily is driving me insane. I can not wait to go to the mountains and just be one with nature and not have to worry about dying from some crazy virus. I have not seen my family since early February. I have not been feeling well and did not want to expose anyone and since I have been to the Doctor and on steroids I need to wait at least two more weeks before I go around them.

I am currently being evaluated by my Dr. I had a huge weight loss and I am not trying to lose weight so it is very concerning to me. My Dr., On the other hand, was excited for me. She seems to think it is the stress that is doing it, but ordered some bloodwork just in case. I mean 20 pounds in two months is kinda crazy. I have not been exercising and since we have been in quarantine it has been all comfort food.

My mental health is okay. I am still having major anxiety and depression, but not on the scale it was a couple of weeks ago. I am trying to stay busy and not dwell on things I can not change. Playing online games and being active in Discord has really helped with my mental state. I am looking forward to finding a good Psychiatrist who is open to alternative medicines. I am also looking forward to finally facing my PTSD in therapy. I think it is very important to get this taken care of this month since it is Mental Health Awareness month.


  1. In the past I've had an episode where I lost weight for no apparent reason, after all the tests though, everything came out ok. They even redid some of the tests, seems like one day you can produce a reading they don't like, and on the next test produce a reading that is Normal.

Americans need access to Mental Healthcare NOW

This originally started out as a tweet after I became upset after searching for Therapy for myself. I suffer from PTSD, Panic Disorder, and a Mood Disorder. Last fall I went off of the 4 different medications I was on because I could not function. I was a zombie all the time and had no quality of life. Because I am no longer on those medications I struggle every day. Especially during times like these when my PTSD is triggered by the current events. I made a promise to someone that I would get help. Today I was looking into therapy. One therapy I am particularly interested in is Ketamine Therapy. Ketamine Treatment can save lives. Especially for individuals like me who are medication-resistant. I have tried every medicine currently available for my disorders. None of them made the soul-crushing depression go away. The side effects outweighed the benefits which is why I was advised to detox from them. I went through three long months of withdrawals after being on one of the medications

Addressing the reoccuring sexual assault theme of SAO from a survivors point of view ***TRIGGER WARNING***

Recently I was asked my thoughts on the reoccurring sexual assault themes in SAO. My friend knew I had PTSD and wanted to know how I felt about it. After watching more of the series I felt I needed to revisit the topic in a blog post. First, I believe the topic should be talked about in any medium. Whether it is a TV Show, Book, Movie, or mature Anime. It is important to get the conversation going and raise awareness. It must be addressed in such a way as to educate and not romanticize the topic. These are my opinions on the subject and not how anyone should feel. If these scenes bothered you and you don't think they should have been included, that is your right. You have to do what makes you comfortable. The first time sexual assault came up in SAO was Season 2 Episode 13. Sinon was attacked by her friend and he tried to rape her. The episode gave me pause. At first, I was triggered by the scenario. It really upset me. Here was this already broken character, who had bee

Rehab Diary Day 7: Saturday November 14, 2020 TW:Self Harm, Depression, Anxiety, Suicide

Shouko is my favorite anime movie character. She is so strong. I relate so much to her and Sinon. They have both been through so much and persevered.  I have been enjoying sitting outside on the back porch facing Cases Cove and rocking in the rocking chair while meditating. Today I listened to one of my new favorite songs. Nandemonaiya: song on spotify  ,  lyrics  . I like the English version which is strange because when it comes to anime I prefer Japanese. I really need to get a rocking chair so I can continue meditating and getting sun and fresh air at least once a day. I had nightmares again last night. I don't know if they would have been worse without the Prazosin or if it is helping. I didn't have as much trouble waking up this morning but falling asleep was hard. I was overthinking all day yesterday.  Saw the Dr. this morning. They are going to go up on one of my medicines to help with the depression.  11:00 Smart goals group 4:30pm Process Group
