Everything Sucks : A Poem

Okay, so it's not really a poem. But here is a list of everything that sucks right now. No particular order of importance. 

Things that are OK.

It seems like you're pretty depressed- badly enough to be having executive function issues. You might want to talk to a doctor about that- antidepressants don't have to be a life sentence (mine will be, but I've never NOT been depressed), loads of people only need a little boost to get over a hump. If you're anti-pharmaceutical help, I know there's loads of people here on FJ who've offered an ear to anyone having a terrible time of it. And strange as it may sound, that may help- sometimes when I'm in a rut, all I really need is someone to present my accomplishments to, like my cat does with dead stuff.

RE weight/exercise: no idea about your gym, so obviously YMMV, but my gym has a couple different levels of spin class and the "fun/beginner" level one is honestly pretty accessible. You'd re-acclimate pretty quickly, it's not like you're an actual beginner, and starting to do something about that might help you feel better about everything else. It's also a fabulous excuse to reach out to people- most people don't see "hey, can I come to spin with you this week" as a burden, so you could start re-establishing old friendships in a low-key way.

That probably all sounds like a tremendous amount of work that's impossible and won't help anyway. But that's sad brain talking. You can't trust sad brain, it's trying to fucking kill you.

Amen!  Good to write it out, huh?  I hope things get better.  Sometimes I turn off the news, in all forms.  I've made a big effort to not read the comments!!!!!   Seriously, WTF is wrong with those people?  I just stopped, I look very rarely.  I take a look at my real life and the real people I interact with and go from that.  So not like the comments section.  Thankfully!

      Well he did court Marjorie before Lauren, he is practically experienced in fundie circles.

      Oh, you're right. Thanks! I forgot that. I don't follow the Duggar sons as much as the daughters.

      Jodi needs to do some serious coaching here if she wants a cut of GaryNBecky's windfall.

      There's an upline on $5 jewelry?? 

      I agree, Becks is better than this. We need to get a hold of her and work on that self esteem! 

      It was hard to watch after a while. Gary is convinced he's going to make it big with this...

      And honestly how many other girls has he been allowed to be around? Other than his siblings or other female relatives, not too many. All those other "NIKE!" girls he's only seen from afar when he happens to go out in public. 

      Well he did court Marjorie before Lauren, he is practically experienced in fundie circles.

      cil turns 32 in July and no news of #4 yet. someone mentioned her wanting 10 kids I honestly don't see that happening with her current pattern I think they will reach maybe 8. 

      I agree although I totally hope not. :562479514c500_32(1):

      Davia looks so much happier sat with Aunt Lydia. Her smile was genuine, not the grimace/smirk she manages when on photos with her parents.

      My family is severely skinny (BMI around 16), the Rod kids look like they weigh even less, that's not genetics.

      I disagree. All the Rod cousins look the same ‘slimness’ to me. I’ve never really been on board with the idea that Jill’s kids are starved. I do think it is genetics. JMO, as always.
