Less somehow. Got a bit more stability over the last couple months despite some substantial losses. You?

I feel like I do, but by extension of everyone around me. Partner is having a rough go of it...as are a lot of folks I organize with.

That sucks! I hope it eases off in the ways that it can soon.

Reminds me that I have to check in with some people about how they're doing.

More, because of money issues. I have trouble budgeting anything cause I'm very impulsive. Not working much while in school has finally been catching up with me.

I feel the same, for money issues too. Except I'm very careful with money but the issues that people around me caught up to them and sucked me in on the trap of debt.

Ah, I feel that. I was there too a decade ago or so. What are your impulse purchases of choice? Back then, it was pc hardware for me. I used to build pc's and just give em away for no real reason.

The only impulsive thing like that is usually books, or sometimes something random like a video game, but I can keep that under control when I need to. What I have issues with is like drugs, booze, and food, as that's like my go-to coping mechanism for stress, anxiety, etc. When I have a full time job it's fine as I don't have expensive tastes or a serious habit, but now that I'm on a real low budget it's a problem.

Ah yeah...consumption aint cheap. Perhaps u can steal some food from your campus to make it a little easier?

Well you can steal, and also find a way to make money out of wealthier people.

Much less, ever since 2016 my life has been going steadily better so even with huge setbacks or frustrations I keep the long term cool sunglasses perspective

Way less, mostly has to do with just growing up ig

I feel like my general stress/anxiety over time has fluxed and flowed. Idk if getting older in general has worked much for me. Kinda situation dependent i think.

A little more but I think it started from 2019 because of some circumstances and some rather disturbing thoughts/urges I might have.

Disturbing like actually fucking a copyright? JK. I dont even know what that could mean. I hope your situation improves, and fast.

It’s either I’m too depressed to get anything done or I’m too anxious to get anything done. When it’s both, I’m even less fuctional. Recently though?

Depression>Anxiety. That’s probably why I’m less anxious.

existential1 OP wrote

That's quite the loop. My partner is like that a lot actually. Do you have anyone or any system that can help you break the cycle?

Stuckinthecity wrote

Yes and no? It’s really diffcult trying new stuff or enjoying old pleasures with opposing forces constantly fluctuating in your head.

I have recently enjoyed casually(?) singing to myself though. It really cheers me up more than I expected, since I’m not the best speaker. So it’s far from impossible to solve.

existential1 OP wrote

Yeah. Sometimes I try to have my partner do thought experiments using the same language their using except flipped to a positive conclusion. It works like 3/5 times. I keep trying to add stuff to my toolkit to help that works for particular situations.

Maybe I'll try your singing thing. Sounds like it could be fun and could break things up a bit.

Worse. Sleep is still a constant battle which sets up a wicked feedback loop: I need to sleep, worry about sleep, prophecy fulfilled I can't sleep.

existential1 OP wrote

Way out question, but have you tried shrooms? I feel like I lost a lot of anxiety about things after doing shrooms.
