    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    what's going on now

    This is so me all the time. It feels like people are constantly either telling me to calm down or that I'm cold and don't *act right* whatever that means...

    It's just so, that I feel so much all the time, so yes I tend to get really mad too often, I tend to get way too sad over things that probably don't matter much to other people, and when confronted with conflict or things that according to other people *should* cause me to react in certain ways I often don't react at all at the time because I think I'm preparing to fight or figure out how to handle it and don't really react to it or process it until much later when I'm alone and safe.

    I don't know what's going on now, but I've been in a weird, almost flat mood for a while and now this past week or so feel just sad all the time. Like, I'm seriously just sitting here, nothing's going on but I've got a heavy heart, am all choked up with tears wanting to fall, but WHY?
    I find myself not wanting to do anything at all really.
    So I thought maybe I do need to get out of the house & was trying to see if someone would want to go have breakfast or lunch or coffee tomorrow or friday but i got no response from anywhere near, of course kitty and a couple other of my far-away buds said they would and that's awesome because I really wish we could.
    So...idk...I wonder what's going on this weekend, someone must have told me but I honestly don't remember at all, that's another thing, my mind is seriously slipping as in my short-term memory is shot, it takes me all day and sometimes not even then to complete things because I forget what I'm doing or even that I'm doing anything at all, I have notes and reminders and alarms set up everywhere but I still forget as soon as I look away from them it seems.

    Matter of fact I just realized what I came in my room for, I've been on the computer because I couldn't remember why I came upstairs, it was to off to do that before I forget again.
    When nothing's going right, go left!

    hugs. i do that all the time, go somewhere to do something and by the time i get there totally forget what i was doing. retracing my steps helps me to remember. lol
    skypper replied to slik_kitty's response:
    You're right that does help sometimes, my brain has abandoned me I think
