    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
