So, I didn’t realize we were doing an intro post all anxiety-anonymous-like to start this off, because must we?
<if we were to be realistic, there would be a break here wherein I was distracted by some memes I found for around a half hour>
So, I have a buffet-style spread of mental illnesses. I had to type it like that because it makes me feel all cringy. I spend a good portion of my time convincing myself that this is all temporary.
I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, which I have always thought was ironically only one letter away from being a GLAD acronym. I have the form of OCD that manifests itself in disruptive thoughts. Disruptive is actually a misnomer, in this instance, as it is in no way fully representative of the horror show my head turns into, at times.
<I just did a quick google to make sure I was using “misnomer” correctly, and the example said that the King Crab wasn’t even a crustacean, so now, I have to find out what that is all about.>
<okay, they’re totally crustaceans. someone must have made a rogue entry.>
I also have Seasonal Affective Disorder so Irene gave me a light mask to try to help me be less “bitey” during gloomy, cold, wet, miserable weather streaks.
We’ll stop there, for now. While lists are fun, they’re way more fun when they’re positive. Or just logical. They need to make an adult coloring book of illustrated lists. <it just took me 15 minutes to remember that the word I was looking for was “illustrated”. I hate it when that happens.> Maybe I’ll make that coloring book. That’s another idea for the shelf.
It’s past my bedtime. Good night. – S.L.
