    I used to find Lisa annoying in The Simpsons, but now she is probably my favourite.

    Disclaimer:
    I do not watch any episode after season 14-15.

    Honestly, I have never thought The Simpson's were funny.

    Why must self care be so difficult some days? Bleh.
    Maybe it shouldn’t be. I feel that self care should mean that we feel good because we’re doing the right things for ourselves. But it’s not easy to truly know what the right thing is

    It is difficult when you have clinical depression and anxiety issues that keep you from functioning like a "normal" person. You know what you should do, but you find it incredibly hard to get there.. or to take care of things. It sucks. :(

    I have a coworker who signs up for a lot of overtime shifts and then tries to give them away, often the day of. I think she does it so that, when supervisors walk around trying to get volunteers for the coming week, she can proudly say "I've already signed up!" and then not have to actually work it. It started getting on my nerves about the tenth time.

    Also I heard Maneater was a pretty good game.

    Honestly, yeah. The anxiety is worse than the depressive states (for me). Mainly because I have no control over the heart-wrenching feelings that anxiety induces and it's hard to "calm down" from one of those episodes. Depression I can usually (not always) work through... but the anxiety.. the only way that dies down or goes away is with medication. :neutral:

    Anxiety is the worst! I find that it creeps in more the older I get. Self care is important, but so much work when you can’t shut your brain off.

    Yep. Especially when you want to sleep and that "fight or flight" reaction kicks in. It sucks.

    I put on a movie on Netflix and 10 minutes in I felt like I was watching a soft porn so I had to double check I was still on Netflix 🤣

    I asked a question to someone at work (through linkedin), just askin how they're getting on. They didn't write back, and I think that's not kind.
    I wonder what that person is thinking... maybe "Let's ignore him like he's an object".
    Sorry but your loss, I will just ignore you without even getting moody

    I totally ignore linked in now. It lost is value IMO because its just recruitment spam for crap jobs. Maybe it just my field, or maybe everyone thinks this about it?
