A little rain, a little snow, and everyone is driving like a timid, shaking little leaf.

Have a reason, have a purpose, put down that damned phone, kick up the jams, and keep the revs high...so you can scoot your booty!

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

I was actually getting some work done (it's strangely calm, as my boss has mostly been in meetings all day) - and the fire alarm goes off!

So, everyone milling around outside on the sidewalk. Nothing like a little unexpected mid-afternoon small talk

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

I just counted how many logins I have at work for various accounts and whatnot.

153

I can’t handle it any longer, so I am moving to using a password manager.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

so I went through two days of brotherly hell, re-set, nothing the same, absolute heart attack feeling annoyance to find out I don't need a new battery, I can just keep it plugged in while he snorted, grumbled, and sounded like it was The End Of The World and mean.


Why do I even ask him?

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

Was having a great afternoon with fellows at King's day, but then they decided to go to a party pub in a very busy street. Too much external stimuli, which led to me being oberstimulated quickly. Got myself out of the situation and left for home. I'm happy I allowed myself to get out of the situation. Now I feel tired and melancholic. But I can have more compassion with myself than I did before. I don't have to be someone that I'm not and be in situations that are unhealthy for me. To be able to see that is growth.

Yes. I'm snickering here.

I have begun the Priming for my appt. But then, I still have to make another one to wig out over for the next 4 or 5 months. And what the hell IS that all about anyway?


It is cold pouring rain and the moment it gets a drop in temperature It Begins.

This is going to be the mother of all storms.
There's even a blizzard predicted for the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles.
Not completely unknown, but certainly unexpected at the end of April.
Meanwhile I flip the switch from furnace to AC so often I'm suprised it
hasn't worn out or broken ... *knock wood*.

When the weather gets crappy I get careful, not timid. Around here, wet stuff
can become ice on the roadway very quickly.

Hope it was a false alarm. Was it?

No one will be able to resume after that. I know I couldn't.

I appreciate careful, and respect your choice. And for sure, when it hailed in Oklahoma, it was serious business.

37 in a 55 whilst on Facebook and drifting in lanes is not what I consider careful.


Respect,
Ian

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

To be honest the old fear is still there. Am I attractive enough? Will I find a woman that I find attractive and who I can enter a healthy relationship with? A fear that has driven me for the biggest part of my life. The feeling of being unattractive and not being able to find the person I want to be with and who is healthy to be with. But at least I start to accept that even being single forever, would be preferable to going back to the ways of the past in which I would settle for girls who I either wasn't even remotely attracted to, who were very unhealthy for me, or both.
