  1. I feel like there's a challenge theme in this statement. There's a lot to be said for an adventuring party being properly equipped before heading into the wilderness.
  2. Ah, the mid-challenge slump. What fun. Baring my soul has its own complications. Talking openly about what I wrestle with sent me spiraling pretty badly. Two weeks ago, I did not go to class at all. I told myself it was because I was tired and had other things to do, but the truth of the matter is that I wanted to curl up in a ball and forget the world. That's just not good for me. Last week, I forced myself out of the house and got to class both times I intended to. Miraculously, my mood improved. Hapkido truly is a major component of my mental health landscape. Plus, s
  3. I genuinely don't know what to do with all this. This is why I broke down and took the better part of two weeks to recover from Camp Nerd Fitness. It takes a lot of effort for me to process, well, other people caring. Went to bed on time last night. I didn't make it to class, but that's because I had an appointment with a framer to have the custom jersey I had made for my supervisor who retired at the start of the year mounted. I was there for an hour and a half, going over details that are confusing to me (I do not art), but in the end, put together something that I'm very hap
  4. Stahp. I'm too emotionally fragile to deal with people caring... In seriousness, though, I do appreciate it. I've got a couple of people that do check in on me for these and other reasons. While I can't say I'm "okay" by any normal definition, I am stable right now. I have a few things in the pipeline that will help my health. Being accountable here is definitely one of them. It is easier to face the demons when I have feedback lit up in neon saying things like, "You're not as horrible as you think you are!"
  5. Okay. I have been putting this off, because it still scares the shit out of me to this day. I suffer from PTSD, mild to moderate anxiety, and severe depression, with suicidal tendencies. In 2002, I ate an entire bottle of Tylenol 3. That bottle was expired. In 2016, I had a plan to take my life after my cross-country road trip. That was the year I went to Camp Nerd Fitness. In 2018, I sat down and decided that best thing I could do for myself was to drive my car into a light pole. A close friend called me while I was sitting there thinking about how to do it. Obv
  6. And why would you want the character name spelled correctly? Madness...
  7. The key to dating as you approach 40 (I know you're not there yet, but you're getting there) is shared interests. Having a social connection is the first thing for introverts like us. It takes time, but connections follow.
  8. Now, this whole week 2 thing. Sunday night, I had a migraine that kept me up until 4 am. Contrary to my impulses, I stayed home from work and let my body recover. I did follow that up with being tucked in and ready for sleep by 9, which I am happy about.
  9. Okay, late week 1 recap. I missed only a single night getting to bed on time. I call that a win. I went to both classes I intended to. Saturday was all sword sparring in full armour, which is super fun. I have talked here about things that very, very few people know about and that I downplay and push away at all other times. Week 1 summary: Good start!
  10. It was all technique and flow work. There's a lot of syncopation in the rhythm of our attacks, so building the patterns is important before trying to apply them.
  11. No post last night because I crashed super hard. I went in to class and, to my surprise, we got to play with knives. My master has been focusing hard on sword training for the past couple of weeks, so it was fun to take out the smaller blades and work through the applications of motion. Sleep was better than the previous night. No acid reflux. Turned the lights out at 9:58 because I am trying to do too much, but still got to sleep. Now my work day is starting and I need to do my rounds.
  12. Things that frustrate me: Getting to bed according to my schedule and then waking up an hour later with an acid reflux attack that keeps me awake for the next four hours. Fun stuff.
  13. KOOOOOOOOOO!!! *cue high-pitched squealing*
  14. I didn't update last night because @Shogun messaged me as I was getting into bed to harass me that it was time to go to sleep. I'm generally terrible at responding to people directly in my threads, so if you haven't seen me in a while, just know that I do read everything and I appreciate it. I'm not @Starpuck with the capacity to keep track of quote trains longer than she is tall. *** So, back to the venting. My home life was basically garbage and I had one refuge, which as a nerdy, introverted kid, was obviously going to be school. Fun fact, though. Kid
