How Are You Today?

Choose one word to describe how you are feeling today.
Then add one brief sentence to explain why.

I think it's helpful for people with Alexithymia to identify emotions and consider the reason behind them.


My answer for today:

Guilty
I'm going to be away overnight, and I'm anxious about MD's health because she's sick and might want me home.

    Somewhat over being a procrastinator.

    Took a 30 min taxi ride and forgot to open the windows and ventilate to prevent spread of Corona. Both I and the driver had masks on but I am usually so careful. Just forgot.Frack.

    Loved.

    Our black and white cat just sat on my lap for a minute.

    Good.

    No anxiety today. Yesterday I had a pretty bad attack.

    Isn't MiniFerret a great great grandson? (two times great?)

    That must be a tough decision. Is your granddad suffering with any type of infection, or just declining from age? Is he in a care home?

    I'm picturing MiniFerret telling the story one day, saying that he met / didn't meet his 2x great grandfather when he was a baby, during Covid. I hope you'll find a way for them to meet and be photographed together even with masks in the photo (would make for an interesting keepsake), but I understand how upsetting it must be if they can't. I know you have to worry about lockdown rules in addition to everyone's health.

    Yeah my bad he's his great great grandfather doh!

    No infection as such just age.

    planning a garden visit soon but it looks like the UK might have a 'circuit breaker' lockdown :(

  • What the heck is a circuit breaker lockdown?

  • My gamer-brain suggests it's something that goes into effect automatically once another value reaches a specific point. Could be wrong, though.

    Like @Wolfram said ,currently there are 3 alert levels , when level 3 is reached it will be introduced. . A circuit breaker is a national lockdown set for short-term period of two or three weeks, where tighter restrictions are brought in.

    Ah yes. We have levels as well. Highest numbers ever right now. I'm really not impressed with my need to go to hospitals almost every day. I think I'll buy me a hazmat suit. Maybe do that garden photo asap while you can.

    Today:

    Raunchy
    I feel a bit queasy for some reason.

  • Save_FerrisSave_Ferris Citizen, Member

    Well Wales has just banned anyone from a hotspot area coming into the country ( which is pretty much everywhere but Cornwall ).

  • Peaceful

    It's a perfectly dark, wet, dreary, spooky day and I have absolutely nothing to do.

  • Save_FerrisSave_Ferris Citizen, Member

    Frazzled

    GGGrandfather has met the miniferret so mission acomplished.

  • YAAYYYYYYYYYY !!!!!!!

    Congrats !!! I'm glad you got to see your granddad as well !!!!!

  • Happy

    Because the miniferr met his GG grandfather.

  • Haven't been feeling so good the past couple of days. Keeps coming and going. Feel awful, feel alright, feel awful, repeat. Some gastric thing? IDK.

    A fesh/raw ginger hot drink could help to settle your insides.

  • AmityAmity Administrator, Citizen

    Feeling better, lockdown happened, imo a week too late, but at least there is some certainty now...
    instead of the horrid waiting for change and all the uncertainty before now.

    Hugs Amity, hope everything will start to feel more settled now.

    WN -- Doctor is in order. No messing around with our WN.

  • Concerned.
    I just watched cat videos for the first time, meaning I must be going mad?

  • TemTem Citizen

    Content.
    Just saw a few people outside as they passed by my house. I was chatting to a neighbourn 2 doors away(jumped out on her) and the others just walked by and smiled their greetings. Also, not seen this particular neighbour for months so it was good to see she was ok.

  • Anxious
    I can feel my tension building because I have to take my mother to physio again, which means sensory and emotional draining, plus a couple of hours of Covid exposure in the hospital.

    It's over with now. Just part of the occasional weird panic attack scenarios I experience. Always a combo of rapid heartbeats and gastric upheavals from nervousness. Tonight I feel serene and my pulse rate is 68.
