- It’s Perfectly Okay to Not Always be OkayFor as long as I can remember, I have been “okay” according to society’s definition. Yet, I’ve experienced everything from the fear of sleeping as a young child, to the onset of terrifying obsessive thoughts as an adolescent, to the ever-worsening panic attacks and paralyzing anxiety throughout my high school and college years. This all culminated in two debilitating dissociative episodes as an adult. To this day, I have no recollection of two lost weekends – the first in summer 2004 and the second in fall 2007.
- LonelyI’m lonely. I’m in my 40s and really don’t think I have any friends. I have people I hang out with, sure. But if it came balls to the wall, not so sure that anyone would be interested, apart from 1, and even then I’d feel like I was imposing. Not even hubby is interested. I mean he’s great, but introverted. Never had friends growing up (long and involved) and lockdown has done a number on me. I lost my job,I got another but at the fraction of what I was on, so gone from “yeah I’m there, I’m paying” to “sorry I have 30 quid left for the week “.
