Tode’s Weekly Assessment 2020-26

Slight emotional hiccup towards the end of the week, but I’m happy to say that not only was I able to pull out of my spiral relatively quickly compared to the past, I was also able to discuss it and brainstorm calmly with my partner afterwards. It feels good to know I’m able to put the coping skills I’ve been learning into practical use and to see my partner support this. Other than that, this week has been pretty tame.

The only thing I think I need to step up with is remembering to take my meds every time. I know a big culprit in that is our daily routine has been changed so much thanks to this Covid-19 thing, but I feel like I should be doing better on staying on top of it. I think my ability to cope and self-regulate would be stronger if I was on top of it.

  • zoned out

Notes

  • found out I could play a mobile Final Fantasy game on my tablet
    • originally downloaded it for Little Bear, but ended up spending the day playing it myself too
  • Therapy Tuesday
    • talked in length trying to figure out why it feels icky for me to compete for time and attention – like why does that bother me?
    • is this an ego thing, or a wounded child issue, or what exactly?
    • why do I feel like I need permission to even walk away from it?
  • Golden Knight came over for dinner and watched a few more episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist
    • and even though he had promised the night before to focus only on me in conversation, I couldn’t bring myself to talk about anything
      • mostly I guess because he complained so much about how tired he was and how little time he had
        • so I didn’t want to impose and I was worried that if I did I would be rejected

Today’s Feelings

  • wrecked

Notes

  • spiraled out from last night’s conversation with Golden Knight
    • it’s times like these that I feel not just broken, but like I am toxic
      • seriously, I find myself questioning my behavior and intentions
        • like… wtf am I doing, and why?
        • is what I’m doing helping or harming the situation?
        • am I thinking things through or am I being reactionary?
    • I’m glad at least we worked it out and agreed on a few things regarding the importance of acknowledging each other and compromising on meeting needs
      • two things we talked about and agreed on:
        • a need for a weekly date night
        • a need for “me time”
          • yes, it was brought up in context of himself but as we were discussing it, but I’ve realized this is something I’ve been neglecting for myself too
            • this is something we need to start actively supporting and doing for each other rather than just in word alone
  • spent a good part of the time when I wasn’t napping tinkering with my new datapack project, which of course caught Little Bear’s interest
