Weekly Log #84: Psychotic, But Only A Little

My weekly ritual for looking at the week that was.

Ever so slightly late log (ha!) and ever so slightly psychotic.
Logging time.

  • Did you know that psychosis can be triggered by severe depression? I had no idea, I *just* found out. Now, to be absolutely clear, I haven’t gone “psychotic” per se. Last Saturday I experienced an extreme and as-yet-unknown form of meltdown, that consisted of violent crying, yelling and vocalising without words, and swearing at the Universe for being an arsehole. I was aware of what I was doing, I was making a conscious choice to let myself feel whatever it was I felt, and to express whatever needed to be expressed. After all, who knows if I wasn’t letting go of something that has been trapped since I was a toddler, which is why I was acting like one? I spent a few hours in this state, and then I went to sleep. In the morning, it lingered for a while, but by the evening I was feeling better. A breath for this experience, for expressing pain on a whole new level.
  • Still sad about [Experience]. Yes, still! It’s been a whole month, which means I have survived a whole month, and so I get all the Sparklepoints. One whole month of daily crying. A breath for feelings being what they are.
  • News on [project], but it’s confusing and I’m less than thrilled. A breath for the thing you wanted not being what you expected.
  • Still very much in the “Space Between Stories”. I don’t know how to “be” anymore. I am not interested in anything life has to offer, I have no “appetite” for life. And just in time, I am experiencing digestive issues, because it’s all related. I have no appetite for food or life. Yay. Not actually yay. A breath for life being endlessly challenging.
  • Hanging out with friends. I am grateful for friends, of course, but social interaction brings up a whole host of challenges, and just… argh. A breath for this.

Moments of Insight NOPE, not this week, no major insights to report

Things of Considerable Worth (Un-missables!)

Divider

Another difficult week.
I don’t really have anything else to say, I can’t even pray right now for things to get better, since I don’t inhabit the “space” of “hope” that things could ever get better.
I’m going to ask for Light, and leave it at that.

Let the Light Reach You

The challenge facing us right now is this: we must find a way to keep going while we hold the suspicion that everything in our lives will get worse.
We must practice finding the light inside us.

Mental Health for Political Activists

In this workshop I explain how the world of “politics” and the world of “self-healing” clash because they have different narratives. The way to resolve this is to separate between the “personal” and the “political”.
