How do you feel today?

Forget about mental illness for a while and just let loose in here.

I feel like a sensitive snowflake today. I went outside the comfort zone & was anxious the whole time, but I successfully got the oil changed on my car. Yay.

Then at lunch my family member starts in on their usual political bs :evil: I lost it a little & started crying. :cry: I told them I’m sick of them shoving their political & religious views down my throat.

I told them I’m never going to be a member of their political party or their religion. They didn’t like that. I told them I fully support them having their own beliefs, but they’re not my beliefs.

I told them I fully realize I’m emotionally unwell, & that if I were emotionally well, I would probably be able to engage in logical philosophical conversation about these topics BUT I JUST NEED A BREAK. :cry:

Then I left the room. I hate them. I hate myself. I hate everyone else (except you guys, of course :) ). Maybe I’ll feel better tomorrow, but life isn’t about feeling good. It’s about getting through the day.

I know we’re spending way too much time together. I usually watch an hour or two of tv with them most evenings, but maybe I’ll start a new routine & go to my dungeon & do tai chi instead?

Was their political aimed at you in particular? Or just venting in general (but you've heard all you can take of it)

Some people simply do not live and breathe politics.

Those of us who do, think those who don't, are... uninformed?

Well, it might induce some people to 'try harder'

My sympathies.

Not sure it will get better, the polarization seen, isn't going anywhere.

Might wind up having to hibernate a bit, and when they ask why, guess they'll just have to be reminded that you don't wanna hear it.

Hugs.

^Their political was general venting *mod edit*. I’m done. They listen to political radio of their political party 24/7/365 at ear splitting volumes in the common area of their house. I’m just a financial leach. :twisted: I’m sure I’m not as informed as I could be. Unfortunately, we can’t all be perfect like them. :P Thoughts & prayers! :lol:

Mmmm my partner likes to play television at loud volumes. It can get.. wearying.

Plus, even though I used to work in a very noisy environment, sometimes the talking gets to making me feel overwhelmed. Occasionally we get overstimulated in an almost ASD kind of way.

If it's something that goes particularly against your grain, I can understand your desire to escape it a while.

Well I was almost moved to tears earlier on today when my offspring read out the recommendation that was made by their university lecturers so they can progress to PhD level.

It's a lot for me to take in that I gave birth to someone who is having such a positive impact on the world.

And me being such a $#%^ as well.
