Re: Just need to vent
I know how you feel. I can get all bent out of shape when I've got to work a lot on the conditions I have.
I've found it helpful to try my best not to let them be in the forefront of my mind. It takes effort and has taken time to do that. But I don't want to live just as someone with a mental illness, so I do as many other things in my life as I can and focus on them, do what I can about the illnesses, and just go on determined to live as "normally" as I can.
Sometimes it works, sometimes not. You can take that day for yourself. Put it all aside for a while, at least a few hours, and focus on something else.
Easier said than done, I know. This is something that's worked for me, though.
P.S. Please forgive me if I was wrong in posting this. Maybe you just wanted to vent and didn't want feedback of this sort.
