Mental Health Journal: December 29th

Holidays are challenging for everybody. Not just those of us with mental health issues. At the end of the day, it’s how we get through it all. Once upon a time, I really enjoyed the holidays very much. I got to see all my family. We played games. There were traditions we upheld. I lost half of my family when I turned eighteen. I won’t get into that. All I’ll say is once I turned eighteen, I just didn’t matter to them anymore. They half-heartedly tried to keep up, but eventually just gave up. On the side of the family that I did see still, most of them have passed away. Especially the backbone of the family. Those of us left, barely have anything to do with the main family. We kind of stick to our intermediate families.

On top of all of that, I also lost my job. I don’t really want to get into the specifics. I fully take the blame. I’m proud that I did the right thing though. The stress of trying to figure out what I’m going to do from here is slowly getting to me. I’m trying to keep positive though. Maybe I’ll even land a work-from-home job that will get me out of call center work altogether. However, I’ll be okay getting another call center job.

Good things from this week:

  1. I got to spend time with my family.
  2. I’ve been getting into a very nice routine.
  3. I’ve managed to read. Including a nice reading session with mom.
  4. Being able to do nice things for my loved ones.

Bad things from this week:

  1. Missing loved ones that are no longer with us.
  2. Losing my Job.
  3. Household getting sick in stages
  4. Battling depression
