Re: TW: Permanent scars, not taking care of my health, losing emotions, and I just can't be okay rn.

Thank you @Tiny_leaf, but I don't think that's an option tonight.
I have to go to bed, before I make myself worse tomorrow.

But I think I will at some point tomorrow. Tetris is a fun game.

Goodnight @Tiny_leaf. Thank you for the suggestion. I promise I'll be feeling better by tomorrow.

@xXLexi_Lou122Xx it is, I'm a little too obsessed with it Smiley Tongue

Good night, I hope you sleep well!

Re: TW: Permanent scars, not taking care of my health, losing emotions, and I just can't be okay rn.

Hey @xXLexi_Lou122Xx , I'm sorry you had a crappy day yesterday. Being in physical pain can take a toll on our positivity and can really knock us around. I know when I'm feeling sick my mental health can drop really quickly, so I make sure I take extra special self-care to combat this. 

 

I'm wondering what you do for self-care? The best way that it was explained to me is that self-care isn't a luxury, it's something that you need to do every single day to just get to the baseline of health. It's as important as breathing for our survival. Sounds like you might need to be extra sure to take care of yourself today, and show yourself some love.

Hi @xXLexi_Lou122Xx 

 

Sorry I was confused before about you not attending the same school. I am glad your knee is feeling better, I have had a few injuries through soccer and I know how hard that can be. I am really sorry to hear about how unwell you were the other day.

 

How are you feeling now ? 

 

Also I love Tetris too or Jenga, helps distract me when things feel overwhelming or I can't stop thinking about something.

Hey @MisoBear, @Claire-RO.

Yes, I have been playing some video games, but I forgot about Tetris! :/

Some of my favourite self-care activities are:
Watching blackhead removals
Playing video games
Reading
Playing forum games
and just supporting other users here!

I guess I don't really need to do self-care atm, but I need to tale care of my health. I don't know why, but I've had diarrhea all day. I haven't toldmy mum, because I'm not worried. It's probably just either a small virus, or something I get after I've over-exhausted myself.

But the cramps and pain in my back and sides is what's making me feel sad.
I'm okay, but physically in pain is not fun. Everyone knows that. I haven't been eating much either. But then again, I have been a bit unwell today, overall.

Honestly, I just want to cry. I'm in pain, and wanting this soreness to go away. And the possible virus I have just captured. Which is funny, because I used hand sanitiser and washed my hands all week this week, before eating and every other required time. Hmm...

That's okay Claire. We all misinterpret things at some point.

And that same event yesterday is still replaying, but I'm not focussed much on it. I'm in too much pain to worry about it now.

Right now, I'm going to cut my toenails and fingernails, and plait my hair comfortably for tonight. I figured out a new way to make my head feel nice when I'm doing it, which is an up side.

Thank you for being here guys. I'm glad that at least some people are able to give advice and support me. Not many people have been on my thread at all last week and before then... But It's fine now!

Re: TW: Permanent scars, not taking care of my health, losing emotions, and I just can't be okay rn.

@xXLexi_Lou122Xx sorry to hear you have been feeling unwell. I hope you feel better soon. Take it easy, feeling unwell does wear you physically and mentally. Braiding hair sounds nice. I haven't braided me hair for so long. Make sure you get lots of rest and fluids.

How are you feeling now?

Re: TW: Permanent scars, not taking care of my health, losing emotions, and I just can't be okay rn.

Thank you @Beautifullybroken.

I'm feeling terrible, as I haven't gone to bed yet. But I hope I feel better tomorrow. My body isn't likely to stop hurting for a while though...
When I was at The S.H.A.C.K. , the first aid officer was a trained nurse. When she asked if I was okay, when I was sitting down on a chair with my head on the sign in table, I told her that my sides and body were really sore. She said that I probably pulled a muscle, but I don't think that's the case. Either that, or I've caught a flu or something. Because it's like an achey pain, but also like I've pulled something. I'm not sick either. Well, you know.

I can't braid my hair. I can plait, but Braiding is a different story. Do you know how to braid?
I've tried, but that was when no one taught me. My mum will teach me some time.

I still feel like crying, but it's not that bad anymore. I guess I'm just over-exhausted and tired. That's probably what's making me feel like crying. And that's okay. It was my first time taking on a leadership role, and I was still finding my feet. But then again, it was a very energetic camp, and all the leaders were tired out as soon as the kids left.

I still feel dizzy like I did yesterday, but I'm about to head to bed after my family finishes their scrabble game. I'm in my room, on RO, while they're in the dining room playing. I'm glad I can have some me time.

I did some drawing today, I'll try and post it tomorrow. And I'll post it on the art thread that I didn't know we had!

Yes, I've been having lot's of fluids and a restful day today. Games and quiet time all day! Just what I needed after a week of trouble. Smiley Happy

Re: TW: Permanent scars, not taking care of my health, losing emotions, and I just can't be okay rn.

Hey @MisoBear.
Yes, I'm feeling much better!
I think it only a one day thing. It went away after my shower on Saturday night. Obviously I showered last night, but that's general hygiene. Smiley Tongue

I am still really sore on my sides and back, but I hope that will disappear soon.
I have also just gotten a mild headache, but that's normal.

Re: TW: Permanent scars, not taking care of my health, losing emotions, and I just can't be okay rn.

@xXLexi_Lou122Xx ouch... that must've been horrible..

 

Is it possible you used your core muscles a bit more than normal on the camp? I've done that in horse riding - it's not fun for the next day or two....

I'm glad you've been feeling a bit better though. Smiley Happy

 

How're you going atm?
