i have had wicked dreams the last few weeks or so. i don't sleep for more than a few hours a night (but holy poo poo is napping during the daytime as easy as ur mom). summer time is rough for me because it was when a bunch of people got dusted in afghanistan. i also stopped smoking weed because i was getting tight in my chest so that might have something to do with it. but yeah summer and the very beginning/end of the year are always anxious/stressful/depressed times for me regardless of what is going on in my life, moreso than normal.

I've been more angry and sad than usual recently. I think it had alot to do with these recent news cycles and a sort of generaized nihilism I've been seeing Cascade through my friends and relatives. Working more on being upbeat and making reasons to feel happy and optimistic though

Hey guys has anyone (still in even) had a ton of anxiety lately?

I've been having non stop stress dreams the last 5 days. I haven't been taking on more news than normal, I've even dialed it back, I'm not going through a lot of stressful poo poo. I work out, and have been eating healthy.


Just the last week, I'm going to bed and fighting through hours of being late to formation with a beard and in civies, and someone reminding me I smoked pot in the dream (I don't smoke IRL and I'm active guard), deploying to somewhere to fight in a trench, and this kind of poo poo goes for hours and I wake up exhausted.

I've been freaked out by now persistent it is and I'm trying every relaxation technique I know, but the stress is starting to creep into my waking life.

I had wicked anxiety during the last couple of months.

also for slack users, my invites have been slow but I would also suggest you guys ask for a GIP discord invite since that is way more active than the slack channel.

STOMPIN' ON INTO THE POWER LINES

Exciting Lemon

I've been a poor slack user because I don't have the GiP slack on my phone and I'm away from home most of the time. I also feel like a dick because I've taken suicide watch calls before and felt the exhaustion the next morning, where I have to yell at myself saying what if next time it's your drunken rear end feeling reality set in and fffffffffffff

Seriously like many goons here I've had too many friends. Message me if you need something. I loving suck at making noble statements but I drove all the way to my best friends and clocked him in the face at 4am because I'm selfish and don't want to have to go to any more funerals.

In other news my grandmother died and I feel like poo poo because at 92 she was still spry as a fox and just dropped after a solid dance at the national home. My mom and my aunt managed to get a fairly in depth taped account of all the poo poo she went through a hear or two ago. I almost feel like the only way to do justice to her life is to write a book about her hopping the wall from East Germany with my infant mom and aunt, but I'm heasitant to even think about it because it's a story of surviving the fire bombing of Dresden and other horrible events that make me hate long dead nazis.

And in retrospect my initial reaction to delete this post in antipathy to the point of this thread and posting from the heart. Typing out words that you're feeling hurts. So get it off your chest

I had about a week at the beginning of the month where even my Ativan script didn't help.

Its been a bad month for a couple friends too, and I probably won't make it through July with out getting that 3 am phone call. Unless its me they are calling each other about. Which frankly, wouldn't be too bad of an option.

Today's my wife's birthday. I'm going to be visiting her gravesite with flowers and a small bottle of mead that I made. She really liked it last time I made it.

It's been a rough 20 months, but I'm getting through it. The first six or so were probably the worst.

I mean universe wise I guess. Of all people to burden these, why pick you? Destiny or dogma, I don't know. I wish there were words to describe it. It's not fair how someone at random sometimes gets dealt blows like this over and over.

I'm sorry about all of this man.

Yeah, no, you're right. It wasn't a good joke.

But seriously, though, I think I had eighteen simultaneous reactions to your post and most of them require knowledge I didn't share. My friend was a civilian, never served. Also I misread it at first and took "suicide training" to mean "training on how to commit suicide."

I have the know-how, ability, and experience to do a documentary thing. I'd be willing to do it free schedule permitting and finances pending. (Not for me or whatever. I'm talking about travel and stuff). That offer is for you McNally and I'll PM you my work if you're interested. I'd post it here but 1) my name is on it because I sign off, and 2) I've been doxxed twice here already and I'm not wanting 3.

I had a real elaborate one about hubris and his gigantic penis offending Yahweh, who is a jealous God, a quote from Numbers with cubits, and then I thought well that's a bad idea.

Sorry McNally. Hang in.
