Woke up this morning to a "planned" network maintenance by Comcast that went over their maintenance window.

Got a text message that they'll be doing the same maintenance tomorrow.  Why wait until 6am? If you need a 4 hour window why not start at 2am and end at 6am when people are getting up?

Cynical answer, because nighttime costs them more.

Well ya got me there.  More of an idle complaint because I do network maintenances regularly after hours to minimize downtime for customers.

My mental health has been causing me to miss work. I'm booking appointments and all, but I'm still not feeling stellar.

I recall years ago seeing you were into incel/volcel discourse and it really saddened me because you are way too good for that. If you're still into that, I promise that getting away from such toxic, sexist and nonsensical discourse will instantly improve your mood and outcomes.

If there are echoes and vestiges of that discourse or "lifestyle" in your life, such as friends who still call themselves incels, cutting them off or asking them to think differently will likewise probably improve your mood and mindset.

You've always struck me as a very intelligent and independent person and I have faith you can get out of this struggle. Sorry I assume a lot in this post, but as a rule of thumb when it comes to mental health problems, changing your environment and getting away from triggers can help a lot. This applies to drug addiction, depression, etc.

Wise words and I would advise you, MeTek, to do that. Look at the big picture (which we tend do not do) and you will feel better. Meds will never help if you don't see the big picture. Plus it saves you money. That's what I did, looked at the big picture and quit most of the Internet where the toxic people are.

Also, find ways to be mindful.

ETA: Find strategies to be mindful is what I really meant. I gone through this myself and it will just hit you after you start. Just like the Buddha.

Olivia Newton John died! I have been actively avoiding social media so this is old news to everyone else but damn.

Dude. She was a big part of my childhood. My older sister was a Grease fanatic.

Ever had a kitchen that's so small it gives you anxiety? Le sigh. I just want to cook my cajun pasta.

I've had covid for 4 days now. So far it's been OK except for when I fall asleep, waking up 30 minutes later completely drenched in sweat. YUK. I haven't had proper 'rest' in 3 days because of that omicron variant symptom.
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I spoke about my grandmother's passing in therapy and it's becoming clear to me that I'm more upset than I thought I was.

I used to joke that I didn't have a sweet tooth, I had a beer tooth!

Little did I know I just like sugar in processed form.

Sugar is basically everything. Most carbs=sugar. Most food has artificial sugar in the US. Sugar is everywhere. Vegetables sugar, fruits sugar.

It sucks when you've got a glucose affected condition.

I've been blessed with being able to work from home for the past couple years and now things are turning around.  My company wants me to be in office 3 days a week starting next month.

It really is an idle complaint as I know there are many people who have had to go to a place of work the past two years, but I am really not looking forward to commuting and losing hours out of my day again.
