I'm in the waiting room at my psych's office for a walk in. My anxiety has been messing with work. I need to address it. I left work early today and I've called in so many times and my boss said it's getting to be a problem and she's right and I don't wanna get fired. I feel like I have heartburn or something and I'm exhausted from the breakdown I had after clocking out. Everything is just bleh.

She pointed out a hidden message in which she had asked me to be her official girlfriend. I accepted. A few minutes later, she changed her mind because long distance scares her.

I think I’ll never be in a shorter relationship.

Wow. That was a real jerkish thing for her to do. :x

Sorry that happened, Lia. You deserve much better.

She said pretty much the same things about it.

It’s a super shitty mistake. She needs to learn about herself so she can avoid this kind of thing by thinking ahead. She will/should be in therapy soon.

Before this fiasco, the plan was to discuss the possibility of being “official” girlfriends after spending some time together in real life, and she has always been one of the most considerate and caring people I know. We’re working on going back to how things were, including having that plan.

"I ain't ded"....to quote Terry Pratchett.

That actually hurt more than I expected.

Okay...news...I'm not adjusting to being out of school very well. My celiacs is now scaring me due to how much it damages things inside.

Last year, I got a really shitty ASD screening by someone who admitted the criterion he used was out of date. He came back with a bunch of gobbledygook. I finally found someone who specializes in ASD and can now relay that it is officially diagnosed.

On a side note, I've been working on more stories.

Definitely. I didn't realize just how nice it is to talk to someone offline who understands ASD. The guy who did the screening didn't think I had ASD because I didn't stim in front of him and talked about cooking in addition to my obsession about stories. Men scare me, so I tend to hide my stim behaviors around them far more than around women, and my love of cooking isn't an obsession...it just feeds my interest in stories since it tells us so much about cultures.

My new therapist is wonderful and understands all of this, which has been a huge help :)

I went to the ER this morning because I had very extremely high blood pressure. They kept me there for a while. Chest x-rays and blood work and EKG and urine test. I was sent home with a prescription for a beta blocker. The stupidest part is being told to read their papers on hypertension. I knew all the information which is why I knew to mention the scary symptoms of high blood pressure. At least the beta blocker should help with what I think is wrong.

I hope you are feeling better, Val...and I feel confused, but that's normal.
