Diamond prices jumped ~4% in January and February, probably due in part to Russia related craziness. But, I managed to snag this at a not too crazy price :))

Planning started for next month--wish me (advanced) luck!

My parents are the best and love them to death. But they’re super emotional and always make me feel like I don’t see them enough. Before covid I used to see them almost every other month. During covid I stayed home for a two month stretch and am now back for a few weeks six months later. Leaves me antsy as I think about getting married and starting my own family and knowing it will be harder to visit. The guilt, maybe somewhat self imposed, is draining

The past few weeks I’ve been feeling devoid of any passion/interest (been building up over time though), there have been days where I just lie in bed either feeling numb or wanting to go to sleep as an escape.

Luckily on working days I’m able to keep up my productivity enough, but mainly just because I find myself with no appetite or too busy to eat, so I’ve started to lose some weight too.

Started on meds, but to anyone else who’s gone through similar, how did you start to work through it?
