I’m good. Just a really rough day at work. It’s been 5 years, why is my first instinct always “I need a drink”?!

OP, it’s the path wired in your mind. Try your best to revert the thoughts elsewhere

I’ve realized that when I go to my step family’s vacation home I am miserable the whole time. There is always so much gossip, drama, elitism unhealthy food and drink (I have an eating disorder FY) and I just really don’t like who I am when I’m there and how it makes me feels. I only go out of a sense obligation because my mom wants me to go. I really think I need to draw a boundary and stop going for my own well-being. Any advice on how to do this? Thank you

I finally broke down and went back on HRT last week. I have been taking gabapentin for a nerve injury which I’ve learned helps hot flashes. I can’t tell a significant difference yet aside from maybe getting a little better sleep. I saw a new doctor (male) to get my prescription refilled and he seems to have a different philosophy than my last doctor (female). He wants me to be on HRT until 51, but after that he doesn’t recommend it. I hope by that age I’ll be off the gabapentin…

Just got made redundant today, it comes by surprise I didn’t really see it coming. Now I’m lost. And I’m on Singapore with working visa until christmas. I can’t go back yet. I am depressed.

I started taking Adderal, 2.5 g which is not really a lot. It didn’t really help with my focus, instead I felt restless and somehow nervous and really thirsty. And it made me clench my teeth. I do grind my teeth during nighttime but never experienced this in the daytime. Does it take time to get used to it?
