Sitting here on a peaceful spring Saturday morning, sipping coffee and listening to birds chirp. I just wanted to say how lucky we are to 1. have each other and 2. Have the option of getting help.

Has anyone ever dealt with a relationship where the person is emotionally unavailable?
Met a great girl was receiving great feedback but then all of a sudden she pulled back and said to only want FWB I mistakenly agreed but kept getting the same feedback of her wanting to be treated like a gf but then no communication after meeting. I have not heard back after asking about her intentions which she found aggravating and kept saying she was too busy.

This is a very weird issue but thought this bowl might be able to help. I started dating my bf 8 months ago. Before that I have been single all my life. A few months ago, I started getting really bad panic attacks (which I worked on and it got better) but I’m still very anxious all the time. I feel dizzy and my legs feel numb and shaky even when I’m walking.
I was thinking about this earlier today trying to figure out the trigger and I realized that before I got into the relationship, I was

Is anybody else staying in a toxic job/culture to build their resiliency or prove something to themselves?

Started new job (post-consulting) a year back and have seen little concern for people, constant leadership bullying, and demoralized colleagues.

However, at times in career I have felt too “soft” - not great with confrontation & only thrive in friendly environments. Is there logic in staying to build resiliency? (Or perhaps I should lower my expectation of humanity in business?)

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?

Thought I’d share an amazing nugget I got from my therapist this week about how anxiety and depression is also tied to our nervous system. We tend to move up and down throughout these different stages within our nervous system, tied to physical symptoms of anxiety/depression. If you’re struggling with treatment resistant mental health issues, or just in general, Google “Vagus Nerve Exercise”. It helps reset your nervous system. Hope this can help someone else too!
