So a pandemic + 2 kids under under 3 ....I now have bags and dark circles under my eye. I was comparing with my picture 2 years ago and I did not have them then. Anything I can do to reverse this before it becomes permanent. 32 Yo Male Indian here.

I have a 2 and 5 yr old. I’ve been able to avoid that type of breakdown but my wife hasn’t. She finally quit her job.

We are experiencing the same thing, actually me probably more so since she gets her own office and I’m working in the living room with the kids, but we reacted differently.

I think it’s partially your mindset. I’m so grateful that I’m able to see my kids developmental milestones that I thank my lucky stars everyday (through their screams and shrieks)

This past Wednesday (the 24th), was 3 years of sobriety for me.

In 15 years of weekend binge/blackout drinking, NEVER had I gone more than 3 weeks without a drink (typically never more than 1 weekend without a drink), and now my sobriety is counted in years (though still one day at a time).

I am beyond grateful and I know that this is something I could never do on my own.
🙏 ❤️

I reached out once but am not going to try anymore. I feel relived and like I was in a toxic relationship.

The person I’m seeing has been responding to my texts days later (only a recent development) and it’s making me anxious. They have been busy the past two weeks with PhD exams and their last message was them planning when they could see me again (in a really flirty way too), so logically I know the delay is not a sign of disinterest. But I have an anxious attachment style (if that’s not obvious) and my therapist is on leave right now, so I’m struggling. Do any of you have any advice?
