I made a lot of progress in 2021, but I’m aiming super high this year. Fail big or win big. I spent the second half of 2021 figuring out how to fix my physical issues, and am being treated for sleep apnea, and Monday I hopefully start testosterone replacement therapy. These two things may very well be huge!
I’m also making a change in school. I have been fixated for the last ten years or so that I have to go into public service of some kind. I realized that this isn’t what I want in life, and I was doing it more out of an unexplained duty that I felt that I owed to society. I realized I wasn’t in it for the right reasons, and have decided to do something that I WANT to do and not something I feel obligated to do. I’m starting a graphic design program on Monday and I am stoked for it.
I’m doing good at work, and am working through issues that would have caused me to quit a job two years ago. I strongly believe that everyone should work a job where they have to act silly and make people laugh and provide entertainment! My social anxiety has improved tremendously since I started my job at an escape room. Sometimes work feels impossible, and I just want to quit and not have to deal with people. I remember how good it feels to make people laugh and help them forget about paying their rent for a while.
This last week was insanely stressful at work and with my physical health, but I’ve gotten through it and I feel if I can handle the last week without completely collapsing, well I suppose I can do a lot more than I thought I could.
Things I have improved in 2021: Started working, “graduated” from therapy, no severe psychotic episode, earned associates degree.
Things I hope to improve in 2022: My physical health! This is my biggest priority this year. I’m terrified that I’m going to die in a few years if I don’t take care of my physical health. I have spent so long worried about my mental health, that my physical health has gone to crap.
What do you hope to improve upon in 2022? What was good about 2021?
I want that better sz meds come out. Vraylar should be soon released here according to my psychiatrist.
I honestly have no clue what I want out of 2022… I should probably think and plan some stuff…
To be able to see doctors for time sensitive issues without the appointments getting canceled because of the pandemic. Because the time sensitive issue may get out of hand soon without some goddamn treatment.
I really want to get my weight under control again. I’ve lost 30 lbs last year, which would’ve been more except I binged at Christmas with my family in Florida. My goal is to be at or under 200 by next year. I also would like to be a better friend, daughter, and even patient…meaning that I will improve upon my communication skills with the people closest to me.
Let me know if you want some support on MyFitnessPal.
I started using “MyNetDiary” to track my foods. I like how it breaks up the macros into a pie chart. I’ve also begun intermittent fasting and I got all of the trigger foods banished from the house. I just hope I can stick with it on a long-term basis.
Fingers crossed for you. I let things slip these last two days after four months of running a tight ship. Back on the wagon tomorrow diet wise.
I want 8 hippos.
And 6 rhinoserusus
And 5 owls
I want to finish the clinical trial I’m on and hopefully get another before the year is thru. Got credit card bills to pay.
It would be nice to win the lotto, but it probably will remain a pipe dream.
I want to get healthier, learn how to drive, have love find me…
@Squanchy hope your good luck goes with you for the year and your changes in goals and challenges go with success
i hope to get well from this minor blip episode
i feel more creative at the moment and want to make the most of it
i’m going to find out and volunteer with salvation army
continue with food abstinence in overeaters anonymous
i’m going to do so much more outside the home
not just work on vegan home cooked food for me and meat based meals for my husband at certain times of day twice a day like last year and pretty much focused just on feeding my husband for a hell of a long time
not be so financially motivated to spend money on designer crap
help people more - on here - in my family/ friends/ be more considerate and loving and patient
phone my sister every day like i’ve learned to phone my sponsor every day and my friends so i’m learning to speak on the phone now and have more give and take in conversation
get a cheap 3mm wetsuit and massively warm changing robe cheap maybe second hand and do sea swimming
do belly dancing down the road from me when i’m convinced that coronavirus is subsided in summer- prior to that do youtube videos - even though the idea of belly dancing near 50 years of age used to horrify me
also join the ramblers for a longer walk sometimes
go on holiday and cycle with my sister in better weather
visit my friend in scotland
go for a walk every morning in the beach even in heavy rain because there is no way my morning works without it
keep looking for dogs to walk in the evening near to me on borrowmydoggy
I wanna get rid of my depression and anxiety and get back to work. And get the weight that I gained from Caplyta the hell off me.
order pizza and then watch tv
honestly i don’t want anything.
i gave up on wishing . i would like things to happen in a certain way but i don’t wish for them, i fantasize then finish, like sex with a sex worker.
what i really truly need are my ciggaretes and coffee . but i could do with less or no coffee.
i could do without the money too, if i had the ciggs and food.
Able to redo last year again
I sincerely hope you get the help you need! Its frustrating having to wait for medical care, especially time sensitive medical care.
That is a fine list! It looks like a good mix of helping others and ultra important self care. Good luck!
