Update June 1st

1 Jun

Summer has started and hopefully by noon my professor has posted my last grade, I’m not sure on yet.  I’ve been feeling very clingy lately and I know it’s just because 20 something’s friend won’t be as available in the summer and fall semesters.  I’m trying to go with the DBT skill of opposite action, so for this situation it’s pretty much trying not to contact him every day and letting him make the arrangements if we hang out.  It helps because I won’t hurt if he says no, and he will message me or a regular basis, so it’s not like I have to worry about letting the friendship go.  Once summer school starts I plan to check in from time to time but to put the least amount of pressure as possible, so he can be successful.

I’m still having a lot of anxiety with 20 somethings group (the LGBT group I go to weekly), I feel like I’m a facilitator and should be mature but some of the people I just don’t like.  I’m trying to tell myself that I only have to be professional in group and am not obligated to invite them to anything outside group but it’s hard.  I know what it feels like to be left out or not invited and I don’t want people to feel like that, even if I don’t really like them.  I’m also afraid it will lead to the even more clique-ness and choosing sides that are already going on.

A lot of psych meds, specifically anti-psychotics can mess with your metabolic functions (blood sugar, cholesterol, AST, and ALT).  I had blood taken last Friday and am happy to report my cholesterol (which I’ve always had a problem with and family history) is the lowest it’s been in 6 years!  My blood sugar is exactly the same as last time, which is borderline high but I have a sweet tooth and was impressed it didn’t go up.  The only thing sort of off is the ALT, liver function which has me having anxiety about liver disease or something.  Gotta worry about something right?  😉

Here’s a chart of the cholesterol:
