What are your favorite movies and tv shows?

Another post made me think that we can help each other find new shows and movies to watch.

What genre of shows do you like?

What are some shows/movies that you really liked?

What are some shows/movies that you completely disliked or had to stop watching several minutes or halfway through?

I'll start.... I love scary movies these days, Pre-Dday the I have never seen a Friday the 13th movie or Halloween, Mirrors and the grudge scared me after watching those 2 I had my exh check the rooms before I walked in. I couldn't stand to see the bathroom mirror from my bed. And yes, I to pull the shower curtain back to make sure someone isn't in the shower. From either that anti-pressant or the depression they don't scare me or make hard to sleep at im

I like the scare and startles but none of the overkill of gore.

I like mysteries, psychological thrillers, who-didits, romances, revenge, some science, law order, dark

Just so weary

I’m just so weary and worn out. Work has been rough for the last year. We have been short handed and haven’t been able to get anyone to show up once they have been hired. I normally just "assist" 3 people but I have been assisting 10 for over a year. I have a heavy workload because I multi task and do a good job. I have been working they lunch or taking home work (I’m salary so I don’t get paid overtime). There’s just too much work for me. The company is nice and are family oriented but I work with a majority of men and they have wives at home taking care of their kids.

Meanwhile in my house the kids have been picking on each other… and me. I really wish I had someone to lighten my load or even talk to. Thanks for letting me vent.

Does anyone suffer from sleep or death anxiety?

Some background, there was a funeral I went to as a child that was traumatizing. During college both of my grandmothers died a month apart At one of the viewings, I "saw" my grandmother sit up in her coffin and stare at me. I knew it was a hallucination later but it felt so real. I had nightmares for months of her telling me that I killed her.

Death scares me and the thought of being buried alive. I can’t stand to be in the same room with a dead body. I was hysterical at my grandfathers funeral 14 years ago. After DD, ptsd has really heightened my death fears/anxiety. Starting about 7 years ago I started having frequent nightmares that someone was trying to kill me. Or I wake up with the feeling that someone is in the house and is going to kill me.

Since the pandemic, it’s gotten worse. My line of work was exempt from the stay home orders so I would just go to work and come home without really talking to anyone. My kids’ schools were closed and since I was working they went to stay with their dad for almost 3 months. My dog died right before the pandemic started so when the kids are gone I’m completely alone. There have been numerous people that I personally know die in the last 2 years.

I tried to comfort myself by telling myself that death is just like sleeping… it’s peaceful. Well that caused extreme sleep anxiety now 😩

I started to have panic attacks in my sleep. I would wake up with incredible chest pain, rapid breathing, fight or flight feeling and a sense of someone was in the house. Another time as I was laying in bed, I heard a whooshing sound in my ears, I could hear my heart beating/ pulsing in my ears and felt the blood leave my extremities. I had the sharp pins and needles feeling and unable to move for over 30 minutes. I have a hard tile going to sleep… my heart starts to race and I get anxious.

I’ve talked to a doctor once I started getting the panic attacks at work. I’m on antidepressants and sleeping pills.

My question is anyone else going thru the same thing with death or sleep anxiety? What has helped you? How do you cope? Does therapy work?

Fun activity with the kids

So a friend of mine told me that when you open the package of a bandaid you can see a small glow or spark. I went through a lot of band aids (with the kids)

It was really fun but we had a lot of band aids without wrappers. Last week I discovered that breathe right strips when opened can create a blue light/spark. and the best part is you can close the package and open it over and over again and you can still get the spark/light.

What are some fun things you have done with your kids?
