full moon.

the shared compliant this week is hard to describe.

in general, people said they felt: “bad”, “weird”, “anxious”, “very stressed”, “agitated”, “irritable”, “angry”, “depressed”, “sad”, “hopeless”, “on edge”, “queasy”, and “nervous”.

for some people these emotions manifested into: headaches, severe stomach pain, lower back pain, diarrhea, palpitations, shoulder tension, neck pain, reduced appetite, and/or insomnia.

it seems a lot of people are having a hard time.

also, lots of people are trying to get pregnant.

depression.

many patients report experiencing alternating anxiety and depression. this week, depression seems to have the upper hand. the words i’ve heard repeated most are: apathy, disinterest, fatigue, overwhelm, numbness, hopelessness, sadness, and exhaustion.
