An earthquake of magnitude 6.7 hit Dhaka. It was 4:40 AM we just prayed and got out of the house along with some others who were woken up by the strong shake.

All shook up. Don’t think I can even study today. Mom doesn’t get it, says all the others are going to jobs and schools while I am sitting here being miserable.

I tell mom why she was criticizing me when other people don’t have to take antidepressants for being able to even think. Fuck this shit. Now just sighing. Lots of people in India probably died. Just wondered how easily something can happen and wishing it to be over won’t work.

    Well realistically your mom actually does not know what everyone else is doing or how they are feeling. She did not go into every house on the block to see if the people were all fine.

    How does she know there are not other people who are frightened, shaken , and having trouble focusing because of the earthquake?

    There are certainly other people who are not going to school or work, because they were emotionally and mentally affected by the earthquake.

    It is a tactic to tell someone that their reaction is wrong and that no one else would feel or behave that way. They are just saying that , expecting you to take their word for it.

      Yeah. That is true. Although people here tend to have a “damn-care” attitude, but it couldn’t have been the same for those who were like me. It gets tiring when I get told so often how I am wrong on so many things in so many levels 😦 Gosh! Yes 😦 Thanks so much for supporting, Anne *hugs*

    Dear Mon,

    I wouldn’t go out after a 7.8 either who does she think she is – super woman?

    You are OK that’s what matters and she will never know how hard it is just to get up on Antidepressives never mind go out on an ordinary day let alone one when the earth might swallow you up.

    Were there many Aftershocks, there hasn’t been a mention of it here, though I haven’t had the radio on much today

      Actually, she thinks she is a little more than superwoman lol. But yes, Andrew. Thank you for understanding!
      There wasn’t many afershocks, but the ground is a lot more fragile here now. Every time a truck goes bye, it feels as if the floor is shaking. Thank you ❤

    Very scary that can be. Some people escape by trying not to think about it, but the truly courageous ones are the ones admitting it happened. That incident will shake anyone to the core, my prayers are with you lovely, stay strong and you handle things the way you do. Nevermind what your mom, dad or friends say, you do things Mon’s way.

    my thoughts are with you! This must affect you especially strongly as you deal with depression. Depression has always made my surroundings feel threatening, and scary events are even worse. Take care, glad you are safe.

    I’m so sorry! We had an earthquake, with many aftershocks, a little more than a week ago. It was only a 4.4, but I can understand your worry, shock, and feeling of being unsettled. You will, hopefully, feel better soon.
