    been going through a rough patch myself & thought I’d let you know I find you really inspiring.

    I’m incredibly familiar with what you’ve described. (It sucks.) You’re smart enough to separate the facts in your life (you have positive things to look forward to) from the feelings (you’re stuck in a deep hole you can’t see out of and everything looks and feels like shit). And yet our twisted thinking encourages us to believe that the feelings represent the way things are. No wonder you’re angry. Sometimes it helps me to re-frame things: what if my rage is really the way I respond to dealing with existential fear? What if the anger is instead some kind of profound sadness I’m living with? And how would I comfort my closest friend if they were experiencing this fear or sadness? Yes, I know that line of thinking is twee.

    The other thing is that the more rage-y/sad/scared I felt, the more I insisted on isolating myself. Which is the fastest way to get stuck in your own head. (Lather, rinse, repeat.)

    No real advice, here. Just some solidarity. Hang on, the moods change eventually.
