Losing day but would like to make note of my progress. I'm following rules and trading more logically then emotionally. I didn't realize to what extent my trading was emotional. Not perfectly unemotional today, though. After some understandable and managed losses, I jumped in to GTH and it tanked. I was jumping in to a mover and much less careful probably due to my previous losses and how hot today is. However, things are also dropping like hot knives today as well. Today was a mixed bag, but I noticed progress on how I handled losses. I'm also a bit frustrated with how clunky etrade is. But that is also 100 percent my issue and I have to figure out how to work with what I have. They are not good on fills, and getting worse over time, probably due to free commission. I enjoy the free commissions because I can jump in and out of whatever I like, so I don't share the opinion that free commissions are bad. Maybe it's six of one, half dozen of the other, but for me personally I don't want to lose ten bucks just because I got in a trade. I don't want to have to make ten bucks to break even. Just some thoughts, by no means complete.

@Stefan_G I didn't take a mental health day I needed and didn't do a single thing right, and yes now I have to climb back up slowly again, I have a sick feeling in my stomach, but the way the market has been, it's not a bad idea to sit out for now. Thank you for the encouragement!!

Very happy that now I can upload my trades from etrade directly again, because some of these trades would be really hard to report otherwise. In and out different share sizes and prices, multiple times. Yikes.
