Default Been Down Lately....

Ugh.

I really can't put my finger on the reason, but I have been super down lately. I have trouble getting out of bed to go to work in the morning, I don't have the energy to do anything after work, but I have a heck of a time getting to sleep at night. I didn't do a thing this weekend, other than watch Netflix. DH even handled feeding the pets. It seems like obsessive interneting is the only thing I have any interest in. It's all I can do to shower and go to work in the morning. I don't want to even leave the house, but I'm afraid if I start calling off work because of this that will be the point of no return.

I talked to my doctor and he uped my medication dose by a half a pill because I have been having these issues more often lately. I hope it starts to make a difference soon--I feel like the life is being sucked out of me.

Just had to get this off my chest--DH gets bothered when I talk about this kind of stuff because I think he's just at a loss.

I've been there. (((((HUGS)))))

It sounds simplistic, but the one thing that really helps me pull myself out of the morass is exercise. The endorphin thing is so true.

Getting yourself kick started is hard . . . Want us to give you a push?

The past week has been really off for me as well. Unfortunately, today was the worst so far. I just hope it's not a sign of the week to come.

I'm trying to get outside as much as I can, especially with this stupid vitamin D deficiency I have despite my body being a poster child for too much sun exposure and skin cancer, but today I haven't even wanted to get out much. I went out and fed the horses, but only got halfway through scooping the pasture before just wanting to crash.

There's been something going on the past week or so. It's been . . . . everywhere.

Today's been bad for me too. It is my mom's birthday and that always makes me just want to hole up and do nothing all day. My best advice is to force yourself up if you can and make sure you are eating healthy food! That always makes a difference to me. Anyways I totally understand because today was bad for me, I feel like a total waste and it is such a horrible feeling. What I plan to do is to just go to sleep early and start tomorrow as a brand new day.

Weird, I've been kind of the same. I wouldn't consider myself a "depressed" person but I've just been very unmotivated to do much of anything. Bleghhh, it sucks. I think deep down it's this time of year. Summer coming up reminds me of my brother (who passed in June 2006 at the age of 5 due to drowning) AND his birthday was in July. He'd be 12 this year. And I think that, even though I *think* it's out of my head and I'm doing okay, that it's really not and I can't help but just... miss him deeply.

But *sigh* I feel ya. I hope you start to feel better. I really need to begin working out again because it helped me a lot when I was.

We should just have a big support group <3

It's been a rough couple weeks - I have no friends here, no job, and when you spend too much time with one person you start not liking them, so I'm convinced my boyfriend hates me. I got most of my house unpacked & pictures hung today, so that made me feel a bit better. Probably doesn't help that I always forget to take my pills.

**vibes** for a good week this week!
