Guess that's why they call it the blues...

It's sort of amazing when the little light bulb finally brightens up and I just realize that I've been in the dumps for the a while. Though not totally, there have been ups and downs. Feeling antisocial, not wanting to do things that usually make me happy.

Work's been crazy - but my major project has gone live. Been sick off and on - but nothing major, just bouts of the sniffles since October's flu bit. I did finally get my H1N1C vaccination today. (go me! even though I may have had the flu in October)

Did lots of thinking while I walked this morning. Went from my place to Lee's to feed Rupert. Then walked to Park Street, then to South Shore (aka Alameda Towne Centre) and then home.

Getting rest would be good, I think. Haven't you been go-go-go for a while?

I can relate. HIt me last week that I hadn't sung out loud in longer than I could think, and that my internal soundtrack was missing. Then I counted on my fingers and toes (and the notes on my calendar) and found I've been in some variation of emergency mode since last May....

Here's to the hope that this year holds less stress and some joy!

I hear that. It's odd to me how things like mood can creep in without a lot of notice, especially since I'm very attentive to my mood for medical reasons. But it seems to always be that way... the light bulb goes on and it's like... oh, I've felt off for some time, haven't I?

I second Joey's mention of rest, if you've been super busy. Rest, alone-time. I know when my kids were younger, I always got a big "joy" increase out of being with them, but if I was hitting an introvert spiral, and feeling too dragged out, I also found I needed to carve some time just for me alone. Which was hard.

Not sure where I'm going with this... just online for the first time in awhile and noodling around. :)

ps - now I have elton john rolling around in my head... which is a VAST improvement over the music that has been sticking in my head of late!!!

*hugs* I don't have any suggestions that haven't already been made, but I understand. I'm here if you need me.
