All about the mind

Down in the dumps

I feel low.

I tend to every now and then. It’s something most people don’t know about me.

I’m not clinically depressed (Although, when I first studied all the DSM-IV psychological disorders, I did ‘diagnose’ myself with depression and a whole lot of others…but that’s a whole other post!!)

Usually, I feel down at ‘that time of the month’. Yes, PMS. But, there’s other times too. Like if I’ve read a sad book. And, more often than not, it’s when I’m not busy. It’s when I’m not working.

I have so much to be thankful for, it’s a shame to feel depressed and low.

But on the bright side, I go back to one of my jobs next week, so things should start looking up soon…

I don’t want any pity or sympathy. I don’t know what I want.

I guess…it just feels good to kinda let this out there into the cosmic cyber world.

Until next time,

    I guess we all do sometimes huh? I’d think it was lack of chocolate, but sooner or later realized it wasn’t the answer though it made things better sometimes…

    I wind up trying to focus on the positives at the time; or if it doesnt work- slumberland is the solution I swear!

    Wear your running shoes and go out and run in the open. One of the best ways to beat the blues! Happy New Year!

    @ Orhan: Thanks!

    @ Asphodel: Tell me about it…sleeping used to be my best medicine in times of extreme stress or feeling low! Now I try and challenge my thoughts but doesn’t always work.

    @ Joel: Thanks heaps! 🙂 Think that’s what I need…

    @ Raahi: I hate running even though I know the benefits! 😛 However, I did do some weights and exercise to help. Happy New Year to you too!
