I'm feeling brighter today, but just physically and emotionally washed-out. I should come good in a few more days. I'll have to postpone my day volunteering at Meals on Wheels tomorrow... part of this 'cycle' (for me) is kinda being a bit reclusive when there's strangers around in a public situation. Yes, it's impossible to explain it all... not that I understand it all myself...
I'm fine at home, or with a small group of friends at the moment. Tomorrow I'll probably wake up and feel fine and go in all the same. I hope so. It's usually a cathartic(?) thing for me, in a funny kinda way.
Sent and received an email from Julian, the drummer... I confided in him that I had a bit of a depressive turn, and he could not have been more encouraging. I'm really grateful for his support that way. Sometimes, being single and in my situation as a divorced dad, sometimes I feel (rightly or wrongly) that no-one is on "my side". So his simple encouragement was really helpful for me.
Mood CheckYesterday, I was a 2. Today I am a 4. "Getting so much better all the time" (Lennon/McCartney) (Thanx to Shadowe for the link)
How are you doing? Can you tell us a little about what is going on in your life?
1 - Horrible, the worst, hopeless, not functioning, extremely depressed; Hospitalization needed
2 - Not much better, barely functioning, very depressed; Wondering "What's the point?"
3 - Low level functioning, still so depressed
4 - Feeling okay, getting by, yet could be better; Not
coping up to par, but not quite as depressed
5 - Satisfied, functional, not feeling depressed, but not feeling great either! There is hope!
6 - Starting to feel more stable, a little more energy and feeling like joining in life again!
7 - Feeling okay! Pretty good, actually! Hopeful!
8 - Great! Very Happy! Things are going well.
9 - Fantastic, stable; Excellent; Life is good.
10 -Feeling confident and competent! I can do anything!
We had some a-maze-ing rainfall here last night and this morning... a couple of inches dropping like sheets from the sky!!! The sky all afternoon has been varying shades of dark-grey, but apart from some distant rumblings, there's been no follow-up waterfalls. I guess it all up and move on into Sydney, 200 kms / 120 miles away.
Even tho the grass was 'slashed at' the other week, it sure needs doing yet again. It's not a good idea to use an electric lawnmower on wet grass tho, is it? heh heh.
Thanx to MOTD for the fun pic!
Peas be with ewe
