Feeling Gloomy


I'm feeling gloomy again... not as bad as Monday or Tuesday, but not good either. I'll be fine, there's just some sad stuff going on right now that I won't be blogging.

I walked Nicky last night... dang dog kept jerking me around. I can feel it this morning. My hip is acting up too, but I'm not sure that's his fault... perhaps the changing weather is messing with me right now too.

Then, to round out everything, Aunt Flo is here for her monthly visit.

Nothing exciting from the doc: she suggested I try a different antihistamine (I'm going to try going off them for now, then try the new stuff if my allergies get too annoying), sent me for a blood test to check my thyroid and a few other things, and also will be contacting a therapist for me. It sounds like this therapist does low-income stuff, but also has a bit of a wait (possibly two months). Maybe if I'm lucky I'll fix myself first, and then won't need her.

I started designing a new silk painting last night. I'll post photos when/if I finish. (The designs take me a long time, so don't hold your breath.)

Hope everything is okay. I'll be home Sunday evening if you need to talk.

Regarding procrastination - my therapist recommended a book called "The Now Habit." Not that I've read it - I've been procrastinating. ;-)

Hope you feel better...maybe it's the winter blues! If it's any consolation...Aunt Flo is visiting me too!!!

Sorry to hear you are blue. Hope the wait isn't long for therapy. I have found it helpful in the past and could probably use some even now! But especially when things were feeling worse than normal, it helped me out.

As for Aunt Flo, I have read somewhere, and it seems to be true for me, that it is a time during which we are on a different type of alert mode from normal. Our emotions are high (duh) but also our brains are working to determine what is NOT working in our lives. It is a time to evaluate and brainstorm solutions. I feel much better when I approach things this way. It is upsetting to realize that there are so many things in my life that need fixing, but at the same time it makes me aware that I can benefit from this high-awareness time to try to make things better.
