What Is Wrong With Me?

I do not know why I feel as I do these last couple of days.

What I do know is that I have been unable to get good, consistent rest. Last night, I was up all night again. If that was not bad enough, the tears have been flowing freely for several hours.

I am not feeling particularly upset at anything, but have been feeling an overall feeling of being overwhelmed by so much. Usually, as we approach the summertime, I come out of the winter doldrums.

Of course, I have to be to work in less than two hours, ready to take on the third day of a workshop facilitation. I could sure use some strong, good juju today.

I need to take some time for myself to do something enjoyable in this next 11 days I have not been schedule. I wish I had someone to do it with.

*HUG* Carol, you do a lot for a lot of strangers. To me, it's not any wonder that you should be overwhelmed at some point. I'm sorry. I don't have an answer.

Sorry you are feeling down Coral. Maybe you are missing (RFG?) and all you had to do for him, including cooking and cleaning out your mystery freezer? You do a LOT of training, would a new project help? Have you tried prezi, the presentation software? My daughter is using academic prezi for putting her presentations onto. Do you do any exercise? Have you tried a new class? Maybe you could find someone to buddy up with there?

Try taking melatonin before bedtime. Sometimes it can be due to lack of exposure to the sun or hormone changes in our body.

This is one of those times when you focus on the "little things" and forget about the 'Big Picture.' You're more likely to discover "little successes" and "little positives" than one "big" one. Likewise, it tends to put things in perspective. If they are 'little,' they can be handled. You take the "juju" generated from those, then you go take some time for yourself.

I hope today is a better day for you, Coral. Stout heart!

I feel that way sometimes too. I do hope your day is good today.

Sorry I can't physically be there to boost your spirits but it doesn't sound like anything is “wrong” with you. You describe a feeling many of us experience. Don't know if that helps. Try to think happy thoughts. I'll be thinking of and praying for you. Be blessed dear lady! XOXOXO! :)

We all get down in the dumps at times. One thing which makes me sad and quite depressed is the realisation that, at my time of life, there are fewer days ahead than lie behind.

Ummmmh - just realised that's not going to be much comfort to you. Sorry.

I have this problem too. About twice a month I am up all night. I just get so interested in my writing that the time goes by and before I know it it is 6a. and I end up staying up until 10a. or so. I just try to go ahead and take it slow the rest of the day but end up getting too tired to stay up. Ugh! Fatigue.
