I’m not prone to depressed moods. Over the past few years, when things got really rough financially, I had some serious emotional lows, but I could feel that it was just situational stress weighing me down.

This is different. These past few days, I’ve been in a funk, and I don’t really have a good explanation for it. I just can’t remember the last time I felt down without knowing why, so this is really weird.

I’ve been trying to be good to myself, allowing myself to unwind and be a pajama-clad homebody when I get home from work. But I’m also trying not to let myself give in to it too much: for example, I forced myself to work out this morning even though I didn’t feel like it (which is weird all by itself).

I do have to work some this weekend, and I don’t have discretionary income to speak of so I’ll be relaxing in all the old familiar ways: hanging out with Karsten, petting kitties, writing songs, playing around on the computer, reading, and so on.

But I’ll gratefully accept hugs and wishes for a moodlift any time now!

    *hugs* and many moodlift vibes!

    You’re going through a *lot* these days, Kate – this could be situational, too. But whether it is or isn’t, I hope the sun shines more brightly for you soon.

    a bottle of wine, a soft, cuddly kitty and a karsten. sounds like a sure moodlifter to me. 🙂 hope things start feeling better.

    Incidentally, I was thinking about the wine, too, but decided to avoid it since 1) it’s a depressant, and I’m already there ;- and 2) my family’s history of alcoholism means that I always try to find a non-alcoholic comfort in favor of an alcoholic one.

    But thanks for your wishes!
