Staggered [Apr. 23rd, 2012|11:24 am]
Zoethe
For some reason I am just staggeringly sad today. This is weird for me, because this is a weekend where I got very good news about a dear friend, and tomorrow is my birthday. I don't think I'm bothered by my birthday--I love my birthday!

I went to bed at a decent time, but could not fall asleep, so was late getting up this morning. But I did get my workout in (though not my bike ride yet--it's miserable out, so it's going to be another one-mile day). I didn't want to have a no-aerobics day so I did 40 minutes on the ski machine, plus upper body strength training. It did boost my mood a little, but I am still having a tough time of this day.

I don't know. I'm just sad today.

*hugs* And real ones in a few days. I hope it's just a case of the blues that passes quickly. Hang in there!

FWIW, it seems to be going around. I woke up in a funk too and while I can identify the reasons for some of it, it mostly seems disproportionate. I'm sorry you seem to be in a similar place.

My moods are affected by the barometric pressure/weather fronts. I can "feel" them coming. Those of us in the east are having one doozy of a front right now...perhaps this is impacting you as well???

The weather might have something to do with it. It's certainly noticeable in my sinuses!

I know exactly what you're talking about. I woke up in a pretty normal mood, but it's been downhill since then, for no particular reason. I'm hoping for a better Tuesday.

Tuesday has to be better. It's the most important day of the year! It's always wonderful! ;-)

I can sympathize with those sad-for-no-apparent-reason days. Hope your birthday isn't one of them.

I've perked up quite a bit, though still a little fragile. I am determined that tomorrow shall be awesome.

I hope you find a way to be less sad. I know it's difficult, sometimes.

My thoughts are with you.

Maybe a cup of tea and a chocolate or two? Call a friend or go out for lunch. Hope you bounce back quickly.

Thank you. I had a nap and that helped some. Tomorrow is lunch with friends.

My sympathies. I know too well how a funk can come on with no identifiable cause.

Thank you. I am improving. I think it was at least partially sub-drop.

We always try to find a reason for things. It gives us an illusion of cause-and-effect, and the possibility for control of same.

Sometimes the brain chemicals just aren't cooperating, despite external goodness. Luckily, this too shall pass. (Sometimes like a kidney stone, but pass nonetheless.)

Sometimes there's a crash after a long period of tension - even when the tension is relieved with *good* news! That could be all this is. Hope you continue the upswing, we're both watching you. (And could you move that beehive farther from the blasted window...?)
