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.

It's your birthday; you are entitled to some awesome. Or, at a minimum, cake. Which is pretty awesome.

Lunch with our best friends is the awesome of choice for tomorrow.

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.

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

I suspect my personal malaise at the moment is partly fueled by PMS (please gods let me start on time so I'm not dealing with THAT during the marathon a week from Sunday...OMG it's a week from Sunday!!) and partly aggrevation having dealt with the unemployment office today. *sighs* So we're having LaRosa's feed us, 'Yote tracked down a book for me to start working on (having finished Hunger Games last night and not having the sequel in my hands yet ARG!) and just going to curl up on the couch with Himself for the evening.

Sounds like a good plan. We have gaming tonight, and Indian food is being procured (we take turns buying dinner), so it should be fun. Indian food makes me almost as happy as sushi does!

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...?)
