Sorry For My Absence

I just haven't felt great. I've been feeling pretty low. Nothing in particular... yet everything. I'm in a funk. A what-am-I-doing-here? type of funk. I watch all these uplifting videos, inspirational, help you get undepressed type of videos, and I still feel depressed. I feel like there is nothing I can do that will make my life better. I know there are people who are worse off than me but that doesn't change the way I feel about myself. I'm frustrated with my husband, frustrated with my older daughter, frustrated with the finances, frustrated with the lack of a support network, etc. etc. It's a why-did-I-get-out-of-bed? type of week.

{climbin' through the puter screen 'n wrappin' my arms 'round 'ja} bless yer heart, i find myself 'n similar ruts 't times. when such seems to wish to completely engulf me, i turn to nature to be my guide (i realize this don't work fer all, but find yer passion 'n indulge yerself a bit). such reminds me that dispite the potholes, my life aint that bad. i focus'n the good'n beauty, which helps me put the rest 'nto perspective. some thingies we cannot change, but out take'n schtuff's one that we can.

That's part of the problem - I no longer know what my passion is. I haven't found my purpose and with my life more than half over, it doesn't feel so great.

@crazyhorseladycx Thanks for your kind words. I feel very limited with rarely having a car to get around and my physical inabilities.

I'm so sorry, Pat. I have times when I feel like that, too. Sometimes we just feel "stuck." I don't know about you, but I always come out of it eventually. Somebody calls or comes over, or I find something new to do and it's over quick as it started. I hope your funk doesn't go on too long, it's no dang fun. Hugs.

It's weird. I've been hearing that quite a few people are feeling rather depressed lately, and not those with the same illness as me. Actually, perfectly healthy people.
