it's my party


Surely it would be a dull world if everyone was always happy. That's what I'm telling myself anyway, as the guest of honor at my very own Pity Party. I've spent most of the day fighting it, and have finally decided to go with it, to wallow in the mood until it passes. It's a workable plan as long as the party is over by tomorrow. The only thing I'm worse at than being ill or a patient is being blue. I just don't have the knack. I'm a very happy person at heart, and these dark moods really throw me for a loop.


I'm not sure what it is that's causing this. I know what I think it isn't. It isn't my foot, although it sure could be. It isn't the holidays, because I'm going low-key like nobody's business this year. It isn't money, because I see way too many people in genuine financial crisis to stress out about my situation too much. It isn't my kids, isn't my job, isn't my health. It isn't even my house. The tub is draining, thanks to some miracle stuff that my step-father recommended, and my kitchen sink is being looked at tomorrow. All my ducks are in a row. Everything is good.


Good and blue.

Let there be light! Go buy an ott light at Michael's. It's a full spectrum light that may help trick your brain. Also, just a couple more weeks then the days start getting longer again.

Good idea, the light.

I also take 5HTP at night. It helps with optimum mood support.

Might help!

Be better.

Maggie May said...

Yes, I agree with the light! Seems that the dull weather is responsible for a lot of winter blues. called SAD over here.

Glad you are getting the house problems sorted. I get blue because of my house's problems that I will be blogging about before too long!

maybe just natural ups and downs and you notice this because at the moment things are relatively smooth.

However, you have had an exhausting and stressful time the last couple of weeks, so this may just be what my Mum calls 'reaction' - maybe you just got over-wrought recently and need to have a rest. Look after yourself, rest that foot and have a good cry. You will be back to bounce before you know it.

Chocolate, you need chocolaaateeee!!!!

Altaglow said...

I second the chocolate and suggest you also add a gallon or so of mint chocolate chip ice cream to the equation. Feel better!

CrazyCath said...

Tip from a Brit - when in doubt, blame the weather.

In Britain (certainly) you wouldn't be far wrong so why not?

Hope the blues lift soon.

CrazyCath said...

Oh Flutterby and Altaglow sure have the solution! With those wonderful names I'm not surprised anyway, so chocolate it is and choc chip mint ice cream.

I'm on my way over...

Don't over analyze it, we all get the occasional blues. Under the Tuscan Sun might help, with large doses of hot chocolate!

I always just blame this sort of thing on excessive gravity...some days the world just sucks.
