I'm starting to spiral down again.  I don't want to, but I don't have the strength or energy to stop.  It's almost comforting, like slipping into a nice warm bed and pulling all of the covers over my head or sliding into a nice warm bubble bath and closing my eyes.  It feels so close and familar.  I had plans to hang out with a friend of mine tonight, but the weather is nasty here again.  The roads are covered with ice, so I'm staying put instead.  I also have plans for Super Bowl Sunday with some other friends of mine.  But, right now, I just feel completely alone and unloved.  I had started dating a nice, decent guy, but come to find out he's so wrapped up in figuring out what he wants to do with his life, that I don't think he has any interest in any type of relationship.  So, I'm bummed and feeling empty and a little depressed.  Thanks for listening.

Hi Sadsong
I was wondering how you were doing. So glad that you checked in.

You know...the whole winter thing just basically sucks. I have felt so alone these last couple of months, no one around ect.stuck in the house...

Guys...
They are so hard to deal with. Just remember that you deserve to have what you want..so do not settle!!!

Keep talking ((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))

You may be experiencing some Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression.  Make sure you get plenty of sunlight in your home or get out and soak up the rays on a good day. 

I understand how your feeling down after a relationship that did not grow.  Let go of this one, put it behind you.  Remind yourself you are a wonderful and caring person and stop the spiral.  Just don't give in to the easy way out and start working back up out of the funk.

You have all of us to support you so hang on sweetie.
Hugs

Right before I started spiraling down all I wanted was to be held and told that everything would be okay. But, there is no one in my life to hold me. Instead, I just want to drink copious amounts of alcohol and forget who I am. A friend of mine is making me dinner tonight (I'm bringing desert) and she has a large bottle of rum waiting for us. We'll spend the time *&%^$#@% and moaning about guys and then get pleasantly drunk. (Not that I'm encouraging anyone else do this, but I could sure use a good stiff drink after the week I've had.) And I will be spending the night at her house, so there will not be any drinking and driving. She's dealt with some major stress this past week with her ex and a guy that she was dating, so we'll have lots to commiserate about.

And, yes I do have SAD. I sit in front of a light box for 30 minutes every morning to keep the blue meanings away, but I skipped it yesterday and I've felt like %$&* ever since.

It is good to have a gripe session. My best friend and I would get a bottle of wine,and do just that..gripe about our lives and guys.

She moved to Ny and got married a couple of years ago,so I don't have that anymore...take advantage of it. And remember to be safe!

Hey all,

Thanks so much for your love and support! I'm back! :) Hanging out with my friend was exactly what I needed. It always helps when I get another person's perspective and hear what's happening in their lives too. Plus, it's too funny, we ended up going to this little dive bar in the town where she lives, since her neighbors had invited us down. They are too funny! They're an older couple, who have kids around my age and they actually started interviewing all of the cute single guys for us. I ended up talking with one of them for like two hours and actually gave him my phone number and he's already called! Can you believe it? Isn't it strange how when you least expect it things just work out for the best!?!

Hi Sadsong,

Just wanted to say I like your name that you picked. Everytime I see it I think to the Elton John song, Sadsongs say so much.

Luv and hugs,
