So sorry that today started out so difficult for you. I've been there, I rated day after day a "1" on a scale of 1-5 earlier this year. So depressed and not knowing how I could go on.
Suggestions: just breathe, as they say, though I don't get much relief from this; a walk outside in the sun, even if just 10 minutes; talking to us and a friend in person if you can do that. Don't worry about burdening your friends - pick the one who is most understanding. Stay busy at work, as you already know.
Good luck to you my friend, and be well.
Wondering why you're not all holly-jolly? You likely have a case of holiday blues. While it often seems every human being on earth is in fa-la-la land, it's actually pretty common to feel blah around the holidays. Still, that doesn't mean you have to hibernate until spring.
Confide in a friend. "It always makes me feel better to talk to my best friend," I can tell her anything." It's OK to dump on a caring chum.If you just want to vent while your friend listens, that's fine. Spill, spill, spill. But if you want solutions to your probs, your pal could come in handy in that department too. Perhaps you two could put your heads together and brainstorm your options. Feel better already, don'tcha? :)
I put a new holiday thread up yesterday.........follow along and post your feelings and questions: "How to Beat the Holiday Stress"
I am thinking of you.
