I think what everyone has warned me about has happened.... I think I have fallen into my own depression....
I am trying so hard to move on and do stuff for me and as long as I am on the go I am good.... But...  I can't sleep... it takes me forever to fall asleep and if I do, i wake up in the middle of the night and I can't shut my brain off...  I am not worried about something specific, but I just can't stop thinking and fall aslep....
Today is sunday and we are having a lazy day and my boys need this.. But I just feel so aggitated and want to get out of the house...  Yet, my mommy brain knows my boys are not feeling great and just need to relax in their house with their toys.... 
I am bored, yet I cannot get myself to do anything....  urrrggg....   I just want to scream!!!!

I am sorry that you are feeling so down. I am in the same boat as you, and to tell you the truth I don't even know how it all got started. I think the only reason I am sleeping is because I take something for sleep, and I still wake up a few times in the middle of the night.

I am glad you are taking part of today to take it easy, you probably need it more than you know. You won't have that same chance during the week.

Most of the time, I have to push myself to do things, like around the house. The laundry, the dishes, papers get pilled up so high usually to the point that I cannot take it anymore. That is my only motivation to get things done, which is very sad. But it has to get done, no one can live in this state forever. So take it in baby steps, and try to get a little bit done evryday. Hang in there!

Oh my goodness SW, I can SOOOOOO sympathize. My girl had a really mild case of chicken pox over the last two weeks. She'd been immunized, but was still contagious, so we couldn't go out. Oh. My. God. One manic bored woman. One housebound child. Wasn't pretty.

I did house projects to help: hung plants. Rearranged drawers. That sort of thing. Only helped a little but some.

It is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare

SW.....Glad to know it isn't just me.....

Between my sleep apnea, from which I get no good sleep, so I am terribly fatigued all day....
and my general depression over the whole situation with Michael....I don't know how I get anything done....but then when I am at work all day...I have so much anxiety...I am a ball of nerves....the constant back and forth exhausts me, too.......

And now that I am living alone....I have no motivation to make sure the dishes are done every day, or the laundry, or the general cleaning.....

I don't know if it is the change in weather...or the time change.....but I have been very BLAH!
