This past week I've felt terrible..not so fantastic since when I feel sick I also get all sad and depressed and mopey. Is that how you spell that? No is now though =P Anywho, I went to the doctor's today and they figured out my severe headaches and neck pain that I've had the past week are coming from tensed up nerves in my neck...which have been radiating the pain on up to my head. Now I have muscle relaxers and so far so good. I feel a lot better. Still trying to work out the sad/sluggish feelings though. Haven't been out of my house besides the doctor in four days. Probably should do that since I usually walk/run every day. Perhaps this is causing my sluggish behavior.

Also been dealing with some issues with friends. Now that I'm in college I have the "University friend group" that I can't see often because we all live in different cities, so I've been keeping in contact with them through phone and good old Facebook. I miss them terribly. Every time I think of something that reminds me of them I get a little sad, but I see them in a week and a half, so those feelings should be short lived. On the other hand I have the "High school group" who I never see anymore except for Christmas break and summer break. So of course now that we've been around eachother for so long it's like we're almost tired of being in the same city. I love my friends at home, but I can tell we're starting to invade eachother's personal space.

Anyone else have those feelings ever? Where you love someone to death, but just don't really want to be around them as much anymore? I don't know how to convey those feelings to my friends without coming off as horribly rude. I'm sure we'll think of something, since we all leave relatively soon for school again.

Che - it just sounds like you are ready to go back to college. It's alright to say no to going out with friends. You can say you are busy getting ready to leave for college. No need to hurt anyone's feelings by saying that. Hope you have a great year!

I have friends,

But I get times where I like to be alone. They understand. Sometimes I just dont' have the energy to go out. But they still understand. That is what good friends do. So you could do as posted above. I think myjoy gave you some good ideas.

Hugs, Karen
