No, I can’t say that I am depressed. I have seen friends who have suffered from depression, and I can honestly say I’m nowhere near that. For that I am grateful. I don’t think I could write a post if I were in such pain.
I am, however, feeling very sad. It sometimes happens to me. It’s not cyclical, or even predictable as some hysterical maladies can be, if you get my drift! It just happens. The timing of this sucks rocks, though. I am used to keeping a cheerful face for the kids, but this time the whole family knows I am not myself. Trying to allay fears and lessen the impact is difficult, though. Usually this passes after a few days, and I hope that this time it will pass a bit more quickly than that. I am not one to wallow in self-pity. Unless I spill my coffee. But I am having a tough time keeping it under wraps. So, forgive me friends for my absence at your blogs. I promise I shall return eventually, as caustic and sarcastic as ever.
It’s just going to take me a little time 🙂

take some time, I know I have too sometimes…

I won’t say it happens to everyone, because I don’t know. I do know that it happens to me. I always feel worse because I have no reason to be sad or droopy- I just am. Remember though, sugar only helps at the front end- the back end slide is not worth it! Feel better soon…. maybe a short walk in this beautiful sunshine,

Hey…I can relate. Sending Loves and Hugs.

awww sweet Aggs, you need a sholder, im there – take care and know that you are loved

It is completely understandable. You can’t be happy-happy all the time just like it can’t rain all the time. So don’t worry about not visitin’. Thanks for the heads-up so we don’t worry that you got hit by a blimp or run over by a rhino on the way to the grocery store or something. Just say the word if you need anything, m’kay?

I know the feeling, Aggie. I’m having one of those days myself. Okay, one of those weeks. Months? I’d better quit while I’m behind.

Two things, and then I’ll be quiet. (Yeah, right. Tell me another western.)
To everything there is a season…. And looking at your life, taking general stock of what you have which is not superficial…the really important things (relatively good health, a healthy family, a loving spouse, food on the table, roof over your head…then comparing that to what most folks through out the rest of the world have (or don’t have)…tends to pull me out of my funks rather quickly.
May you pull out of your funk as soon as you are able.

Be with yourself, until your self is ready to be with us…omg, how zen-like. Quick…a shot of whiskey!!! Or a bubblebath with a glass of wine.
April 24th, 2012 at 6:14 PM
Take care, girl.

Know the feelin…those days/weeks hit me out of the blue far too often.
That bein said, there’s not much out there that a couple hours’ worth of recoil therapy won’t cure (bigger the recoil, bigger the therapy, I always say! Take two [hundred] rounds of Mosin-Nagant, and call me in the morning. …then take two Advil for your shoulder. hehehehehehe).

All of the suggestions are awesome, and I have been careful not to OD on sugar, too 😉

Aggie, weathering melancholy is like slogging through a swamp – difficult going and tiring on the best of days. The swamps do end, though, the air will clear of gnats and skeeters, and this episode will be relegated to history. Bear up, and try forcing a real smile – using those muscles makes it hard to stay down. Put (more?) vaseline on your front teeth as a primer, too.

I’m so happy to hear from you, Jazz. You have been missed 🙂
April 30th, 2012 at 10:45 AM
That’s sweet and wonderful, and now I feel like a warm and fuzzy heel.

hope you’re feeling better… 🙂
to cheer yourself up on May Day…. maybe you could burn an occu-commie at the pole (may pole that is) – in effigy of course

Remember….Star Wars Day is this Friday! “May the Fourth” be with you!
