Good Morning! Well, I think it's morning...it feels like morning.

I've been sleeping in an extra 1/2 hour this week. It helps a little. More later.
Current Mood: sleepysleepy

EXTRA 30 minutes?
Good morning! Ah, yes, an extra half hour would make you feel better! I am having a hard time with sleep, lately. It's not that I can't sleep...it's that I feel I have too much to do to waste time sleeping... as in I am going to SLEEP for a LONG time soon....
But everyone needs REST, and I am glad that you are getting alittle extra. The sun is coming up and the sky is BEAUTIFUL! Enjoy your day Gary!

Re: EXTRA 30 minutes?
Well, the problem with me when I have so much to do, is that I get depressed and don't have the energy or desire to do anything. I suspect that I may be entering one of those times. It's harder to get out of bed and I find that I don't have the desire to do even those things that I usually enjoy doing. I'd blame it on the coming winter, but I know that is only part of the problem.

Ah well, enough of this! On with the day.

Re: EXTRA 30 minutes?

That is exactly what I'm experiencing.
It may very well be the changing of the seasons and/or a contributor to it, as you said.

I refuse to age gracefully, so I fight it constantly....haha
That alone can wear a person out...;-)

I would be worried had I not gone through this slump before, but, sadly I have, and thank goodness it DOES pass dearone. Let's pray for both our sakes, it happens sooner, rather than later...:-)

Hi Jo and anyone else who is reading ;),

I totally agree with you on getting through this sooner rather than later! And yes, this has happened to me many times in my life. I've gone to a counsellor, and been on medication, but it just keeps on coming back.

Now, I wouldn't want you to think that this is severe depression. In my case, it is somewhat less than that. I can manage to do the things I absolutely need to do, such as get up and go to work. It's those optional and semi-optional things that I have trouble doing.

I have hopes that writing about it all in here will be helpful to me in some way. Thanks for sharing with me.

Re: writing about it!
As do I, my friend.
That is basically why I decided to get this journal....I used to keep one years ago...ended up burning it without even reading through it. Was too painful at the time...think it did me a world of good to watch it go up into flames, however...haha
I hope I don't have to torch my puter though...*smiling*
