I'm taking the day off

Whilst checking some posts from last May I realized that I am in nearly the same shape (emotionally) as I was a year ago.
But a year ago I went and got anti-anxiety medication from the doctor and spent six weeks adjusting to the side-effects. And then I stopped taking the medicine a few months later.
I'm not doing that this year, though I have some of the same anxieties (K's work, many events to wrangle, concerns for my family), I never felt like myself during that time.
I'm not one of those people who catalogue and list all they've had to deal with and complain about it, but I will say it's been a heck of a few weeks. I'll also say that good things are on the horizon.

So, today, while I catch up on housework, I suggest you hit the archive.

I'll see you later.

Must be something in the pollen - feeling the same. Peace to you.

Sadly, I'm good at catalogging and complaining. (see blog entry number one through present...)

Wishing you calm days until Wellfleet...

I've talked to dh about this a few times recently. There's definitely a pattern to the end of school year activities, a crazy calendar, and my emotional well-being. I'm edgy, anxious, and not a really nice person to be around on some days. I've seen it unfold exactly the same way around here the last few years and I'm guessing there are many more years of it to come.

I have to keep reminding myself, "This too, shall pass." (Even though I ranted about my crazy week on my blog.)

I'd like to remind you, my feathered friend; This too, shall pass.

Everybody needs an archive day every now and then! Blessings and peace to you, bb.

Take as much time as you need. You won't lose us.

You poor thing, I would never have guessed, you don't come across anxious at all! Rock on, I was just explaining to my husband that being happy doesn't cost more than being unhappy, and it is so much more sensible to be happy.

I admit I thought about you and how you must have been lately.
I noticed something wasn't 100%.
Don't ask me how.
But you know I am always thinking of you.

Giant hugs from across the miles.

Be well, bb.

Enjoy your day off. You've more than earned it.

A break is a good thing.
See you on the other side.
Melissa said…
Take care! You deserve a break and your archives are fascinating.

Sending calming (and medicated, for nearly 20 years, but no untoward side effects, thank FSM) thoughts your way. Peace.

Ugh, I was *there* last summer, although I didn't think I was until events brought me to the doctor.

Hope you find something to help you...soon!

Enjoy your day!

Don't know what it is, but it's definitely in the air...feeling very similar - I think it has something to do with May - kids field trips, wrapping up the school year, spring fever, etc., etc., etc. All this "renewal", while beautiful, is sometimes overwhelming..take as much time as you need..I'll look forward to your insight, flare and style upon your return.

Paid leave well deserved.

I don't think I can go into the archives though....I can barely keep up with the currents :)

2 glasses of wine, a Twix bar, and call me in the morning.

Hang tough, chickadee.

Thinking of you.

A toast, then. To good things on the horizon.

Tangential perhaps - but you know where I'm coming from...I'm over here now...and I love you. L.


Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth. . . Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it. - John Templeton
Well you KNOW I can empathise.

Love to you and as you have said to me - whatever you are feeling , whatever you wish to express , I am here.

As my friend Holland likes to say, May is the new December. We are all wrung completely dry by the end of it. Just keep paddling for summer.
