After writing about anxiety and life events of the past week (post excerpted below), I took a few days away from blogging to get some rest. For the next few weeks, I really need to focus on events in my physical life. Please excuse me if it gets a little quiet around here. Thanks.
Life has been crazy lately. I seem to be two steps behind, no matter which direction I reach. As I result, I feel the stress and anxiety beginning to mount.
In fact, it is already mounted and is at a full gallop. I’m being
dragged behind the tallest imaginary Clydesdale horse I’ve ever seen.
I’m trying to find my feet.
Since the beginning of this year, life has been moving at lightning
speed. Some of it has been exhilarating, some of it has been
duty-bound. All of it has zapped my energy reserve and I’d like for it to slow down just a bit. So many tasks
accomplished, but still too many left undone with ends dangling loose.
Take writing a post, for example. I have started many started. I’ve
begun research on great topics. I’ve read hours of material and saved
countless pdf files on my computer for future reference. Yet, I’ve not
been able to complete them to be shared here on HealthCentral.
Can I be straight with you? I am underwhelmed with my ability to keep things under control lately. I am seeing the monster called depression
(usually stuck in the corner pouting because he can’t be set free) grow
braver and venture out of its cage to cause mischief and mayhem. (Side
note: the word mayhem makes me smile a bit. Reminds me of the car
insurance commercials with the “mayhem” character. Love those.)
