Taking a Step

Readers of this space will know that I have struggled recently with coping with life in general. I’ve always had periods where I struggled with anxiety and worry. I’ve had down moods, but I always just coped with it, powered through and moved on. The last few years, I’ve found it harder and harder to…

Running or Walking Away

As a bonus post today a share of two posts that reflect how I’m feeling right now. It is a particularly bad mental health day for me today and I still have 45 minutes before I clock into work. This has been a long week and it’s only Wednesday. Dreams of Running Away https://theycallmetater.com/2018/01/05/dreams-of-running-away/ In…

I’m Done Again

I never intended this blog to be so much of me talking about my problems. I meant to only write about my thoughts on the world. Current events, TV, books, etc. I did that quite a bit in the beginning with a little bit of my personal life sprinkled in. I did posts about my…

See You On the Other Side

I am taking a vacation. A vacation from work. A vacation from the room I’ve been sitting in for 4 months. A vacation from the news. A vacation from social media. A vacation from the blog. I wish the picture below was current vacation me. I’m going to make an effort to get there mentally…

Ready for a Break

I woke up this morning already stressed and anxious before my day really even started. My dog woke me up around 6AM as usual. I tried to go back to bed and get more sleep since I am working the 4-8 shift at work tonight. I think I dozed a little, but I can’t turn…

Self Doubt

Tuesday Mood

I need to stay away from social media. I need to retire and figure out a way to get paid for writing random things from my house. I need to stop watching the news. Please enjoy the following images of my mood right now.

The Never-Ending Wall

I wrote earlier that I had hit the wall during the lockdown. I hoped it was a one day blip. It was not. I took the day off that Friday and gave myself a three day weekend. For those three days I was pretty much OK. I did some cleaning and yard work to not feel…

I’m Tired

I’m still at the wall hitting stage this week. I’m seriously considering asking for the day off on Friday even though I work from home just to not have to think about anything but what I’m going to watch on TV next. I’m tired of working from home when all of the work I’m best…

Hitting the Wall

I have two different ideas for blog posts that I workshopped in my head over the weekend. I was all ready to wake up and write before my workday started. Instead, I seem to have hit a wall today. I had a good weekend. I took a lazy day Saturday. I did crossword puzzles. I…
