Sunday and a Bit Better

For the last several weeks I have been in a very bad mental state.  It might be seasonal affective disorder, or it may be that I have just been too damn busy with a boatload of crap I did not cause but have the requirement to fix at work.  It really doesn't matter the root cause.  But today, I was able to clear my head a little bit and I think I feel as if I am going to be on an upward swing as far as my mood goes.  I hope I can keep the focus I have to keep things in this happier state.  I sure as hell hope so.  For the moment, as far as my pipes go, I am going to give myself a bit of a break.... no longer am I going to beat myself up over every pipe.  I am going to work at reducing, because I want to quit, but managing to keep a focus on being happier in life is the most important thing at the moment.

My mood goes to hell for a few days every three weeks or so, and when I say "to hell," I mean it. And that’s with anti-depressants. Of course, I also take narcotics, and they tend to cancel out the anti-depressants and leave one forever fluctuating between euphoria and almost suicidal depression.

I’m here because I saw your comment on BBC. I figure that anyone who likes him has enough of a screw loose that I’ll probably like them.

Still walking daily? Getting enough nooky? Getting enough sunshine?

Anit-depressants, hell, Snow should toss them and just cowboy up.

“Anit-depressants, hell, Snow should toss them and just cowboy up."

Do you regard all meds as a sign of moral weakness or only psychoactive meds?

BBC makes an excellent point.

I also was once a drug addict until BBC inspired me to toss them out and fly straight.
