Recently, I’ve been fighting “the funk.” Not a sickness, per se, but the deep blues feeling.
I think that there’s both an upside and a downside to the computer. I enjoy being “connected” to my friends in Washington, Texas, Oklahoma, etc all the time. The downside is — they aren’t here. I can’t go walking downtown with them or out to dinner with them. I never have to dress up for them… but I never get to dress up for them. I LOVE Stillwater. A ton. Still, we haven’t found a church that fits us yet and most of the mom programs I’ve found are breaking for summer.
I know this is just a short season. I know that eventually I will find some friends in Stillwater soon. So, I get on Facebook and Twitter a lot and sometimes I feel like I’m so… insignificant. My voice is limited to characters and clicks on a keyboard.
I’ve suffered from depression before and I want to avoid that at all costs. I know I’m not there (nowhere near that), but I also know heading things off before they escalate is important.
Am I the only one that goes through this? What do you do to fight it?
