Today is one of those days..

Today is one of those days. I have not felt like doing anything. I have simply sat at one place and stared at the wall, trying to blank out my mind. Maybe I have also stared at my computer screen, unseeing. Thinking, thinking, thinking. The whys in our life don't let us live. Whenever I had such phases, books helped me out of it. This time, I have not been able to reach out for any book. I simply stand in front of my bookshelves and walk away from it after a while.

I even went out for a few hours but even then my mind was not in it. I wanted to get back and be on my own. Now that I am on my own, I seem to be more troubled than I was before. I am writing poetry. That's about the only good thing about this state. I won't call it depression. Because it is not going to last more than few more hours. Until then, I suppose I will dwell in self pity!

Any help from anyone? I have tried to listen to music, watch a movie, read blog posts, gone out, even did some cooking, solved math puzzles and wrote poetry. What else am I supposed to do?

Sorry that you're feeling down today. I know the feeling well. I think that's one of the reasons I have so many hobbies - when I'm down in the dumps, I can always find a hobby (or one of my collections) to concentrate on and that usually lifts me up after a while. Hope you find something to make things a little brighter soon!

I normally like to spend a lot of time alone, but when those times come to me I've found that being around people really helps.

I also play my flute when I'm in those moods. It helps me dump out some emotion without having to put things into words - kind of cathartic.

I hope you bounce back soon!

I am feeling the same but I am sure it is because I am overwelmed with life, work, personal obligations and responsibilities etc. I actually think for the 1st time in my life I may be depressed and it is killing me to embrace that.

I think breathing in the fresh air should help and exercise too.

Try visiting the elderly. Do you have an older relayive who could stand a little tea and company. A short visit to take you out of yourself. Maybe a neighbor. Sometime our hobbies are poor substitutes for real human contact.
Blessings to you.
