Bored and Depressed

Having a case of BB, Blogger's Block. I don't have anything cohesive to say at this moment. I'm just working on getting over a bit of depression. Life can truly be a bitch. I feel that I am just sitting around, waiting to die, wishing it would come faster so the pain can end.

I need to break out of this cycle. I made myself get out of the house over the weekend to ease the depression a bit. Otherwise, I would have just sat home getting more depressed. It helped. I'm not as negative. I'm now on the questions of "what do I want?" and "what do I need to do to get what I want?" and "am I willing to do what I need to do to get what I want?"

I know I'm not the first person or the only person to have to answer these questions but that doesn't make it easier to deal with.

Sorry to be so down in the dumps. Just trying to go through a bit of catharsis. Blogging always helps, right? Besides, I'm sure some of you will cheer me up with some comments, right?

I hope you all are well.

Awww, I'm sorry you're feeling crappy lately. I have definitely been there. What helped for me was finding things that made me happy and throwing myself completely in them. And time. And good friends. And lots of alcohol.

I hope something perks up your spirits soon.

Hey, my blog is also being stifled by depression, wanna meet me at the FSK bridge for a double suicide? :0

SP hopes you can bounce back from this. Your entries are missed.

I feel where you are. I was feeling like that all last week (you know it comes and goes but it's been a while since I felt that low). It takes time and really a change of perspective (as hard as that is to do). Think of where you want to be and start making plans to get there. Simply applying to another job can make me feel better. Watching a good movie, going shopping (if you have the money), exercising. It's good you got out the house. That's the first thing to do. Staying in can trap you into never getting better.

Oh, that's so sad -- I hope you feel better very soon. I'd been having a bit of BB myself, then was all of a sudden stricken with 4 blog ideas at once. Fortunately, there is enough tomfoolery in the world that pisses me off -- and anger has always been delicious fodder for my rants.

As for the depression, I'm glad you got out of the house. There is nothing like crisp winter air uppercutting you in the face to make you feel alive again. Personally, I like to try to identify and/or enumerate the likely sources of my frustation and develop a plan of action to attack.

If that doesn't work, then I just pound it out on my heavy bag or just scream at the top of my lungs one good time. Anything that can help is welcome, right? Good luck -- we all look forward to the day when you blog about being un-depressed.

You are not alone. Many of us have delt with depression, me included. Good job taking the first step, leaving the house. Fresh air and sunlight work wonders.
