The blahs have struck

I have a major case of the blahs.

Everything I have been trying to deal with has finally started to get to me. I am not a negative person. But right now it is hard for me to see the positive in life. I guess that means I am normal, but I do not like feeling this way. Plus when I get stressed I don't sleep and that just makes everything worse.

I sat up thinking about a lot of things last night. My friend Mike, and how today is the one year anniversary of his death. How everyone in AL will be together celebrating his life tomorrow night. How I needed Jeff to be there for me last week when I needed to talk. How I wish I could take the time off work to be with my mom the whole time she is unable to work. She is going to have to have help, and my 16 year old sister has never cooked a meal or washed clothes in her entire life. There were about 500 other things going on in my mind as well.

I guess I am just feeling overwhelmed right now, and I also feel like I am alone.

My posts may not be as often as they were for the next few weeks, because I can't seem to think right now. I do not want to spew all the negative feelings on here everyday. I might lose the 5 followers I have! Hopefully though, I will be back to normal soon. Or as normal as I get anyway.

Jeff wants to go to one of the distilleries this weekend. Suppose it would be good to get out and do something while Daniel is not here. Anyone have suggestions on which one to go too?

Don't really have any suggestions, but just wanted to say hang in there!

Hang in there buttercup. Here's a link for you: http://www.kybourbontrail.com/#map

I've never been to any of them, but do know the people at Woodford Reserve are nice (used to do animal control work for them and they're nice folks.)

I know how you feel. I'm in my own case of the blah's too.

It'll all get better eventually. :)

Natalie,

I will be praying for you. You have a lot on your plate and it is definitely okay to have these feelings.

If you need a break or lunch sometime, I'm game.

That same feeling happens to me every February. Cut yourself some slack and have a cup of tea or coffee or something stronger-take 10 minutes and pamper yourself; it makes all the difference.
