Who? You

What? Pity party for me

When? Now.

Where? My place.

Why? I’m sick and laying in bed feeling worthless. I haven’t gotten out of bed in 6 hours and I’m on my 3rd movie of the weekend (and it’s only Saturday). My ears are so plugged up that the volume on the tv is set to level 26. Boo. Pity party for me.


pity party turned ok.

I wrote this today at the beginning of my lunch break (I find it soothing and helpful to write out my feelings when I’m frustrated):

I’ve been having a pity party for myself all day long. I’ve been on the verge of tears since I woke up and no matter how hard I try, I can’t put on a happy face. I’m having a hard time seeing the bright side of things even though rationally, I know everything is fine and dandy. Despite my best effort, I can’t rally. I’m spent.

At the time I wrote this, I had no hopes of my day turning around. I didn’t think it was possible. So, I IM’d Derek and asked if he wanted to meet for lunch…and he did. By the time lunch was over and I was walking back to work, I was cured! Complete attitude reset. I’m so relieved – I hate having bad days – they are too exhausting.

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
