IWSG:Another Bad Half-Month

Back for another round of sharing our problems.

The end of October was much like the end of August for me, in that a lot of negative things happened. A death in the family, being stuck hours away from home and not getting back until nearly midnight (which happened two weekends in a row), sudden feelings of depression and wanting to be alone, and freaking cramps have been making things difficult. In short, I've been too busy, sick, or depressed to write, plus I've been avoiding most social media for days.

So the next few days (or maybe weeks) will be spent trying to catch up on writing and visiting people. And watching TV, because it makes me feel better and the Hulu episodes are going to expire soon.

I've got the blahs too. I just got over a terrible cold, but now it feels like another one is coming in. Hope you get things turned around.

Sarah Foster said...

Sorry things have been rough. I can definitely relate to all of those things. Hopefully things start to get better and you can get lots of writing done soon.

Stephen Tremp said...

Sorry to hear of your troubles. But it's a new month and I'm sending big thoughts of good things your way now!

Two colds in a row? Bleh.

I"m so sorry to hear about all your troubles. I sure hope the cramps go away and that all those annoying travel problems don't pop up again. Wishing you a smoother and happier November! :)

@ Lexa Cain
Thanks. The cramps have gone by now, but there's still some traveling to do. I just hope it'll be bearable.

Sorry to hear about the death in the family, and the depression and the blahs. We all get them at one time or another. Believe or not watching tv helps me too!! I hope the sun will come out and wash away the blues!!! said...

Sorry things are so rough for you right now. If watching TV makes it better, then that's what I'd go for. I hope things improve for you soon and you get some peace.

@ Cathrina Constantine
Thanks, though some literal rain wouldn't hurt around here.

@ Lori. L. MacLaughlin
Thank you.

Sorry to hear this. I can understand that feeling of being too down to be able to get on with things. Sometimes life throws too much at us and we need to slow down to be able to recover. Take care of yourself, the urge to write again will come back in time.

Sorry you've had to deal with deaths and some scary situations. (I wouldn't want either my wife or I out driving home that late.)
Keep the faith that it will get better.

T.F. Walsh said...

Really sorry to hear about the horrible time you're having, and I hope it starts improving very soon.

M.R. R. said...

@ WallCat
Here's hoping.

@ Alex J. Cavanaugh
It wasn't so much a dangerous situation (in both cases I was with friends, and in one case at a relative's house after it got dark) as my introversion kicking in. We had left early in the day and stressful situations like the car refusing to start or that we were at a memorial just compounded it. I just wanted badly to be at home.

@ T.F. Walsh
Thank you.
