I've been in a foggy place lately. Outwardly, I am functioning - doing my job, cooking Thanksgiving dinner, even talking and laughing occasionally. But inside. I feel like I am trying to swim through something thick and viscous and gray.
Part of this is the time of year, which makes me feel even worse. Why does December do this to me? Not just me, from what I hear. I love the concept of holiday and cheer and soup and candles and presents...but the reality takes an energy I just don't have.
There are steps I should be taking to make myself feel better. Things proven, that work. Things that don't even involve me seeing specialists and getting new meds, which yes, I realize I am overdue on. Things like exercise, and meditation, and healthy foods, and sleep.
And tonight, whilst putting off yet another project I should be doing, I read a post by a favorite person I've never met. And I wanted to share it with any of you who might feel a similar depressive fog.
