    Re: What do the simple folk do?

    When I have the blues I like to listen to the most depressing music I can possibly find and just wallow in it for a few days. Then, I like to read books and spend time with Jr. Miss Sunnygirl, snaps me right out of it.

    Re: What do the simple folk do?

    VERY timely thread.

    I've been in a MAJOR mood for about a week. Kinda depressed about a lot of stuff in my world.

    Ive been keeping to myself when it comes to some of my friends, not doing anything of real importance at home. Basically just vegging out. I hate it and I rarely get this way. If it was cool outside I'd be taking hot baths to relax but since its been 386º outside practically every day baths aren't in the forecast. Kind of an emotional rollercoaster where you wanna do this to your coworker one minute cry then next then yell at anyone who crosses your path

    Prozac anyone????

    prozac isn't strong enough.... maybe a LOBOTOMY


    Grandma's body isn't doing as well has her mind. She still at the convalesce home and I not sure how to plan for her care while I have my hernia repair and am in the hospital next week. I don't like the fact that both of my grandma's aren't as healthy has I need them to be to, so they can live forever. Since I have never been with out them very close.
    Distraction isn't working since I still have a messy house, bills to pay and PMS to top it off. this SUCKS!!!!

    Re: What do the simple folk do?

    I read. Fiction, preferably. I vent to anybody that will listen. I write in my online journal so I can delete the post when my mood improves. The emails and posts tend to get shorter and shorter as the energy gets sent away. In part I get tired of talking about the annoying stuff and I want something happy to talk about!

    Or go to Disneyland! I've been in a fairly major funk this summer. I mean, it usually hits me about now, and this year is a whopper. Yuck. It comes and goes some, but it always comes back.

    So tonight I read my book and tomorrow I go to Disney. Oh, and I will completely avoid CostCo until my mood improves. That place is guaranteed to peeve me even on a good day. Too bad the prices are unmatched. It's just such an annoying place!

    Re: What do the simple folk do?

    What was it that Audrey Hepburn called the terrible blues in Breakfast at Tiffanys? I think she called them the "Mean Reds".

    Well, I totally understand. I've had several bouts with the Mean Reds this year. Usually when work gets bad and then some personal issue pops up at the same time. When you have nowhere left to decompress, you get the Mean Reds.

    Getting over them is a bitch too. Nothing seems like it will work, but then one day you wake up and you say @$%# it, I'm tired of feeling this way and I just don't care any more. Whatever happens, happens. And then you feel better.

    Although a pint of Ben and Jerry's and a trip to Bananna Republic doesn't hurt.

    Re: What do the simple folk do?

    Yes! Ben and Jerry's, anything chocolate, and good music. I personally practice my own personal form of Zen Meditation which helps. There is a book I read a few years ago when my life was going through a rough patch,(almost divorced) I can't remember the author (its in the bedroom, hubby is snoozing) but it is like my bible now. I have two copies, one I keep and one I lend out. There is a chapter where it talks about being a mountain, how the world goes on around it, it rains, the wind blows, people and animals come and go and still the mountain just is. I did a line drawing of a mountain that I keep with me at work, to remind myself to "Be the Mountain" when I need to. Tomorrow I will dig out the book and let you know the title and author. It was a great help to me.

    Re: What do the simple folk do?

    Taking a long hard 50+milebike ride when the tinme allows and Im feeling down. Just to get the blood pumping instead of sittubg around thinking about it, I gt it out on the bike. I tell you I have had some epic rides that are not only scenic, but also fast without knowing it.

    But you know what the best is when my wife comforts me when the day is done or a good friend.
