Feeling a Bit Blah

I've had a couple of not terribly good days, and I'm feeling somewhat less than enthralled with Life just at the moment.

It didn't help that yesterday I had turned down a lunch invitation with some peeps that I actually would have liked to get together with and when I met up with the person I was supposed to be having lunch with she said "oh I can't possibly have lunch today I'm much too busy" as if it hadn't been her idea in the first place and oh what an intrusion I was on her busy schedule. Just... gee. Thanks for letting me know. And there were other things about our meeting that I won't elaborate, but that upset me and left me feeling like I just wanted to move to another planet. And some other stuff.

Then this morning, she phones again and I tell her that I'm not happy about the "other things" in our meeting and we have this long, frustrating, emotional, difficult conversation that left me feeling wrung out, and then some other things went wrong and ... oh blah blah blah.

Do you ever feel like you're just not somehow properly hooked up to the world? Someone I once knew and loved used to complain that the universe was designed against him, and I used to get mad at him about that, but I can actually now understand that feeling of just being disconnected. Not that things are actively Out to Get Me, but just that I don't know the passwords. Left out. Maybe that's why I was writing a while back about the "oh I'm so special" theme in SF, because I've always felt like I would have been the person on the sidelines watching while everyone else was chosen.

Maybe it's more than a bit blah. It's a lot blah.

But this, too, will pass, no doubt. Sigh. I think it would help if the sun would come out for more than about five minutes at a time.

Not prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be...

I've been feeling this pretty strongly lately. Like they changed the secret handshake and no one told me.

Re: Am an attendant lord
An attendant lord is exactly it - like on the sidelines looking on while everyone else knows all the right lines and moves.

Sorry that you're feeling the same way - perhaps it is something in the alignment of the planets?

Thank you! You are so right. AND the sun is shining, which is a big help. I don't know if I actively suffer from "SADS" but I notice that I do get affected by endless grey skies (well, who wouldn't?). I'm sorry you are in the same place I am; definitely let's hope we both feel better soon.

Hmmm . . . I'm in a bit of a state myself. Too restless to do anything, desperately needing the distraction that activity would bring, unable to speak to anyone, yet lonely.

If so many of us are feeling like this, then perhaps there is no middle and hence no sidelines?

I'd very much like to know what's happening re: your frustrating conversations with someone who couldn't have lunch . . .

Oh, maybe it really is something in the planets. "unable to speak to anyone, yet lonely" - yes. Exactly.

Re the person who couldn't have lunch... I really don't want to blog about it, but would love to talk about it - phone me??

K, I will. S and I are about to go out for most of the day, but I'll try you when I get home.

Oh, well, it must be something in the planets! Is the moon in Saturn?

And, yes, please, do count me in sometime on lunch plans - I was very sorry not to make it last time (especially, as I said, as I could in fact have made it if my "date" had let me know she had changed her mind!)

Oh WOW. My partner and I have been feeling the same way! I couldn't figure out what was up. We have just started the summer adventures, my kid is away for 6 weeks, and there are no dilemmas in our lives; yet, we have these sticky blues...

Yes, the sun has finally come. Just in time to hit the water for four nights! Gulf Island cure? I certainly hope so.

"Not that things are actively Out to Get Me, but just that I don't know the passwords." I have felt this way many times too. I am so sorry you are in that blue place. I think you are an amazing woman, I would be happy to be on that other planet with you, just so you wouldn't be alone.

Thank you :) Once again, I am convinced that there must be something in the stars. Or maybe it's just a zeitgeist thing... Anyway - hope your Gulf Island cure works its charms; I envy you! I'm back at work today :(
