mostly cloudy

After I’ve been quiet for a while, it’s even harder to sit down and write. Every time I try to write, or even just compose in my head, it comes out all whiny and feeling sorry for myself. I just don’t want to go there. So I’ll be back. Soon.

  1. Hope you’re feeling better soon, Zazzy. Sometimes writing it out helps make you feel better. We won’t care if you sound whiny if it makes you feel better! In other words sometimes a little whine with the cheese is a perfectly OK thing. And sometimes absolutely necessary. Take care of yourself!

    1. Thank you Maura. There’s nothing wrong with a good vent or a cleansing cry or even a good old fashioned pity party. I’m just not in the mood. All I really want is for this to pass. It’s playing a stupid game with me right now – and I’m really, really tired.

  2. I find the same thing happens to me. Enjoy your time away from blogging. Perhaps this time you’ll return refreshed and renewed. It could happen! 😉

    1. I often think I just don’t have enough in my life to write about. And I just got the bill for my hosting – how does $4.95 per month end up costing $143.88 per 12 months? I can’t afford this anymore. I’m going to have to do something different.

  3. I love reading your blog and thoughts, but being exhausted and in pain doesn’t make you want to write much. Sometimes I get out of the mood to blog, then something happens to kick start a post. (unfortunately, it’s usually not anything positive) xoxo

    1. Oui, c’est vrai. When I used to write poetry, I noticed that depressing laments rang more honest and true than anything positive and cheerful. I think blogging is a little like that sometimes. Maybe I’m just not good at light and cheerful.

  4. Funny I woke up thinking of you this morning and that you hadn’t blogged for a while, and then there you are in the inbox. Sounds like you need a change of scene! Is there any opportunity for a visit somewhere or a few days away, or does the pain and exhaustion make that difficult or impossible? If you were able to change your surroundings for a (short) while, might that help? There would be fodder for the blog. Hope you feel better soon, either way.

    1. Well, I’m supposed to be having surgery on Monday – does that count? Typically it’s challenging to go places and maybe I will write about some of these issues but again, whine whine whine. 🙂

  5. I agree with Maura — “We won’t care if you sound whiny if it makes you feel better!” — and Polly — ” Is there any opportunity for a visit somewhere or a few days away.” Like most of us, I’m on speaking terms with self-pity, so I understand how it makes you want to dig a hole and jump in. The only remedy I’ve ever found is to get immersed in something, anything, that’s not about me. I have a friend who, in searching for something to divert her attention from herself, started answering questions for Yahoo Answers. The questions posed on this website range all over the place, from “My sister is a bully…should I go to her wedding anyway?” to “How do I unlock my iPhone 4?” Anyone can post an answer, and my friend got a lot of satisfaction in answering questions for, especially, teens who are often dealing with those first awkward social problems. You know the ones, the social problems that never, ever go away. Feel better!

    1. Thanks Pam, I thought about it. I thought that I could write it out and then I don’t even have to publish it, just get it out. I started and honestly, it was not making me feel better. But at this point, I feel like I’m playing cat and mouse with you, my bloggy friends.
