I’m stressed, possibly depressed, and my reading/reviewing has suffered
June 14, 2013 § 2 Comments
So I’ve been reading less and less and enjoying even fewer activities. Last weekend’s trip to Vicksburg, Mississippi (which I chronicled here) was a very welcome break. Knowing that I’m taking a couple of days off in mid-July and then might be able to leave the job at the beginning of August when the school year begins at times provides the only grips for my sanity after some spells. So while I had planned on reviewing a lot of books this month in order to compensate for fewer posts during the spring due to working two jobs, it looks like I’ll be writing only a few posts here and there when energy permits it. But maybe I’ll be stronger for this; I know I’m doing better than I did several years ago during the last spell of stress-and-medication-induced depression.
Now if only I could see more frolicking squirrels. Those creatures make me think very happy thoughts.
