I feel like knocking my head against the wall...

Just woke up. I can’t breath. Great tenison. In the chest. Can’t do work. Wonder why. Life sucketh. Feel gloomy. No idea why. Life seems so meaningless. Yet it was fun the day before. Maybe a few knocks on the head. Will do great wonders. ARGH~

Hey, buddy - are you OK?


I feel like a trap waiting to be sprang. Moody, crabbly, grumbling, lazy, blue and the terrible thing I have to pretend that everything is all right 'cos I meeting the employer I am freelancing for later. I just don’t have the motivation to do anything. I feel so tense that I could hardly breath.

I hate reading posts like this - they always make me feel as though I should be doing something helpful. It’s possible that I worry too much, but whatever.

Hang in there, and try to relax somehow - maybe do some deep breathing exercises or take a warm bath? Listen to some light music? Eat some spaghetti? Go punch your pillow around a little?

Good luck - I’m off to bed, but check in later, OK, and let me know you’re all right?

If your mood swings continue for more than a couple of weeks, you probably should see a physician.

When I’m in a funk, I listen to the blues. Amazingly, it helps! I also made a tape of pieces that cheer me up.

Exercise may help. Just don’t be too hard on yourself. It will probably change by tomorrow or the day after.

I know how you feel. Life for me sometimes seems futile and I often lose any motivation I have. I’ve got my own personal philosophies to thank for that, but I won’t hijack your thread with a rant. I’m currently looking looking for some input in regards to my own “life sucketh” quandry over here. The only advice I can give you is to try and figure out what it is that will make you happy and go for it. That, or become resigned to a life of disappointment and frustration. :frowning:
