New Years...  
First, I want to say that I really truly honestly and sincerely hope that your 2008 is your best year ever and holds nothing but wonderful things for you.



Beyond that, I HATE New Years. I really do. I give myself permission to eat lots of cheese and drink myself into NotHatingItAsBad, but if any of you like New Years and have a great point of view on it, I'd love to hear it. From pretty much the day after Christmas, this darkness starts creeping up on me, culminating on the 1st and it sticks for WEEKS afterwards. The entire week has been a countdown to Facing Stupid Reality, the eventual putting away of the decorations (or the eventual feeling of being-crazy-holding-onto-the-past of not putting away the decorations), trying to find a way to get a working vehicle, facing the fact I DON'T have a working vehicle, trying to do all the things I can't avoid getting done but are almost impossible without a vehicle, waiting for the eventual reappearance of the bugs, doing all the things I've been avoiding because It's The Holidays, etc. etc. etc.

Yes, some people celebrate surviving another year (Yay! I'm not dead yet 0_o) or the chance at a new beginning (which you can have any day you choose to, and I tend to just see as another calendar filled with You Must Accomplish More THINGS).

So, you people who love this holiday, please tell me why, because I honestly want to see it your way. I don't want to loathe this holiday more than any other on the planet. Share??

May your journey out of winter's claws be reasonably short, my friend. And safe, too.

I feel your heaviness - we are much alike, you know. All the best for the New Year!!

Nothing but good stuff for your New Year, too.

And it's not so much the Winter, being in Cali and all, as it is the workload and expectations...

Yes, I know - 'winter' is a clumsy metaphor since you live in the Sunshine State - but I still know how you feel. *hugs*

I suppose it's sort of like learning to ride a bike all over again, eh? The first few bits are the hardest.

So strange, this feeling
Today I actually feel almost happy; I have upped my Prozac from 2 pills to 3 for a couple of weeks, and now the effect appears to kick in. Even if it may not last, today has been a Good Day - and it's been SO long since I've felt reasonably normal. It has been so good for me not to feel left to my own devices, as you and Martin have been available for me. Thank you dearly.

Re: So strange, this feeling
Did you decide or your shrink decide to up your dose? And did you go down to the shrink office and demand someone new today?

BTW, very cute pic.
