Writing Though I Don’t Feel Like It – Another Ramble
Posted Nov 11 2009 10:03pm
I’m feeling a little…hmmm…I don’t even know what this feeling is. Lazy, bored, tired, numb? I don’t know and I hate that I don’t know, I am not good with not knowing. So what do I know?
I’m not sleeping more than 4 hours a night and that’s never good. I mopped the hallway and kitchen at 1:45 this morning; 0dd for me.
I’m not writing the way I had been. I’ve been trying to write something with meaning, with purpose – that’s been fruitless. I have pumped out some poetry which I haven’t done for years. It’s all a little depressing but pretty vivid, maybe someone will enjoy it. I’m whining. I don’t like whining; sadly I do it well and all too frequently.
I have a writing class today and no inclination to attend – oh look, it’s me not finishing something – AGAIN (my mother’s voice is swirling in my head- told ya, she sings). Crap, I don’t like to prove her right; it’s annoying.
I’m in physical pain – that’s at least as bad as not sleeping.
I’ve been laid off and the worry about money is vague but it’s there. My husband is stressed about his job, which I try not to take on but it’s difficult.
So whooo hooo, it’s a list of my triggers: chronic pain, lack of sleep and money issues. Toss in the fact that the tonsillectomy has created some food issues (I still can’t taste some foods and other food tastes weird) and all I need is some sort of abandonment and I will fall off the deep end. Yet, I don’t feel depressed. Hell, I don’t really feel anything substantial – WHAT IS THIS?
I want to go to sleep until I will wake up and feel better. Too bad I know that the only way to beat this feeling is to not go to bed and ignore life. Blah! I really wish these feelings would just take care of themselves. I don’t feel like taking care of anyone right now – especially not someone as needy as I can be.
I’m heading to bed – don’t judge me – I can take care of that myself.
Hope you have a good, productive day. –Bipolar Chick the Sleepless Wonder
