I’m right there with you, so hoping for some good pick-me-ups from other Bees. I have Canadian chocolate here at my desk, but I’m too depressed to go downstairs and work out so I’m not allowed to eat any of the chocolate. Really I ought to go down and lift some weights, but I can’t think of anything I want to do less than that right now. Maybe I’ll do some actual work and feel productive? Or we could draw pictures … ?

Have an extra long workout while he’s gone. It usually helps after the fact.

For me I love going home to a hot chocolate, a hot water bottle and a comforting or vapid tv show. I give myself that hour or that two hours off. By off I mean, I go into holiday mode in my mind. I deep breathe and I relax my entire body. I cuddle up into the heat of of the hot water bottle and the soothing warmth of the drink and let my mind just cease for a while. Its like yoga but without any painful stretching. I tell myself ‘this is relax time. in this time nothing bad is happening, nothing bad is going to happen. I am safe, I am comfortable, I am warm and I am loved’ Then I write down a list of things to do. I have a fun list, a domestic list and a ‘goals’ list. These lists keep me focussed and forward moving. When I feel like my life is going nowhere I think about what i would change and why and when i would like to change it by. But at the same time I remember that even if nothing ever changed, I am far more blessed than I am cursed and there is hope and comfort and security in that. But tonight, relax, do your fun thing you do alone. Every one has something. Don’t beat yourself up. Its not productive. You are who you are. You are not your coworker. She has her cross to bear too. All you can do is live within your own skin. There is relief to be found in that. All you have to do is be you. And then distract, amuse and relax.

I grab a glass of wine, get a new ebook for my Kindle, and take a bubble bath. I’ll also go for long walks outside (preferably in the woods, by a lake, etc). I just need to get out somewhere that’s private, doesn’t require social interactions, and allows me to clear my mind.

MrsRevolutionize:  I’m sorry you’re having a rough time! 🙁

Everyone’s funk escapes are different, but I like to paint my nails, watch Game of Thrones (like you), exercise, do dishes (for some really this really fulfills me….Mostly having the kitchen clean I think), eat some thai food, take a shower, cross a thing or two off my to-do list…it depends.

There was a pretty controversial scene in this week’s episode. I take it you didn’t read the books? If you do you can tell it’s about to happen and fast-forward/mute and look away etc. Or maybe your FI would be willing to look ahead and warn you when it’s coming? The rest of the episode was a pretty fun one, it might help perk you up. Good luck!
