Have you ever had one of those days (or several in a row) that you just feel overwhelmed by everything that usually would be managable? I am having a couple days like this. I am exhausted, my house looks like a tornado went through it, and I am completely unmotivated. Lately it seems like my girls can make a mess faster than I can pick it up anyway. I even have plans to go to my friends house for tea tonight and I don’t want to go. This isn’t pms week but it is sucking all the same. Maybe it is the weather? It is getting cold here and I hate winter. Maybe the fact that DH’s sister is in the hospital has me stressed out. I don’t know. Can anyone relate to the “for no particular reason blahs”?

I feel like shit.
I figure that because of the weather I am down in the dumps.
It doesnt help that I have been having random chest pain all week. Ugh.
Here is to us feeling better.

Yup.. right there with you.
I don’t think I’ve been dressed before 2pm any day this week. Usually just in PJs on the couch.
I need to clean the apartment and get prepared for a Christmas party we’re hosting this weekend, but I cannot get motivated.
I hate the cold and have a bit of a chesty cough at the moment. I just want to hibernate.

I get like this sometimes…I hate it! It’s like you can’t quite pinpoint where it is coming from. I just try to remember what is going right in my life, and frequently my Darling Husband makes me go see friends even if I don’t feel like it- usually it helps. But more often than not, I just stay curled up on my couch watching trash T.V., and get absolutely nothing done!
I’m sorry you’re feeling like this!

I was like that all last week at work. I started the week so excited because I could not wait for my trip on Saturday but then Tuesday – Thursday I was in a miserable, unmotivated mood for no reason. I hate when I get like that. It happens to me in the winter usually because I hate cold weather. I hope you feel more like yourself soon!

Thanks ladies. I hope this passes quickly too. It is a should have stayed in bed kind of day.

@MrsFuzzyFace: I felt very anxious Monday night. I wanted to break down and cry. My heart was racing as well. I have no idea why either.
I’m feeling a little better, but not too much. Still feel a bit anxious.

I’ve totally been there before….but my moods tend to last for a week or two at a time (I’m gonna go ahead and blame the rainy Seattle weather and the fact that I won’t see a non-rainy day until probably April). Ugh. I’ve gotten behind on keeping in touch with family. I got mostly done decorating for Christmas, then lost steam somewhere and left random decoration boxes around my house. I left a clean load of laundry in my dryer for a whole week (finally put it away last night!). And today was the first time in two weeks I’ve actually blow-dried my hair instead of putting it up in a frumpy bun for work. I’m ready for winter to be over!!!

@MrsFuzzyFace: I’ve defffffinitely had days like that. It sucks. It’s on those days I really wish I had some happy pills! Oh, and magically-get-the-motivation-to-clean-my-house pills!

@CarolinaCola: I need the start baking, finish shopping, and cleaning pills myself. I hate that I’m not off this weekend, but I’ll survive. I have three nights off before Christmas Eve then off Christmas night. Can’t wait.

This has been me the past two days too.
Unexpected costs are coming with our new house. More work too. The contractor installed the wrong front door and I feel bad telling him I hate it, instead I’m going to come down the stairs every morning for the next 10 years and look at the door I hate.
My new car is in the shop, warranty work, but they gave me a loaner car and it’s just not as nice, plus they won’t let me put my little dog in it so he has to stay home by himself.
I haven’t been to the gym in 2 weeks and I can no motivation to get my butt there.
Our condo has been on the market for 2 months and nobody has looked at it. We are going to have 2 mortgages forever.
I spent an extra $100 yesterday for the special eye exam to get contacts, just to remind myself why I never had contacts before, I hate them and begin to have a mild panic attack when I think I can’t get them out.
I think these combined are making me feel blah. I’m hoping the meh feelings are gone when I wake up tomorrow, I’m normally a very happy person!

This was me last week. I was so overwhelmed with everything, I cried. Work was crazy; I was being pulled in every direction possible. My work got behind, because of all the meetings I had to attend. Then the intern yelled at me, because I didn’t have time to help her out. Then I had to come home and worry about wedding stuff, christmas stuff, and house stuff. It was awful. Not even a pint of Ben and Jerry’s helped me get out of my funk 🙁

Yes as of last week I was seriously depressed for a whole month and totally unmotivated. I’m JUST now starting to get back on track with watching what I eat (sorta), working out, and doing chores like I was before.
