Struggling..

The past few days I am finding myself struggling again.

I know things are bad when all I want to do is sleep again which is where I am at at the moment. It is not sleeping at night though, I am sleeping most of the day which means I am awake until 4-5 am.

Besides 3 visits to the vets this week I have done nothing all week!

Didn’t even make the training day for the time to change event next weekend which was held Thursday.

I am thoroughly bored of everything in my life, sick of playing the same damn Xbox game, as I only have one.

Sick of always being tired.

Sick of having no motivation

Sick of being in pain 24/7

I need to start my training for the 10k run in 4 months but I can’t run without agonising pain in my fucked knee.

The best way to describe how my knee feels is like it is hanging by a thread. Imagine an elastic band that has been pulled and is slowly tearing, that is how my knee feels just walking let alone the additional strain of attempting to run!

It seems the more I try to do to improve my health, the worse I make things!

And worse of all is that I cannot turn to Teresa for her words of comfort, support and wisdom and it is really hurting me.

Even posting new photos of Lilybet on Facebook gets me down because I keep expecting her to comment, or I am waiting for a message to come through from her. Endlessly refreshing my messages especially around midnight my time as thats when we would speak most of the time.

I know its only been a couple of weeks since she passed but it has hit me hardest the past week. I feel guilty for feeling so much grief because I feel selfish that is has affected me so much when I was only a friend online as opposed to her family who are suffering much more real pain. But I cant help it it has torn me up inside.

I guess I just became too dependent on her and now I feel like I have no one to turn to, especially in terms of sharing my innermost thoughts.

So tried exercise, doesn’t work

Tried writing, cant write anything!

Tried helping others, I am probably not much help at the moment.

Tried taking my mind off things by promoting books, my freebie day did at least ensure 75 copies were “sold” so hopefully it may increase sales of other books but I doubt it.

SO what else is there to do?

Seems like wallowing is the answer but I sure as hell hope it doesn’t last long as I can’t afford to wallow in self pity as I will end up in a terrible state – just when I thought I was on the mend!

The thing with depression is it allows you to think you’re doing great then it comes back and kicks your backside all over the place!

  1. sometimes, I let myself just sleep the days away when I need to. Feeling guilty for not being as productive as you should can make depression even worse. I think of it as a time, which I deserve to take a rest from the world and all it’s problems. But then eventually, we have to get up lol. It seems that with me, I do get back up there after a break and I feel better. xx

  2. There is no “only” to internet friendship. You and Teresa got very very close. Don’t diminish that because it was online rather than in person. I can relate to the sleep thing. Hey, I’m up right now and probably will be for a while yet if you want to talk! xx

  3. Don’t give up on cyber friendships they can be very comforting and happy places to be. Stay strong….I and my computer have both been receiving care and attention and I am pleased to say I can now read and comment again. Long may it last…….

  5. I know how you are feeling! It´s not easy and being tired all the time, Some days I cant do nothing because I want to sleep.

  6. I hope you are feeling a bit better. You have every right to be upset. A friendship is a friendship no matter how it is formed
