Adoption-Free Blardy Blah

No adoption today—but I want to give a little context to my adoption posts, so I’m cheating a bit. 😉

I’m not doing that well right now. I’m not trawling for sympathy, I just want to explain. I spend most of my days doing nothing at all—I barely get dressed. I am brushing my teeth and taking my medication, but that’s more or less where it stops. I don’t have any editing work right now—publishing isn’t going so well this year, I am told by my contacts—and while I’ve applied for jobs in town (cashier or barista type stuff), the economy here is pretty bad, and I’m not finding anything.

For awhile, I think I was doing better, but I’m not now. It’s not as bad as it has been in the best—I’m not in any danger—but I’m not doing well, and I don’t really know what’s going to change that. I feel like I can force myself to be human and sociable for a few hours a week, but that’s it. I went to the grocery store the other day and just wanted to cry when I got home; I felt drained. I’ve decided to believe that I have mono.

Funnily enough, the cat couldn’t be more delighted that I’m doing poorly. He gets to sit on me whenever he wants, and I’m always around and not making noises.

  1. I’m really sorry to hear that you’re not doing well. I read every post you write, and I’m disheartened to hear that you’re feeling down. Adoption can be draining..for all of us I think. I too have been going through a slump of non-productivity. I’m truly sorry you’re feeling this way- and I hope you feel better soon. Treat yourself to some relaxing days- don’t *aim* to be productive. Get some expensive tea, watch a movie- maybe some “you” time will help. If there is anything I can offer please don’t hesitate to ask me 🙂

    hugs & well wishes.
