I hate to complain...but

I might be suffering from a mild depression...
can't sleep & have no appetite to eat(so unlike me!)
Could it be the 'toxic chemicals' that I've been using to clean the flood?!
errr-errr ???
All I know is that I'm taking a few days off from work
and perhaps this blog as well. Got to take care of me-myself & I first!
Thank you for your kind understanding everyone~
~XOXO*

That's understandable, Lenore. What happened to your home was stressful, so it stands to reason that you might be suffering from a minor dose of post-traumatic stress disorder.

So take naps, give yourself permission to eat good dark chocolate (excellent for mood upliftment due to serotonin release in the brain), eat healthily when you feel like eating and, above all, take care of you!

get a full spectrum light bulb and sit under it for a little while.

There's a reason why so many people get the winter blues- and even if you've got the blues for other reasons it'll still help.


hope you feel better soon!

Shaddy said...

It sounds like we're both in the same boat, although you have better reasons for being down in the dumps than I.

I'm so happy that you're looking out for yourself; you're extremely wise in doing so.

Jan said...

Not at all surprised you're feeling down after what happened.
Yes. Give yourself a break !
love & hugs xxx

TERI REES WANG said...

Immediately after the holidays, I was laid out flat with plain old Nausea.

I lived off:
Fresh grated ginger,
Fresh squeezed lemon in warm water and honey.
...you can an cayenne, clove and/or cinnamon, even turmeric, to help raise your heat levels, and detox out.

Be well.

Poetikat said...

Everybody needs a little time off from everything, Lee Lee.
You take good care of yourself and as for toxic chems; I never use them! Big jugs of vinegar - that's the key. It will clean up anything (add to dish soap to clean your bath, add to baking soday to clean stains on surfaces...it is a miracle solution!)

Luv,

Kat

Oh dear Lenore! So sorry you're feeling blue....it's very good that you're taking some time off - time to recharge those wonderful batteries of yours....May I reccommend watching back to back "Mad Men" or something similar?...with lots of gorgeous foodie treats thrown in aswell to get your appetite up ...and round the clock cuddles from pugs. Thinking of you sweetie and hope for a speedy recovery...XXXOOO's Sam.

mistress maddie said...

Lenore, I'm sure it is a combo of everything hitting you at once. You should wrap up with a very stylish movie or two, a fine wine, and relax I say, and come back when you damn well feel like it! Take care. Tootles.

The Cottage Cheese said...

amy @ switz~art said...

I missed this...so sorry!
I really hope you are okay, missy. I have had bouts of depression, and it's not easy. But there are always brighter days. This time of year does not help at all...that's what I find. Please know that you brighten many people's days with your amazing posts...you are funny, classy, real and smart as hell. Don't ever forget it! Sending you hugs, my dear!

I hope that things are a little better for you. We all have these moments and I think that when we go through them we have to take a time-out for ourselves - we have to nurture ourselves. xo
