The black eyed monster
For the past month or so, I'm afraid that my depression has been particularly bad. I'm managing it, but I'm afraid that there isn't all that much that can be done. Mostly it's a matter of finding things to do to stop myself from thinking.

Unfortunately this also means that I've been more avoidant of anything even slightly challenging and haven't been keeping up with a lot of things that I'd like to be doing but would cause me to become disheartened and down. Minor setbacks cause major distress when I'm in this state, so its best for me to not attempt many things rather than try and potentially fail. This in and of itself leads to feelings of failure and inadequacy, but for the time being damage limitation is the watchword.

Don't get me wrong. This sort of situation would usually cripple me, and I'm still gelting some things (like housework) done. This is just by way of explanation if I've seemed distant or inactive of late.

Hey sweetie, sorry you're going through a bad time right now. I have been very occupied with updating websites, so not incredibly social myself recently. Let's hope to meet up at some point in the not too distant future, but no pressure. Take care of yourself and yay for the doing of housework. I'm still smug after my catflap-cleaning extravaganza of yesterday.

Also, she can kill you with her brain.

(Firefly cures all ills...)

She can? With her actual brain? What's she gonna do, rip it out and throw it at me?

Hold it by my spinal cord and beat you to death with it.

Hah. No you won't If you're holding it you have no control over it, see how that works. You'll be lying on the floor twitching slightly as you strike to maintain your hold on the world's mankiest draft excluder. I'll be pointing and laughing.

That and it'll probably be a bit squished after meting out the same treatment to me. But let the poor woman dream :)

No-one fears being beaten to death with my Brain on a Chain. It's just not fair. So evil and still I get no respect.

Is that anything like the chain of command?
sesquipedality From: sesquipedality Date: March 11th, 2005 02:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes. Either you do what I say, or I shall beat you to death with my enormous brain.

aren't brains too squidgy to do much impact damage ? knocking people off balance or smothering them, maybe, but beating someone to death would take an awful lot of effort ( and probably require the victim to be restrained so they can't get away ) !

*sings*

"no-one respects you when you're eee-vil !

*hugs*

have you tried mental puzzles etc. They will stop you 'thinking' in the it will take your mind off it, but will stop your brain turning mushy and provide some satisfaction when you figure stuff out!

If you are interested - I have the perfect thing for you here & can send it down with chole via Sarah!

I'll be coming with Sarah and Merlin (who appears to be going through another spraying phase - sorry). (Merlin, not Sarah.)
jo_english_bint From: jo_english_bint Date: March 12th, 2005 10:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ok! will see you tomorrow then!

I'm glad Sarah isn't spraying - she might be thrwon out of the renactment fair!

Merlin is in hiding, but lovong fuss from us!

Hugs from the other side of the alley way! I am feeling much the same way, so will probably be of no use at all. Hope it improves for you.
