Re: Just totally frustrated.. ugh

I mystery shop too! Well, not so much anymore with 2 kids, but I loved it when I did it! It supplemented our income, wasn't full time tho!

Are you sure it's not depression? The things you mentioned are all symptoms. Sleeping more than usual, angry/frustrated more than usual, lacking passion, feeling "blah," Those are HUGE clues. Can you talk to your dr about it? See a counselor or get a Rx for prozac or something??

At the very least, MAKE yourself exercise 30minutes every day to try to kick this. And watch your nutrition, too!

I have depression and what you described sounds VERY familiar to me. PM me if you'd like . . .

Re: Just totally frustrated.. ugh

Maybe some herbal supplements/vitamins? When I feel that way I start the St. Johns wort and go get an hour massage and a pedicure. Stops the slump. And also what Holly said, sometimes I feel like that because I get "disconnected" with my husband. A short weekend away or even a night out can do wonders!

Hope you feel better soon!

Re: Just totally frustrated.. ugh

Hey girls!
If this was a more lasting thing, I would call it depression. I have been clinically depressed in the past, though, and this isn't even close to the same thing. When I'm depressed I don't eat (or eat constantly), don't leave bed, and get sick all the time (or pretend I am)......... and get violent and verbally abusive. LOL ( have a tendency towards manic depression)
Luckily I've not been that way for several years!


Anyway, thanks for all your help and hugs!
I believe I'm just in a slump right now.
I also get tired of the busy day-to-day things that I place upon myself to do (I'm out of the house doing stuff at least 2-4 hours every day).........


anyway! Thanks again
