Just One of THOSE days..

21 Nov

B was having one of those days yesterday where nothing seemed to peak his interest. He sat around the house wanting to do his usual relaxing and enjoying the day with E and I while also enjoying some TV and video gaming. Instead he flipped channels, did a little downloading, played a game, put it down, flipped channels again. He looked so bored and unmotivated that it didn’t take me long to figure out what kind of state of mind he was in. I have those days. Probably more often than anyone else I know. The poor guy only gets two days to really enjoy himself and he spends one of those days caught in the in-between feeling…

I know when I am in that kind of mood nothing seems to make it better no matter what I or anyone else seems to try and that made me stop and think. What can I do to make it any better? The typical nagging me asking him if everything was alright was definitely not helping. What do I do for me when I am in the state? What does everyone else do?

Me? I usually have to put on some music that it is uplifting and inspiring. Maybe drink some hot chocolate or tea. Then if all else fails take a nice LONG hot shower. It wasn’t until 10:30 at night that B put on some music of his and the first thing that came to my mind was .. DUHHH J why didn’t you think of that? I realize that I can’t always fix him or his feelings but I like to think that I could at least have enough ideas to get him going in the right direction.

So maybe it wasn’t meant to be me this time. Maybe he was supposed to figure out what he needed to do for him on his own. But I did think of one thing.

Chocolate Milk.

This boy loves chocolate milk like I love hot chocolate. We used to drink it every night in the summer (yes I convert to chocolate milk when it’s hot and hot chocolate when it’s cold.. it works for me). So I did it, I asked him, “Do you want me to make you some chocolate milk?” and I get an answer I seriously wasn’t expecting. He shook his head no..

What do you do for your significant other when they are in that drifting state of mind? What does your loved one do for you?

In this case, I did nothing and I felt a little disappointed in my usual AWESOME IDEA of a world. All I could do was cross my fingers and hope that tomorrow brought better days, better ideas, better laughs, and please please please bigger smiles!!

Love Always,

Seasonal Depression

5 Nov

I have never been diagnosed as a person with seasonal depression and the word depression scares me so much that I highly doubt I’ll ever go get checked for it!! I can say though that when it starts getting cold out, I start curling up into a little ball 🙂 Sure I think it’s gorgeous outside but I’d rather be inside! Give me a blanket, a book, and some warm yummy food and I’ll be fine inside thanks.

I don’t exactly know what it is but my motivation goes out the window and I hide out until the sun comes back out to warm things up. I used to think I would be moody during the winter but now I think it was just my crazy teenage hormones. HAHA I remember the first time I met B it was so nice outside and I said, “If you can handle me in the winter we’ll be just fine together.” Yeah .. okay so maybe there is something wrong with me but the more people I meet the more I am hearing they feel the same way! If I could get groceries, medicine, and a doctor to come to the house in the winter without it costing an arm and leg I would probably not leave the house unless I had absolutely had to.

WebMD‘s list of signs of seasonal depression are:

decreased levels of energy

difficulty concentrating

fatigue

increase in appetite

increased desire to be alone

increased need for sleep

weight gain

Not all those symptoms actually fit me so I that makes me feel better but the people that are diagnosed with this have an option of light therapy and oh my how much I want this to feel like I have been out in the sun all day when I haven’t is TOTALLY AWESOME!! If I could lay out in the sun and not get burnt to death, cancer, or something worse I would. I love the sun! I love the way I look when I am tan, I love the feeling of complete comfort it gives me. I love how relaxed it makes me feel and I wish it was sunny all year long! 

I am missing summer already!!!

I have no idea what brought up this post but there’s just one more random thing you now know about me 🙂

Love Always,

J
