Repeating it over and over because I’m kind of under siege am Moment. Usually when I’m in these moods I write something amusing – some of my favorite weblog posts have been written to distract myself in moments of frustration or ill temper or anxiety. I don’t like bothering or worrying people and I generally feel like my moods are my responsibility; if there’s something I don’t like in my life, I should try to fix it instead of griping about it. I also feel like I have enough coping mechanisms and healthy strategies that I shouldn’t succumb to these really minor cloudbursts. Plus there are lots of people whose problems are way worse than mine! … But maybe, as I reach for yet another spoonful of late-night comfort Nutella, I can raise a white flag and say it: I’m struggling. Prayers are appreciated. As are general positive thoughts sent in an East Coast direction.
