Why is it that when you feel sad, you can't remember for how long you've been sad, but if it's hours it feels like days, and if it's days it feels like weeks, and if it's weeks it feels like years, ad infinitum? And you can't remember what it was like when you were happy? And you're convinced that even if you were happy before, it could only have lasted a few fleeting minutes? Whose idea was that? Because it's crap.

I have just made myself tasty food (wild rice, broccoli, sugar snap peas, salmon). It is helping. I recommend it.

Thank you very much. It took a fair amount of effort to prep & Tatershop, so I appreciate it.

PS You need to post higher res photos of your glass. I keep clicking on stuff trying to embiggen it so I can see detail and failing.

I don't know, but that's a cool photo. I am sorry you're sad, though! Winter is hard.

Thank you! I'm trying to cope as best I can - have been taking my vitamins (with extra iron & calcium) every day. It makes a noticeable difference, but sometimes is not quite enough.

*hugs* I know what you mean. It's so shitty that I tend to try to 'track' how long I've been feeling shitty because I'm prone to getting severe clinical depression and they always seem to ask 'how long have you been feeling like this'.

I hope you be un-sad soon

Thank you. I have been trying to eat healthily in addition to taking my vitamins, which helps some.

I'm hoping once the days get longer and spring starts to look a little closer, things will get better.

I don't know why, but it seems to work that way when you're sick too. *hugs*

Thank you. You're right. The weekend is coming, the weekend is coming. Must remember that.

I too identify way too much with this, though I am pretty sure someone has the crockery on strings so that they can lower it closer to me and then pull it away.

Also very much like the image and am too quick on the clicky today.

Ha. You know, I made a version of this in which the strings are still visible. I built a diorama scene in a spray-painted cardboard box in order to create this photo.

It would make a gorgeous automaton. Probably inside one of those silly glass domes.

Ah, thank you very much. I appreciate it.

I am currently decimating a satsuma. I have eaten so many satsumas lately that, if I were to approach satsuma tree, I believe it would uproot itself to get away from my predation.
