Don't have an awful lot to say at the moment.

Life is reasonable. My job is at least worthwhile, if not completely fulfilling. Our landlord is prepared to let us stay for another year. I'm fairly well, although this winter did sort of knock the stuffing out of me.

I can't seem to get particularly motivated about anything though. I have a suspicion that I may be suffering from mild depression. Not really sure. It's quite hard to identify for a number of reasons. Firstly, I can never really remember what exactly being clinically depressed actually feels like, which is highly ironic given that I spent the majority of my 20s in this state. Secondly, the type of symptoms I get these days now I am no longer quite so messed up are so mixed up with general fatigue that it's difficult to figure out what's what.

I suppose this is a note to self post. It could well be that I'm demotivated because like I'm still not in the right job, don't really have any outside interests at the moment and what's left of the CFS always kicks my arse over the winter.

Then again, not having any interest in even online stuff, is a big tick for there being something not quite right.

Bah. If I'm not any better in a month it may well be time to look at going to the docs. I'm not that keen to go back on medication since I've been med-free for a couple of years. Then again it would be silly to ignore that possible solution.

True... I agree, wait a month or two until the sun and springtime have a chance to change things for you. If you find you still can't enjoy things then, sure seek a medical solution.

However, I think a lot of people are feeling the same, if one can go by online posts. Perhaps due to the economy or just we're all getting older.

The winter seems to have knocked the stuffing out of many people.
My doctor said that she has seen many people who have ME/CFS,fibromyalgia and arthritic conditions whose symptoms have been troublesome.
I am convinced I am a plant as I seem to have twice (all things are relative!)as much energy when the sun shines!
The sun is out this morning and I feel much better - hope you do too.

I don't know how Winter has been down South (all things are relative ;) but here it has been a very, very long Winter up here... it started early and has only just about let up now (though they say there might still be more snow on the way!?!)

It has really taken it toll on me too, I normally lose a bit of weight when it's cold but I'm having problems because it's been cold for so long, the couple of arthritic finger joints I have are causing more trouble by far than ever before and I know a lot of people who don't feel the urge to do anything much (more than normal) - this last might be the economy but it could as well be the Winter... at least here it normally bodes well for the following Winter :)
