Was spoiled by the warm temps and sunshine earlier. Now day after day of cold and rain. That's normal spring here, but it hurts my mood. I'm trying, though. I'm working on things. A little at a time.

Such a poor night's sleep the last few nights. So many anxieties and fears I haven't felt in a while. Even the dog left the room due to my tossing and turning.

30 Apr 2021

That weather, it spoils my mood too! It's not even summer yet and I'm already afraid of winter again πŸ™ˆ hope you feel better soon Jeff!

30 Apr 2021

I think everyone is affected by the weather. I feel my mood falling down when it's cold and ugly... I hope you'll have a nice weather soon β˜€οΈ

Taking a few days away. Boarded dog and rented an AirB&B. It's cold and rainy, and I'm bored, but that's okay. Boredom isn't bad. Hope to hit some new breweries later.

Thought things were improving, but today is a really hard day. It's sunny and warmer, and I feel miserable and unmotivated. So tired of feeling so tired...

Beautiful sunny (but cold!) day. Sitting at the bar of a favorite brewery I haven't been to in ages. Enjoying Irish music and dogs letting me pet them. Feeling good in the moment.

Yay

13 Mar 2021

That's wonderful Jeff ☺.

15 Mar 2021

Yo, Jeff, Im trying to get this body in ultra marathon shape. Any suggestions?

18 Mar 2021

Nah, just want to test the body's limits and take care of it. And I'm a he not a she.

19 Mar 2021

I'm not in ultra shape anymore, Love. But I can give advice! Lots of good free training plans out there. I recommend finding folks to run with to make the long runs easier!

20 Mar 2021

thx, J. any plans you'd rec?

20 Mar 2021

Hal Higdon has some great plans. And Relentless Forward Progress is a great book!

20 Mar 2021

I'll check them out. thx.

Hoping warmer weather helps get me more motivated. Booked a few days in a tiny house a few hours away for next month. Need to get away for a bit. Nice to look forward to something.

Great you booked something!

09 Mar 2021

Yay! Hope you enjoy the *** out of it. I wish I could go somewhere too... But can't right now.

10 Mar 2021

Agreed. Warmer weather has buoyed my spirits. Waiting for leaf buds to open and plants to flower.

10 Mar 2021

That sounds delightful

Today was a hard day of self-pity. It was sunny but so cold. This was a hard day to get through. So many of them are, these days.

I'm really sorry Jeff. Yes, I find the same. I always think of you even though I am not on here as often. There are certain people on here I always think of and you are one of them πŸ™‚. You are not alone. We can all suffer together. Big Hugs

Haven't felt good about anything in a long time. Even those little content moments have been missing. No motivation for more than sleep. Work is exhausting. Haven't run much in weeks. It all piles up.

It can be hard to get one's sh it together

02 Mar 2021

It does. Challenging times on top of it all.

Three years ago today, my neighbor and good friend took her life. I've thought about her often. Little did I know I'd lose her husband too, as my good friend moved on. How life has changed...

Has it been 3 years already. I remember you talking about your friend.

02 Mar 2021

Guessing you're still mourning the loss of connection

03 Mar 2021

As we get older, I think it's much harder to make friends. Also to find people you sync with. Sigh.

Very few days of work the next few days. Holidays are good and bad. Nice to relax and enjoy time off, but hate reminders they're for couples and families. Makes me feel very alone. But it will pass.

Agreed.

18 Dec 2020

I hear you.

18 Dec 2020

I've spend 32 put of 34 christmesses being single and it can be a lot of fun too; apart from the all you need is love TV shows

19 Dec 2020

Yeah, I don't like all the love films and songs either... They try to put in our minds Christmas is only worth being celebrated in couple which is definitely not true!

Another birthday, another reminder of all the things I try to get through the day without thinking about: I'm still alone, still unhappy, etc.

I hope the next year will be better ❀️

13 Dec 2020

Happy birthday ,Jeff,hope 2021 brings you joy and luck.hold on there,with you πŸ™‚

13 Dec 2020

Happy birthday dear Jeff

14 Dec 2020

Hey, Jeff, Happy birthday and welcome back. Great to see you posting again-even when you're feeling down. A fellow Sagittarian. Celebrated mine a few days ago. May this year be positively transformative.

14 Dec 2020

Happy birthday. X

Thanks, pandas!

I don't say the right things. Years of a loner lifestyle has left me desperate to communicate, but I always say the wrong things. It's no wonder no one wants me around for long. I wouldn't either.

There is no right or wrong between friends. They will understand. Try not to worry.

13 Nov 2020

We want you around. Hope your okay!

I wish I had an outlet for this frustration and anger and negative thoughts. Keeping them all in is poisoning me. F--k this whole day.

Try writing letters or poems.

12 Oct 2020

what would that outlet look like for you?

13 Oct 2020

We're here until you find it. I know it's hard to keep all those feeling inside.

13 Oct 2020

Write it all down and then burn it, that was what my therapist advised, it's a great release!

Woke up in a surprisingly good mood today for a Monday where I didn't sleep well and thought I'd be hungover. Feel pretty okay, and these okay mornings are so important to recognize and appreciate!

Sounds good Jeff! Happy for you.

29 Sep 2020

Definitely thankful for them. Thankful for the two friends I was able to see last night and enjoy food and bourbon and venting with. Thankful for sun on a day that's supposed to be rainy. Thankful for my job, despite being extremely unmotivated...

28 Sep 2020

...because I'm doing fairly well financially and paying down a nagging credit card (slowly) and able to look to buy a new car before winter hits. (Scheduled a test drive tomorrow.)

Week had gotten progressively more of a struggle. Haven't accomplished much. Head's been hurting off and on all week. On plus side, trying to run more and eat better, and got some appts. scheduled.

Last night, my head hurt bad, and I wondered if I'm having an aneurism or stroke or something. I thought about what my dog would do, since it would surely be at least a week before anyone checked on me. I wouldn't care, I figured, if he ate me to...

25 Sep 2020

...survive. But where would he get water? I don't leave the toilet seat up. It made me very sad to think about him dying slowly while I rotted away in bed. I wish there was some way of ensuring someone would check now and then to make sure I'm alive.

25 Sep 2020

For him more than me.

25 Sep 2020

Are you having migraines? There are meds that help, I've been taking a low dose of Propranolol for a while, and it's changed my life. I've had horrible headaches for years, they drove me insane.

I so missed mlthe peace of sitting by the fire last night. Feeling the usual malaise settling back in. Frustrating. Thinking a lot about what I need to do different.

That said, I love my house and slept so well in my own bed. And happy to be back with my dog!

18 Sep 2020

sounds like the transition provoked mixed feelings- gratitude to be back home & some heaviness around the usual routine- wanting a change.

20 Sep 2020

Welcome back :)

Last night by the fire at my cabin (rented). Will be hard to get back to reality tomorrow. I put a lot of pressure on this vacation to fix me, and of course it didn't. But I enjoyed...

... getting away and relaxing and disconnecting (mostly). Need to do that more often.

17 Sep 2020

I think I wanted great revelations and self realizations. I got calmness and peace, which I probably needed more.

17 Sep 2020

I'm glad it worked out for you in some way. I hope your transition going back to work goes smoothly.

Pounding headache ruined my run today, but got some hiking in. Finished my leftover steak and shrimp from yesterday and sitting by the fire with soft music playing. Relaxing.

Nearly impossible to be bored sitting outside by a fire. Listening to music and trying to appreciate the moment.

Renting a cabin in the woods for a few days alone. Finally got a fire going, and drinking a good beer. It's very calming. Looking forward to doing nothing.

sounds peaceful. In Nature, we can often connect to what is true & enduring.

14 Sep 2020

Thank you, pandas. I've been looking forward to this for a long time. Seems the perfect 2020 vacation. My goal is to achieve and get past boredom.

14 Sep 2020

Enjoy your restπŸ™‚

14 Sep 2020

This sounds fantastic! Even though the boredom bit may be challenging for some. Have a great time.

14 Sep 2020

This sounds awesome! I'm glad you are doing something for yourself, Jeff. Enjoy the peace & quiet.
