I went to visit my mom down in Georgia last weekend and got home Wednesday. I have accomplished exactly nothing in the three days since. Haven’t worked. Haven’t read a book. Haven’t cut the grass, done the laundry, or washed the dishes. I’ve barely been able to get my teeth brushed and shower.
I did do a self-tape audition for a film. But that took two hours of psyching myself up.
Even with therapy and medicine, sometimes I have to almost hibernate so I can emerge more like the person I need and want to be.
Why would I write this here? One, to document it for myself so I know that, sometimes, these periods happen and I always make it through. Two, in case you or someone you know might struggle in similar ways. You should know that you are not alone and that this time will pass.
Rest up and I’ll see you on the other side.
