Limbo is a really good expression of how I am feeling at the moment!

How/why is it that things can look so positive and then, all of a sudden, you seem to forget all that.
You look around and nothing seems to ignite a fire inside, all you want seemingly is to curl up and dissappear.
I'm not stressed
I'm not overally anxious
I'm not depressed
Yet here I am thinking that if I am not any of these then I should be firing on all cylinders and really getting into something.

Writing this down I recall Dollit saying to go on a journey to nowhere and when you have got there come back - well maybe I should take this section of me as part of that journey.

Does anyone else feel like this?
How do you get through it?

I think sometimes Michael you just have to accept that some days are bummers. On days like that I just keep on going and have to believe that tomorrow will be different. :hug:

Yes.
No Idea. Well only my own coping mechanisms.

:D.

When I was in a cycle of self-medication/destruction (drink/ drugs/ other stuff) I think part of the reason (ok maybe only a small part) was to have a reason to justify feeling bad. When you have been through the therapy and figured out lots of triggers and taken steps to avoid them and quit drink/drugs and you still end up feeling lousy - which I guess most of us here do - it never stops being a real pain - well it hasn't for me yet. I just get through the day using what strategies I have - some are very personal, one is playing computer/video games. But that's just me and I guess everyone has to work out their own path.

Sorry to be no help at all. Unless just saying your post is an accurate description of how I feel sometimes helps.

Nick.

I frequently feel that way. I sit in a chair looking at all the music gear I bought for when I feel better, only I never seem to feel well enough to use any of it. I know I will, but I just seem to drift with no motivation at all.:confused:

Limbo .... It totally describes my life. Waiting to feel better, unable to appreciate when I am feeling better and screwing things up so I dont get better.:confused:
