Anxiety, dread, and depression

It’s one of those days when my mood suddenly turns on a dime. I was going along, bored but getting things done and feeling generally positive, when I suddenly found myself sliding down the mountain of self doubt. All my choices seem suspect. All my talents have been buried, misused, or never existed at all. Every event seems like a hurdle, from the smallest to the largest. It’s just a mood, I tell myself. It will pass. But really these sorts of moods suck the joy out of everything and replace it with anxiety and dread. I have enough anxiety and dread on the good days without more taking root.


  1. Been there all too often! I hope for a better day for you!

  2. For about a month, I have been waking up just about every morning feeling incredibly anxious. Exercise is the only thing that makes me feel any better. I try to do that first thing - otherwise I feel lousy for most of the morning.
