All Week I’ve Been Sad

By Posted on 10 Comments 2 min read

All week I’ve been sad and I haven’t a clue why. I’m fortunate in that I don’t suffer from depression, and I always try to write a blog that is filled with some humor. So why am I so sad this week? My future is looking bright, well, as bright as it can be and compared to some folk in this world, that’s good.

Perhaps I’m not so much sad as run down? That old saying that I need my batteries re-charging. Or is it the lack of sunshine during these winter months? It’s never bothered me before, so why now? I haven’t a clue and perhaps it’s not having a clue that’s making things worse. You see, I like to work through any problems that come my way in a simple, sequential manner, so not being able to fathom why I’m sad might be part of the problem. Oh I don’t know.

I have a great family, a few close friends, my music, my  blog, my new camera yet for some reason this week, life seems over whelming. I suppose if I’m honest with myself, I want to move away from where I am now, move house with my wife and start afresh, just like when we got married. She’s all for it, but I think deep down I want it to happen yesterday.

It’s funny, but writing this blog today has thrown some light on why I’m feeling so sad this week. We need to get away from here, it’s not a happy place anymore and the move will do us the world of good.
I’m glad I don’t suffer with depression, it must be dreadful, the black dog, the black tunnel with no light at the end. I’m lucky that I’m only sad, it will pass, and soon enough. Here’s to next week and hopefully a brighter one for all.

I'd love to hear from you

    A new start is always exciting. Hopefully the spring will be upon us soon. That always helps.

    I believe depression can be in the form where everything is going right around you, except the chemical balance in your brain. It can happen without any clue as to why. 🙁 Love

      Yes it’s a dreadful illness. Being sad is not nice, so depression must be awful.

    Thank you for your blog Trev, and sharing your feelings from this past week. I’m not sure about Jolly Old England but here in the USA February is possibly the worst month of the year to get feeling down. I have even considered getting a sun lamp because the darker days drive me right up the wall. I was down in spitit a week ago because I ended up in the hospital with bladder infection, it was hard picking myself up and trying to get going again. I wish I could tell you I think is possibly what you need, but I don’t think I can do that. I would hate to see you make a move and still have sadness haunting you.

    For many years now my doctors have been asking me, “are you sure you don’t need something for depression for feeling sad and down?” I have always answered no. I’m ok. They ask me this because I have survived for over 50 years after a spinal cord injury. I decided years ago, I simply refuse to let that drag me down mentally, I think I try every trick in the book’s to stay upbeat. Maybe kidding myself through my subconscious, huh? I do know our minds have the ability to turn anything around and make something good out of it. I’m now 75 years and with this burned out old body I feel constant fatigue, sleep 8 hours and don’t feel rested. Any ideas? I try to ecercise and eat balanced meals. I told my wife I been thinking about going back to the pub! She threatened me with a cast iron pan.

    Thank you for visiting my blog, Leland

      Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write Leland. I think I’ll be ok. It’s as you say, February seems to be a difficult month. My docs too have asked me often if I think I am depressed, but I’ve always said no and refused any of their medication for depression. Best if you keep away from the pub, I don’t touch any alcohol these days and I think I feel better for it, well, the next day certainly. I hope you get to feel better soon and that the spring will soon be upon us and the warmth of the sun will at least bump up our vitamin D which should help if only a little. Take care my friend, very good to hear from you.

    I have woken up on some days and I just feel low for no particular reason. I find that taking long walks or some exercise helps me a great deal.

      Thank you Jacqueline. I agree, a walk especially if the sun is shining, listen to some music and appreciate all the good things, and I feel a lot better.
