Post-Holiday Stress Disorder

I'm not sure what it is--the letdown after the holidays, looking back at a year, anticipating a new one. Whatever it is it has me in a foul mood and wondering if a good, snot-filled cry would make it better.

While everyone else is excited for a new year and new resolutions, I'm sitting here this morning filled with anxiety and wanting to hide.

Being responsible for your own happiness is overwhelming sometimes. There are so many things I have to pretend not to see or feel that it becomes exhausting--like playing a role eight days a week.

Fake it till you make it?

My stiff neck and nasty zits say otherwise.

I hear you loud and clear. And right there with you. And there's nothing to drink in the house. ;o) 2010 can only be better right? I say we both file 2009 into the file "It could have been better, but at least we aren't dead" file.

Hang in there, you sure as heck aren't alone.
