People are strting to worry about me again, which I suppose may be justified, but I'm not convinced that blogging is really helping at the moment.

I'm in a slump, these things happen. But slumps never last and life is ever changing. This will all be in the past and forgotten about soon enough. I have so many different abilities, sooner or later I'll find some way of believing in myself again. Don't worry.

Yeah, but I don't know about you, sometimes I find it really helpful to blog about my low points as well as all the rest. And, I'd like to add, it made me feel a lot less alone to read your post the other day, so thank you for sharing it.

Nothing I’ve read on your blog can convince me you are any less of a whole person. I really wonder whether you might have a bit of clinical depression – based solely on own experience ie things which are usually OK take on a grey overall hue, and things don’t seem to have a point, and minor things you’d normally laugh at take on a deeper meaning eg tesco card left in the hands of others who don’t appreciate how sensitive you are feeling. It’s just looking at the wrong side of the coin and as you’ve said, the coin will flip over. Just keep walking, keep breathing, and going through the motions. Eventually life comes right side up again. Don’t let the job stuff define you, either. Loving what you do is one thing. Expecting idiots to recognise your worth is quite another. Hold on to what you love and just wait to be inspired again. xx
God what a lecture. Sorry !

Love everything you say and agree and am living it with you - found your blog through Strictly Writing - where I'm one of the 'team' - am now about to become a new Avid Follower of yours - wa-hey, your day just got better for this nugget of serendipity, right? ;)

Actually Debs, yes, it did! Thankyou.

Dandelion, thanks for that too.

RTC, I don't think I'm clinically depressed cos it comes and goes - as soon as I get exercise, I'm fine. But yes, when things slide I can feel quite bad.
