Just Hanging On

I wish this post could just be a positive and happy one today, but it’s not going to happen. I’ve been feeling a bit of anxiety and depression the last few days. Monday was particularly bad, and yesterday was not great. I’m not sure if this has to do with anxiety over packing and moving. I feel like I have been on the verge of a panic attack most of the time for the last week or so. I’m hoping that this will get better, but if it doesn’t, I have an appointment to see my doctor on March 17. I’ll talk to him about it then. For now, I’m just hanging in there and doing the best I can.

I have enjoyed being off work the last two days, mainly because I did not even have to leave my apartment. I return to work today. I will likely spend a large part of it catching up on email. I have two meetings, but neither should be bad. It should be a relatively normal day at work. For the past two months, I’ve felt like I have been going nonstop all day every day, but most of the big projects that kept me away from my desk are finished, so now I can sit down at my desk and get to everything else that needs to get done.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
