Lost someone important to me. Not unexpected but still a shock. I didn't drink last night but today hasn't been so well. I haven't told anyone IRL because I didn't want to sound like I was making excuses for all the pressure I am under (basically trying to do a 40hr/wk job in 60% of the time) but I was not feeling well today. I just sort of zoned out, brought a good performance to a job interview but that's all it was: an act. They were impressed. Problem is the job is lower level than the acumen that I demonstrated so then they were wondering if I would be interested in working with people who don't have the depth of understanding I do.

I feel like I'm wound extremely tight. The slightest noise makes me jump. I almost ran a red light because I was zoned out as I was driving. Worst problem is I was already depressed so I have no where lower to go. Strangely I don't feel like doing anything drastic. I just want to sleep.

Just popping in to say I've been reading your blog postings...I don't always know what to say. Sorry to hear you lost someone and have been feeling low. Hang in there man, and take care of yourself.

I'm sorry for your loss, Ralph. :D I have a close family member who is a recovering alcoholic, and I know the road can be very challenging. Would it help to talk about your feelings around this loss?
