I know there’s a good many SAD sufferers out there, everyone I know nods their heads when I notice it.
I’m sure it’s just my perspective, but a lot of … functional people still nod their heads about it.
Maybe because my baseline functionality is a bit … uh.. less functional than others are, I feel this SAD stuff worse? Who knows.
What I DO know, is that I am *here* but just barely. I am existing, but not thriving. Sometimes that’s all you can ask for. Sometimes it’s a victory just to be able to cope… but nothing’s *wrong* in my life.
I am a crafter, who suffers from lack of motivation.. and that makes me a very bad crafter.
I will walk into my craft room, work on a project for 10 minutes, and then catch “The Blah’s”. Then I walk out, without having finished anything. I walk out without picking up after myself… and the next time I enter the room I am greeted by unfinished projects and a big mess. I am immediately overwhelmed and just walk out again. I’m going to pretend it’s normal, just to get through my day.
I feel like I will be back with a vengeance someday.
but I cant really promise.
I will try, though.
