I’ve been in this funk lately

funk

Today, I am just going to talk to you.

I’ve been in this funk lately. I don’t know why.

I have so much to do and overall I’m doing it… I love my job, but I feel stuck, I guess. I want to move forward or do something more towards psychology. I’m not considering leaving my job by any means, I just am in that funk. I love where I work and what I do. I just feel like I could be doing more to help if I finished school but then money or time or I don’t know what.

I was way ahead in college. I had my associate’s done in a year instead of two… but then I took a year off and that year is turning into a year and a half. Now I feel like I’m behind when in reality, I’m just no longer ahead.

I want to go to school but time and money say otherwise. I’m stressed and just everything.

I’m not really having many down days. One here or there. I’m on 40mg of Celexa and over all that’s going well. I’m so glad I’m not going through serotonin sickness anymore. I went from 150mg of Zoloft (high dosage) to 20mg of Celexa (low-med dosage) and it was just horrible. I almost immediately called my doctor and even though he was on vacation, he took care of me.

Sorry for all of the rambling. I’m just talking to you and saying what’s on my mind.

Our apartment is clean… so that’s good. Such a stress reliever to not have stuff everywhere… just basic clutter can make you so blah.

I’ve been reading lately, so that’s good too. I have a few surprise projects coming that are just super exciting.

You guys are all amazing. I’ve received so much great support on here. So much more than I could’ve ever imagined, like being nominated for the Liebster Award. Thank you so much for all of the support on my blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Just thank you.

I appreciate it so much.

 

Keep calm,

Epic.

  • Sending you love. I can relate to being in a funk…usually happens during the winter for me.
    Have you tried anything natural and holistic ?

    • Aww thank you.
      I’m still in the middle of balancing out new medications, so I’m sure that could be part of it. I’ve tried several things so I’m just trying new ones, I guess. Or hoping for it to just get better. Thanks for the support! (:

  • I can definitely understand the feeling of being in a “funk”. I attribute it also to my menstrual cycle. I usually get especially “funky” about a week before I start that lovely cycle. I usually take that time to be extra kind to myself. I take time to drink hot tea and zen out for a few minutes. It can be all to easy to fall into a negative thought cycle. Hope you feel better!

    • This has been a pretty consistent last couple or few weeks. And it’s not the normal funk. It’s not like feeling down with depression on many levels but it kind of is. It’s odd. So I’m just hoping for the best and as I said in another comment, it could be somewhat due to meds still being balanced.

    • and thanks! I really appreciate the support<3

  • Hey Love! Keep your head up!! Sounds like you are experiencing OVERWHELM! We tend to try and blame ourselves for a funk but honour that LIFE CAN BE HARD and it will not always be butterflies and unicorns! I have a free audio series with tips to cure overwhelm if you are interested. You can get it from my website humblelifestyle.com.

    Best of luck to you! xo

    • Thank you! I definitely appreciate it and thank you for the support. (:

    • Hey there, I just hopped over to your site thru StumpleUbon. Not somthing I might typically read, but I enjoyed your views none the less. Thanks for creating some thing well worth reading through.

    Oh gosh I hear ya on the serotonin sickness…been there done that.
    As for school don’t beat yourself up. Now is the time for self love. School won’t go anywhere. I graduated with my nursing degree at 43 (I’m not saying to wait that long lol! But my point is that you will do great things with your life. You already are by sharing your thoughts. People benefit from this.)

    • It’s definitely not fun, that’s for zure.
      Thank you! That’s actually really encouraging. I definitely appreciate the support. Max, I’m taking another year off. By then my full time job will help pay for it as well.
      I’m benefitting from blogging personally and definitely hope it helps others. (:

  • Ugh I totally feel you on being in a funk. My uncle passed away two weeks ago and I was initially okay but the past week has been a downward spiral of anxiety and insomnia. This has only happened to me once before–do you have any pointers on how to manage and find peace? Also, congrats on the new job! That must make things a lot better.

    • Awww, I’m so sorry to hear that. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to message me on my facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/epicfied
      I completely understand the feeling of anxiety and insomnia and the loss of a loved one. It’s definitely no fun. Honestly, best advice I can give is take it a day at a time. You lost someone you loved. Of course, it will be hard and difficult. If you have someone you can reach out to (again, feel free to message me), sometimes it helps just not to feel alone. Otherwise, find an activity that you enjoy or find yourself no longer doing anymore. Go out and do it (or stay it)… Yoga can help.

      Thanks! I’ve actually been here since August.
