The Dumps, I Think I’m Down In Them


Frühjahrsmüdigkeit (Photo credit: antenneduesseldorf)

For some reason I have found myself down in the dumps.  There is nothing wrong.  Nothing at all, and yet for the past month or so, I’ve been reluctant to socialise or go out or do much of anything at all.  I think I have what the Germans call Frühjahrsmüdigkeit – it is, if I understand it correctly, a spring lethargy.

Then again, it doesn’t help that I’ve been suffering from shocking hay fever.  Something in Germany does not like me.  And one can not be feeling all sociable when ones head feels like a balloon and you can’t remember the last time you were able to breathe through your nose. Fortunately, I’m on some extra strength nasal spray and the plants seem to have stopped pollinating so much, so I can see an end to this misery.

Still, I hate feeling this way.  I hate that I’ve barely seen my friends or done anything sociable for what feels like a very long time. I hate that all I want to do is curl up on my couch.  I’m hoping that doing sound production for the HPs next play in about 2 weeks time will bring me out of this funk. You really can’t be unsociable when you are doing theatre, darling.

I want the old me back.

  2. Hopefully you’re feeling more like yourself by now.
    It is pretty easy to let life get the better of you, sometimes you just need to kick yourself in the ass. (can I write ass here? eh, I’m going for it) :)

    Get up, get out, get busy!

    • Thanks.:)
      I’m feeling better since I posted this. I think that getting out to the gym regularly is helping as is the lack of hay fever symptoms.

  3. II’m reluctant to socialise at times, but I can’t even blame “Frühjahrsmüdigkeit”. I just don’t always feel like being around people (I call those my anti-social days). My boyfriend has gone away for a week and I’m actually looking forward to being alone tonight, doing what I want and not having to go out and force myself to chat and be cheerful when all I really want to do is curl up at home with my book. I love having friends, but sometimes socialising gets to be too much!

    That said, I hope you are now back out of the dumps :-)
