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.
