All I want to do right now is scroll through Facebook, watch the rest of The Tudors and jam as many chocolate chip cookies and pretzels into my face as I can.
It sounds innocuous, I mean who doesn’t want to do that sometimes?
The problem is, lately that’s all I want to do, washed down with half a bottle of wine. I don’t want to be present, I don’t want to be productive, I don’t want a spiritual life, I don’t want anything but to zone out.
That’s fine for a a couple days, maybe even a week. More than that it becomes a serious problem. And that’s what I’m sitting with. Depression/anxiety are factors, of course. I’m under the care of professionals for those issues. I know what those things feel like and they’re there in the background, tugging at me.
But what I’m really struggling with is burn out.
