What's the deal-i-o?

Why can't I think of anything to write about anymore? My brain feels like a big ball of mush. The cerebral funk has affected not only my writing, but my commenting as well (i'm sure you guys have noticed). I just can't think of anything helpful, important, witty, ect to say lately. I just sit down and stare at the computer screen and nothing comes. I am still reading blogs. I still care about everyone. There's just not a whole lot going on upstairs.

Ironically, I am the least drugged that I have been in years. Down to just 2 meds. So what gives? I should be thinking clearly, ideas flowing, you get the picture. But it's just the opposite.

It's like this in therapy right now, too. I just sit there and cant think of anything to say. Feels like I am just wasting everybody's time. I hope this is just a "phase".

Can't believe I am writing about having nothing to write about. Ok I am done now.

Maybe you just need a break from blogging.

And your hugs and caring are all I need after my posts; it means the world to me just knowing you and others care. You don't have to say something witty or insightful or anything but just that you care and are thinking of me (as I am of you.)

Just relax and the writing will come back. I've had dry spells, too. Play with the kids, have fun with your husband, maybe even stay off the computer a day or too. You're fine; you've just been through a lot lately and you need to take care of yourself.

I removed the last comment because it was a duplicat.

But maybe you can help me. You read my blog. Do you think I glamorize anorexia and other eating disorders? I've gotten that comment twice from people who normally neither read nor post to my blog. I feel I'm just being very honest about it. Maybe people can't handle honest descriptions of eating disorders.

Again, anything you say is wonderful. Don't be so hard on yourself! {{{Hugs}}}

maybe this is a good thing - life outside blogging/ed is so fulfilling it keeps you busy and not thinking about writing :)

Angela, I responded to your question on your blog, because I thought you could use the support over there. Of course, the short answer is "no".
Good luck on your insurance review tomorrow!

Oh Lisa, this reflects me most of the time... I'm either in crazy panic and unable to coordinate thoughts or black... like a thick grey wall of confuzzling fog that is neverending and unable to think...

Like yourself I've typically been reading blogs but really struggling to comment, its either there or its not :(

Incidentally, this IS a symptom of CFS... cognitive difficulties and naming them as brain fog is one of the primary symptoms... so maybe its a combo of that and depression??

Just a thought.
