Handle the falls

In which FP is wandering along the wrong path

Or, in other words, the semi-regular Tuesday “I’m feeling shit” post.

It isn’t a deliberate thing, but it’s a consequence of spending a lot of time away each weekend. Monday or Tuesday become the Big Comedown Day, almost as if I’d been on pills.

If I’m still around friends, then even if I’m suffering from a drop, I can cope. The problem that I have is that by Monday I’m back in the office again, with nothing to help me other than Big Dave asking: “why are you so fucking mardy?” in between singing fragments from 80s TV show themes. I’m left wondering if I really am following the right path, or if I’m just not the right sort of person for all this stuff I’ve been doing. People keep reassuring me that there’s a different path for everybody; everybody can find their own; and when I’m happy right now I’m the happiest I’ve been for a long time. When the drop comes, though, I still wonder if I’m doing the right thing.

    I realise this is an old post but wanted to make a reply nonetheless.

    I live apart from my husband and often experience this same drop mid-week. I don’t think it’s the path that’s the problem, rather the needing someone there to help cope through the drop. The comfort of a caring word or touch.

    Not sure how you get it. But nonetheless believe that feeling the lack of it is valid and not just mardy.
