My last post was a while ago, huh? Well, I have been feeling down....and sitting off in my corner. I don't talk about being sad much, because after 'Gee, I'm sorry...', what else is there to say....and then people feel awkward. Meh.

I'll start swimming again.....but methinks I'll just float for now.


  1. I am going to say something other than "Gee, I'm sorry". I am going to say that your having the courage to say you are feeling down makes me feel like I am not alone and it emboldens me to press "publish" when I have written a post that is more sad than funny.

    I also think that it is good to know that people do care and that they really are sorry that you are down. That said, I really am sorry you are feeling down and that I am so glad you posted.
    Hugs to you.

  2. Floating is good, versus the other option of drowning. Ever feel like your sinking...just give me a shout out k. Yeah, I know one too many takes on the floating subject. You get what I mean...Your in my thoughts dear friend. (Hugs)Indigo

  3. We'll be here if you need us, Amy!

    Hugs, Beth

  4. When I am feeling like sinking into the dark place I write on a blog that doesn't identify me. It lets me vent all my anger and bile. Some of it gets pretty nasty. Some of it is just whiny crap.

    Perhaps you need to start a completely anonymous blog to do the same thing.

    I hope you get feeling better soon.

  5. Mehhhhhhhhhhhhh...

    I hear ya, girl - but you always say just the right things when I'm in my dark place.

    Maybe an animal post will make you smile...I have one in the works for you!


  6. If I was there, I would take you out for supper and we'd have a few glasses of wine and chat. If you wanted to tell me why ok, If not who cares, at least we would have had fun!

    Gaz xxxx

  7. Hi Amy,
    Hang in there ... I'm sure this will pass and you'll be feeling better soon. Sounds like you could use a little Dangerous Chocolate Cake in a Mug (which, by the way, is the first and only recipe I've ever seen that I feel tempted to actually try ...).

  8. Babe, I'm lovin' you right now. You saw my pity-party post, and I had no good reason for it. Just typical stuff. We love you, no matter how often or WHAT you post.

  9. [Jumping up and down, wiggling my head while making my eyes really wide, wagging my tongue and making "oogity-boogity" sounds, putting my thumbs in my ears and waving my fingers, and just generally making a jerk out of myself - worse than usual, I mean - to get Amy to laugh.] Now SMILE,dammit!

    Didn't know I could do sophisticated comedy, did you?

    Lots of hugs...

  10. Floatings good...and you will eventually tire of it, and start swimming again.
    Love ya,

  11. I hope that you feel better soon Amy, and if you don't I hope that you have the courage to write about it and accept the support given you by your loyal readers who love and care about you so very much. (((hugs)))

  12. Snap out of it misery guts!

  13. Darn, I see I haven't missed much over here - that makes me sad because you always make me laugh. Come on over, we'll float on beach rafts with cold drinks with little imbrellas in them, and laugh until we cry, sound good? Hope you're feeling back to normal... er, maybe I should say back to your regular happy self soon! Hugs!

  14. PS - that would be umbrellas not imbrellas, although that sounds interesting too! ;-)

  15. Amy... I have cuddles for you my dear, I know how alone you can feel when you're going through depression. It is difficult for loved ones to understand... really understand. There are lots of us here in blog land that do though Amy, so don't ever feel afraid to tell it as it is here. Or somewhere else, or to someone else, but do keep talking about your feelings. They ARE important, and it is important that you don't keep them all bottled up.

  16. (((Amy))), Float as long as you need. There are times when swimming is just too much. And know that you're not alone.
    :) Leigh

  17. I'm right there with ya, sista! Float on!~

    Love ya!~



Talk to me, people! Otherwise, I'm just talking to myself....
