Going a little postal isn't always a bad thing

What do you do when you have a really bad day?

Me, I ignore everything.  And if this is a weekend, I take my favorite series DVD's, get into bed and have a marathon by myself.  Something dark like Witchblade helps me get my warrior princess attitude going.  Or I may just settle in with Nathan Fillion and Firefly because he is freaking hot in those pants and I like looking at him.  A more somber mood will have me picking the best of the best chick-flick to make me cry like a baby.  The West Wing or Bones are also outstanding for me to get lost in.

Believe it or not it really does help.  Sometimes, for me to recharge, I need to take a mental day.  Not a mental health day.  A day to act a little postal.  I give myself permission to be bitchy and cranky, sometimes at the same time and really enjoy wallowing in it.  I don't want to feel better right away.  

Does that make me crazy?  If so I can live with it.

Yesterday was that kind of day.  In fact it was a very common theme this week as I found when I climbed out of my dark whole this morning.  Doing my blog rounds today,  I was quite surprised to find out that some of my twitter tribe had been drinking the same water.  

I didn't go anywhere near blogland yesterday.  I was not in the frame of mind to be cheered up.  But what I learned today was some of the other bloggers I follow had been dealing with it too.

Do we pick up on each other feelings across the wires?  I am not sure, but what I do know is even though I had moved through my dark period alone, if I had just checked out what my tweeps were up to I may have moved through it quicker.  Will that change how I handle this in the future?  Probably not, but at least from now on I know that there are others out there who will understand and that is priceless.

It's always nice to know we are not alone, especially when we feel we are. Thanks for the comment.
