Stuck In A Funk

Happy sad irritated confused

All last week I was stuck in a funk. Well maybe that’s not the right words but it rhymes and sounds good . STUCK IN A FUNK. Another word to describe the way I was feeling…..”Blah”

BLAH”

I woke up and felt like there was no reason to get out of bed. There was nothing to look forward to.   Nothing excited me. 

I was feeling down. So many things were irritating me,  including people.  For no reason really, I was just irritated. Irritated with everything, but nothing specifically. I didn’t want to go anywhere but at the same time, I didn’t feel like staying home.

My emotions were everywhere, as if they were confused.

I tried to snap out of it. I tried thinking of something fun, something to make me smile, make me happy. But I couldn’t think of anything. My mind was blank and I struggled to find the meaning of something fun.

What is fun? What do I like to do? Nothing came to mind.

Nothing sounded appealing to me.  Nothing gave me that excitement feeling. NOTHING.

So all week I was stuck in a funk. I did alot of sleeping. And I do mean alot.

But Then…..

Then my good friend called and invited me to a BBQ. She was having a “back to school” BBQ for the kids. I didn’t want to go, but another part of me did. So I told her I would be there.

When the day of the BBQ arrived, I didn’t want to go. I didn’t feel up to it. I almost stayed home, but I knew my friend would have been disappointed if I didn’t show up. Not only would she have been upset but my son would have been too.

So I made myself go. Once I was there my mood drastically changed. I enjoyed myself.  I laughed, I ate, and laughed some more. I had fun. I enjoyed myself.  I was surrounded by friends, delicious food, and happy kids.

I took that tiny step. I got out of the house even though I really didn’t want to. Because of that step, I no longer feel blah. Today my funk is gone.

I’m not sure if I was in a bout of depression or maybe it was the weather.  Who knows. 

But here’s what I do know…..

I do know that even though I feel great today, tomorrow I may not. Tomorrow I might be “blah”, I might be in a funk. And….. That’s OK. Not everyday is going to be great, AND not everyday is going to be bad. Each day might be different. BUT…….

I WILL GET THROUGH IT

If you find yourself stuck in a funk,  please remember you are not alone. If you feel that your having a hard time getting through it, Reach Out, Speak Up, And Ask For Help.

  1. I totally relate to this. I have bi-polar 2, which, thank God, is not anywhere near as scary as bi-polar 1. So, I love my happy meds and my Obamacare insurance that pays for them. Thank you for following. I look forward to reading more of your blogs. Please pop by my page anytime. And, good luck 🍀

  2. That is an excellent expression to describe my moods at times. So glad that a friend helped you out of it. I feel like I have been stuck in a funk for this past pandemic year.

    I have had anxiety and OCD since childhood. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helped but then found much greater relief with a low dose of Prozac that I have been on for 15 years or more. It is remarkably helpful with the OCD and I learned to drive (and enjoy it) after years of fear. It’s not magical though and I still have to work hard at beating this illness. Good luck!
