Today I just feel exhausted and depressed, a bit anxious. I would like to be vegetating in front of the TV. What I don’t want to do is be preparing for another bout of DVD-free Shabbat, but that’s where I am today. I could really have done with a few more days before Shabbat. I’ve done some TV watching anyway. I don’t really feel up to writing or Torah study today, not even writing here. I just want to crash.
I increasingly feel like I really need to see a therapist again. I just feel a bit of a mess. Some of that is post-Pesach mental hangover, but I feel I also need some help to process some emotions to do with Mum’s cancer, and to do with my relationship with E, which is good, but hard to process because taking me into completely new territory on multiple levels. I think I want to stay in lockdown, on some level, because it stops me needing to engage with my life.
