The social media holiday was difficult. I got flu & was grumpy all between Christmas & New Year.
Listless, coughing … and a load more symptoms. Felt as if half my brain was present.
So it wasn’t anything like the holiday I hoped for.
But there was one really good thing about it - my mental health held up - I had no trace of depression, lack of self-confidence or self-esteem. I didn’t like myself much but I still felt intact, whole - misery-guts but in good nick.
You see I’ve had a good few dreadful Christmases when my mental health was absent. Those were the really touch times. This year it was only physical trouble, aches, pains, annoyance - all stuff I’m glad to say I’ve been strong enough for.
So there’s plenty to celebrate - even if I don’t yet have the mood for celebrating. I’m confident I’ll get back into the way of energy - the mind & body will start to flow again.
I took snaps on Christmas Day - family times. I was well enough to do that - then I gave up and did a bit of fiddling with shots on the iPad. I’m useless at taking snaps when my humour is foul. But now I find I put a few on Facebook. Maybe I did more during the time than I realised.
Anyway it’s good to be back here - and I hope to blog more consistently during 2011.
