Feeling Down and Out

Went out to dinner with my friend, Donald Fry, and his wife, Sharon, last night at my favourite Chinese restaurant, Lai Lai. The food was really good, the conversation was first-rate (although Sharon kept falling asleep, due to various reasons that I won't go into here), but... I came home from dinner feeling depressed.

I know that part of this has to do with the fact that my knee, while feeling somewhat better, is still extremely painful. Add to that the fact that I don't seem to be getting a lot of sleep, but there's more to it than that. Ever since my virtual friends got back from Gen Con, I've been feeling depressed and sad that I didn't go to the convention (despite the various, excellent reasons for not doing so). Hearing some of the wonderful personal stories that I've heard about the conventions and all has made me realise that, well...I'm feeling lonely.

I suppose this the "post-Stefanie blues", to be honest, but I haven't seemed to be overly social the last month or so, despite the efforts of my friends to pull me up by the bootstraps and everything. The knee problem hasn't helped in this regard, since with the reduced mobility, I haven't really been socializing a lot of late. And the pain in the knee seems to put me in a bugger of a mood all the time. *sigh*

Ah, well...the venting about this helps somewhat, but I'm still depressed. I'm in a funk, and I need to find a way out of this haze of being down. Need to find something positive in my life to cling to until this passes. And I hate it when I feel sorry for myself, to be honest, since I tend to want to eat, eat a lot, of foodstuffs that are not healthy for me. Time for some celery sticks and sliced cheese, methinks. And then back to the old grind.
