I'm in a funk

Jump to last reply

I'm in a funk and I need to get myself out of it. I just lost a job which in a way I'm relieved about but ever since then, I've just been in a funk. It's comfortable being in one but then sometimes I think, enough is enough.

I think I should take this opportunity to go somewhere and re energize. I do not know where to begin and I would appreciate some ideas since yall are so well traveled and what not. I went to the eye doctor today and my prescription was surprisingly lower than what it had been last year.

He said, "Last year your left eye was -4.25 and now it is -2.75. Very good. Your right eye was -3.75 and now it is -2.25." Wow, that is a big drop within a year! I was incredibly happy to hear the news since I've always had poor eyesight.

And then the devil said, "That's usually what happens when you turn ?0."

What a d%*k. I'm not even close to ?0.

Anyway, that was the clincher. Being in this funk is aging me and I now have to get myself feeling better again. I think I need to get away and FEEL ALVE again. Where do you think I should go? Please spare me the blame, criticisms, hate, cocky replies, please. I know. I'm beyond lame. at the moment. This is why I've come to this board. I need help. And I would rather just die than be this lame in front of someone I know in real life especially since those around me think I'm so "strong" because of my profession. Let's not get into the specifics. I do not want to see a shrink and I refuse to think I'm clinically depressed. I'm not. I'm just in a funk. I know. Please go away if you'll just be mean.

Where do you think I should go and for how long? I need to rejuvenate. I'm usually on the US, Asia and Carribean forums so I'm new here. I narrowed it down to Europe because I feel it's time to go back. Where should I go? Let's speculate. I used to believe anything is possible. A big part of me still does. I'm in good health and can do anything from mild to strenuous. I enjoy the finer things in life but don't mind roughing it once in a while if the payoff is worth it. Sky's the limit. I just need suggestions. There must be someone who has gone through this out there in cyberspace.

Thanks a million, Fodorites. I've been lurking many years. I thought about posting this on the Lounge but I don't want to use my real Fodors handle. I know. You don't have to say it. And no, I'm not a troll. Please just help me. I want to do this.
