I did not respond to my mother's text. I adore her, but damn, today I just didn't want to hear her " chipperness! I didn't want to answer the how's ds1? How's ds2? Most importantly how are you?
And then the " well, blah blah today and whatever story she tells me to try and make me laugh. Couldn't do it.
Hell, DH texts that he's on his way home to which I normally respond great! Or awesome! Or something. And I didn't.
Poor guy thought I was mad. Not mad, just zapped. More than usual.... And obviously sleep is effed. I went to bed before ten, should have slept through the night with meds, well apparently not.

I had to push myself through the litany of " how was your day ? " questions with ds1 .... A very important part of the day to reconnect. Ds2 ( tot) didn't want to go anywhere today.... Highly unsual and something I depend on in order to force me to get dressed and push energy level up a tad.
Just a rougher day in the midst of rough days.

It's okay to do that once and a while.  I know when I am feeling depressed I don't want to answer questions or engage in small talk.  Just don't make it a habit.

Thank you, girls.... I hope so, too. As of right now, I'm in my "cave" and don't plan on moving unless it's to the bed for a nap.

I have blown off calls from my mom too, sometimes her efforts to 'help' are just too grating to take.  You'll catch a break here & feel more energy at some point, hopefully soon.
