Breathe

For quite sometime, I have felt amiss my good self. I am getting irritated, losing appetite, not concentrating at work, fighting with whoever comes online.

I switch off my cell and claim, “now, I have no addictions” but after 10 minutes I switch it on and in fact ask someone to give me a missed call just to check if it still rings. The cycle has been repeating.

Is it PMS or is Doomsday coming? Is it the dreaded disease loving-a-bastarditis?

I need to breathe, I need to breathe. Inhale, Exhale, Hee Haw… Hee Haw...

Take a break. Go trekking, river rafting... or just walk through a tea estate. You need to relax. All else falls into place when the mind is calm and at peace. Take care.

You know what...
Retail therapy - its the best.

Just go out and pamper yourself.

If its PMS you know what to buy..if its Doomsday - get that stab of comfort choclate and if its the L.A.B. then ...God help you! :D

1) contact mom
2) contact friend
3) contact boyfriend
4) read up ones fav. psychoanalytic novel

Hee haw hee haw? Maybe it's living the life of a donkey that's doing this to you.

10 minutes is quite a long time gap. I feel that you dont care abt missed calls anymore. Calling thy coveted Hugh Grant a 'bastard' is not helping either.

Me said...

take a break.....try some yoga or pranayam....

Goan Pao said...

In the words of the famous Roger Waters...
Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don't be afraid to care.
Leave but don't leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.

Dreamcatcher said...

you could throw out your phone, go dancing to chase away the blues or go shopping - retail therapy always works.

For you:

'Breathe'

You can't seem to take the people,
nor able to channelise at work.
Concentration's shot, enthusiasm's feeble,
At every corner you see depression lurk.

Don't worry, and take your time,
there's no need to "everything's okay" mime.
Let it all out, and please don't seeth,
If anything, just breathe.

alpha said...

AmitL said...

Arunima,when was the last time u took a one week or more break from work??:)All anxiety symptoms will vanish once u do take one...:)As for the cell phone thingy,hahahaha.....welcome to celladdiction.At least u dont do what some people I have seen doing:
1) Put cell in pocket,take out in one minute,look to see if someone called,put back in pocket....
2) Call from the landline,to hear the ringtones, if the cell does not ring for long.
3) Keep cell on table, and keep rotating it like a top and watch the world,err,cell go round...and round...and round...
(OOPS...hope I didn't give u some more crazy ideas??)

Stone said...

Just chill chill just chill...(repeat 7 times).

Arunima said...

@AmitL: lol. I almost did that.
@Stone: Nice song by the way.
@Ash, Missnupur: Retail therapy was interesting until a few months back. Window shopping is better. I'll try that.

Reshma Sanyal said...

The symptoms are dangerously familiar to LAP - Lovingapimpitis. Been there, and needless to say, done that.

Arunima said...

@Rs: after that?

Reshma Sanyal said...

Repent. Repeat. :-)
