Isolationism

Mike got evicted again and is probably moving out of the state by the end of the month.

I’m seriously considering a therapist and for more reasons that ‘everyone else it doing it’ (even though they are.) After reading this article, I feel better about feeling like shit lately. As I said in the past, I feel ok I guess. I don’t really feel depressed, when I’m awake. It’s just everything else in my day to day routine (or lack of one) points to something’s going on. I sleep from about 11am to 11pm – dragging myself out of bed only because I have to go to work.

While in New Orleans, other than seeing Randy out once or twice and running into Lloyd on the street once and Mark coming over once I don’t think I’ve any significant interaction with people in a couple of months – certainly not since I’ve been back from DC.
