Sticks and stones, the saying goes, may break my bones
But, words will never hurt me.

I'm not sure what it is - words, actions, trends, ideas - but everything feels painful right now. I feel like I'm walking around with no skin on.

I do recognize that my response is out of synch with the stimuli, and that it is building towards, or has already, reached hypersensitization.

I need a hard reset. Someone to find and firmly depress the secret hidden spot behind my ear.

But I'm not an iPod/Palm Pilot/other mechanical device, so I must find ways to recalibrate on my own. To this end, July is the month of Me.

The plan is: work, Netflix, library books, gym, and swimming pool. Rinse, lather, and repeat.

Just writing it, I feel a little more serene and I can draw my breath in a little deeper.

whatever's keeping you down, i hope you don't stay there too long! your 'directions' for feeling better sound great. i have some variations to that recipe, but it approximates the same results.

feel better. be strong. have faith in your own recalibrating tools.

Niiice. Super ideas for a recharge. I need to come up with my own Month of Me celebration tactics. Maybe it's Reading (by the pool), Writing, Team Sports and Yoga.

I think I'm feeling better already - just knowing that I have The Plan. Oooh - yoga, good point!

Boy, can I ever relate.
