I know a deep deep sadness, too. It permeates everything. And with it comes a tiredness that doesn't go away with sleep.

I call on friends. I phone up and say, I am having trouble, can we go for a walk?

I like to reread books I really liked. It's about safety - I know I like them, I know what is going to happen, there are no surprises. It feels safe to read them.

I guess we need to allow ourselves our feelings. If you're sad, then isn't it ok to be sad? And shouldn't we try to figure out what it is that is making us so sad? Sometimes I panic,think there is something wrong with me that I'm so sad, and I have to tell myself it's ok, over and over again.

I also try to keep track of what I am dreaming. Sometimes my dreams talk to me when I can't tell what's going on.

All of this you probably already know. If you are lucky, you have friends to trust, or maybe just one, someone you can call and say, hey, I need my friend right now. This is a lifeline for me. SOmeone to take me outside and walk with me.
