I sleep all the time and and mopey and groggy when I'm not asleep. My husband and therapist have both commented on it.
At a guess I'd say one factor was the approach of summer.
And another is my age. I recently turned fifty, and that was depressing enough. But a couple of weeks ago I read an article saying that many rescue groups won't consider people over sixty. The idea that I only have one more dog in my future is just devastating to me.
Then many people I know are reaching the age of infirmity and old age homes. I can't even imagine myself in an old age home. I don't much like people. How can I be warehoused with so many of them? Yet I also don't want to be an inconvenience to my son in my old age. I tell my husband to remember that should I die young. That the thought of being infirm, the thought of losing my loved ones (particularly him), and the thought of being in close proximity with a bunch of people scares me far worse than death. He got angry.
