How do you feel?

I had to look them up in the dictionary but this about says it.

torpor - noun - 1. sluggish inactivity or inertia. 2.  lethargic indifference; 

apathy  – noun, 1. absence or suppression of passion, emotion, or excitement.  2.  lack of interest in or concern for things that others find moving or exciting.


  1. I didnt know all that. I hope you get the garage sale stuff organized and get some $$ from it. Hopefully it wont be too hot.
    Have a great day! Hugs, Kim

  2. Yuck. I remember some of those feelings in my dark days. It is awful. I hope this doesn't describe your current feeling! Hang in there if it does! You WILL get better!

  3. I really hate to hear that you are feeling like this right now, but believe me, I know that feeling all too well. I try not to dwell on it and remind myself that tomorrow is another day. Often, the very next day I am fine. Sleep is another way I make it go away--don't know if that's good or bad--but heck I do what works. Sending sunshine your way with hopes this passes you soon.

  4. Thanks for the comment. Ah yes, sleep. A lot of the time I want to just sleep 'till I feel better. My husband doesn't understand this, no fault of his, but I'm sure glad someone does.
