This Is Me Being Uncomfortable: Seasonal Affective Disorder (Ep. 003)

In this episode of This Is Me Being Uncomfortable, I mumble about seasonal affective disorder, low level depression, my son, and walking away from society’s norms

In this episode of This Is Me Being Uncomfortable, I mumble about the following:

  • Seasonal affective disorder
  • My son wanting to spend the day with me instead of going to pre-school
  • Our society’s (lack of) priorities

Listen to Episode 3

My current mental state

Also, I drew a picture of where I would sit if I drew a picture of my current mental state. I referenced this (at the time imaginary) drawing on today’s episode.

About This Is Me Being Uncomfortable

I’m not particularly comfortable or confident in speaking. As a matter of fact, I’ve often walked away feeling “stupid” after talking to someone. Hence, why I’m doing this: to face my fear. This Is Me Being Uncomfortable is a way for me to get my thoughts out of my head, and not always in written form. I’m fully aware that I don’t have the prettiest voice. You try being 6’4” tall from southern Virginia. Perhaps, I should add some soft music in the background, eh? If you’d like me to talk about a certain topic (writing, anxiety, meditation, life, death, and/or everything in between), contact me.

I made a jpg of my happiness level, but can’t post. It’s brilliant! BRILLIANT! (Actually, it’s not – it’s where I, a non-scientist, attempt to use a science metaphor. This is probably all for the best.)

There is NOTHING better than a Charlotte County accent. You can say anything and it’s exquisite.

Ha. It’s funny. I work with people all over the country (and often world) and they get a kick out of my accent. I will say, I don’t mumble quite as much as I once did.

Hi Jeff! It was nice listening to you. Your voice sounds a lot like your dad’s. I love the way you think & ponder the mysteries of life, and then share those musings with us. You rock!

Hello Colleen. Thanks for listening, even if it was painful. Ha. I think of it as pulling a thread and seeing where it will go. Sometimes that’s nowhere. I can hear my dad’s voice in my own now. Funny how that happens over time, particularly as you get older. I don’t mind. Nice reminder.
