Maybe its just the decrease in sunlight or something, but in the last few minths I havent really been feeling myself. I dont feel like going out much anymore (mostly because i cant afford much), and when I do get out and about, I find myself keeping to myself a lot more than I used to. I just dont seem to have anything worthwhile to say, or start feeling anxious when friends bullshit with me. I feel like my jokes arent funny, or im boring them, and just wanna run away when people are all loud and carrying on. Its def weird, ive never had a problem socializing...

Am i just getting old? Depressed? Normal?

you might want to clean up your diet, especially in the winter to avoid the winter blues. another trick is to go to a greenhouse of some sort and hang out with the plants and the bright lights. Sounds like it might be a bit of seasonal affective disorder.

Paul, i think it has a lot to do with lack of playing music lately. And yep, def going DEAF (what?)

Josh, im outta work at 11am and i think my gf is off sundays, so count us in for lunch (if its after 1pm)

LF, good idea about the plants and stuff...

Its like im becoming more "shy"...and it is starting to mess with me.

Does that make sense? :lol:

Im not so sure, Sarah. I dont feel "depressed" just very anxious when im in conversation with anyone, recently, it seems. Sometimes even wen im just at home with the gf, and i start feeling weird because i feel i have nothing to say to her...even tho it doesnt matter, and she thinks i talk too mich anyway :lol:

Prolly puffing way too mich, and as I dont ever drink, maybe its messing with my socializationing
