I've been seeing a lady that I originally hoped would lead to a romantic relationship but I'm afraid it just won't happen. It's not that she's not interested, she is, and I like her, too. But she drains me. It could be that she suffers from depression as well but I don't think that's the reason. In any case, after I see her I end up having an anxiety attack, one that lasts at least a day. It's not always debilitating, but it's certainly enough that I don't like how I feel. It tends to make me want to sleep and eat too much. I need to break up with her and I don't feel like it's appropriate to do it any way other than face to face. I may not like it, but I'm that kind of a guy.
Then there's my19 year old daughter. She's been living with me since March of last year and I have adored having her with me. She left on vacation back at the end of June and today she called me saying she isn't coming home. I understand her reasons and do not fault her at all for her decision and under the circumstances I think it's the best thing. But I wasn't included in the discussion of the decision and it hurts. I feel rejected and cast aside.
It's a bad day for me and I just feel so drained and want to go back to sleep after a two hour nap already.
