Swamped by a tide of hard feelings: wasted my life, squandered so many opportunities, don't even do things I enjoy doing, idle sod.

Realizing that this self-loathing arise from two principle causes (leaving aside the issue of whether any of those feelings might have a basis in fact): far too much time spent in front of the computer, and too little contact with live humans. The last person I spoke to face-to-face was the cashier at the supermarket, thirty-one hours ago.

[Updated two hours later] I considered taking this down, but have decided to let it stand. In the time since writing this I've had a good long conversation with Corvi and done the dishes and washed down the stove and countertops, and am now feeling much less frantic. I'm going to bed in a better frame of mind than I have done in a long time. Life goes on.

I've had times like that. They happen all too easily in a society in which we are expected to demonstrate personal independence. And yet it's such an intermeshed society; nobody's truly independent. Doesn't really make sense.

I have the same feelings. I try to blame the computer also, but realize it's just the way I am. Oh well, yes, change, not easy.

Do a lot of 'self-loathing' also... something to do with 'I shouldn't be this way' and looking down on oneself based on any judgements derived from that for me.
