Battling the National Depression

A quoted stat on the news last night claimed that 7 out of 10 Americans say they have been depressed since the attacks. This must be right, because I've been depressed, and all reports indicate I'm one of the more depression-resistant/happiness-prone among us.

Last Friday, I decided the most tangible thing I could do to help all of this was to go back to work and work hard. And yet that's been the one thing I haven't been able to muster the energy to do, at least not for very long at a time.

I know that working out will help, and other obvious things like getting enough sleep and having regular orgasms. And there are diversions that reliably improve my mood and energy, like going to Fry's and buying gadgets, or shopping for presents, or cleaning the house, or studying Spanish or JSP programming.

But getting some work done at work... that's the main thing I know I need to do to feel better. So I'm going to do that, real soon. After I finish this post, get my workout, and freshen myself up like a little daisy.

Off I go, determinedly, daintily...
