So, I'm feeling better. Really, I am. I can't give any specific example, but that overwhelming black cloud that has been hanging over me for the better part of a year, seems to have lifted. Living, just living, seems a bit easier. I still have my bad thoughts and what not, but in general, thinks just feel so much better.
That said, Thanksgiving is coming up. Despite feeling better, I don't actually want to do anything or go anywhere that day. I'm just in the mindset where I want to be on my own. I might be lonely, but that's ok. The thought of staying in my PJs and not having to make small talk, is really exciting to me. I can make exactly what I want to eat, and nap, and just enjoy the day.
I think that I shall tell each of my friends that has invited me somewhere that I am going somewhere else. And none of them are really friends with each other, so I'm pretty sure I'll get away with it. I will enjoy the solitude on Thursday.
