It can feel like walking through custard, and looking through a pea-soup fog when you’re down.
It may seem as though you’re living your life in slow motion.
Incredibly, however, even through all of this, it’s still sometimes possible to have moments of great clarity in the midst of despair, transient though they may be.
Tantalisingly you can see solutions to your problems — although like waking up from a dream, they soon vanish into thin air.
But it does make you wonder if perhaps there is a reason you end up at a low ebb.
Unpleasant though it is, maybe it forces you to confront the things in your life which contribute to your malaise, making you do something about them?
Of course, you probably don’t have the energy to make much-needed changes when you’re deep in gloom.
But if you find yourself in this situation, and the inspiration strikes, try to write down your ideas.
They’ll make more sense when you’re feeling better.
Because you will feel better.
