I fell on black days...

Thanks Chris Cornell and Soundgarden for that song title and lyric, but it's so apt for my life at the moment. I woke up yesterday and looked in the mirror. My eyes were bloodshot and I felt very tired. I thought to myself, 'I've a pile of letters to open and read, a lot of unopened emails and my finances are in disarray. I feel pressure at work and I feel pressure keeping up with my friends. And outside my passenger side wing mirror on my car is cracked following a little collision that I had the day before.' I realised - my life is slipping out of control.
I felt so down and lethargic I went to bed at 8.30pm yesterday evening and struggled to get out of bed this morning.
I went to work today looked around and thought "f**k 'em". I just done my job and didn't worry about hitting targets at work or anything. Who cares if our manager gave us all a hard time again?
Somehow the day went okay. And I've made inroads into my pile of post and emails that needed attention. I'm not finished yet.
