Burnt Out or Depressed?; I Ramble: 11 January 2022

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.

I was not productive at all today and I absolutely dread having to turn up early for work tomorrow at 9.30am. Ugh.

I feel so tired all the time. I slept until midday but I still do not feel like I have had enough rest. I am just sluggish and heavy all of the time. My interests of singing and playing the piano did not spark any joy in me today. I did a little and then gave up on it almost immediately because I just was not up for it.

I do not know if I am just burnt out from long days at work since the start of the year or if I am just depressed. If I am burnt out, I need more time than just a day to get my sharpness back. If I am depressed, I know it is because my period is probably around the corner. I am already used to it being a symptom.

I kind of had to force myself to blog it out.

I did not receive the good news I was looking forward to today. Instead, I got a bad jolt unwittingly.


Even my prayer tree is looking shabby.

How to get into Heaven like this? 😥
