Anyone else snowbound by Nemo?

I'm really having a rough time with this blizzard. I woke up to find myself literally snowed into my house - snow is up to my waist and I can't open the door, which swings outward. I don't struggle with food at this point, but I FEEL "bingey", if there is such a thing as feeling bingey without the desire to binge. It has nothing to do with food but definitely includes a 'gnawing' feeling. I feel like an animal in a cave. If I liked tv, maybe I'd watch some. I'm finding it very hard to focus on anything, and I can't tell why. I try to read or write or do work or look at magazines, but I get distracted. It's very strange to be experiencing this in the absence of cravings for food. It's a little like boredom, but not quite.

I think I'll take a shower and get dressed as though I was living a regular day and then find some good HBO series to watch. I wish I had the energy to clean or do something useful, but I don't.

Summary: feeling this way is confusing, I don't like it, and I used to think it was an effect of binge cravings but now I see it functions independently of bingeing.

I meant to say 'animal in a cage', but 'cave' isn't far off, either. I wonder if I have PTSD or something. Some of my reactions to things - like feelings of claustrophobia (which is what this is) or fears about having my schedule disrupted and saving receipts of everything are similar to descriptions of people recovering from trauma of various kinds. Anxiety disorder, maybe.

Okay, executive decision: I will take a shower, get dressed, make a simple plan for my day, do a very small amount of housework while listening to an audiobook, have a warm, early dinner and then watch some HBO series and eat mint flavored M&M's. The Internet is making me obsessive though, so I won't be on here any more today. I'll catch up with you lovely ladies and men tomorrow!

peace and hugs,

katz
