Danium nominated me for the next one :stare:

I will not be offended if you ask 'Who are you?' :aww:
X.
Bullet; Red Mention something you want, that begins with the letter 'X' (optional).

Bullet; Red Before posting anything else, stand up, turn in clockwise circle, then an anticlockwise circle, then read the first sentence from this article, out loud en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:… (essential).

Bullet; Red Go on to Danium's userpage, declare your undying love for her and ask her how she'd like to take her tea (essential).

Bullet; Red Start a thread with another letter, but the same rules (optional).

:aww:

Years ago, I could waste whole weekends playing computer games, logged on to dA... killing time. Sometimes it was a bit tiresome, sometimes I enjoyed it. Either way I coped with it well enough. Idleness was fine.

Now, my life consists of periods of extreme intensity which last weeks, sometimes months. I will bounce from one thing to the next, and there is very little time between activities. These activities are mostly work related, and when not, usually something to do with travelling somewhere. (Three months of deployment rolls into office time into travelling to two different countries before back to work). It's relentless, tiring, but very engaging. It keeps my thoughts occupied. Then I'll stumble into a period of inactivity. I go from fifth gear and 7,000 revs to nothing.

It's terrifying.

I start counting the hours until I can sleep. Facebook is a demon. I reflexively check, without realising. Refreshing the same page until I catch myself and close the page, only to reopen it two minutes later. It's not based in logic. What might be a relatively busy day for most people is characterised by hours of intractable boredom. I'm used to hours disappearing in a flash. Now minutes drag by.

My mind, used to running at full speed thrashes itself to pieces over relatively simple problems. My mood plummets, and minor or major stresses come crashing in on me. The prospect of finding something to do for half a day or a day is almost too much to cope with.

Days or weeks ago, I would have simply stepped from one thing to the next, on a roll. But I've stumbled, my home becomes a prison and outside is unreachable and beyond my reach.

I'm used to crises. I'm used to high-stress. I'm so used to being 'out of my comfort zone' that home and normality--the things that are most peoples' comfort zones--is now unbearable.
