Starting but not Fini……

Some call it laziness, some call it procrastination I call it restlessness.

Call it what you will but I do have a tendency to start things and not finish (see what I did with the title? and you thought I had lost the plot!)

Restlessness is actually a symptom of depression!

restlessness – a lack of patience; irritation with anything that causes delay

This is a big issue for me especially the lack of patience. While I am happy at home when I leave the flat to go shopping or an appointment with Dr nothing drives me madder than long queues at the check out or appointments being late.

There is a sign at my Drs saying “If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment the Dr may not see you” and yet it is perfectly fine for my 4pm appointment to turn into 4.45 or 5.00 before you see me! And without either an apology or the receptionist informing me of the delay when I arrive!

And the next person at the supermarket who takes forever to get his/her money or card out of their purse/wallet/pocket is going to find out what a moose stampede feels like!

Restlessness and Irritability
You can never relax, and you never feel rested. It isn’t surprising that you would feel angry, irritable, and never at peace. Men may manifest this irritability by lashing out at the people around them, having a volatile temper, not being able to sit still, and perhaps even feeling angry at themselves for not being able to pull out of it on their own.

Makes perfect sense doesn’t it! I am lucky as I do have a short temper but not violent tendencies for me a good shout is about as violent as I get but that doesn’t make it any less scary for those on the end of my tirades. As I have said before my bark is a lot worse than my bite, but its a very bad bark.

Sometimes even a good cry can help! YES IT IS OK FOR A MAN TO CRY!!! Anything that causes you to release the frustration is good but never violence!!

Anyways to make you all laugh here is an example of what happens when you start something but don’t finish


looks good doesn’t it! for the record yes I finished shaving – there were too many strange looks at the shops to carry the look off!

  1. Restlessness, for me, is one of the worst symptoms of depression. I call it the stupidity elixir. Everything stupid seems like a good idea.
    I usually take out frustration on video games. Seems everyone in the game lobby does the same thing. Has to be FPS for the restlessness. Nothing like shooting someone the non-violent way to burn some frustration.
    Keeps me occupied until it passes. 🙂
    I love the half shaven look by the way
