This latest dull drum period lasted ~1.5 weeks. During the period I felt despair, confusion, lack of energy. Don't know what causes these periods to set in but I really do not like them. I'm very unproductive and unhappy during this time. I cannot be certain but I think the following three things helped me snap out of it 1) lots of rest, 2) exercise, 3) talking to someone about my "gay" situation. Anyone else get periods of despair and un-productivity? If so what do you do to snap out of them?
