In Which the Protagonist Has a Nervous Breakdown

I'm sicker than a dog (persistent, full-body, hacking cough, runny nose, headache, trouble sleeping), it looks like I've started running a fever, just got back an email reject from the Agent about the book (to be fair, it was very nice, and another request for a revision rather than a total reject), I am having trouble eating, I keep bursting into crying fits at work (me, yes ME), and I want to curl up into a ball and die. And my period is starting.

And I'll be 26 next week.

I'm going home now and drinking tea and watching mindless television.

Of course, even that may be more than I can bear right about now.

3 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

Sounds miserable. Are the agent's comments reasonable or way off?

Hang in there K. And order up more grog. Or beer, whichever is more handy. Cheers & fell better, 'VJ', ga.

I had that whole bursting into crying fits at work thing going on for me this past weekend--weird, stress-related (I think) cries for me, but seemingly not caused by anything in particular. For me, I realized that I hadn't worked out in 4 days straight (having a cold can do that)...or at least that's what I'm chalking it up to.

Hope you feel better.
