I just feel like a complete and utter mess today. I ended up ringing in sick because I physically couldn't stop crying - this has never, ever happened to me before and I feel completely ridiculous. Nothing specific has happened at all, I can't put my finger on it, but the thought of going to work just makes me feel sick. I've felt a bit vaguely down for ages, loads of people at work have commented on it as I used to be so cheery, just figured it was winter blues but nothing like this has happened before... I'm just sitting here with a load of tissues crying my eyes out (resisting the urge to ring my Mum, quite sad when I'm in my twenties), and no idea what to do. I don't want to go to the doctors because it's just one really bad day and I don't want to blow it out of proportion, and I also feel dreadful because I lied to work - somehow couldn't quite tell the truth of 'I can't stop crying' as it makes me feel just ridiculous. I don't even know why I'm posting - I just needed a ramble I guess. This has never, ever happened to me before and I just feel completely stupid. I'm only in my second year of teaching... and this has just come from out of the blue. I feel so ridiculous as some people in the world have real problems, and just keep telling myself to get a grip, but still can't stop crying.
