I am in a quandary, dear readers.
Getting P raid-ready has taken it's toll. The effort it's taken to gear and prepare myself for next week's foray into 10 man has worn me down. I'm ready, but at a price.
It could just be January, being cold and grey and getting me down, I suppose. It could be a side-effect of the diet changes I've made in an attempt to get healthier. Whatever it is, I don't know what to do next. I'm logging the Lock for her Transmutes (along with the Druid) and to do the JC daily. I'm healing the occasional five man on the Priest to make sure I can work out what to do, but my grand plans for a three toon Expeditionary Force have pretty much gone out of the window. There is no enthusiasm for levelling, shown by the fact that my husband's got a second 85 ahead of me for the first time since Vanilla. Let's be honest, there's not much enthusiasm for anything.
The big difference between this time and previous times (and yes, I've had my funks with the game) is the fact I feel I ought to come out and say something. Don't get me wrong, it's nothing to do with the fab people I play with (and they're all still there, give or take): I can't help but thinking I'm missing something here. I've read a more-than-normal number of these kind of posts too, across all of the social networking sites I use. I know I'm not alone, there are others feeling the way I do. There's even a thread on MMO offering suggestions on how to deal with this issue. Suggestions include levelling an alt (^^) or taking a break, but with 10 man raiding starting next week I really don't think that's a viable option.
I don't know what it is, but it's there, and this time around I think talking about my WoW problem is the way to go. I need to find some enthusiasm for anything, and I hope that by sharing with you I can start that path back to Cataclysm contentment. Suggestions and encouragement are both readily accepted.
