Is it just me or was October a bitch?

The entire month my subconscious was processing something. I had trouble sleeping, trouble eating, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty getting motivated. I was sad, irritable, anxious, insecure, and had no appetite.  I had been feeling really good before October so all of these emotions came as a double shock.
