For some reason I go through stages of Angst which usually consist of some form of social withdrawl. I wish to be alone, alone with my thoughts and feelings. Always I have managed to come to terms with these feelings, sometimes in a few moments, some times in weeks, months or even years.
For some reason, recently while driving home from work late at night, I was overcome with a feeling of dread, dooom or what I believe to be angst. Often I can hide these emotions by enclosing myself in retreat mode. If necessary I can usually hide them while in a social situation, I can put on a pretty good act.There are times this is not possible.
Today I am home, full of angst but thankfully I am alone and have no commitments. I spent some time in the kitchen baking a few batches of muffins, at least my house smells good and there is something comforting to eat.
