As for the state of the wolfieboy, I would say that the situation that I'm in sucks but I'm not going through a "Wow! This sure sucks." emotional phase if that makes sense. I used this phrasing with a friend of mine and I think it fits. I am having some trouble sleeping but I'm doing the best that I can. I think the counselor we're seeing this evening is pretty good and expect that it will help. I need to look up what "Temenos Counseling" is.
Going to ritual on Friday did tell me that no matter how grounded I am, I need to do much work on my centering. I used to be very centered; I'm sure that I'll work my way back there again.
