I don’t know…the term just seemed to fit. I am normally a rock-solid, stead person, but lately I’ve been feeling these tremors… There’s been a great deal of shifting and grinding and melting going on under my emotional crust. It also seems I’ve been watching way too much of the Science channel. These feelings have been building up for weeks. I can feel the pressure rising and I have no vents to release it.
Not that I have no one to talk to about it—I have a few close friends who would listen. The problem is that nothing changes. I am making no forward progress in my life right now, and it feels as if I must work constantly to avoid slipping backward.
