When I Return from a Trip

Tuesday, January 11, 2011


Invariably, when I return from a trip—a few days or a few months, it matters not—I fall into a low-grade depression, what I call Post-Trip Funk (or PTF). Symptoms of PTF include lethargy, sleeplessness (or sometimes sleeping longer than usual), irritability, loss of appetite (or sometimes ravenous hunger), spatial disorientation and a marked tendency to pick up one’s home phone and ask for reception. (Eric Weiner, Post-Trip Funk)

i call this "jet lag". :)

i think PTF may require PFT (pulmonary function test).

it's more like kasadutan, don't you think? or aversion to my life's daily routine. :)

Angeli said...
