It is hard. It doesn't last forever. Every now and then something dispels it, but for the most part I am a difficult person, difficult for myself AND difficult for you. I have tried to positive-attitude myself out of it, which of course doesn't work, but it does prevent things from spiraling into absolute looneytown at least 75% of the time. If you have been pregnant maybe you know what I'm talking about, but also maybe not, because nothing in this realm seems to be universal. I just have to remember: someday this dementor will be a very funny two-year-old.
