About this title.
You wake at four in the morning and stare into the darkness, thinking of all the things that are wrong with your life and the world. You feel certain that it has always been so and at the times you thought otherwise you were fooling yourself. Just as it starts to get light you doze off, and when the alarm rings you surface with difficulty from a blank, unrefreshing sleep. Then you either: • pull the blankets over your head and stay in bed until midday when you get up, watch the soaps without remembering anything about them and forget to eat; • drag yourself out to face the day, put on a brave face at work and hope no one notices how often you go to the toilets to cry; • appear in the kitchen in your pyjamas, shout at the family and when everyone is upset, throw on some clothes and storm off; • get up and drive round till the pub opens then settle in to drink yourself numb. You ask, what’s the matter with me? Is it just me?
