Lifer's Block

You are probably familiar with the concept of writer's block--a perhaps fictional anomoly that causes those who write to, for whatever reason, fail and stall and generally lose the ability to write well. I have a friend who would argue that there is no such thing as writer's block and that he could write a song about anything at any time if he wanted (personally, I think he's being idealistic in an attempt to stay positive in life rather than negative like me).

Anyway, I am in the midst of lifer's block, which works in much the same way as writer's block--except that with lifer's block, it's life in which I have lost the inability to do well and I constantly, and consistantly, fail and/or stall at. This, of course, makes lifer's block about a thousand times worse than writer's block. With writer's block, one may still have the ability to cook well or socialize well, but I seem to have lost such abilities and find myself unable to do anything well…
