I don’t know if it is being without the Copaxone for over three weeks, if I’m just imagining it, or if I was headed for feeling this way anyway, but I can’t even seem to concentrate to read more than a chapter at a time of my latest book.
I have always been an optimist, but today, it feels like the wind is out of my sails.
On the good side of things, I am down a couple of pounds and sticking to the paleo diet. That makes me feel good, but the last three nights, I have had to sleep 11 hours and Friday afternoon, I even needed a two hour nap that I had a heck of a time trying to get up from.
I wonder if I just need a week of just resting. To me, it feels like such an indulgence. I can’t manage to work full time and nap every afternoon, so I have always been afraid to give in to an afternoon nap.
I know. I’m such a whiner! I need to suck it up and carry on! I need to give myself a pep talk and get on with it!
When is it time to say that I just can’t?
There are still some things I hope to do before the MS wins this energy battle.
I chuckle at work because the latest slogan at Enbridge is: Life takes energy. Well that’s pretty funny because that is the one thing that I seem to be in decreasing supply of.
Okay, here’s the pep talk: Straighten up! You are needed, so get yourself together and carry on! Meet the challenge head on like you always have and win! Slap that smile on your face and show the world that you can do it!
Okay, back together again.
God willing, we will share in another week of blessings and get through whatever is thrown our way!
