I've been having a flare up for the last month or so, no doubt brought on by a mixture of changing seasons, severe seasonal allergies, sending my oldest off to college, and my divorce. I'm finally starting to feel a little more energetic, and have even been able to exercise more than once or twice a week! I'll tell you, I feel like someone's been slipping me sleeping pills I've been so tired, but then I wake up every hour or two with crazy dreams, pain, or having to pee way too often. I think the worst part is the crazy mood swings and general lethargic, almost depressed mood I've been in. I know I'm entitled to feel depressed and mopey after ending a 15 year marriage and all, but who WANTS to feel that way? It sucks. I've noticed that when I can't sleep well and I'm in a lot of pain, the moodiness and blah feelings soon follow; when the pain improves and I get a good night's sleep, they're gone, like magic. I wish I didn't have to deal with any of it, but at least none of it lasts forever; on bad days, I keep reminding myself of that. Sometimes I even listen to myself, hehe.
How's everyone else been? Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and then the insanity of all the December celebrations will be upon us in full force, whether you celebrate Christmas or Chanukah, or even Kwanza. It's so hard to make myself take time to exercise and rest when there's just so many things to do, like bake and eat, hehe. I hope everyone is doing well! Let me know how you are. Ever since the changes to the boards, it's been pretty quite around here.
