Like life in general, this week has been a bit bi-polar. The negatives were VERY low and the positives were VERY high. I made my visit to my sister and it was both distressing and at the same time, it was reassuring. I am so happy that I we... Read more

Wednesday wasted away - why wasn't I even in Margaritaville?

Seriously, today I got more sleep but still minimal REAL rest because most of it was light sleep that never reached either deep or REM sleep stages. I was restless all night. I spent most of the day procrastinating and avoiding doing anything si... Read more

Tuesday, November 10, 2020      9 comments

Today was slow, tearful, and just a struggle. I even dragged myself to my appointment with my personal trainer. He read my face and offered to skip the session without any penalty but I thought it might do me good to push myself a bit. He made a... Read more

Nothing much going on but I am definitely exhausted. My brain is tired and my body is too. Not really sure why this week has been so exhausting. Definitely not going back to school next week and I suspect it may be much longer. I am content to b... Read more
