Still Here

I haven’t posted in a few days only because I don’t want this to be a blog about my daily ups and downs. That’s just boring and certainly doesn’t educate anyone else who may be going through similar situations.

My good days are good. I feel more energetic and there are no headaches, so I tend to do more. And by “doing more” that might mean an extra load of laundry on some days or walking five more minutes and perhaps trying to read more and maybe actually make a nice dinner. It’s not like I’m going grocery shopping, eating bonbons, going skiing and sipping champagne. Nothing quite as elaborate as that. In fact, after feeding the cats first thing in the morning and cleaning out their litter box, I have to sit at the bottom of the stairs to catch my breath and balance before walking back up the stairs.

But I still can’t seem to pace myself better on those good days and as a result I pay for it the next day by usually waking up with a headache and having no energy all day. Wanting to sleep is all I want to do. I know it will get better, but it’s still frustrating.

So, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it…like a have much choice. 🙂
