Cleaning Up Sick

I realized the other day that I’m unhappy. Not depressed, miserable, anxiety riddled, or on the verge of a meltdown, but just that general feeling of melancholy that means I spend my days in a touchy state of unhappiness. I may be doing worlds better as far as my illness goes.

Yes, I may have more energy, but I also have more pain now because I’m doing more. That delicate balance of taking care of me and taking care of life is something I’ve got to continue to respect if I want to remain on this trajectory…

So much exertion caused a vicious stomachache of epic proportions. I had to come home and lay on the floor in writhing pain for a while. Then I was shaky and weak the rest of the afternoon and evening.

Sigh…I forgot how hard this is. Nevertheless I did eat better, stayed off the sauce, and managed to annihilate myself by doing a little exercise. No, the laundry didn’t get done. But that’s what tomorrow is for, isn’t it? Provided I didn’t just send myself into an epic flare.
