Man I am tired!
Lots of stress brought on by tons of personal drama + mother/wife/adulthood + work = me being in a long flare. The longest I’ve ever been in actually. I’m basically a zombie at work…staring at the computer working, trying not to move if I don’t have to stretch, only speaking when spoken to and counting down the hours until I can get home to start my second job (mother/wife/adulthood).
My stress won’t be over until October. So I’m trying to hang in there in the meanwhile. I keep thinking about doing yoga, but I’m so, so tired in the evenings post-baby bedtime. And I’m now required to be at work earlier…which means I have to get to bed earlier. The earlier wake time is brutal. I’m super sore and stiff in the morning still…and my mood is not pleasant. Honestly, at this point I’m just trying to make it day by day.
Also, I’m on prednisone (20 mg) and trying to wean off but with this flare it’s just not happening. I find that I’m having to pee a lot lately and this morning I woke up to black spots on my tongue! A quick Google search calmed my fears, but still. I have an appointment with my GP in a month, and one with my Rheumatologist in two weeks. I’ll have them check those symptoms out.
In the meantime, I’m just going to try to eat responsibly, get as much rest as I can (lol) and try to stay awake at work. 🙂
