This past month being sick has really put a kickin into me. I have had no energy at all and felt sick almost every day. This week I had an episode where I nearly passed out twice. Now I have a little machine to monitor my blood sugar. I can't tell you how many times I've gone out to do something, get the groceries, go out to dinner, or to a movie, and gotten so sick I had to come home. Last month I felt so good and this is just the extreme opposite. I've tried to continue to get in some exercise, and I've tried to log my food. But little by little I'm slipping. I don't want to give in to this discouragement. Its bad enough I have to be sick, I don't want to lose all the positives I've gained from joining spark.
Today I was supposed to get the groceries and go to Suzy Shier's to buy a couple new tops for work. I was looking forward to that. However, getting the groceries turned into a battle ground to stay upright again. I wouldn't have even gotten them if my husband hadn't been with me to help. So I didn't get to Suzy's but I did manage to get the groceries.
However, I'm really bummed out. I'm just so tired of being sick and tired, and I'm not coping very well at all.
I'm going to go to bed this afternoon and hopefully I'll be able to get up and go to work tomorrow morning.
Yup I'm singing the blues for sure.
