It’s been almost 2 weeks since my last IV. The energy from that lasted a lot longer than I thought it would, which was so cool! But it did eventually catch up to me, and I crashed. I’m starting to call those days my “slug” days. I simply cannot get any energy to do much at all, and generally sit around watching tv. I hate being like that. I want the energy to get out and do stuff, or to interact with my kids. But, I had over a week of good energy this time, so I think it is worth it!
On Friday we had a BBQ party outside. A friend of mine and I also went to garage sales in the morning. Add to that it was a short school day, and the kids had a friend over after school, and I ended up pretty exhausted. I remember thinking at one point, when getting food from the kitchen to take outside, to just keep moving. I kept telling myself to keep my feet moving, because if I didn’t, I might not start again! I guess I have a pretty strong will, to be able to keep going when my body says to stop. Not sure if that’s the smartest, but……
Anyway, Friday was a totally full day, from 6 in the morning until 9 at night. And guess what Saturday was like? CRASH!!! I could barely do anything.
And yet, we had work to do. So, I picked myself up off the floor, and we went out to our camper and spent 2 hours on Spring clean-up. Six loads of laundry followed that at home. By the time evening came, I was pooped again. I took a Valerian, just to make sure I slept good. Now, it’s Sunday morning, and I feel okay. It’s sunny, so I know I’ll push myself this afternoon outside. It might be my only chance for a while to create my herb garden, so I need to get it done. I’m glad tomorrow is Monday so I can relax, and then on Tuesday I have my next IV.
I hope the next one lasts as long as the last one!
