Well actually I do now, but for the last two weeks I haven’t. I have been struggling so much with everything that I’ve not even been able to write here – the safe place I started just to share my deepest feelings and emotions.
So! I’ve been tired, so unbelievably tired, and two trips away to different offices has floored me! I’ve been in pain with my joints, I’m struggling to walk up the stairs, the side effects have kicked in with my new tablets giving me the most awful stomach pains, and upset tummy – not the nicest thing when away and visiting other people. And the heat!!! The heat is just unbearable! And I hate that I can’t go and lie in the sun all day like I used to.
And I am just so down. And it’s hurting. I am such a positive person normally, and I just haven’t got the energy just now. I can’t exercise, my food has been awful, I’ve put weight on so all my clothes feel tight and uncomfortable. I’m not sleeping properly, and I’m constantly crying. My boss actually told one of the girls I was visiting to look after me as I’m not coping just now. I’m a complete and utter basket case. I know hubby is struggling with what to do for me too, as he’s never seen me like this, and it hurts that I’m hurting him, but I just can’t shake it.
I don’t remember ever feeling this down, even when I was in hospital for 9 weeks, I kept my positivity, and brightness.
I do know how far I’ve come, and how much better I am, but this just seems continuous, with no end in sight, and I honestly don’t want to do it anymore, I just want to curl up and go to sleep.
I’ve spoken to my consultant, and she thinks it would be a good idea to have a course of anti depressants – my idea just to get me through the next few months, to get me out of this downward spiral that I seem to have gotten myself into – so I’m going to make an appointment to see my doctor this week and hopefully things will start looking up soon.
