Well, my sleep is still majorly screwed up. I (somehow) manage to get to work on time when I have to be there early (I think my brain knows that I have to get up and makes it happen), but when I don’t, I can’t fall asleep and then I sleep for 12 hours. I don’t need 12 hours of sleep. It’s just not a thing. I don’t wake up rested or feeling well. I wake up tired and out of sorts. But my pdoc is kind of MIA as he settles into his new role. He said we’d start scheduling by April, but here we are at the end and I haven’t heard from him. I think I just may make an appointment with my PCP and see if he can sort it out. I just can’t seem to force myself to go to sleep when I don’t have to be up early the next morning. I don’t know what to do. The days that I work late end up being a bust because I sleep until noon.
Anyway, here’s the highlights of the week.
- despite the sleep issues I’m mentally feeling pretty good. Mood is stable, anxiety is manageable. I just wish I wasn’t tired all of the time.
- diet was good most of the week, weight goes up and down seemingly in tune with the weather. It’s like a two step forward, one step back kind of thing.
- Work is good. Nothing new and interesting to say about it.
- Managed to be a bit social last week – had dinner with a friend, my stepbrother’s birthday party, and then last night my parents came over for pizza. And of course, I managed to spend some time with Mike.
Last week was honestly pretty boring. I’m just tired all of the time.
I hope everyone has a great week. Stay safe, friends!
