Today’s been a lousy day to quote my mother as she used to say. I slept the entire day. I’ve had a migraine pretty much non stop since early December. The insomnia has been bad and I guess I needed to sleep to catch up.
I had several articles saved in draft for the week but the migraines have really worn me down. So, I apologize for the low effort content. I will get these articles finished over the weekend and share them with you as soon as I can.
To learn more about chronic medical conditions and what it’s like to live with migraines and insomnia, check out my Living Well series. There are lots of in depth articles on what it’s like to live with chronic pain.
I’m on new medication for the insomnia which is stress related and also hormones – and it just makes me want to sleep all day. But not at time night when I need it most. I don’t like taking medications if I don’t have to, but the insomnia — it starts to make you feel a little crazy and hyper-vigilante after a while. Yes, that’s a word. I wrote about it recently.
Today’s also a “day off” from creating art and dealing with phone calls. Sometimes you just need to unwind. The stress of everything going on behind the scenes is starting to get to me.
So, I’m taking my own advice that I preach to you about self-care and taking the night off from pretty much everything. Time to put my feet up, play some Minecraft and watch some dumb rom-coms I think.
I will leave you some of my top articles of the past year for you to enjoy.
Thanks to all my newest followers. Appreciate all your comments, likes and engagement!
