Feeling Much Better but Taking it Slow

(I finally pulled my camera out and took a decent picture)

Getting Sick When Immunosuppressed Sucks!

 

Return of the Sleep Problems

Well the title pretty much says it all. For a while now, I have been sleeping great. I was falling asleep on my own, no pills and I was staying asleep! It was great! But last week insomnia crept back into my life; I am talking staring at the dark ceiling for 5 hours and continuously getting up to write some random thought down. So of course I am a zombie the following day both physically and mentally. So I picked up some cannabis oil because this was clearly going to be a phase that I would need help getting through. But then I took too much (sometimes it can be hard to dose) and I went from “not getting enough sleep” to “getting too much sleep” which also makes me feel like a zombie. I can’t get too little or too much or else I have to pay the price of feeling like garbage the next day. I have just been so out of it! I just want to be back on a healthy sleep schedule!

Pushed Myself too Hard, New Puppy and Lab Work

So I pushed myself too hard the other day. I have been really exercising since my second round of Lemtrada and the other day I decided to step it up a bit and push myself even harder. It felt good but I definitely wiped myself out and the next day I knew I had pushed myself a bit too hard. For the next week or so I felt extra tired, extra dizzy, my balance was extra horrible and I felt kind of weak. I say extra because not a days goes by where I don’t feel all of that at some level. I just didn’t want to get up and move. This led to me not eating as well and abandoning my daily routine of keeping myself going, eating right and writing. So I have just been letting my emails back up and taking it easy but yesterday I felt I was ready to slowly start getting back into my routine except it is still a bit different since we adopted a new puppy; lot’s of work!
