Uppers and Downers

Woke up this morning and made my first cup of coffee in a 6 weeks this morning 🙂 .  Things are looking up!

I feel so much better than I did.  I’m able to walk places now, although walking to work and back tires me (only a 2-mile round trip.)  I am still working pretty much full time, although deciding if I should take a break or not.  I can take up to 6 weeks medical disability if I want to, but I suspect I would go stir crazy.

I am trying to stay at peaceful as possible, but my phone is ringing off the hook with work and other job offers.  It is a good place to be, but I am still a little tired.  Except for the occasional cup of tea, I haven’t had any caffeine for a long time.  The acupuncturist says my body is too exhausted to go to sleep or to rest itself.  I am not sure I believe him.  Sometimes I get the feeling that he is just telling me how exhausted I am so that he can can be in control.  I don’t FEEL that exhausted any more.

I don’t really feel like cooking a lot, though, so maybe there is something in it.  Last night I ordered from Luna Park, using a Waiters on Wheels certificate that a friend sent me.  (I keep accidentally referring to it as “Meals on Wheels”, which makes me sound about 100 years old! LOL!)  Acupuncturist wants to me eat fish stock (blech) if I won’t eat meat, and luckily they had a bouillabaisse on the menu.  YUM!  I should have taken a photo of it 🙂 .

  1. You quit coffee?! No wonder you’re exhausted! I think it took me 6 months to not feel like a train wreck every morning, and I am still the laziest man from mars…
