Day 6 + The Great Sleep Paradox
What do I miss about not having this illness? - which one??
I miss feeling awake. Even a few years ago it wasn’t as constant, as unbearable as this. I miss not having pain - sometime back in childhood. I miss running around and doing kid things, climbing trees, going for walks that lasted hours and hours. •
Today I’m zonked. Trying to have a nap, but here’s the thing: chronic sleepiness does not always mean the ability to nap. Sometimes it means being trapped in a state of being too tired to function, but unable to rest. Go figure! •
I think part of my problem is feeling a pressing sense of needing to *do* something - which I don’t do because I’m tired, but still can’t let go. Trapped by my own wish to be productive.
Today I’m going to take it slow, drink water, read my @breathemagazine_australia and maybe a bit of Bible study. And when the day is through? I’m going to make a point of getting to bed at a reasonable time.
What does your self care look like today?
