Trying to recover…….

by Hannah the Zebra

This year the week after Easter happened to coincide with various meetings and medical appointments that I couldn’t get out of. It is usually my week to hibernate and sleep as much as I can. But I haven’t been sleeping as well as I had been a few weeks ago due to a change in medications, and every day seemed to have an appointment of one kind or another scheduled that required me to be alert and knowing what I was talking about. Not easy when exhaustion makes my brain feel like it is stuffed with pre-spun wool. For that matter, pre-carded and pre-washed as well. For those of you who have never gotten into spinning,  that means that the wool has just been shorn from the sheep and still has all the sticky lanolin and burs in it. Darned burs.

At any rate, I’m trying to take this week really easy and sleep as much as I can. And I have infusions at the end of this week, so I should be doing better next week. I hope. So right now I’m going to eat, and then try to go back to bed. This is my way of trying to accept that my body just can’t do what it used to.
