Tired of feeling exhausted
I didn’t sleep well last night. I woke up around midnight and then woke up at 4. I couldn’t go back to sleep. I just lay in bed and half snoozed. I kept using my damn shoulder as a pillow so would wake up in pain or my arm was asleep. I couldn’t find a spot that didn’t include my shoulder no matter how many pillows I put under my head. I tried going back to sleep once I took my morning meds but I didn’t succeed. I made iced coffee and it was good. I like the ice function on my keurig. I am definitely going to use it this summer.
After I had my coffee, I checked the bus schedule to see when the next bus to the Square was. I just missed it so I fiddled around until it was time for the next bus. I was so tired, I didn’t really feel like getting dressed but I needed to get my blood work done. My back was giving me fits while I was getting dressed. I knew this wasn’t going to bode well for me. I am so tired of being exhausted all the time. I had gone down the stairs to leave when I realized I forgot my mask. I had to go back to my room to get it. This made me feel more exhausted. I nearly fell asleep on the train to the hospital. I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. I had to stop twice while walking to the building I needed to get to because my back was spasming. After I got my bloods done, it took me a while to get back to the station. I just felt like I was walking in mud. Every step was so tiring.
I came home and had something to eat. I hadn’t had anything to eat most of the day. All I had was coffee. I had a cold cut sandwich and some ice cream. I tried to eat the ice cream fast because it was hot in the kitchen but it was too cold for my teeth. I had to let it melt some. I wanted to go to the store to get Oreo ice cream but I was too tired to go. It would have killed me and I was already expended. I nearly collapsed after I ate. I tried taking a nap but I couldn’t relax enough. I just laid down and closed my eyes. I shut my light off and tried to rest but then my blood results came in and I had to look at them. My white count is normal but my inflammatory marker isn’t. I am not surprised. I know I have a lot of inflammation going on with the CRPS. Sadly, there is nothing they can do to bring the level of this marker down. Nothing to keep it from going up either. Just one of the things to keep an eye on.
