Struggling. Lots of pain and serious fatigue and the sleep issues are back in spades. Maybe it’s stress from contemplating knee surgery, although I’m not feeling concerned about it at all. Just the being away from home and Gertrude, maybe. Trying to remember everything I need to remember when I have little to no memory to work with.
Completely coincidentally, I just came across a fibro site while reading SLATE. It’s an Instagram site. I don’t have any real experience with Instagram, but anyway. Checking the site fibro inspiration, and one other mentioned on it Chronic Illness Cat, have brought home to me yet again how I am in denial. Pretending I am just having a bad day, or a bad spell, trying to justify to others WHY everything is a mess, or I can’t get this/that/whatever sorted, or not asking for help when I really, seriously need help. But then there’s the issue of there really isn’t anyone to ask. No one is going to come and sort this cluttery disaster I am currently living in. I always tell people that they can tell how well I’m doing by the level of clutter around me. Right now, the clutter has won the war.
This is the coffee table. More like the ‘I don’t have a clue what to do with most of this stuff, or the energy to do it, so here it sits’ table.
This is by where I normally sit. It’s all the things I don’t want to have to get up for, like pen and paper, tissues, mini-trash holder, etc. Not always able to just get up and get the scissors or whatever when I need them, so keep them handy.
Seriously, look at that desk.
One thing I discovered on these sites, is that I am not the only one with Prednisone Withdrawal problems. Some people mentioned they got through it, but I was off it for six months with no improvement. Life can be very frustrating at times. There was something else I wanted to say, but it totally escapes me at the moment. Okay, done whining for today. Thanks for reading.
THAT is clutter?? Yeesh, you should see my bookshelves and desks. I think I inherited Gram’s “depression era” gene. 😉
And please, please know that if I cod be there to help, I would.
Frustrating! Doesn’t actually look that messy, though. Just like a workspace. You need to keep stuff handy so you can do things. My living room looks bare at the moment because I had to clear everything out to paint it and I have only put back the necessities. I’m trying to prevent the flow-back of junk because we want to sell the house at some stage in the not too far future and I’m trying to unjunk it. The rest is still a work in progress. Ugh. Tins of paint, drop-sheets, brushes, stuff from in here…
Hope you feel better soon and get to enjoy some good days with less frustration! I was getting worried you hadn’t posted for so long 🙂
