Trying to check bank account on phone, Gertrude decides it’s a great time to wreak even more havoc than she already has today. Had to play through the thing twice. Sometimes she is just so…. is there even a word? Annoying doesn’t do it. Good thing she’s cute. Good thing she’s cute.
I have been still struggling with getting back to some semblance of functionality since I was sick, but it is just not happening, I give up. I am buying frozen meals, because cooking is just not going to happen. Did you know there are some really good frozen meals that aren’t those dreck Lean Cuisine type crap, but real food? Trader Joe’s has some really good stuff, and now Shaw’s does, too.
I am really frustrated with being exhausted all of the time. I know it’s part of my illness, but it’s not always this bad. I cannot seem to come back from being sick. I am taking B-vits and D3 and eating protein and drinking a lot of water and nothing is helping. I slept pretty much all day Thursday and all night Thursday night. Better yesterday, not so good today. At least the pain is not so bad. My first rheumatologist told me that if you have more pain, it’s fibromyalgia, if you have more exhaustion, it’s Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It’s two sides of the same problem is what he said. I started with CFS, morphed into fibro, and have waffled back and forth over the twenty years. Right now I seem to be in the CFS phase.
Hey, at least I am getting a LOT of reading done. Read a book called Longitude, which was very interesting at first, explaining how dangerous sailing was before they figured out how to find longitude, which took centuries. Lots of lives lost because they really had no idea where they were. The second half of the book was just not my thing. It was mainly about how horrible people can be. I already knew that. Read another good book, but for the life of me, I cannot think of the name. I just read it yesterday. Sheesh!
Still no luck with getting laptop to actually work like it should. It is so unbelievably slow and frustrating. Things just don’t load or take ten minutes, when they used to take ten seconds. I need to call Verizon, but I just don’t have the mental energy right now. I know. Whiny Jean is whiny. Oh, well. 🙂 This is not Gertrude, btw. 🙂
My job is ending next month, and it’s because they wanted to hire me full-time and I can’t physically do 40 hrs every freaking week, nor go into the plant and breathe the chemicals and rubber. Another Fibro ARGH.
I just finished The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, based on an actual family in Kentucky.
I think not working in a toxic environment is a good thing, can you get some sort of benefits or unemployment or something? The US does not really take care of its citizens very well, unless of course you are a rich old white man.
