The Move & The Musing
Comments like those on my last post help me to realise how awesome my friends are. I might not have the most popular blog with heaps of comments, but the comments I get are valuable to me and help remind me that I am not alone.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
We are now moved into the new place and I am taking a few days of rest (at least). The day of the move, my body nearly quit on me. Even though I was mostly just directing the movers, the heat and humidity (after days of packing in heat and humidity) got to me. I thought about the comments made on my previous post and I quit before my body quit for me.
I am experiencing the effects of pushing so hard, even at the end of a day spent mostly on my bum. Headaches come and go, my energy is lacking most of the time and I’m even having problems with concentrating and understanding other people talking.
This sounds serious, I know, and I am taking it seriously. One of few stops today was to the supermarket, where I got the things I know will help get my system back the way it should be like vitamin C, probiotics, etc. I’ve also been doing as Nicki suggested and just staying in the present, being aware of what’s happening now rather than continuing to run lists in my head like I have for the past month.
Talk about a cure for sleeplessness.
One thing this move has really taught me about myself is that you can’t confront your barriers with one, huge step. If you’re afraid of heights, you don’t go out skydiving on your first attempt to beat the fear. One of my ‘ticks’ has long been an annoyance that gets downright panicky if plans are changed or things are left up in the air too long. Pretty much everything about this move has last minute, up in the air, waiting to hear from people before rushing off, not knowing what the rest of the day is going to be like let alone the rest of the week…
While I never thought about it until I was able to stop and rest, I have been slamming up against that wall pretty much constantly for the past weeks. Pair that with driving a decent drive every weekend, getting jostled around by rude real estate agents… I am just grateful that The Bloke didn’t end up in as rough of shape.
Vitamin C and probiotics won’t fix everything, but I already feel better with my first decent night’s sleep. A few more of those, vitamins and slowly improving my energy levels with exercise, and I’ll be right as rain in no time.
Thank you again to Hanlie and Nicki. I still too easily forget that I have wonderful friends who wish me well.
