I miss the woman I used to be

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. I had a torturous sinus migraine for five days last week. As soon as I recovered, I had to play catch up on life. I have a hard time figuring out how to prioritize. Which comes first? School? Blogging? HOA Board of Directors work? Life? Me? I just move them around like a game of Three Card Monte never sure of what goes where. In the meantime, here is a blog post I wrote a few years ago. I hope it will suffice in the meantime.

Another day of rest.

I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a vlog. Between traveling and preparing for my last semester of my Master’s, I haven’t had enough spoons to get one done. I wanted to reassure you that I haven’t forgotten about you all, nor have I fallen into a Lyme hole. I promise to return as soon as I need good procrastination excuses from my homework.

Today I am resting, saving up spoons and planning on going into my last semester with guns blazing!

Napping: to do or not to do?

I used to be the best napper. Seriously, I could lay down on the couch, in the middle of the day, in a busy apartment, fall asleep immediately, power nap for 15 minutes and wake completely refreshed.

In my post-Lyme life, this is one of the many things stolen from me. Post-Lyme I have to power through because I know as soon as I lay down, I’m down for the rest of the day. At this exact moment I’m tired: I’ve accomplished a lot today and I am spent. In my pre-Lyme life, I would lay down and take a 15-30 minute nap and get back to work. Post-Lyme, I fear that I will lose momentum.

This leaves me with the question: to nap or not to nap?

Make Hay While the Sun Shines

I’m finally feeling better! But now I have to try to not over-do it and land myself right back in bed. Today’s lesson is about finding balance while still making hay while the sun shines.
