I am dragging!!
Friday, May 29, 2009
For the past 5 or 6 days I have just had no energy. It is really frustrating to me because I am doing everything I need to be but am still dragging. I have still been eating well and going for a walk everyday but I just have really low energy. Last night I slept like 12 hours and did not get up early like I wanted to. Angelique got herself up and watched a movie before I even woke up! Now I am sitting here knowing there are a million things I could be doing but not really having the energy to do any of it.
Because of the low energy my food cravings have been really out of control. I am craving all kinds of sweet for days now! I am sure it is just my bodies way of trying to deal with the lack of energy but it really sucks! I have been working treats like ice cream into my plan so that I am not just totally denying myself but the cravings are not going away.
The lack of energy could be caused by several physical things but I am not sure what. I am currently having a bad herpes outbreak on one of my fingers that could have something to do with it. Sometimes the outbreaks don't seem to bother me at all and sometimes they seem to bring some flu like symptoms like with the first one. Since I had a bad reaction to all the medications for herpes I cannot really do anything about it except wait it out.
It also could be related to my depression. I have been on anti-depressants about two months now but maybe I need a little higher dose than what I have been taking. However I don't really feel depressed just have no energy at all, which is kind of depressing of itself. Also my allergies have been acting up and my eyes have been itching like crazy for days now so maybe it has something to do with that. Oh I also have itchy bumps on my left arm that I think could be an allergic reaction to the sun like my grandfather gets. Ok so I guess I am just a mess.
I am just frustrated by having no energy. I am on a break right now and I have a lot of things I need to be getting done while I can but nothing is happening. I am back to being crazy busy next week and I just hope I am ready for that when it comes. The constant cravings are driving me nuts and it makes it hard to keep eating well like I have been. Also the lack of energy makes going for a walk difficult but I still have been doing it every day.
Well enough complaining for now, I think I will go take a shower and maybe that will make me want to be more productive...
