For the last few days I have felt well and ambitious. Finally, today I had a list of things to do outside the house. Things were going well. When I walked, I was not wobbly. I felt like my communication skills were top notch. Some days, I have had a wobbly walk and words did not come.
Last night, I had three sleep sessions, interrupted by hours of wake and accomplishments. This morning I took from the crockpot a whole bowl of carrots and potatoes, two pounds of each. I was zipping around, making plans, making two lists.
Someone gave me 16 newspaper inserts of coupons. During one of my wake sessions, I clipped coupons and put a bag outdoors on the chair in front of the house. I had called my friend yesterday afternoon to come get coupons today.
Dominique was glad to see me with seeds from the bell peppers, carrot scraps, and chicken. I fed her much earlier than usual because I really felt well.
I got together broken Tupperware, my sewing scissors, lists, coupons, and a bottle of water. I took the Tupperware to a dealer who can get replacements for me. My sewing store guy sharpened my scissors. I bought groceries at WM and price-matched.
For only the third time I went into Aldi's and could not figure out how to get my cart quarter back. I was in there for only a short time. I carried my two items out in my hand and put them in a bag in the car. A bag costs a dime in Aldi and you bag your own groceries. That's okay.
Finally, I went to a third store. The cashier could not figure out what to do with a $4 coupon on a $3.68 package of freezer bags. All of a sudden I had no energy to deal with anything, I just needed to go and asked her repeatedly to just give me the coupon. She refused by ignoring and screaming for help. I was failing fast, so after asking her at least 8 times for my coupon and her refusing to do so, I just got the coupon by a long reach and left.
From that point on, I felt awful, tired, disconnected. It was all I could do to get into the house and put things away. My arms are still so heavy. I have been lying here for a little over an hour. I feel a nap coming on. Hopefully, this passes soon. There are things to do tonight. This whole week I have something to do, appointments, company, just more than I can think about.
Hopefully, this feeling will pass with a nap. This morning I was more energetic than I have been in a year. Right now a nap is overtaking me.
Do you ever hit the wall? Do you have to give up and rest?
