Having been up half the night reading useful books - combined with Paddy's latest upload on Fatigue, I have a terrible urge to go back to sleep. However a nice crisp day here with the added effect of a the moon still out there. I have not loaded a blog on here lately, having been writing an ongoing diary elsewhere due to my recent diagnosis of hypothyroid and tired adrenals.
I find that keeping a light, and amused diary stops me wanting to hurl all second hand books ordered via Amazon, on all conditions, out into the garden from my bedroom window, I have developed a mono brow as I have frowned my way through them all. However as some are hard backed editions I now have a useful platform of them on the floor, very useful for reaching up to the top of my cupboard for presents I have forgotten I have already bought!
I think we all agree that the tiredness that Hughes give us is maddening, and lots of us appear to have several things, and at times, not able to sleep - grrrrr etc. So lots of conditions all feeding into fatigue and its associated irritations. The only benefit from having insomina and fatigue is being able to watch re runs of the Dame Edna show late at night!
My delights are Hughes, psoriatic arthropathy, sjgroens, hypothyroidism and adrenal fuss! I am currently working with a well known practitioner to sort this side of things out, (the hypothyroidism/adrenals) So far, some very practical help and some realistic progress. Also this week, getting up at some awful hour to travel into London from the outer sticks with my daughter to go to St Thomas, after we have finished being collective pin cushions, we will then go and meet my eldest son for an exciting lunch we hope.
Today's project, whilst moaning continually about tiredness will be to shift the mountain of internet shopping from the hall and make room for the builder's to finish my downstairs bog and shower, nearly there, after which i shall retire for a short rest and plan Christmas menus whilst filing my fangs.
