I was told yesterday that "maybe my body doesn't need that much sleep and I should listen to my body. The legs are signaling me to get up and do something." The same person told me "Drink a 5 hr. energy shot a half hour before I have to get up so when my second alarm goes off, I will have a surge of energy." ................4 people around her chimed in to say
that all of my medicines are making me old before my time because I slowed down a lot since starting them.
I put up with this crap everyday and though it comes from a loving place, it sucks.
I have to bite my tongue because I haven't the energy to fight it. I just say,
"interesting that you have that theory and tell them that I will talk to my doctor
about what you suggested." Then I go away steaming from both ears.
Another one that I was told by multiple friends at a temp job that I started is
that I am probably allergic to wheat and gluten products and that I need to
get that stuff out of my system with a good "flush" by drinking a solution
that will clean me out from the inside to my pores. Apparently taking a good
poop will cure me. haha. (it's not really that funny as they are very serious)
Someone bought me a kit to cleanse this weekend. I have it on my bathroom
counter to remind me to "Think before I speak"
A dear old man that I care about deeply gave me a bar of dial soap to
place between my sheets and swears by it that it's powers will combat
this terrible urge to move my legs. I think that he was referring to aroma
therapy. (Dear God, I hope that I do not stink and he was hinting)
I have dedicated an hour to do nothing but write down my worries as
I was told by clergy to do. I have a candle that I light to signal to the
family that I am in meditation to worry, to put down on paper every
worry that I can think of. ..It's done quite the opposite desired effect
on me. I find thoughts creeping into my head randomly during the
day that I wouldn't have normally thought about. None of those thoughts
are very pleasant. Sometimes I want to punch out someone for all of
the misery that comes to mind. = / (I would never do such a thing)
I have taken up volunteering. Sure it makes me tired especially if it is
heavy labor which I do give into when the need comes up... It makes
me wonder why I would work so hard, do so much for no money. I, myself
am hurting for money. Sometimes the only thanks that I get is a cool
drink of water or donated doughnuts which I can't pass up. =) .
