Good Mental Health Day
Well, that didn’t happen!
I always look forward to my Wednesday’s when I know what to expect and things come pretty close to how I imagine and I was particularly looking forward to seeing my chiropractor because of how I had been feeling on Tuesday. After my trip to the city on Tuesday, I was feeling seedy at the start of the day, no idea again how I can be hungover when I don’t even drink and wasn’t even near anybody else who was hungover. Yes, I know it’s not contagious and neither was I.
I had my monthly committee meeting of the self-advocacy group I’m part of. Guess what other monthly event it coincided with? Hence the feeling like ‘death warmed up?’ (Subtle enough?) When I go to the city I do a lot of walking and despite feeling like a zombie I still managed 3000 steps. Got home by 3 pm and did a Face-Plant! Rolled over around 4pm and felt motion-sickness settle in.
Wednesday, everything was going to plan, was up and showered and dressed ready to enhance a small breakfast, harass Young John to ask him to scoop me up and deliver me to my favourite cafe in Cliffy Hill before getting to Chiro just after 2pm, when I wasn’t feeling super-hot! Ow, for those not familiar with when it’s good to see a chiropractor? Anytime is good, if you are not 100% even more important. So, I arranged with Young John if he could transport me down a little later, in time for Chiro? In the end by 2pm, I was back in PJ’s and back in bed. Eventually I had a cuppa T and a banana muffin for ‘dinner’ around 10pm, and it was the only thing I had all day. Eventually, Wednesday ended and Thursday began and while still feeling particularly seedy I’m again in my PJ’s, lucky today is my cleaning/admin day at home anyway. Have a lovely carer here today and I shared with her another banana muffin and cuppa T, my breakfast, her morning tea.
At least while someone was here my bread and butter pudding that was soaking in the fridge since Monday afternoon could get baked. “Which half do you want?” (She looked at me to see if I was serious) Have I mentioned there are a few things that when I make them, I don’t make single serves? I package, freeze, post to my administrator and give away. I’m a classic Nona. “You’re too skinny!” So, here is today’s offering straight from my oven. No, you cannot have the recipe. And while, obviously not being a standard mid-week foodie post sometimes it’s important you are aware I’m not always in the best of health and lack of sleep really takes its toll.
By Friday I’ll be able to pull it together again for one day only and rather than neglecting my commitment of 3 posts a week, please take this (slightly delayed) post as a near enough is good enough.
So, there are times I’m not feeling very well at all and I’ll still pull it together and power on through however, because people only see me when I’m feeling ok it’s assumed I’m always ok and I’m not stay tuned as next week I will be back to normal postings.
