Sleepathon

This weekend I'm on a big sleepathon. I haven't picked up energy wise since my oncologist trip. The best thing I can come up with is the lowering of my medications is affecting me. I just haven't been able to get up for any reason. I try assessing it, how I feel etc. Is it my mind bogging me down? but I always come up with the same thing. It's my body.

I've tried getting up to see if it makes me feel better. HELL NO. Back to bed for me. I sent my kids up to my parents for the weekend to try and recoup a bit. I'm not much of a parent when I'm not functioning. I get snarly and short tempered and hide in my room from them. (they feel like large, handsome teenage monsters) I think good parenting includes knowing when to ask for help. I've never been one to do that before. The first time, in fact was when I started crashing from the Leukemia.

I want to feel better.

I WANT to do laundry, clean the house etc. I never thought I would ever utter those words.

So, for now I will be watching the last season of LOST on DVD and sleeping. I suppose it's a Lost-sleepathon. I'll be taking pledges.

Hope you are getting lots of rest. You are such a trooper. I so enjoy reading your blog. Your approach to all you go through always seems so positive. Do you know that you are an inspiration to others? YES, you are.

Enjoy Lost! Oh man, I'm such a lost addict too. And we always get it so much later here in the UK. Boo.
