I’ve been struggling since I held a Cake Break on 3 May (raised £265 btw, big whoop!), and totally wore myself out as I’m still recovering from a relapse in March. Last week, all I did was work and sleep. Our evening meal was eaten at anywhere between 7pm and 8pm as I kept sleeping through my evening alarm and my son will just sit around waiting for me to cook!! He is helpful with anything physical but is useless at cooking so will just eat crisps and chocolate if I’m not about! I couldn’t wake up in the mornings and was even a few minutes late for work on a couple of occasions.
On Friday, I had to stay up after finishing work as the plumber was coming round to fit a new shower so we had an earlier tea and I went to bed at 6pm with the beginnings of a headache. I woke at 9am Saturday morning with a thumping head and took a shower but ended up hot and dizzy so had to sit on the bathroom floor and drip dry to cool off. I did manage to put some washing on but ended up back in bed within a couple of hours as I kept going dizzy every time I stood up.
I’m off work today as I still have a headache and am still weak. The hot, dizzy feeling persisted all yesterday and all I did was sleep. I’m still in bed now, using my laptop, as I can only manage to nip to the loo and that is a struggle.
I don’t know if this is a migraine because I allowed myself to get overtired, a virus or the MS. Whichever it is, I’m stuck in bed until I can start eating again and build up some strength.
Sorry for the moan, I can’t find much to smile about today as I’m feeling so pants. Why, oh why, do I always allow myself to do too much and make myself poorly?!
