Should have written earlier before headache settled in. Was a good day today. The cliches of sleeping, taking meds on time, moderate exercise and less sugar seem to be playing out as expected.
I felt like my normal self today. Not super-energetic or anything, but with a distinct lack of fatigue.
I felt like I was shedding something I had been carrying with me for some time without even realizing it. A weight that wasn't just on my shoulders, but wrapped around my chest.
There's something also like the real me has always been in here and although I have put on a good show for the past few years, now I don't have to fake it. I actually am as functional as I seem to be.
having a job I love and a supervisor who values creativity, shoulder massages to banish tension headaches, green tea, corrective lenses for my very nearsighted son, free summer programs that take kids fishing and swimming and canoeing while I rock my daughter to sleep
took meds (150mg sertraline, 300mg buproption)
went for a walk (1.5 miles)
drank a bunch of water
