I’m supposed to be asleep already. With my doctor appointment early tomorrow in downtown Houston, I tried going to bed early this evening. I was actually sleepy about 8:30.….but that time has passed, and I’m not sure why my brain is on. And I know I’ll have a hard time getting up in the morning! Why do our brains/bodies do this to us?
Today, I also was up fairly early (for summer 🙂) to take my mom to her doctor for a simple procedure. But the doctor only does this at the Pasadena office, which round trip is about 3 hours. Traffic wasn’t bad at all on the way there and just jammed up in a few places on the way back, so overall it was not too bad. Just long. And it turned out to be a pre-procedure needed for insurance. Hopefully, the real deal will get approved quickly, and my mom can get some relief from her serious back pain.
Once home about noon, I tried to get some things done around the house. I feel like I did a lot and yet not enough. I’ve had a few days this week in a row where I’ve been feeling better than I have in a long while, and I’m very thankful for this! However, it’s hard to pace myself after months of severe fatigue. I want to do all of the things!
Alright, I’m going to try to close my eyes. The appointment I have tomorrow with my CFS/Lyme specialist here in town is my regular 3 month visit. I don’t expect much to change at all, plus my out of town CFS/Lyme doctor just put me on a pretty entailed plan on Tuesday that I’d like to try to follow to see if I can make some much needed progress with the fatigue and cognitive issues I’ve been experiencing. Luckily, both of my doctors are cool with me seeing both of them and open to one another’s suggestions, etc., and they know each other professionally. I can only be grateful about the options I have where I know that others do not.
Have a good night, friends and take care! -b
