I'm Still Here

I realize that I haven't posted in over a week and I feel badly about it but not badly enough that I'm going to write a huge post right now.

I'm always exhausted. I've been fighting something that never quite wins and makes me out and out sick but never goes away either. My voice comes and goes and makes me sound sicker than I am on the phone but I realize I've been pushing my luck and burning the candle at both ends and in the middle for quite a while.

There have been a couple of days when I didn't even read blogs, let alone comment. I went to sleep around dinnertime at least 2 or 3 times and I spent most of last Shabbos in bed. I feel the need right now to take as much time to rest as possible because the rest of my life is as crazy and busy as ever.

I spend a ton of time in the car, driving. And I've continued putting in longer than usual hours at work. Year end is a busy time for non-profits. I have a ton of work to do and it needs to be done now.

So I'll try to blog a little more often but, for the short term, I'm going to put a couple of other things first.

Shevy, know the feeling!! Have you looked in adrenal fatigue? I am hoping to make 2009 the year I finally figure if this is an issue for me or not. And I already know my thyroid function is low. "Typical" tests come back normal, but my waking temperature is very low which signals low thyroid. Plus I have plenty of symptoms for both problems. Check a post I made some time back, it might be helpful: Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting about my being ill the other day, I really appreciate your advice, it was helpful. Thanks again.

I'm been feeling really tired this last few weeks since being sick. Today I just wanted to sleep!
