Catch Up

In addition to the many things in my life that are being neglected, this blog is one of them.  Between the dog and her physical therapy, massage, and chiropractor and my light therapy visits and long work hours, I barely have time to fit in the necessities...you know things like eating, sleeping, laundry.

I'm running on fumes lately and so, so tired.  Not just mentally exhausted, but physically tired.  I have caught myself dozing off at work, dozing on the couch as I eat my dinner, dozing off at the wheel.  It's becoming a major issue and I just can't find enough hours in the day to catch up on the many, many hours of sleep that I need.  It also doesn't help that most of the medications I am currently on cause drowsiness.  Add that to an already fatigued body and it's a means for disaster.

Now take the above and add in the busy, hectic holiday season that is approaching and it's enough to bring tears to my eyes.  I have our company Christmas party to plan, multiple holiday meals to attend (beginning with my first Thanksgiving celebration this weekend at the in-laws), Christmas shopping to get started.....and the list could go on and on.  I don't know how I'm going to physically still be standing by New Years.

Any suggestions on what I can do to get me through the next couple months?

FYI ~ I may sound like I'm complaining, but all it takes is one look at this face to know that all the craziness that we've endured the past 18 months with the surgeries, the specialists, the medications, the rehab....have all been worth it
