I was so tired this morning, I was not about to risk falling asleep at the wheel again and running off the road again. Don't worry, the Lord had me and I went off the road on the ONE spot that had a grass shoulder. I don't want to ever do that again, though. So I had DH take the kids to school and I went back to bed for an hour before I had to go to my consult appt. Grabbed a starbucks on the way. Now I'm tired and jittery, lol. I'm quitting coffee shops though. I grabbed some hazelnut creamer and will make my coffee at home from now on.
Someone left out our older dog and he pooped everywhere. I'm hoping we potty train my dog soon so that he will stop. If she goes in the house he feels like he has to as well. Sigh. But she is doing better, so hopefully he will too.
I got my essential oil diffuser necklaces! I love it! I was able to take a nap yesterday wearing lavender oil. Today to help me stay awake I wore peppermint. My daughter finds citrus soothing so she wore lemongrass to school today.
I have a delima. I want to work out, I seriously do, but I'm so exhausted I feel like if I work out I'll use up what little energy the coffee gave me. I don't know what is sapping me of energy. I am having PTSD nightmares and waking up in panic attacks, but that is nothing new. I didn't make my new med change till this week and the lethargy started last week. I was tired before then, but that was the puppy keeping me up, she is doing much better and sleeps through most of the night. She got me up at 4 AM this morning, and I usually get up at 0445, so no big deal till I got up and started trying to do things, then I started falling asleep while doing so. I knew something was up when I curled up on the couch and my pup curled up on top of my side and would not let me get up. So thankful DH could take them to school. So thankful for my pup.
Changing appt's up. Ones that have copays have to be scheduled for my next paycheck. But I have to get in to see my psych-doc asap in case the changes in meds from before have anything to do with this. Also might go see my family practice doc (I've met my deductible) and see what she can come up with if the p-doc doesn't have anything. I'm so tired. but it is too close to time to go pick up the kids, I would not be able to fall asleep, my anxiety would keep me up.
I have so much to do, and I'm so exhausted. I'll get the kids to help when they come home, after homework.
Had labs done to see about my vitamins and such, plus my annual labs, so we will see soon if any of that is causing this.
I feel like I'm running on fumes! I'm going to go to bed early tonight and see if that helps. Hopefully my pup will be sleepy and go to bed with me, I sleep better with her curled up next to me.
Hope you have a fun energetic day!
