In Blackest Night – Another Bad Day
I’ve been feeling a bit better lately–stocked up on my meds and haven’t missed a dose and I attended an assessment with MIND on Tuesday. I ordered some stuff from The Works for the kids’ creative box and ‘treated’ myself to a mindfulness colouring book. My energy levels are still fairly low but more noticeable at night when I’d normally stay up and play the PS4.
Today, however took a different turn. Perhaps it was too much sun yesterday or, most likely, the ever-increasing pain in my stomach. It’s been six days so far where I have had really bad pains in my stomach and each day brings additional pain and discomfort.
I wouldn’t say I was bouncing off the walls yesterday but I was pretty productive–I did some cleaning, tidied the garden a bit and spent time out in the sun while the kids were on the trampoline, swings and seesaw. The pain had been pretty bad but I managed to work through it and it only really became a larger impact in the night when I was in bed. I awoke three times due to the pain and it took lengthy periods of time to get back to sleep.
Today hasn’t been my worst day but it may be a sign of things to come.
