Yesterday was an encore performance of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy Unplugged. No, I was not in a cozy little MTV studio, singing along as I played my acoustic guitar. (I was blessed with many talents, but music or voice talent are definitely not on that list!)
I’ve come to realize that about once a month (sometimes more, sometimes less) I have a day where I am completely unplugged – as in having absolutely no energy supply. It sometimes seems that I don’t even have enough energy to sleep. It sounds like an oxymoron, I know, but I have no doubt that those of us who live with chronic fatigue know this feeling all too well.
So from around 12 noon until 7 in the evening, with a few breaks here and there, I was out cold. Luckily my class yesterday was online, so my mega-nap didn’t interfere with any of my commitments.
The weather turned last night. It’s currently in the low 30′s, and a light drizzle has been falling for hours. Normally my living room would be flooded in sunlight at the moment, but with so many clouds in the sky everything has that “muted” feel.
In half an hour, I’m going into work. On top of my class, I have office hours in the morning. Here’s hoping that I won’t have another repeat performance of yesterday’s unplugged session. I think it’s time I start looking into winter batteries!
Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!
