Drained of all energy

16 May

Got home tonight and the thought of making something to eat was just too much, so I decided to just drink something. And by something I mean a non-alcoholic beverage.

I was going to grab a coke zero, but then thought “Nah, I’m gonna drink a tea. It’s too late for coke.”

Really? Really Carol? Too late for coke?? How old are you? When did you get to the point that 9pm became too late for caffeine? You, who are so used to drinking coffee til you’re too tired that you fall asleep. You, who can drink coke all day and not postpone going to bed because of it. You, who cannot spend not even a few days without caffeine that you go crazy. Where did the time go, because apparently I missed that memo.

The thing is that I’ve being digging through my body to find what little energy I have to deal with all I have to deal. I don’t go to bed before midnight and wake up around 3 or 4 in the morning to be able to handle all the assignments from my college classes. Then I go to work and have to find patience to deal with children all day long. Then I have classes. And all this finding-energy-where-there’s-no-more is getting to me. And I finally have no more energy left.

I’m tired. No, not just tired. I’m exhausted. Yes, that’s exactly how I feel right now; exhausted. Like all energy was drained out of my body and there’s finally nothing else left. I’m depleted of all my resources or reserves. I’m done.

    Hang in there. You are not alone in having to find energy from somewhere to cope with all the demands on you. I have no answers to any of this other than trying to take a break and work out what needs to be done and what would be nice to do and then seeing what you can focus down on. I know it’s never easy.

      Thank you. I sure needed a break. Like you said, it’s never easy. I just wasn’t finding time and when I finally did, I felt like I was falling apart. I feel better now.

    Sounds as though you’re due for a reboot and recharge. If only we treated ourselves as good as our gadgets.

      Exactly, if only we were as good to our bodies as we are to our gadgets.
