Wow, it's the first day I've felt normal in SO long! I have energy and can think. It's the first day in longer than I can remember that I actually really, really wished I was employed and had things to do that required me to think and contribute. Usually I'm too exhausted, regardless of my seemingly endless sleep, to even consider working but today was that mental kick that reminded me of the real life I used to have. I just started on a new antidepressent after I was spending literally 15 hours sleeping a day. I've had enough depression episodes in my life to know what I was dealing with beyond whatever antiimmune disease I'm fighting. I take a ton of Cymbalta so I kind of tried to limit the extra antidepressent but in this case, it was time for an intervention. Looks promising!
If there's anyone who reads this and has ideas on how to contribute to society on a semi-regular basis, I'm all ears. But in the meantime, hurray, it's a good day and we all know what a blessing that is!
