Ugh, the last two days have been rough. It doesn’t help that it’s 90 degrees outside here and I think that’s a lot of it, but I’ve been feeling completely drained–like I want to go crawl into bed and get out in a week.
Last night I got halfway to the gym to swim and turned around in the middle of the road. Normally when I feel that way, I’d end up drinking a whole bottle of wine to “relax”, feeling worse the next day, and then taking an afternoon or morning off work to catch up on sleep. Rinse, repeat. Maybe I should take that half-day off work to catch up on sleep anyways!
Well, I didn’t have the wine but I pulled out every trick I could find–NA beer, special fizzy drink, watermelon as a treat, a cold shower (90 degrees! In MAY). I survived, and slept ok last night. Was still worn out this morning but at least I don’t have a hangover today too!
Does the exhaustion go away eventually?!? I thought you were supposed to be LESS tired without alcohol.
Day 25 (I had to look. funny)
