I don’t know if I really am experiencing the side effects of reducing my medication, or whether I just think I am. Whether tired and fuzzy and making mistakes is just ‘me’ or whether my body is just going ‘argh’ whilst it adjusts the levels of whatever it is that need adjusting. The last few days I have been desperately tired but struggling to sleep and then when sleep does come, I dream. The dose of medication that I’ve been on tends to stop dreams and it seems that my head is making up for lost time. So as I wake, drenched in sweat I feel even more exhausted than I did before – it’s like trying to recharge your batteries when the charger isn’t plugged in to the wall.
I am going to get through this though and as we drove home last night the voice from the back of the car said “look at the moon mummy, it’s following us home”. I wasn’t really able to explain planetary movement to the children but we marvelled at it all the way back. So I grabbed my camera as we fell through the door (completely ignoring the children in the name of a photo – hmmm, not so proud of that one) and took these:
So a clear sky at night, generally brings a bright sunny morning. Knowing that these were sitting on my memory card I wanted something to contrast with them. I’m not entirely sure how I got the children to school this morning (although it was rather close to the Cheetah Keeper going in his pyjamas as he refused to get dressed) but I did, all children and medicine delivered to correct classrooms. I managed to do some work (only 2 mistakes and I spotted them) and took myself to the osteopath – although it was one of those journeys in the car that you do on auto-pilot and wonder how you got there.
So 45 minutes of treatment later, I drove home and was hungry. Hungry! I ate lunch because I wanted to, not because I thought I should. Then, having done some more work I took my camera out and went for a wander in search of something I had seen in bud a couple of weekends ago.
