Every day, lately, has felt like “hump” day. Every day I start with my usual tasks and by about 9:30 am usually exhausted and ready for the end of the day. Today, at Texas’ version of the DMV, I was waiting at the window not a particularly long time and just felt my overwhelming exhaustion. I felt like placing my head on the ledge and closing my eyes. Multiple times, lately, I have had to put my head down on my desk for a few minutes to make it through each work day. I am even putting my head down on the kitchen table, sometimes the kitchen counter, sometimes on the crossed arms on my lap.
Besides the exhaustion, I have been much more aware of my arm and leg pain. It’s become a nuisance. It’s not interfering much with my daily routine, but just a reminder. I told Rob that over the next ten weeks I was going to cut back on chores/tasks that seem to increase pain. I want to be well enough for vacation and to enjoy my pre-op summer time with Rob and Roger.
