Today is November 8 my last post was on November 6. I have already failed NaBloPoMo, but really I’m okay with that.
Because even though I only made it a week that week was enough to remind me why I love blogging. So while it wont be a daily thing it will definately be something I make time for.
Not an excuse, but part of the reason I wasn’t able to maintain the daily posting schedule is I’ve been migrainy for the last week. The last week also happens to be a time that I’ve had a higher than normal load at school so I’ve been in pain, queasy, and working my ass off.
A lot of healthy people underestimate how exhausting it is to have a chronic illness, but it always surprises me that after 24 years of migraines I often underestimate it. I’ve trained myself to work through the pain when I’d rather be curled up in a ball in a dark corner. But while I can work through it that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take an additional toll. Sure the migraine only lasted six days, but here I am two days post migraine still in the hangover phase.
Some people use the spoon theory, but i feel like i’ve been pushing myself so hard this week i’m borrowing spoons from days I may never get to see. I’m exhausted and just the thought of going to the laundry room to get the clothes out of the drier has me nearly in tears. I also need to go to the post office and get to class. I’m missing this class next week because of a conference so I dont think I can skip today, but i’m also not sure i can stay awake the whole time.
