This is a bad episode, but remarkably impersonal.  What I’m experiencing most are the physical symptoms—body aches and pain, exhaustion, moving in slow-motion.  My mind is sticky and murky—hard to bring a thought to the front and clean it up enough to make sense.  This morning after being at the Y, I went to Aldi (the cheap grocery store), but it was a half hour before opening.  I sat in my truck a full 10 minutes trying to figure out if I should stay or go to the Hy-Vee (bigger, more expensive store).  I just couldn’t figure it out.  Finally, I went to Hy-Vee, just because I felt like I had to so something.  Once I got the few groceries I needed, I went home, put my nightie back on, and watched TV until I fell asleep.

I know my brain is not working right.  Neither is my body.  It’s okay, though.  It will pass.  I can shuffle from room to room for awhile.  And when my thoughts start on that dark, twisty roller coaster ride, I can just close my eyes and feel the wind in my hair.

    My brain too is not working right. Today I was to have a fasting blood test before going to work but I ate breakfast and drank coffee before it registered that I wasn’t supposed to do that. I also never put it together that my Dr. appointment was at the same time as I was supposed to show up at the office. Dallas says I have just been trying to process too much these past few days and need time for things to slow down. Good advice I’m thinkin’.

    and yet inspite of the ugh and the pot of human lard, you end on a very upbeat note.

    Are you still creating ST adventures?

    Can you when things are such as they are?

    Your weird panoply is an engaging collage. Hope you get through this smoothly.
