Adventures in my off-kilter schedule


nightmare-455776_1280Couldn’t sleep last night (no surprise after 16 fitful hours the night before). I fell asleep around 10am and slept until 7pm. I was miserable this morning, so trying to stay awake all day didn’t seem like a good idea.

A generous friend took me to the grocery store because I really needed it and trying to walk there tonight didn’t seem like a good idea. I missed another church activity tonight, but that’s life. There will be more. I’ve been invited to something tomorrow night and I’m determined to go.

This will pass somehow. I’m sure my anxiety is just keeping me from being able to flip my days and nights back. It would help if I wasn’t alternating a normal eight hour sleep and a fitful 16 hr. sleep. We’ll see how things go.


About pickleclub1971

I'm a single mom of 2: a Southern CA native, who transplanted to Utah 4 years ago. I have one 18 year old who is off to the Ivy League, and one 14 year old who is in high school. I served an LDS Mission to Southern France and I’ve also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Idaho, Northern Arizona, and New Hampshire. I love 80’s music, classical music, choral music, playing the piano, singing, speaking what French I still remember, and talking about history and music with whomever will listen. I love that my kids are better at math than I was at their age. (But they still get frequent historical references from me…anyone familiar with Ducky from NCIS? He’s that kind of medical examiner, I’m that kind of mom.) My kids also think I know all the lyrics to all the songs from the 80’s, mainly because I’m good at making them up and faking it when I don’t know. Sometimes they catch me. I’m currently disabled with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I want to get better (of course) and be an advocate for trauma survivors and others with mental illnesses. I like people in general. I suffer from the delusion that I can make everyone my friend, but of course that isn’t possible: but I still believe that the world can be a better place.
