Last night was one of those awful nights that make the next morning and day feel like you're swimming in pudding - messy and you never get anywhere.
After work yesterday I ran some errands. Unfortunately, it took much longer than I expected, so I didn't get home until 7:30. I hadn't eaten in several hours, which is too long for me. So I'm trying to do what I need to do, eat a snack, dinner, and dessert before going to bed, all while I was already exhausted. I laid down on the couch to watch the news and dozed off. I had set my alarm so I was going to get up and shower and go to bed. But I was so tired, I turned off the alarm (several times) and just fell asleep. I woke up at 4:45 am (have to be up for work at 6) and jumped up. I got in the shower, put on my work clothes, and laid back on the couch to attempt a quick nap before finishing getting ready for work. Couldn't fall back asleep. So I have been absolutely dragging all day. I really hate feeling like I'm dragging my brain along, never being able to get a real hold on it. I probably should've called in and went back to bed for 2 hours, but since I already couldn't fall asleep, I figured it wasn't work it considering how much I need to get done at work.
This is just a huge reminder to me that I need to eat SOMETHING every 2-3 hours. With my gastroparesis and reactive hypoglycemia, going longer without eating (besides sleeping) really messes up my day, my body, my brain, and the next day (or more). ugh
Early to bed tonight!
