Isn't it amazing we take care of just about everything that comes along, but tend to leave ourselves for last? Lately I've been going crazy dealing with things at work, a dog that won't stay in his pen while we're at work, trying to get all the fall yard and garden chores taken care of while the weather is still nice, all while barely getting any sleep at night. Now I'm trying to deal with not being able to see. I have new contacts which have been adjusted so I have better distance vision. Now I can see great while driving or looking across the room. However, I can't see a darn thing close up. I bought a pair of reading glasses, but they are seldom handy when I need to read a price tag, food label, or just check the time on my watch. I know I'm sounding a bit whiney here, but it really is a pain in the you-know-what! I rescheduled my follow-up appointment for Monday instead of waiting another two weeks, because it is very difficult to function at work.
The problem is, I let all of this "noise" get in the way of taking care of myself. I'm not sleeping well, I run out of time in the mornings and haven't been eating a healthy breakfast, and I'm so exhausted at the end of the day I'm certainly not exercising like I need to. When did I start feeling so out of control? How do I get things back in order? A good night's sleep would be a great start. More exercises would surely help with this. I'm in the midst of a vicious cycle...a runaway circus wagon and I want to get off!
