Fun? Huh? What's that? Refining the WUB

Sunday, July 29, 2012

I have had so low energy that I have not been able to do any fun things . This has gone on for a long time. If I have any energy, I am working on business stuff or trying to clean up or out at water aerobics. Or I could be doing stuff on sparkpeople. Water aerobics and SP are both fun, I admit. But SP is sitting at the computer maybe 3 hours a day. Since retiring last November I have mostly been recuperating. That was working--till this thyroid problem hit. It is time that I get a bit more fun into my life. i am way overdue!

I am missing something. I rarely see friends or family, not even phoning them. My sister used to phone me, but I have not been at all good about phoning her. I actually think she is depressed. And I miss the chats we used to have. This fits hand in hand with me feeling lonely lately. I have been dwelling on me and hubby getting older and what would I do if one of us got really sick. He is already disabled. If I need hospitalization there is no one to care for him. This has been worrying me. more lately.

So, phoning my sister should be one of the "fun" things I do weekly. emoticon


I was reading a lot. But lately my energy has been so low that I have stopped reading books. That is a very bad sign! Let's hope the thyroid meds build up so this rectifies itself! I ALWAYS had one or two books going! Right now--none.

Friday I am taking DH to Cape Cod. I do not want to be a slug there. Yes, it is a vacation, but sleeping the day away, like I have been, is not my usual way to have a vacation. I do like to get up and out and find somewhere nice to walk and take in nature, especially on Cape Cod.

So , I need to plan some fun for next week. emoticonThat will be my next blog I think.

    I think getting more fun in your life is a GREAT idea! I just had a visit from my sister (who lives far away) and I really enjoyed being like kids again. Social outreach is pretty important and helps us get a break from stress emoticon

    I HAVE SEEN THE TERM "WUB" A LOT ON BLOGS LATELY BUT HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT MEANS. CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT IT STANDS FOR?

    My Weekly goals include me time of at least 30 minutes per day doing something that I enjoy. It is getting easier and I find that the fun and joy helps to energize me.

    Chris, that's the way I often feel and didn't know why. I, too, have a thyroid problem, although mine's supposed to be "stablized." I will feel good, and then with no warning, I can barely cope. I'm exhausted, can't or don't want to do anything even my favourite activities. I was beginning to think I was going crazy. I am sorry to hear you that you feel this way, but may be I was right all along and my thyroid is still causing problems. Hang in there we will win in the end.
