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

    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.
Spark On! We Got This! emoticon

  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.
