As it turns out, I was right to be nervous about last week. Because it was CRAZY, both at work and at home.
I am paying for it now.
The thing with adrenal fatigue is that I just don’t have energy reserves that normally would kick in in periods of stress, lack of sleep, whatever. It’s a strange feeling, not being able to just push through. It takes a longer time for me to recover than I would like. I wish I could rewind the last 13 months and make this whole thing not have happened. While I know it’s not, it feels irreversible.
One of the biggest things I’m struggling with right now is exercise. I have no motivation and energy for much planned physical activity, and I frankly I’m scared to do too much because I don’t want to put too much stress on my body. But for the first time in, I don’t know, ever, I don’t feel strong, and that’s not a feeling I enjoy.
I want to do yoga. I need to do yoga. Yoga is magical. It’s amazing how much better my mind and body feel after a class or even a video. I don’t know where to find the time, but I’ve got to make it a priority.
