Yep. Two posts in one day. I was FEELING this earlier but decided not to attach it to the first post. In FACT, I got off the computer & got busy to keep myself from thinking too much. (Me thinking too much = scary ... VEEEEERY scary! LOL!) But, several hours later, I still want to know, so here I am again. Do any of you ever feel so deep-down tired you just want to hide from the world? Do you ever feel that everyone 'wants a piece of you' at exactly the time you don't have a thing to offer or the stamina to offer it? Does everything - even the tiniest thing - seem HARD some days? No - I'm not 'down' or depressed. In fact, I'm HAPPY! I'm just exhausted, & right now I think it will take a whole lifetime to find enough energy to feel like ME again. I'm guessing this is partially Lupus/fibro-related. But I don't know. I just know I'm bone-weary. I want my life back - the one where I could jump around and run and get out on my own without depending on anyone else to TAKE me anywhere. I want to DANCE when I feel like it; do aerobics again. Live on coffee & LAUGHTER. Even LAUGHING hurts today. And I am not looking for sympathy; just truly wondering if any of YOU ever feel this way? ....................... Okay. I'm finished with these silly blog posts for today. Honest!
