Yes, I have been diagnosed with exhaustion. Seriously. My blood pressure is up. I am not sleeping well. My nutrition is poor, but not because of my eating - my body is literally exhausted.
-D was getting worried about me being so tired, so I went in and yep, an official diagnosis. I have to rest, eat well, take vitamins, exercise (but not to the point of exhaustion) and get the stress down in my life.
So, I think for the rest of the year, we are not going to allow visitors.
I am going to chill out. Just spend as much time at home as possible, not booking early appointments if we HAVE to book them at all. I am not going to take in any more work and Christmas is going to be low key.
I have to track my water intake and keep a food journal, but that should not be too hard.
I was told to get a massage. I am allowed to forgo blood pressure meds right now. There was an unusually high reading for me, but it could be dehydration and the fact I am on decongestants. So, we are waiting a couple of weeks and trying again.
Is anyone really surprised though? I am not. I know I have been running thin. We need to have a family meeting though and really discuss expectations. -D is going to freak, but we will get through this.
Let me tell you folks. Clinical exhaustion is awful. It is beyond tired. I am ready to be myself again.
