After a very long day yesterday, I have been tired all day, since this morning when I took my medicine at 8 am and went right back to sleep for 2 hours and a half. I was tired last night when I came home and I’ve been tired all day. Because of this I was only able to do two productive things today, set up an interview next week and cook. If I finish and post this, I can add writing this blog post and say did three things.
I still haven’t really figured out how much I can do before I get this tired. I know it’s a side effect from both of the epilepsy drugs I take, but I still don’t know how much I can do before this will hit me and I will be tired the next day. I don’t get this tired everyday and it’s not like I don’t do anything so then I get tired when I do something because I’m not used to it. I have very productive days when I’m fine. I think it’s just those days when I do things out of the ordinary and when I don’t get a break.
We all, epilepsy or not, just need to take a break sometimes to stop, have a drink of water, sit down or stand up (whichever is the opposite of what you were doing before), and just breathe. Also we all deserve a moment to just think about nothing or something stupid, hear a joke and laugh. I really believe that if we take EVERYTHING so seriously and don’t laugh at least once or twice a day, life is just exhausting, so don’t take everything so seriously and try to laugh a little.
I think maybe that’s another reason I’m so tired, everything was so serious yesterday, I didn’t have fun, laugh or get a break to just relax and breathe.
