Just bitching and moaning and whining

So so nauseated again tonight. Just terrible. Could it be related to how much I'm doing? I've been trying to get more exercise lately -- walking places instead of taking the bus, as I'd been doing for weeks -- and Sunday I did a lot, but that's days and days ago.

Monday I didn't do much, resting after my busy Sunday,

Tuesday I walked to and from CWC (about 3 miles round-trip), was social and did art for nearly 3 hours at CWC, and walked to and from the optometrist (which isn't even a mile round-trip).

Today I walked to and from therapy (about 2 miles round-trip), had a not-particularly-difficult therapy session, and did 3 loads of laundry. Otherwise, I just laid around feeling tired and nauseated, reading Sherlock/John fica I already know well, and watching crappy tv shows about murderers. It doesn't seem like I'm doing too much, but I don't know why else the nausea would be so much worse this week.

Maybe I should take the bus sometimes … it's just so frustrating to be getting no exercise & feel so dependent on something I can't control. Plus, thanks to the Seroquel, I'm hungry almost constantly, so I'm eating what seems like a lot, then sitting on my butt.

Tonight, for the last 2 hours or so, I've been really hungry and nauseated at the same time. I can't explain how that works, but it's unpleasant.

In an effort to sort of get my head on straight and feel less negative, I got a Thich Nhat Hanh audiobook from the library, and I've been trying to listen to it, but I just can't concentrate on it, even though TNH's writing style is very simple and straightforward. I find myself just drifting off and then tuning back in to realize I have no idea how much I've missed. So I turned on music, instead. At least that didn't frustrate me and make me feel even worse.

Also, when typing journal entries, I've been making tons and tons of typos. I go back and fix most of them, but sometimes I just give up and move on.

Both my body and my brain hate me. I'm trying not to return the sentiment.

  • Water heater

    Our water heater has died, leaving us with no hot water this morning. The old one (and it is old, more than 12 years at least) needs to be torn out…

  • Resting Up

    My stomach has been doing okay since last Tuesday, but walking to CWC on Friday totally wiped me out, so apparently I'm still tiring easily, still…

  • Wonderful day with the hubby

    Had a tremendous day today, helped by the fact that I've been tremendously hypomanic. (I'm seeing my psychiatrist tomorrow, so we'll talk about this…
