No Visibility….

After last night’s meltdown, I hoped a good night’s sleep would make me feel better. Not so, unfortunately.

I cancelled my volunteering shift and have not moved from bed, apart to make breakfast. My head is pounding. The brain has ground to a halt. I woke up with a fog swirling around my head. It took some time before it cleared. The headache is still there though. I may well go back to sleep in a while.

Adjectives that apply? Confused, dazed, disorientated, numb. No visibility through the fog today. I’ve been getting some supportive messages, which is good. I have to listen to my body and rest. Maybe I’ve been taking on too much recently surrounding mental health and trying to be a people pleaser. My own mental health needs looking after. And that’s what I’ll do, if it means staying in bed and out of everybody’s way.

Unpleasant feeling this. But it will pass soon.
