Mental Illness and Invisible Illness Are Horrible Things

Yesterday was an off day for me. I’m not sure if it was the overall stress from everything lately, or if my meds are out of whack. All I know is yesterday my depression took the wheel.

I tried to fight it by keeping myself busy. I disinfected and polished both of our kitchen sinks, vacuumed the main floor, rearranged the front room after clearing out the Christmas tree mess, and did load upon load of dishes.

I didn’t let it get the best of me until the afternoon. My “Husband” said something and it just set me off. I didn’t get out of bed for a few hours after that.

When I finally did, my body told me I pushed myself too far. My fibro pain was from the tips of my fingers to the soles of my feet.

I’ve said it before, I am a sharer. I sometimes share too much. Regardless, it’s healthier to get it out than hold it in. Plus, I didn’t get any purging done yesterday. I feel like I owe you all an explanation for that.

Today my life is jammed to the rim. I left the house at 10am, I will be home for an hour soon (3pm), then I’m at work till 8pm. While my health is stable, I just don’t have time to purge today.
