Sometimes life throws us on a course that we aren't expecting but that we need.
For 2 weeks I was up early to take E to camp (read 7am) and then off to the gym to exercise. No time to nap though as she needed to be picked up at 12:30. I did have a couple of days where I did get a break but they were towards the beginning which really does nothing for me.
Last week E and I were in PA visiting my family. Again I was not getting much sleep with 3 kids who are early risers. I napped one day out of the 8 there. Plus we were in the sun most of the day or I was out partying it up (bridal shower and bachelorette party - pictures will be posted at some point). So I am totally and completely worn out.
Then there is today, followed by the rest of the week. Up at 6:30 to be in class by 8:30. Today we were in the classroom for 8 hours. The next 3 days we will be walking around archives in Boston and Salem. O.M.G. The walking is going to kill me. I digress though. By 2pm I was shivering and feeling completely achy. I could tell I had a fever. When I got home I took my temp....It is running between 99.3 and 100.1. Nothing horrible but ugh!!! One day. I lasted one day before I got "sick". I say "sick" because I know it is lack of sleep.
Besides completely running myself ragged the past 3 weeks I finally got my O2 study results back. Drum-roll please.....I need O2 with sleep, even when "healthy". And of course I haven't been wearing it so I keep forgetting to put it on when I go to bed. Tonight I won't. Tonight I plan on going to bed, oh, well, in about an hour and sleeping all night, with my O2.
What does this all mean? Well it means it is a good thing I did not interview and get a new job. I lasted 3 weeks on less sleep than usual. 3 weeks before I began running fevers. 3 weeks before I know I am too exhausted to do anything.
Thank you lungs for being shitty and making a wonderful few weeks so awful.
