no_energyThe day started off really slow.  I got the kids off to school, did some shopping and then I literally hit the wall.  I am as flat as a flat thing.  I am craving sugar, I feel sick, I’m so hot and bothered.  To top it off, the pain in my joints is unbelievable.

I wanted to go for a walk, I know it’s good for me, but I just couldn’t do it.  It’s a miracle though, I managed to cook dinner and we have Connect Group at our home tonight.  I really don’t feel like I have the energy to see anyone, but I know it will be worth it.

I’ve never felt so empty, so drained, so emotionally numb.  It sounds horrible but I almost wish my body was numb.  It’s such a weird situation when your emotions are not there, you’re so tired you can’t feel anything but there’s so much pain and discomfort in your body.

I pray for anyone who goes through this treatment or any other type of illness where you are in such pain on a long-term basis.  I really don’t know how you do it and you are my hero.
