Right now my life sucks. I’ve been on the verge of getting sick for weeks and now I finally have. Of course right in the weeks where I would be busiest all of January.
To top it all off, I’m also battling a bad case of insomnia (I am writing this at 4.30 AM – go figure). For some reason I can’t sleep. I sleep an hour tops and that’s it. And I have no real clue why. I used to be a very sound sleeper. It would take me a while to get to sleep but once I did you could blare your music right next to my head and I wouldn’t wake up. These past couple of weeks have been agony. For nights on end I sleep but not as deep or sound as I would like or should to be able to function to my full ability and then there is the odd night or two where I simply don’t sleep at all.
So add a throat infection, slowly stir in some insomnia and you have: Maaike who is rendered completely useless and if it’s something I dislike it’s being or feeling useless.
Oh well, I’m sure it will pass. I saw my doctor yesterday and he told me to just wait out my throat infection (oh joy, if there is something I’m not good at…) and he gave me something to help me sleep. Nothing too major though, but so far it doesn’t really seem to be working. It tends to do that for some people. But I’ve decided to give it a shot for about a week and then just go back to see my doctor and get things sorted out.
For now, I’ll just try to catch some sleep and hopefully I will feel better soon and I sincerely hope that all of you are doing a whole lot better than me.
