Recovering from yesterday's fun day... which *was* lots of fun. We had lunch and went to see the new x-files film and really enjoyed it, despite the bad reviews in the newspaper.
I'm getting worried about my brain. Something's been wrong with it for months now - I've been struggling to think and communicate, have trouble reading and writing, and can't even use my imagination the way I used to. I thought I was getting better because I can read light fiction now (I was on children's books last month) but I realised yesterday that I am still in a pretty bad way. I couldn't follow the conversation, couldn't remember things, couldn't express myself clearly. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, have they found a strategy to fix it? I used to study by correspondence, but it's all too hard to comprehend right now. My gp reckons the fogginess is because I'm depressed, but I'm *not* depressed - I don't think miserable thoughts all the time, and I don't wake up early in the morning. My specialist thinks the fogginess might be caused by medication... Either way, I'm scared I'll never regain my cognitive function if I don't do something to fix it soon.
Anyway, here are today's pacts:
* basic chores - make bed (done), tidy, do dishes (done)
* clean kitchen (almost done)
* do church at home, because I didn't make it there this morning (again)
* do some things to use my brain - write a few emails, read... ???
* phone someone
* spend some time outside in the sun
* maybe make the muffins I've been talking about all week, maybe invite someone to share them... or maybe not...
Hum de hum...
Jo, I'm so glad about Samantha! What a relief, and what good news.
