I have been feeling horrible lately - lots of pain, terrible fatigue, brain fog - but finally mustered enough motivation late this afternoon to shower and get started on housework.
No sooner had I started than there was a bang at the door and there was a foreign man with a heavy accent spruiking new power services. I don't know what the situation is where you live, but here we have a choice of companies and representatives are always coming to our door posing as government officials, trying to convince us to change companies.
So, he came and started babbling and waffling and quoting all sorts of meaningless numbers, and I could feel my poor brain going into meltdown. I politely told him that I wasn't well and to please not tell lies or a long convoluted story about
what he wanted, and to please either come straight to the point or leave and write to me instead because I wasn't able to cope with long conversations.
He wouldn't listen. He just went on and on and on and on and on, not understanding why I didn't understand, to the point that I was swaying on my feet and just about
in tears of frustration.
Anyway, now my mental energy is zapped... and on something that was completely pointless... and now I have to do the housework on even less energy than I had before.
I'm not really sure what the point of this post is, except maybe to vent about
how callous and unsympathetic people can be. I don't think they realise just how little it takes to rob us of all our energy and destroy our day.
Seriously, how hard would it have been to send me a letter instead, especially as I asked for one?
