Hello everyone, and it’s good to see you! I've been gone for a while cuz well, life is like that sometimes! I had lots and lots of company over the holidays, have a new part time job at a museum [that I don't like, what was I thinking!?!], building my business, and volunteering lots. I have a question and please forgive me if it’s dense- I have had a rough week and for some reason I am not able to communicate well.
Here goes- last Monday [3/8] I woke up completely fried. I got up late and was a tad nervous about not being on time, but I got there ok. I noticed while I was driving to work that my attention was a bit strange. From the beginning of my shift I was out of control. I am a southern girl and very friendly but that day I blabbered, blundered, was too loud- I knew something was wrong with me, that I was behaving oddly but could not reach inside myself to sort it out and come up with solutions. I was scaring myself. My supervisors and co-workers looked at me as if I had grown a new head with horns attached. They even sent someone to my gallery to “chat” and remind me ever so nicely that the cameras were watching. When it came time for break, I didn’t know where to go. I went upstairs, then downstairs, finally got a sandwich and couldn’t bite into it, or chew it well, or swallow easily. Then I was late to my gallery- I couldn’t get inside because the theatre was in progress- but it never occurred to me to radio my supervisor and explain. This kind of thing went on all day. I was given a short break and I had to ask the quickest way to the water fountain. But I know the quickest way! Later that day I didn’t know what I was in the grocery store for. The week went on this way, on Thursday I was oblivious in my car, someone ran into me but normally I would have seen it coming and been able to react. I became a bit more settled by Friday, but even today I am still anxious, confused, unable to focus. Playing games on the computer is a weird fest, I'm not sure what the objective is. All week I have been unfamiliar to myself. I am not on a new medicine, I am not a coffee freak on a caffeine withdrawal. I am not sleep deprived. I am not emotionally wasted. I just don’t understand. I made a note of this on my calendar, if it happens again I may be able to see a pattern. Your thoughts will be helpful. Thank you!
