Holiday Dread

All EDSers that are at least mildly dreading the upcoming holidays please raise your hands. Is your hand raised? Mine is.

I enjoy visiting with family and friends…when I’m feeling up to it. Lately — if you’ve been following my blog you already know this — I haven’t felt up to it very often.   For the past few months, about the only thing I’ve felt like doing is sleep. When I’m not sleeping, I spend the bulk of my time fighting sleep or trying to keep my mind off of sleep.

I am exhausted. I am dizzy. I am in pain. All of these things indicate that it isn’t in my best interest to ride 2.5 hours one way to visit as many people as we can in 24 hours just because it’s a holiday.

Ideally,  folks would come up here once in awhile — maybe not on an actual holiday, but sometime near a  holiday. Unfortunately, it’s hard enough to get some folks up here yearly, let alone twice in one year. Maybe someday…I can always hope…

    I’m sorry you are feeling awful. You have my empathy. At least now I don’t feel so guilty about getting my own way about staying in on New Year’s Eve. EDSer’s unite I say in their pj’s, on the sofa, relaxing.
