What I did today: I took it easy today. Did my writing, but also relaxed with a couple of movies. I’ve done a bit of reading today too. A late afternoon nap was probably not my best idea, but my blood sugar was high and so I took some insulin and went to sleep. Feeling a bit better now. I just need to remember to eat because when I don’t, my bs rises on me for some odd reason. Most people have a drop in bs when they don’t eat, mine just climbs. Then I get sleeping and irritable. I also avoided phone calls today. Two of them. From good friends. Not my proudest moment, but I was in the middle of downtime watching movies and didn’t feel like talking on the phone. I get that way sometimes. I just really hate talking on the phone and one of these friends could talk for hours.. every day.. I just don’t have that much to say every day.
What I learned today: I need to stop stressing out over things. I worry and get all anxious over not reading enough emails and posts each day. I am not avoiding it so I don’t know why I am so stressed. I do what I can when I can. But the stress is causing my body to ache and I think the insomnia too. My brother keeps saying to me, “does this blogging thing give you a paycheck, no.. then stop stressing.” He is right of course.
What I am most proud of today: I took time for me today. Movies and sleep. I do feel more relaxed. And I am proud of myself for realizing that I did indeed need that downtime.
