Yes, I'm in one of those "bad"/flare-y times of my wonderful adventures in CFS-land. Honestly, it's more of the "so amped but exhausted" things, like my body is going too fast but can't slow down. I also am really getting sensory overload in a big way, with all the 100% new stuff in my life with our recent move. This week, hubby is away on business, and I really am wigging. I almost forgot to pick my daughter up from school today, and driving there, I had another episode of all my senses just being magnified...it was all "too much". I've had this so often that I can manage it and know it will pass if I just force myself to not freak about it, but it still is not much fun. I know I have good reason to be so overwhelmed, but I also don't exactly have a ton I can do about it. I can't run to our old house, much as I want to see some familiar territory. I'm trying hard to get into a routine, although that is easier said than done with the business trip and even my 4 y.o. daughter's school holidays recently (Valentine's, President's Day, etc.). She's adapting, too, and showing periodic signs of overload herself, poor thing. At least she is sleeping better at night, now that she is no longer napping at school (she was forced to at her prev. preschool). But I'm not, even with snoring hubby gone for 5 days. Any ideas? Thanks. C.
