Last week when I worked, I did fairly well the next day - a little more tired than normal but was able to function quite well. Yesterday I worked again (another 12 hour shift in the ER) and today I can barely move - it is as if my muscles were pure jello. Moving is difficult and trying to think is near impossible. Writing this is hard. I am forcing myself to think because I need to figure this out. The last time I felt this way was the first few months of TSW. I gained significant energy when I started taking vitamins and supplements. When I stopped them one time the fatigue came roaring back. Well I stopped them only a few days ago when I started juicing. I figured the vitamins in the veggies I was drinking would make up for the supplements. I think I am wrong. I think my body needs the extra vitamins. Especially my adrenal glands - in order to heal and work properly again, the adrenal glands need extra vitamin B's and C. When I was taking the vitamins, my urine would be bright yellow from the excess B's my body didn't utilize. Well, my urine hasn't turned bright yellow with the juicing. So today I am going back to the supplements AND the juicing - hopefully the vitamins give me enough energy later today to juice. I am so fatigued I only made a few goals for today - change my sheets, juice, and get 5 more cases done (for my at home job). Typically I do 10-15 cases per day but today I am aiming low do to how I feel.
Surprising my skin is not so bad - getting my monthly will cause it to be in a major flare, and it was, but today my neck is nearly clear and my arms are not as red and itchy. Maybe another 4-5 day break approaching? I would get a 4-5 day break from the major flare a few days after my monthly started. This is only day 2, so maybe I am going back to my previous pattern. That would be nice! :)
Well that is all for now. Too tired to go on. Hope everyone else is having a good skin day!!
