I am so tired I want to die. Melodramatic, yes. Innacurate, no.
What is ironic about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (which as you can guess, relates to constant fatigue) is that it actually stops sufferors from sleeping. So you’re stuck in the middle, so bone-tired that you can’t function but still unable to sleep. Too tired to do anything, but too awake to be asleep.
Last night I slept for an hour before getting up at 7:15am to go work at Court. I had a good day, all told – a colleague that left a few months ago dropped in for a visit (bringing baked goods, no less!) and a client I’d been dreading turned out to actually be kind of reasonable. I managed to keep busy with projects inbetween seeing litigants so I barely noticed how tired I was.
Then, the second I walked through the door, the pain hit. Not so great, but at least it waited until I got home!
Anyway, the result is that I haven’t done any of the actual Stuff I wanted to do, but I have read more of N0S4R2 which I still love more than anything. It’s quirky but creepy, in a really great way!
Anyway, I’ll be back tomorrow when I’ll be hopefully less whiny!
LATER: Scrap that. I couldn’t sleep so I finished N0S4R2 instead. It’s amazing and the ending has pretty much blown me away. So now I’m going to go try and sleep. Night all!
