Out of the fog

I think my brain fog is slowly clearing up. It’s been, what? Three or four weeks since I’ve been completely lucid. I don’t know if it’s the same for the other migraine sufferers, but fatigue hounds me before, during, and after an attack. I didn’t feel the actual pain of the headache—at least I don’t remember, maybe the drugs I’ve been taking made sure of that—but I still haven’t found an escape from fatigue.

I feel worn out. It’s been difficult to do simple things. Coffee has not helped—not that it has helped me in the past. I just want everything to come into focus so I can be me again and just BE!

I’ve been taking it easy the past month. I feel guilty for not working as hard as I usually do, but I know that I need to do this, be good to myself… This too shall pass. I’ve skipped blogging for a long time (it was too much effort to think much less write!) and even stopped journaling for a day or two. Like I said, I feel guilty, but what could I do? I felt tired every morning after sleeping for 8 hours!

I’ve been going to an acupuncturist for the past three weeks. I think it’s making things worse by cleaning out my system and balancing my Qi, but I need this in the long run. My body is probably just purging the toxins; I should be okay soon. They’ve given me some herbs to help boost my energy and it seems to help, but I’m not out of the woods yet. I can still hear my bed calling out to me as I write this. Patience is key. I will be out of this fog soon.

10 days

I’ve already filled 17 (maybe 18 by the end of the day) pages of my new journal in 10 days. So proud of myself for sticking to my promise to draw and/or write everyday. Yay me! 🙂 It really does help clear the cobwebs in my head. 🙂

Throwback Thursday: drawing from 1993 or 1994

This is a drawing that I made in pencil two decades ago. I joined an art workshop one summer… Funny, now I’m the one conducting art classes! Wow, that’s a real “Throwback Thursday” for me! 🙂

Doodles

Tsk, tsk, tsk. This little art tutor was caught doodling while teaching! ;o) It’s okay, though, because our topic was sketching and my students enjoyed seeing how my doodles evolved. Yeah, yeah. ;o)
