Paper Paper Everywhere....
Tonight I HAVE to get the last of the Christmas wrapping finished. I am sick to death of wrapping and feel like I have turned into some sort of Gangsta Wrapper the amount I have wrapped. I mean why are children's things suck odd awkward shapes to wrap! My thought on this is that it's so you use more wrapping paper. It wouldn't be so bad if when it actually came out of the box it was that size but it's normally fully of stupid packaging and those tie things that take you forever to get off on Christmas morning!
Doing too much.
It's that time of year when as a parent you are pushed to breaking point going at 100mph trying to get everything ready in time. For a fibro sufferer this only means one thing... danger flare ahead!
I didn't get much sleep last night and haven't been sleeping well again as of late so I was awake from 12am.
The morning started well, I made a jelly with Evie my youngest got our baths and hair washed and we were all set to go. We got to town and went to the bookshop to collect a book that I had reserved, and the computer said I had already paid so who was I to argue and I walked out the book shop with my free book. So far so good.
Evie decided she wanted to go to pizza hut for lunch so I thought it would be nice. I enjoyed my lovely lasagne whilst Evie munched her pizza. I started feeling very tired and dizzy, sick and faint. I took Evie to the toilet and had just enough notice to warn her what was about to happen. BAM next thing I know I am on the toilet floor and Evie is holding my hand. 2 lovely ladies we're asking if I was ok. Cue me turning as red as Santa's coat.
I don't know if it was that I didn't get much sleep, pushing myself or the fact that I am due for another B12 jab soon. When my iron goes low I have a fainting problem. I think it was a mixture of both. I rang my mum and sat in pizza hut waiting for her to get there ( luckily she was in town anyway). I then came home and slept. 7 hours solid - I must have needed it!
Better get on....
So as I get back to the last of the wrapping and go and pop some more pills for my aching body I will leave you with the following it aptly describes how it is. The shampooing bit especially!
Welcome to my world!
