I think I’m finally breaking out the depression and anxiety fuel irritability that I have been fighting for almost two weeks. Got some good sleep the last few days, granted at odd times. I still sleep eight hours a day, but I usually sleep from 8pm to midnight, rattle around for a few hours in the middle of the night, then sleep from 4 am to 8am. Even though I have an odd sleep pattern anymore, everything isn’t going completely bad. I started lifting arm weights in my home about two weeks ago. The first couple sessions were tough as I hadn’t lifted regularly for over a year. But I think it’s beginning to come back. Picked up some multi vitamins, fish oil pills, etc. the last time I bought groceries. I have to think some of my lethargy, aches and pains, etc. were made worse by an unbalanced diet. For most of the winter I ate lots of lean meats, some soups, yogurts, canned vegetables, rice, and occasional baked potatoes. I wasn’t getting much for fresh fruits or vegetables this winter. So I been eating more fresh fruits and vegetables lately. I’m beginning to notice a positive difference. I don’t have as many unexplainable aches and pains and I feel mentally sharper and less scattered overall. My favorite fruit is probably red grapes. My favorite vegetable has to be tie between green peas and carrots.
I still don’t travel outside of my hometown due to the flood problems. Many places are still cleaning up and still in danger of even more flooding. I won’t be surprised if food prices start going up later this year. It’s been pretty rough for a lot of people but I have been spared much of it so far.
