Recovering After A Rough Spell

I’m starting to recover after a couple rough weeks. Been feeling more paranoid and irritable than usual. Things started getting better a few days ago. I’m back to more regular sleep even if I am staying up a couple hours later than usual. I still sleep half of the night in my recliner. It seems to be easier on my back and knees.

So far has been a milder and dryer winter than usual. We haven’t had anywhere near normal snow. It actually feels more like prolonged autumn than winter some days. Still gets real cold at nights.

I really haven’t changed my routine much. I drop in on my neighbors once a day. I go to the complex library at least once a week. I contact my family usually once a day. Still listen to lots of audiobooks. I usually kept to myself most of the time for fear of having a breakdown in public. Finally had a minor one a few days ago. Didn’t last long but it was healing like having a good cry or any other emotional release.

Broke down and bought some smaller shirts several days ago. I’m down a full shirt size in the last two years. My aches and pains aren’t nearly as bad. I still get winded occasionally but I can recover from those faster than even a few months ago. I do have problems falling asleep but I get quality sleep once I do sleep. 4am to 9am seems to be my best sleep time. I still take my meds every night. They sometimes make me sleepy.

  1. Hey Zach! It’s great to see an update from you and even better to see that your feeling on the up. I really like how you described that feeling of relief afterwards and I think it shows how strong you are. It’s also a good reminder to me about how even life’s difficult moments can be beneficial in the long run. I don’t know about you, but I’m still in disbelief of my actual age and the aches that come along with it. God bless ole friend! 🙂

    • Good to hear from you man. Outside of my cousins, Caleb Sampson, and the Huffman sisters, I don’t hear much from people I knew from our school years. That’s part of adulthood I suppose. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to tell your friends about the blog.
