Just feel a bit rubbish

I just feel a bit rubbish today. I didn't sleep at all last night and am worried I'm going to get schizophrenic all over the place. People at church don't understand that it's a long walk home after the service on a Monday and that's why I don't want to go. One woman said 'get on your bike'. How can I explain to people who don't know what's wrong with me that cycling is like climbing mount everest with this lethargy and tiredness and lack of motivation and lack of stamina I have? Grrrrrrrrr blurgh

You don't have to explain yourself to anyone. All you have to do is smile and walk away. No one has the right to question what you do as long as it's legal. And I hope you're feeling better soon.

Yes I'm feeling better thanks. But the not sleeping has really settled in this week. Out of 3 nights in a row, I've not slept for two of them. It's a bit worrying. I have told my nurse. She will ring tomorrow morning to see how I am.

I was on some meds that made me too sluggish to walk properly. Each step was incredibly hard and sleeping 17 or so hours didn't help. That lady, well, I won't say what I'd love to tell her but if you cant go, then couldn't you parents drive you? Otherwise, there are some sermons on TV you could watch.

My parents are in their seventies and don't need to be responsible for transporting me all over the place.

I just didn't go this week. I didn't even tell them I wasn't going to. I will tell them I was having a bad day.
