It’s funny how even the best of visitors can disrupt one’s routines and things. My youngest sister and her husband were here last weekend, which was fantastic. This was our first chance to spend any significant time with him, and it was also wonderful to spend some time with my sister. Because of the age gap, we weren’t particularly close as children, but we’re developing a nice little relationship as adults (I know 4 years isn’t much of a gap in most families, but there was another sister between us). They got us hooked on geocaching, we had meaningful conversations about life, the universe, and everything, and it we were sad to see them go. In short, it was about as perfect a visit as one could ask for.
Of course, having people in one’s space is always a peril. While they were fantastic guests and not in the way in the slightest, and while we had a smooth visit, there’s always the coming down in trying to get back to normalcy. Some of my routines were slightly disrupted, and I’ve been scrabbling for those to settle since we moved last year. Honestly, we both have. I’m sure we’ll get back into the swing of things in full eventually, but I guess we’re both at that ‘gah, we’re old’ point in our lives where we don’t handle disruption as well as we might have when we were younger.
The main problem I’ve been having is completely unrelated to people though, just my own chemistry being crap. I’ve had insomnia lately,which is dead annoying and anathema to the whole keeping a strict sleeping schedule. Thankfully, taking a melatonin is helping sort of coax my body into doing the sleep thing properly… but there’s a problem with that. You can’t get melatonin over the counter here, so while I have a good supply that I stocked up on last time we were in the States, that’s still a limited supply. I’m trying to not overthink it, but as we know — bipolar and over-thinking go hand and hand.
Mainly though, I’m just hella fatigued. I’m not mad or anything — it is what is. My desire to get a Mirena coil was stymied by the fact the doctor who does it at our office is out for an indeterminate amount of time. There’s a clinic at the hospital that does sexual health stuff, so we’ll be going there sometime in the future. We couldn’t get our heads around it with things like company to deal with, so. Hopefully soon, once we find some spoons for it. 🙂 We’re at the hospital week after next to see my psychiatrist, but I don’t know if we’re going to be up to stacking that with anything else.
Hope everyone is doing well out there.
