Low energy

I have been feeling very low energy because of my fears/concerns over a family member's health problems (the situation in my last post). There is really nothing I can do right now, but I have been having a hard time not worrying and thinking about it constantly.

My sleep has been terrible, so my energy has been terrible too. I have tried both variations -- working out and not working out -- and the exercise seems to help. Today I even did a more-intense-than-planned All-Women's Ride with Team Toledo, and getting out on my bike and really pushing myself helped a lot.

I don't have much of anything I can do to help anyone else right now, so I'm taking care of myself the best I can.  I figure it's conserving my energy for when more is needed from me.

  1. I'm sorry you're going through this situation. Taking care of yourself sounds like the best thing you can do for your relative, and you're doing that. Hope you can get some good sleep soon.

  2. So sorry. Been there. If you are dealing with complications of diabetes, REALLY been there.

    I would suggest keeping your kitchen stocked with the right foods as being super helpful. Consider cooking meat and freezing it if you don't already. Be careful to keep any suspect foods/nonfoods OUT of your house. Then you can pack as needed for emergencies and will eat in the most self help way possible 3 meals a day, every day.
