Exhaustion

Yay, another week down. I'm completely exhausted and after the doctor's appointment, I have a lot to think about. I'm still not managing this as well as I'd like to be, since it's obvious that others are aware of the struggle. There are no easy answers when it comes to baancing Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and a college education. Managing stress has never been my strength and I guess that's becoming more obvious. I would love to sleep for about 12 hours straight and then maybe wake up with half the energy I need to get everything done.

I realize this entry is disjointed, but as I have a lot to think about, I'm not sure how to put it down on paper eloquently. I'll say this though: the "well maybe it'll get better" approach I tend to take when the pai n is really really bad doesn't work, and I'll avoid it in the future, especially after being told today that that's a bad thing to do with RSD. After seeing how long it's taking me to recover from last week's episode, I'm sure I don't need that ever again.

Please don't worry about me. Things will be okay once I have more sleep. I have an awesome doctor and it wasn't a bad appointment, I just need to do some thinking.

Hugs!
Nickie
