One of those days (weeks)

Thanks for comments, as always, I do appreciate them.

It's a good job I'm going for the pedicure and foot massage this afternoon, I need a bit of pampering.  It's one of those days where everything is going wrong - well, it was yesterday too.

I've got tons of things to do, most of which are not going the way they're supposed to, for one reason or another.  It's all a load of minor irritations, nothing earth shattering, but together they're all adding up to get under my skin and just generally piss me off.  And give me gut trouble and a perpetual headache and terribly stiff and painful shoulders and neck from tension.  

Got nurse appointment this afternoon, after the pedicure so hopefully I'll be a bit more relaxed and able to have a useful conversation with her.  Got a lot to discuss - diabetes review, weight, sudden significant rise in BP and cholesterol.  Weight isn't moving, hardly surprising given that recent events and lots of ongoing stress mean I can't stick to the diet, although I do try to eat healthily and low carb at least a couple of days a week.

Got a couple of appointments later this week, and a possible trip up to the Midlands as well for important family stuff....the ongoing aftermath from Mum's death.  That's if I can fit it in.

Sleep continues to elude me every night - well, decent amounts of it I mean.  I can't stay asleep for more than an hour or so at a time.  I do things like listening to a meditation app on my phone just before bed, not drinking coffee after mid afternoon, using a lavender face cream and spraying my pillow with a calming lavender spray, practising relaxation and breathing techniques.  All to no avail.  I dare say it will get better when the stressful stuff reduces.  Right now though, I'm really suffering from lack of sleep just when i need it the most.


  1. Why is it, when you have a bad day it turns into a week, I hope this new week is better for you. Here it's raining after a bright start, so a poor start for me.

  2. Oh, Sooze! It just isn't letting up for you at the moment. Enjoy the pedicure, you need a bit of pampering. I hope things get back on an even keel for you soon, you've been on the roller-coaster too long now! Sending hugs your way. xx

  3. If it isn't one thing, it's another and often all at the same time. Small wonder your sleep patterns are all askew, dear Sooze.
    I hope the appointment helped as much as the pedicure in its own way

  4. Have you tried playing soft music very quietly? Just music though, not songs
