Just a Brief Vent About My Health

I still haven’t fully recovered from my CFS crash following my trip to Chicago in early May. My sleep has been crap. My crap has been crap. My cognitive abilities have been all over the place. No focus. I have the typing-equivalent of apraxia of speech, and sometimes it seems I have my Sword Behind Inappropriate Prepositions equipped. I have not felt rested in a month. My legs have been weak and achy for a month. I’ve gotten more headaches than I usually do. I’m nursing a headache right now. My depression has been more insistent, though that can be mostly explained by my dad’s birthday last week and the second anniversary of his death tomorrow…

I just want to figure out what the heck I have to do to feel even a little bit better. Wake up before noon without feeling hungover. (I haven’t had alcohol since leaving Chicago.) Be able to type the words that my brain composes without needing to go back and edit every single time. (In the previous sentence, I initially typed “ever every” instead of “edit every.”)

Crashes don’t usually last this long. Something’s gotta give. I have important things to do. I have a life to live!

That’s me: Christina Gleason. I’m a professional copywriter, editor, and blogger. My company is called Phenomenal Content. (Hire me!) I’m a relatively high-functioning Aspie who also lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. I am not ashamed to admit that I am in the care of a psychiatrist, who assures me that people in therapy are often better adjusted than “normal” people who are not, because at least we know what our issues are and are working on them. I’m a geek for grammar, fantasy, and select types of gaming, including World of Warcraft and Plants vs Zombies 2. I hate vegetables. I have an intense phone phobia, so I’ll happily conduct business over email or IM instead. I have started writing no fewer than five novels, and I hope to finish one of them...eventually.
