Absolutely mind-numbingly exhausted

May 23, 2021 | Diary | 0 comments

Woke up feeling exhausted, absolutely mind-numbingly exhausted.

Like I hadn’t slept in 1,000 years.

Was surprised I felt so exhausted given that I got out of bed at about 9am. Felt so tired I could barely string a thought together.

My back really didn’t feel great so I popped a couple of painkillers with my breakfast and then headed out for a walk with Kat.

We went over to Wanstead Park. It was a longer walk than we had planned but my back was hurting for the first hour at least. I needed a proper, decent walk to get through the day and this was a good one and what I needed.

I felt down and on edge today because my back was hurting so much.

I just felt really tired I couldn’t seem to process anything. I also found myself being a little short (I think) and vacant when talking to people.

When everyone left our house there was a sense of relief that I could just wallow in my pain and try and do what I could to feel better.

We went for a nap after lunch and fell asleep pretty much immediately. Both of us slept for 2 hours. I woke up feeling absolutely exhausted still like I had never slept but at least it was something.

We went for another walk after that and headed over to Leytonstone. We were both exhausted today so the evening was mainly having dinner and then battling not falling asleep.

I really really stupidly didn’t take any painkillers before going to sleep because I had already brushed my teeth I didn’t want to eat anything else.

In hindsight that seems something like absolutely I just need to do in the future because my back really wasn’t feeling great going to bed.
