I Could Sleep for a Week

I have zero energy. Whenever I feel tired for no reason I always feel the tiniest bit of fear. That was how a depression I went through when I was in my twenties began. I think. How could I forget things like that??

But I also always get tired at the beginning of the lap swim contest I’m participating in, and then that turns around. After I get used to the increased miles (double what I normally swim) it makes me feel more energized. So it could be that. The doctor I saw this morning (regular checkup) said I might be dehydrated, which could be contributing.

Just to be sure though, I’m going to start doing mood-enhancing things, like bringing my computer to Central Park, or the river, and writing out in nature instead of home. I think I might be too cooped up.

Finney is keeping me company. I have great Finney news, by the way. His diabetes is currently in remission! No insulin injections for now! It’s a kitty miracle.
