My brain’s been feeling off again this week. I’m not sure if the trigger is external or internal, but some familiar feelings started to creep back in last night: one minute I’m eating stew I made in the slow cooker, the next I feel emotional heaviness I haven’t felt in a long time.
I hate when I get to the point where I actually want to reach out and connect with someone but am too tired to function properly, let alone hold conversation. I also hate when my body won’t let me get anything accomplished because my mind is too foggy to concentrate on a given task or (even more annoyingly), half-starts a few different things at the same time but loses the plot sometime before I remember why I’m doing a specific thing, and I drive myself to distraction trying to figure out what it is I was trying to work on.
Perhaps all I need is a better night’s sleep, but I think I could use some kind of acknowledgement that I’m being seen and heard sometimes.
