Thursday - I like Thursdays. I generally don't have to do much on a Thursday, so it gives me a chance to just rest and catch up. After working yesterday AND getting up at 6AM, I am paying for it. Fatigue has hit me hard today. I got up for an hour at 8am but went back to bed at 9am as I was feeling really fatigued. I didn't wake up again until 1pm!! I got up and have just had a lazy day on the sofa. I had to pick Martin up this afternoon, so I have been out of the house today but low and behold by about 5pm I was asleep again. It's just been one of those days and I regularly feel guilty (or lazy) for sleeping so much, but I am learning that if I didn't need it then I wouldn't do it! I spoke to a GP about it once, saying about my worry of giving in to it etc. She promptly told me that I am not giving in. If she prescribed me a medication for something then I would take it without feeling guilty. So look at sleep as a medication for fatigue. She has a point!
