Drained

So last night was the second night of not sleeping properly. I feel tired during the day but as soon as my head hits the pillow, bam my brain goes into overdrive.  It is not even anything in particular.  Could be ideas to fix bugs in software at work I’d recently been working on, plans to do other things in my spare time or just random wandering through my past.  I hope I can break this cycle soon.  I am finding it really hard right now to find the energy.

Update

Haven’t posted for a while for one reason or another. It has been a rough time recently but I feel that I am coming out the other end finally. Cleo is on the mend although she has a bladder infection that she can’t seem to shift. She is in remission though so that is good and has a lot more energy than what she did have at the beginning. That is not always a good thing though! I injured my shoulder somehow and it is still giving me grief even after around 3 weeks now.  It may even be longer.  Sitting in an office chair makes my shoulder burn almost to the point of being unbearable.  Anti inflammatories seem to take the edge off but it is never really gone.  There doesn’t seem to be an end in sight but I’m keeping positive.  Exercising and getting some physiotherapy should sort …
