Unbalanced: September 30, 2015

I’ve had the weirdest illness and I don’t (still) know what it is (was).  I’m going to tell you about it, a bit, so my absence is clearer.

Yesterday, I got up to go to work and kind of fell all over the place.  I thought I was just extremely exhausted, and I was.  I slept all day and all the next night and I woke up this morning, still fairly wiped out.  At about noon, I was starting to be able to understand things.

Yeah, that was the weird part.  I had been unable to read or comprehend much of what was happening around me.  I have almost no memory of the day.  Mike tells me I called him at work to tell him I would be sleeping in.  I’m taking his word for it.

The other strange part is that I’m not overly alarmed about this entire ‘illness’.  I don’t know what happened, or why I still feel echo-ey or weird, but I’m not inclined to dwell on it which is, strangely, a good thing.  All will be well once this lingering headache is done.

In the meantime, it occurred to me (mid-afternoon) that this is the last day of September.  Tomorrow begins the Month of Balance and the last 31 days of the year.  I remain glad that I started this project on an odd date – it’s not wound up into other happenings or other celebrations (unless you count finishing on Halloween).  It’s going to end with a whimper, as it were.

Let’s all just hope that the first thing that is fully balanced, beginning tomorrow, is my head.

Day 334 scorecard: 1670 down, 155 to go
