Blogging for Invisible Illness Week

Yesterday marked the start of National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week, so I am blogging for invisible illness awareness.

I was supposed to blog yesterday and write a meaningful post, but my CFIDS got in the way. I was just too tired. Go figure.

I am currently in the Midwest United States on a grueling week-long trip to five different cities for work. These trips are so tiring that I don't have much energy left for anyone or anything, including blogging.

Fortunately, my fever seems to have left me, and there is time between appointments and travel that I am able to take daily naps. I've also been able to eat some fantastic meals!

Anyway, I'm too tired to write anything more, so I'm going to take a nap. I should get back to my normal blogging next week when I'm back home.

Today's Activities: out of town for work. Today's Most Annoying Symptoms: exhaustion, drowsiness.

Mood (10 is best): 6
Energy (10 is best): 2
Physical Discomfort (10 is worst): 2

It's also Book Bloggers Appreciation week (I write two book blogs) - busy blogging week!

I really can't imagine work travel with CFIDS. I traveled a lot for work before I had CFS, and it was exhausting then!

Good luck this week - glad to hear you are able to fit naps in!!

I hope when you get home things slow down for you and you get some good rest and recover time....I'm glad the fevers have left, I've been dealing with fevers this week and it's not fun.

You ask about other ME blogs - I began mine long before I became ill, so it's not really an ME blog as such, though I've got some relevant links.

Good luck!

Sue - Thanks for the well wishes! I know I’m pretty nuts for doing what I do. Thankfully, I seem to have figured out balance and pacing when it comes to travel...I think...

upnorth – I’m sorry to hear about your fevers. They stink. Period. Hope you start to feel better soon.

Nicky – Thanks for visiting my blog! I’ve added your blog to my list.
