Feeling Good? REST
Memory is such a temperamental thing when you have seizures. I started to write this post because I haven't had a seizure in almost 3 weeks, but as I write it I wonder if I already wrote a post about the topic I wanted to discuss, yoga. I hate to sound like that person that keeps pushing exercise or diet but I honestly can't help but feel like it's such a big factor in why I haven't been having the amount of seizures that I normally have.
Yoga has helped more than any medication or diet that I've tried since I started having seizures over 6 years ago. Plus, I found a new way to implement it in my life, one I NEVER thought I would do, but it has been extremely satisfying. I wake up 25 minutes earlier and I do a 15 min yoga practice. Oh the horror. But after the first time I was shocked, I felt amazing all day long, it was so worth it. It actually makes me want to wake up the next day and do 20 or 30 minutes. I haven't yet, because honestly it is really hard to find good classes and I haven't had the time or energy to look. So, I've been doing the same class for over 2 weeks now. That sounds boring but hey, I haven't had a seizure in weeks. Plus, I've had a lot more energy at work, and I've felt a lot more cognizant. At least until the past few days.
I'm not really sure why that is. It could be because I just feel exhausted, like I always have so much to do. I've also been working A LOT. My job has been asking for mandatory overtime each week. "Asking". But I like my job, and I like having a job, so what do you do? But now I'm running out of steam and have been living in slow motion for the past few days. I feel like I can't get anything done. I am, just very slowly. Doing yoga in the morning helps because not only does it get it out of the way, I have been able to be more efficient during the day, and losing time due to seizures. That also might be why I'm so tired the past few days. Maybe I just need to rest. So that's all I've been doing since I got off work today. Resting, laying on the couch.
And work was pretty weird today. I don't even know what I got done. Not a whole lot, because I couldn't think so I definitely wasn't about to call anyone or make any big decisions. This is why I leave excellent notes on all of my cases, because on days like this, where I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing, at least I've left myself a trail of bread crumbs. At least I can put off tasks for the next day or the next. It's like I said, memory is a temperamental thing, and I just tell myself that it'll come back soon, and I hope that it does.
