Today was the day it all caught up with me.


But I am getting better.


After a radical hysterectomy to protect me from the risk of cancer, and the removal of that mass the size of a cantelope...yeah, well... The doctor said that being tired is a real thing to expect. At first I could only stay awake half an hour. Then, I could stay awake for two hours. Gradually, that reversed and I only had to nap two hours.


Now I can go maybe two weeks without having to totally crash.


Today was a mandatory crash day. And I did nothing.


I kept wanting to be productive, but I did absolutely nothing. I slept.


These days always start with fatigue and maybe guilt. Regret.
