Well, the last few years burned me out but good. Even if/when I sleep, I am tired. Bloodwork is fine. I'm just... well, it's been a tough time for a long time, it seems. So...
Is it okay to be this burned out (think: used match) or did I miss some crucial "thing" that could rejuvenate me a bit?
Keep in mind, diet is healthy by any standard, I do try to sleep 8 hours a day even if it's napping, b/c I can't reset my sleep clock by not napping. (Foudn that out when I fell asleep in my chair and fell off the chair! Whoops...Ouch! Even my docs said to not try that again!)
And, no, my docs can't think what else to do but "relax your mind".
Oh. Em. Gee. Sure, it's that easy.
Anyway, bearing in mind I am very limited on any supplements to take due to my epilepsy meds and all? Ideas on how to recover from stress-burnout this bad? Thank you! Let's share!
Usually I say meditation, hydration, eat right, get outside and walk, but that's not helping me... That's just my everyday routine as it is... Hmm... (BTW, I eat high-protein vetgetarian diet, so my adrenal diet/lifestyle thing is already in place. Has been fo ryears. Beginning to think I should eat nachos and drink beer, since my neighbor does that an appears to be perfectly mellow. Oh, wait, that's his marijuana use... Whoops!)
Odd bits of trivia. You can eat snake eggs. Of course you want to get them from isnide the snake, which is problematic... But you can boil 'em up if you kill a pregnant snake!
Half a cup of uncooked lentils has 24 grams of protein --- so it takes only 4 ounces uncooked lentils to get same protein as the same amount of beef, gi ve or take one or two. So... Lentils! That said, complete amino acids for a vegetarian like me? Variety and quinoa.
Speak of protein, whey protein is the "lose fat, gain muscle" protein, but that's if you use the whey protein --- and that supplement isn't regulated. You could get good, bad, or indifferent all in one batch. Whereas whey itself is the liquid left after milk curdles. Yes, that yucky stuff. The milk form scurds, and the watery crap is the whey. It's got some protein and som efat, but in all honesty? Whey itself is gross as heck (my grandma made her own cheese, I've seen this stuf, ew!) so I can't bring myself to try that whey protein powder based on that, let alone the quality control issues. (As in, there are none!)
That said, whey is low in lactose, so if you do need a protein powder, it can be a good choice for the lactose-intoelrant or sensitive:-)
Which brings us to the great question fo the age:
Little Miss Muffett sat on her Tuffett
Eating her curds and whey
When along came a spider
And sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffett away.
NEVER in my life in farm life did we eat curds *and* whey. The whey ran off and went bye-bye, and we at the curds. Who is eating that whey? OMG, y'all. No way!
So what was Miss Muffett being punished for? Hmm...
I'm off to try to recover my brain powder. Power. Oh to heck with it...
May your weekend contain no weariness, only healing:-)_

Hey, all. No therapy today! And little sleep *again*. The weather went from "nromal" to "storm" to --- brace yourself --- 60*F by noon today. That's a lot in 72 hours for the old fibro barometer body!***The average age of a US citizen identifying as a "farmer" by occupation is 58 years old.
