Questions and Answers

Sharing my world a day late

So it’s Tuesday y’all, which means that I’m a day late for Melanie’s Share Your world. Go to her blog to see the questions without answers and see links to other people’s answers. I totally just… got my days mixed up yesterday, and it didn’t even register that it was Monday and I should be doing Share Your World. I’m not in as much pain as I have been these past few weeks, and I had enough energy to do the laundry yesterday… The same laundry that’s been sitting in the dryer for over a week. Go me. But I’m still tired, y’all. So brain fog still prevails. Anyway on to the questions.

Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner? I don’t really eat your traditional three meals a day. I often snack for breakfast, then eat a big meal and snack for the rest of the day. My medicine regime makes it so that I have to eat in a very narrow window of the day. Like the gut meds I take in the morning have to be taken on an empty stomach and then I need to wait about an hour before eating. I take my psych meds around six and they have to be taken on an empty stomach. I don’t eat anything after that (usually, it’s difficult sometimes) because my thyroid meds, which I take at ten, also have to be taken on an empty stomach. If I absolutely have to eat between six and ten, it’s a light snack like crackers or popcorn. So my big meal is generally between noon and three depending on how hungry I am. Sometimes it’s in the morning.

Who do you admire most in the world? No one comes to mind. I admire a lot of people, but there’s no particular person that rises to the top of everyone in the world.

With the obvious restrictions in place, what do you regret not doing in the last year? Doug and I bought a house this past year. I really wanted to have a housewarming party. Like, a housewarming dinner really with a few of my friends. But… it was not meant to be. I’m not a party person and I don’t do a lot of social events, but I was kind of looking forward to that. Ah well. I guess that’s not gonna happen. Maybe we’ll have one in a couple of years when gatherings are okay again.

And that’s it for this week. Sorry for the short post. I’m really not feeling it today. As for the gratitude part of the post, I’m honestly just grateful for my *very* patient husband. I’m a mercurial person, y’all. My moods change frequently (part of being bipolar, even when medicated) and I change my mind about things A LOT. He is the exact opposite. I’ve tried to rein in my capricious ways but it’s not easy when it’s the very core of my personality. Still, he seems to be getting used to it — after eight years. Some people take a little time to adjust to these things. Ha! Anyway, if it wasn’t for him and his steadfast manner, I dunno where I would be in life. I’m glad I have him in these trying times. I know this comic is late (for Halloween) but the sentiment still stands.

  1. Thanks Willow for Sharing Your World! I love the gratitude comic, it’s perfect and never too late! And don’t fret about the ‘late’ post, I have folks responding on the following Sunday to the previous week’s challenge, I’m flexible about the timing. I just love reading the answers and staying up to date with things! I have similar issues about the whole eating in a timely manner thing, too early and I’m semi-nauseated for the whole day, too late and my sugars are through the roof the next morning. I’m just not hungry on a schedule. Er-umm. We do the best we can, right? Have a great week and feel better soon!
