It is difficult to understand why today was so much different than the day before. I finally took some cough medicine before I went to sleep, so I slept well Thursday night. I woke up feeling good, ate a respectable lunch and dinner, and my energy level remained steady throughout the day. It was another almost "normal" day. I even felt a little guilty not going to work.
I particularly wonder about the food issues I am experiencing. For instance, I am not at all interested in coffee, and even chocolate has lost it's considerable appeal. It reminds of being pregnant. There are smells and tastes that I find unpleasant, and I have lost any desire to eat breakfast, which is highly unlike me. In fact, skipping any meal is unusual for me. About the only food craving I have is for protein.
I don't think I can distinguish whether my bad days are rooted in emotional or physical troubles. Right now I'm thinking that "mind over matter" can be powerful. So that is challenge du jour, really every day.... to stay positive.
