Out Of Order

I've been utterly useless for almost any purpose for at least a week now.

I've been sleeping at least 18 hours a day, and been exhausted for the time I've been awake.

I've missed things I wanted to do - I didn't get to church for Good Friday, or Easter Sunday.  Last night I was woken by a phone call - because I just hadn't turned up at a trivia night I had been going to with friends from my Toastmasters' Club.  (I completely forgot - and couldn't gather the energy to go if I'd remembered.)

I've moved from the bed to the couch and back, and done very little else.

Right now, I think it's time to stick an "Out of Order" sign on my head until further notice.

My brain's not functioning.  I've sent text messages to the wrong person, and been totally confused about basic things.

I regularly warn people how unreliable I am.  However, when they know functioning Iris, they don't really understand just how bad zombie lupie Iris can be, not until they meet me in this state.
My dog understands.

My dog, however, always understands. Whether I'm functioning properly or not, she's always happy to just be with me whether I'm doing things or just lying around.

Hopefully, in a few days, I'll start to get some energy back, because there's lots of things I'd rather do than just sleep all day.

Until then, I'm putting the tv on and lying on the couch.



Have you ever envisioned yourself as a patron of the arts, but don't have the money of a Medici? Patreon is the 21st century way of sponsoring artists of all types. You can be a patron of my writing for as little as $1 a month.  Patrons will receive electronic copies of each new book I write.
