Sometimes it’s just this way.

I’m waking up slowly. I didn’t sleep well due to insomnia. I don’t think I’m totally rebalanced after vaccination yet. I feel much better than I did but I still feel a little off. I also have that smell to me again which concerns me a little as my monthly still hasn’t come on yet. I woke up to a freezing cold flat because the heating hadn’t been on all night. The cats had even intertwined themselves into the duvet. I got up to put on heating and warm day clothes on the radiator. I’m drinking a large glass of water to wake up. I have my TMA to finish and it’s the last day before the deadline so I have to make sure my brain is able to function soon. I don’t feel like doing it but the deadline means I have to try my best and make sure it is submitted. The majority of it is done but I was struggling with missing parts. The word count was far too low by a significant amount. I can’t even warm up with the electric blanket on and the heating today. I don’t think I will be going for a walk yet. I don’t feel back to normal enough. I pretend that the world outside doesn’t exist because then I don’t feel like I’m missing anything.

I haven’t been inside for this long a period for a long time. That is a significant sign that I’m genuinely not right at the moment. I have felt zapped of energy for days. I was tired before vaccination. That is just now amplified since I went for it. These affects are all normal after vaccine depending on your bodies response. Some lucky people don’t get anything. I always get a cold or something near my monthlies. I didn’t think about the dates when I booked the vaccination appointment. I may not have reacted in the same way if I’d timed it differently. It’s done now and my body just has to deal with the side effects. I am sure that by this time next week I will feel normal again. Please don’t let my experiences put others off having their vaccine, most people don’t have any after effects.
