Do you ever have those days where you can’t focus, can’t do anything? That is so me today. I haven’t finished a single thing today, not even the dishes. I’ve started about 20 things, but mostly, I’ve just moved from one room to another, vaguely picking up one thing, putting it away, then moved to another room to pick up some other thing.
I’ve been trying to cut back on caffeine, so I’m going to blame that. I remember now what is so hard about being infertile and trying to not be (beside all the horrible emotional devastation and constant poking and prodding by physicians and technicians).. No Coffee. Oh, man, I need more caffeine.
During the dissertation process, I did not curtail my consumption at all, so I was up to about 5 cups of coffee some days. Now, I’m trying to survive on 1 or 1 1/2 in the AM, then tea in the afternoon. I know, I really do, that copious amounts of caffeine is bad for me… but oh, I miss it so.
