I’m having an off moment, I feel so sad
I should feel good, my daughter and grandson have just left after a visit but instead of feeling lifted, I feel down. I can’t put my finger on why… it feels like loneliness, I feel a little abandoned, a little left behind even though I’m not technically alone in the house, hubby is upstairs watching football
Usually I’d have gone with them for the day, they were off clothes shopping for an upcoming holiday but I’m still resting following a day at work yesterday.
These heightened emotions following the stroke can be hard to deal with. I need to do something but don’t have the energy at the moment, a vicious circle.
I can’t even distract myself with eating, I used to be an emotional eater a nice cup of tea with a biscuit (or four) would ‘solve’ most things (not really, I know this) but I haven’t ate a biscuit since the stroke, reducing saturated fats, healthy eating etc and a carrot stick just won’t ‘cut it’
The logical side of my thinking knows the feeling will pass.
So what to do, listen to music, read, watch TV, try some meditation, so many choices.
