I was starting to think the reason why I'm feeling so draggy is because I'm off my asthma medication! I have not publicly proclaimed that, at least not yet, because I wasn't sure how it was going to go. I went to every other day for a while, then every three days, then every four days (2 puffs once daily), and I took my medication with me on vacation but I didn't use it. I think I used it the night before we left, so that would be Wednesday the 25th, so I have been off the medication completely for 13 days.
I was taking Flovent, the lowest dosage. It is a corticosteroid. From memory, don't quote me, but our adrenals create cortisol. People with asthma typically have adrenal fatigue, and that is why the corticosteroid helps them to breathe better. The corticosteroid provides cortisol when the adrenals aren't. The adrenals also help us to have more energy, so going off my medication could have caused a drop in my energy levels. But it was so minute an amount, I don't know.
Anyway, I was up until 1am fixing a blog problem (not this one) and then I was awake at 6:30. I did lie down and take a nap around 1pm and got up around 3pm. I felt better this afternoon.
However, at the same time, I had no honey today, and no fruit.
Although I did want something sweet, I did not.
Sometimes I find when I want something sweet, I'm tired. I guess that is my body's way of saying, “I'm tired, if you aren't going to lay down and rest, then I want something to perk me up, like sweet sweet candy.” Or, you know, fruit.
I had to pay bills this weekend, and could not make myself do it until this afternoon so have been busy for several hours.
Hubby grilled steak for our Labor Day meal, I did mushrooms, salad and green beans.
And now, I must be off to bed. Night!
