spoons and reading

I first ran across this on puppybraille's journal but hadn't thought to post it here. Having just seen it in a comment on another journal, I now give it to the rest of you, my readers. It is becoming quite relevant for me.

I give you the spoon theory.

I have used up a lot of spoons this week trying to read for my classes. I'm not sure how I'm going to manage this semester... I seem to have been blessed with books whose authors use very long sentences with very lofty language. By the time I get to the end of the sentence and define all the words so that I can understand them, I don't remember what the point was. Reading takes me twice as long. On top of all this reading, I somehow need to do some field hours every week. I also need to keep up with housework--or at least the basics. I'd like to have some time for writing--I still miss doing my substantial entries here.

I started a new supplement to see what happens to my head. So far, I have managed to break a string of migraine days despite eating cream cheese last night and some nice rain today. This could be a good sign.

Today I read a bit of commentary about the instructions to women in 1 Corinthians 7. Perhaps I will post my thoughts tomorrow. We will see. I have a paper to write for another class, and my head feels crowded and confused. I think sleep is calling.

I thought you might like that. *smile* How are you feeling lately? I'm guessing your Pred trip is up. Are you still getting any benefit out of it?

I'm down to ten mg and am slowly going back to how I was before.
