Beer dinner last night was delicious with good company, but food was super rich, and I'm feeling ill this morning. Dog wouldn't let me sleep past 3ish. Race tomorrow, supposed to rain. Blah.

My tests came back negative. No lyme, which is good. But of course, now the problem is figuring out why I've felt so crummy. Is it all in my head? At least if it was something, I could be treated...

Beautiful weather for last night's group trail run. Felt great out there on dry trails for first time in ages. Was so nice to feel good running. Beer dinner tonight should be fun, I hope.

Only a 5 for work stress - I really have a lot to do, but I'm so unmotivated, and this health issue is concerning me and preoccupying my mind. Guess I really need to buckle down. I'll get it done somehow...

Part of the reason I didn't want to go to Dr. - waste so much time, get $150 bill, all for him to order blood tests so I can pay for those and follow-up visit. Checking lots of stuff and for lyme.
Jeff M
4d ·

I've never found a tick on me, but lyme might make sense. I just hope they can find something treatable so I can stop worrying about it and maybe even feel better...

You did right to check, Lyme disease can be very serious. I can only sympathise about the cost. American healthcare is ***ed up. A backwards system of no rights for what is essentially a human right in every other developed country.

Fingers crossed for you, Jeff. Lyme's sucks! But it's treatable. Still, hope it's not that.

Jeff M

Thank you all. Had a few gallons of blood leeched out this morning, so I guess I'll find out soon. And I totally agree, John - we need to fix this healthcare system. Especially since companies cut costs by cutting insurance offerings...

Feeling myself slipping as I get immersed back into normal life routine. I was doing better after vacation, but falling back. I don't want this depression and loneliness.
Jeff M
12 Apr 2019 ·

This has been a hard week. Just didn't feel right all week. The whole chest achiness and head wonkiness really affected me. Really strange and a little scary. Making me feel weak and old.

Jeff M
12 Apr 2019 ·

And another normal, boring, lonely weekend coming up. I tend to fill these with bad food and beer, which makes me feel worse after.

Jeff M
12 Apr 2019 ·

I've been trying so hard to be more positive and keep the depression at bay. I hate that I have to try so hard. It's exhausting after a while. I don't need to be happy; I just want to not be so low. I want to feel good again (physically/emotionally).

Rough night. Woke at 2am w/ chest hurting. Felt like I strained a muscle or something. Still hurts this morning. Maybe slept on it weird or twisted? A little scary...

It feels like a muscle, not something else, but it's just so weird. Felt like this when I had the flu and was achy. So tough morning getting going. I just want to go back to sleep. Blah.

Yesterday was a hard day. Trying really hard to be more positive and keep out of my depressive funk, but it gets harder and harder as days go by. I feel so out of shape and old and tired...
Jeff M
09 Apr 2019 ·

I don't understand - I'm eating well (most of the time), running 30-40 miles a week. I'm not sure why I feel so out of shape lately. Obviously, I indulged more this winter than I should have, but not extraordinarily. Very disheartening.

I know what you mean. Richard Grannon proposed imagining a parental figure (Gandalf was his he said) and have that person tell you 'you're OK. You're doing OK. It's OK'. I thought that was funny. I also do it sometimes.
