Sometimes I feel like a butterfly fluttering from one story to the next and other times a leap frog who hangs ten in the air too long before turning the next page. Do you ever find yourself sporadically reading like this? I don’t think it has anything to do with the books I’ve chosen to read, but me. I go through periods of time when I can’t read, I can’t write, I can’t work at full capacity at my day job because I can’t focus. I’m going through that stint right now. I feel like a couch potato when I come home in the evenings. I’m tired. Mentally drained. I have no energy and yet I’m going to be early and I’m still tired. I’m taking a new medication for the Migraines which is helping with them, but it is causing other issues which is feeding into this lack of focus. I feel like I’m in a vortex but can’t climb out.
I’m sure many of the symptoms/problems I’m having are because I am a woman of my age. My hormones are in a flux. They don’t know whether to be up or down. I’m taking medication to try to control this, and maybe it will help in time, but right now I’m hanging ten. So I think if I can find myself a good audio series I might just try it. Listening to a book and allowing my brain to visualize that way sounds good.
