Totaly exhausted

Saturday, May 14, Hubby and I helped a new up & coming photographer shoot her first wedding. It was fun and felt good at the time to be 'back in the saddle' so to speak (I used to shoot weddings almost every weekend prestroke).

Well, once home, I totally collapsed and crashed. I was asleep almost before my head hit the pillow, literally.

Today, I ache all over...probably from hopping on and off the platform to adjust the bride's wedding dress. My role yesterday was that of posing and keeping track of shots taken. Keeping track of who's in shots is often like trying to organize fleas. silly.gif

I had fun but I'm exhausted....feel like I could sleep for 16 hours straight. tired.gif

I'm 4 years out from my stroke and yesterday was a real kick in the head letting me know I won't be going back to shooting weddings on my own again.

You remind me of the "joy' of the fatigue thing. I swear if there was one thing I could banish it would be that. I HATE that I cannot sit thru a movie (at home)with my kids without being tired and falling sleep. I usually crash around 9 or 9:30 but am up like 5:30, what the hell can I not push my hours so I can spend it with my kids. Instead I sit around all morning with the cat, till they arise on a weekend, after i have been up 3 or 4 hours by myself. I hate this the most of all the things I stuck with....I feel bad for my kids when they'll say how someone else's mom drove them to the video store at 11:30 at night, when they're at a sleepover. I'm scared of driving at night now, my eyes play tricks on me...... head_hurts.gif
