Today was one of those days

As I posted on Facebook earlier, today was one of those days:

One of those down days. Haven't slept well three nights running, joints are extra achy. Good thing I have an infusion tomorrow (first full-strength one). Just hoping I can avoid the jaw pain that came with the half dose!

All true.

But. Then I asked myself what do I need to do today to not feel badly about myself?

Get out of the house, I thought.
Work on Adelaide, I decided.

So I packed up the printed manuscript and took myself to Starbucks, where I had a cappuccino (turns out I needed that caffeine) and read through the manuscript, making edits, taking notes, and writing helpful things like "fix!" in the margins.

I feel better now. Still tired. Still in pain. But so much better, in some of the ways that matter most.

Argh, I feel you - not sleeping makes ALL THE THINGS worse, but then I drag myself to my keyboard... and do a little work... and feel like I still have a place in the world that I chose, you know? I feel ya. Still achy, but heck: you've written.

That's exactly it. Even though I didn't make GOBS of progress, I made enough to feel like I moved the ball forward, and that feels very good.
