@youngestoldcatlady I can’t believe I almost forgot to post this photo of Munch from the other day! He’s getting so big. 3.2 lbs!
Yesterday I was asked why I haven’t been doing lives lately. Honestly I am RUN DOWN.
Something is going on with my system and I’m working with a naturopath, primary doctor and rheumatology to try to figure out why I am exhausted 24/7. I don’t mean the usual “I’ve been cleaning all day and taking care of 500 kittens” exhausted. I mean, sleep 8 hours, take 4 hour naps and still be exhausted. I can drink a ton of caffeine, eat sugar, whatever, and still have no energy. Just getting an hour where I feel up to cleaning is exciting.
Most of my lab work has come back normal except for being low on iron and Vitamin D. I have the autoimmune disease Psoriasis and due to some other blood work results they’ve sent me to rheumatology. I have that appointment tomorrow.
For the most part I wake up tired, drag through my day with a nap or two, and go to bed exhausted. Hopefully we get this figured out soon because it’s miserable!
I’d love to be making more funny videos and doing TNR and keeping up with my new house but first I need the energy.
A counselor said to me the other day “you take care of so many little ones but when will it be your turn?” and that really hit me. I love rescue so much I give all of myself. But I have to remember it’s ok to know my limits and make time for me. Hopefully I get these medical issues figured out soon! I want to be able to take care of myself AND the kittens for years to come. ❤️
