Week 16

February 5, 2009

This week I was hit by the great big black boxing glove of depression. Unable to think about or do anything. I have to watch TV continuously to keep my brain full. When my attention is not on something the panic sets in and the tears start.

Spend minutes at a time staring into space unable to think.

This sucks big time.

Don’t feel nauseous any more and I haven’t had any headaches so that is a step in the right direction I guess.

I am completely scatty too, keep forgetting all sorts. The book calls it Gestational Amnesia.

    The hormones are running amuck! (definition of such, because I had to look up the spelling, because my own brain is not working on all cylinders: mad with murderous frenzy. LOL!)

    This is the point where Mr. C needs to be on hand for lots of lotiony foot/back rubs. The extra attention will help. 🙂

    I’m going to blog again. I used to be tim-tambolini. Come by sometime.

    As for Gestational Amnesia…when I was pregnant, one day I was driving down Main St. and came to a red light on the busiest intersection in town. I was first in line…I looked both ways, and drove straight through the light. Fortunately no one hit me, but a friend behind me, witnessed me go through and thought she could too…she narrowly escaped a crash.

    A different time I was in heavy traffic in a city I don’t live in and I was looking ahead to my turn off and didn’t notice the long line of car break lights in front of me…I stood on my breaks, but it was too late. I crashed into the lady in front of me. We both pulled off the road to see that there wasn’t much in the way of damage. When the other driver (a woman) saw my pregnant belly she said “Oh, well, that explains it. Don’t worry about it, dear. Carry on and be careful!”
