Autumn Anxiety

Sep 22, 2021 - 0 comments

I've been feeling anxiety for the last few days. It is hard to work. I feel completely drained of energy. I don't feel happy about anything. I tried light therapy this morning. It seemed to make me less anxious, maybe. I still was very sleepy and took a nap. I felt a little better after the nap. My stomach is always upset.

This anxiety has not occurred this year before now. It has just started this autumn in the last few days. It is raining and has been for 2 days. There is no pollen. It must be simply the changing of the season and the shortening of the days.

I'm thinking I should increase my Effexor now instead of waiting until November or December. I don't like feeling like this. It is utterly terrible.

I can't seem to get enough sleep. I'm always tired.

Stomach Pain & Headache

Sep 16, 2019 - 2 comments

I've had a bad cold but it didn't stop me much. I kept exercising and felt OK. But, now I have stomach pain and a headache. The ragweed is high (53) today. Alternaria mold was not measured but the overall mold count looks high. This is definitely the time of year when the Alternaria is high. I have not been taking Singulair this year at all and have not had a problem until now. Adding that might fix my problems.

Good Sleep Still Tired

Probably 9 hours of sleep. Still feel very tired. Headache. Muscle tension in my shoulders, neck, chest. Possibly because I had tea around 3pm yesterday which affected my sleep. Hard to think well. Eyes hurt. Melatonin is not shutting off? Meds eventually solve the muscle tension as the day goes on. Dawn light should be shutting off the melatonin.

Headache Better

The alternaria mold count is almost 500 today, but my headache is better. So, it must have been a cold rather than allergies. That is, assuming the count is right or similar for Columbus as the count comes from Dayton. No anxiety. Having a few PVCs.
