Feeling Better This Morning

I did have a rough day yesterday. I'm doing better today, although I could really use a good solid 8-9 hours of sleep. Woke up at 3:30am thinking about stuff and couldn't get back to sleep. But yesterday evening, between emailing a couple of friends and then talking to a couple of other friends, I feel a lot better.

Luckily, I have some work things to do that will reorient my thinking. The work things are positive and interesting things to do, which will get me away from spinning over and over about the stuff that was bothering me yesterday. It'll help put me back on my feet again. I have a teleconference with the National Science Foundation today - I'm on the Advisory Committee for the Government Performance Reporting Act. NSF has to prepare a report that shows that America's investment in science is bearing fruit. Then, I think I'm supposed to chat with another colleague about a new grant proposal. Then, lunch with a friend. Then, a massage. Then, I have to go back to radiation oncology and do the set up for treatments next week. So, it's a busy, full day.

I told my son that I was going to get zapped with radiation. Then, my dad told him that I might start glowing. He he.

Thanks to everyone who read the post and are sending their love and support. Also, thanks to those folks who talked to me last night - whether by email and/or telephone. Missy also gave me a little pick-me-up gift - thanks, Missy! It was much appreciated!
Thank you, Dee

Glad that you are feeling better today (although sorry about the insomnia. I get that wake up at 3:30 with the mind spinning kind. It's brutal). I am especially glad that you have projects to inspire you and supportive people in your life. Take good care, L.

Hi Laurie,
Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one with the brutal insomnia. Hate it hate it hate it. I expect I will sleep well tonight. Had a good day - started out rough, but had a good lunch with a friend, then a great massage, and saw the radiology tech - he's the same guy that treated me five years ago. Nice guy -laughed at my boob jokes. So, I'm feeling better. I hope you're doing well, too.
