New update at For The Dream.

It's been a very tiring week, and deciding to go on a four hour walk over the weekend didn't help.

Rule one: next time I go on a four hour walk, I'm wearing better fitting shoes with better socks.

Rule two: long periods of exhaustion after a lot of physical activity *can* be alleviated in part by eating high quality protein in decent quantities.

I'm sorry I've fallen off the face of the earth, and thanks to everyone who commented on my last few journal entries. I've been exhausted, busy, and having funky mood problems over the past couple weeks. I think things might be getting better.

Yeah with the funky mood problems. Been there.

Hope they do get better.

(And, I'm reading. But I'm not one of the people you have to persuade.)

Thanks. :-)

The mood problems... part of the problem is that I've gone off my Wellbutrin, because I just need to know if I can, and, well, there are other reasons. I'm on SR. I think XL was working great, and I think SR could be Wellbutrin SuxxoR or however that would be rendered in leet.

But regardless, my gut (as in "gut feeling" not "digestive system") thinks that going off the Wellbutrin is a good idea... and, honestly, it wasn't helping much when I was on the SR.

John, I have found a few "teas" that help stabalize moods with no unpleasant side effects, and taste good as well, if you would be interested. It is interesting in that they are also very good for you.

As for the good quality protien to offset exhaustion, yeah, that works. So does enough rest. Take good care of yourself.

I'd like to know more about the teas, for sure.

Rest is a good idea, but what I meant was that I was useless for anything *but* rest until I ate about six ounces of chuck steak that I was in the process of turning into barbecue and chili. Once I ate that, it was like someone had turned the energy switch back on.

You realize, of course, that this when you mentioned this it made want to come up and stock your freezer with home-cooked pork loin and tandoori chicken and things of that sort.

Someone this weekend, during what served as the apc equivalent of a foodporn thread, noted that food, on occasion, is love made tangible. In which case making food could be described as making love. (-:

Chuckle; love, I had plenty of protein, I just hadn't thought to *eat* enough of it. But I do love that you care, and when you're making the food, yes, I do feel very much that it's making love :-).
