Update and jeep stuff  
My Mr. Burns icon is perfect right now. This is how I feel since yesterday. I'm very weak and tired. Been doing my exercises and my shoulder is slightly better. I can sleep on it for a bit longer. I felt great yesterday so naturally I over did it. I went to the dump my myself. Was happy to get the trash out. Then I washed my jeep in the drive way. That should have been it for my activity but no. Then I went out again for a humburger. So that's two drives in one day which for me and my condition I guess was too much. But that's not all. I got the cover for my Jeep that I've been wanting for a while. It was a huge box but I had to try it out right away. It was the point of washing the jeep so it would be clean under the cover to protect it from the sun. Well it's WAY harder to put on a jeep cover than it is for a short, flat sleek Camaro. It took a lot of pulling and pushing and holding and I should have waited for Chris but that's so typical with me being a J I had to do it RIGHT NOW! I was thrilled I finally got it on but I started to feel it right away. And when I got inside I had shallow breathing, and muscles that felt like jelly. I had to lie down as even sitting took too much energy. I've made some doodles of Fear limp and on the ground because that's how I've gotten. Annoying when my mind is fine and wants to keep doing stuff but my body gives out. Good thing Chris finally came home. Today I'm still weak but trying to regain my energy. I'm sure this still has to do with my surgery and my energy level won't be right for a while. For a normal person what I didn't wasn't that big of a deal. I want to get back to normal. Before my surgeries this stuff probably wouldn't have phased me. Oh and on top of that pretty bad back pains when I still then get up and I can't move because it hurts too much. But I've had that for years and I'm used to that. Wish that's all it was. Having no energy sucks.

Chris bought me Saint's Row 4 for PS4 so I'll be starting that today with my own Fear character. I know what missions to avoid too so it should be a fun game. I'll have to get some screen caps of that for sure. Tomorrow we plan to work around the house and try to empty more of the garage. I'm working on a time lapse video of a pitcher opening. It's my first time so I've made some mistakes like bumping the camera, changing the frame rates and then technical problems like the camera not wanting to record. It thought it had a low battery when it's been plugged into the wall the whole time. Battery should not be an issue. I hope it turns out decent at least. The pitcher has opened already but I don't know how long it will take to put the lid back all the way if at all. So I'm still filming it though I'm tempted to stop it.

I'm sorry you feel bad. I know all about my mind wanting to keep going, but body says no. I've had problems with energy levels for years, so I know how to push through.

Thanks. Looks like today will be a recovery day for me. I'll probably just game today then. Yes I really want to do other stuff though.

Aw man that's pretty bad luck your body turned on you like that, one thing after another. Unfortunately I'm rather familiar with "mind says yes, but body says no" as I've had that happen several times to me before, though sometimes it's the other way around. Case in point, whenever I do exercise my body is always telling me, "get to work you lazy bum!", but then my mind tells me, "don't overexert, you'll regret it later!" and most of the time that served me well. That said, there were times when my mind told me to do something I shouldn't do, for instance staying up past a certain sleep time because my mind said, "yes stay up!", then regretted it.

Thanks. This does happen to me once in a while. Hum, can't say I've had that happen. We J's are wound pretty tight and always want to do something, even if it's a small easy thing. We get mild guilt if "nothing" productive is done. I've often said I "wasted" the day and Chris tells me why it wasn't time wasted and reminds me I needed to rest. Think grumpy batman for me haha. I can relate to the latter. There have been times when I knew I was going to over do it but did it anyway and paid for it.

That is not right that you have no energy. Although I am the same. And my mind goes where my body can't. You have my commiserations.

Yeah I hope it will pass. I don't think I'm fully recovered yet. It might take me several weeks to get back to normal. I know you've been going through bad times too and am also wishing you the best.

I hope your lack of energy passes and you get better.

Yeah, hopeful I will get my energy back, too.

Thanks, Des!
