I'm really scatterbrained at the moment. In fact, I'm quite pleased that I focussed long enough to put some music on, given I am capable of listening and enjoying it at the moment.

Last night: Eddie Izzard was on telly. I was watching and laughing my head off - then just drifting off into the internet, even though there was nothing happenning there... I had to keep reminding myself to look at the television.

That's what I mean by scatterbrained. Poor focus. Even when something is tantalising, your eyes just slide off. I still don't understand it.

Current goal: wash and dress and go outside before it gets dark.

A family friend had her 80th today, I was not able to go. Shall try and send her an email.

I'm like that right now, too. I suspect it's simply stress.

I've been like that lately - for me it's an after effect of the Legionaries Disease that will eventually fade as my body recovers. Super annoying with a constant feeling that there was 'something' I should be doing.

It strikes me as a very counter productive survival trait.

Funnily enough - your experience is of post-viral fatigue, which is a brief (and usually milder) version of CFS.

And yes, getting sick is not a good survival trait.

I got a stern lecture from the doc about taking it easy. He claimed that there were now studies indicating a majority of CFS cases began as "unresolved respiratory infections".

I'd never heard that before, is it something you've come across?

Well, I certainly did *not* take it easy, so I don't know where he's getting his information from.

Respiratory infections - yes. "Unresolved" - I'm not sure what he means by that. Lots of people, including myself, can date the onset to a cold, or influenza, or glandular fever (that's a big one, in fact). But AFAIK, it's usually pretty clear that the original infection has gone.

I had had a cold, then sinusitis. Then I thought I was okay, then about a week later I crashed.

I'm often like that and I don't like it at all. I call it multislacking and I don't have an excuse for it. Seems such a waste of time, or of energy. I try to work on not letting it happen so much. If I remember to think about it, that is...
