It finally caught up with me

Yesterday, I got out of bed, showered, got dressed and went to work. A normal Monday. Until about three in the afternoon. A tiredness I haven't felt in ages came over me. I was barely able to stay awake for the rest of the afternoon.

Today, I simply could not get out of bed and go to work. I hit the snooze button until it bled I think. I finally got up and called in sick. I simply couldn't go in. I went back to bed and slept another three hours.

When I did manage to drag myself out of bed, I started making some coffee. It was only then that I realized what was wrong with me.

During the last month, I had given every ounce of emotional energy I had to the Rockies. I had watched everything there was to watch on TV, read both Denver papers front to back looking for any Rockies news, scoured the internet for news and "opinion", found and  joined Purple Row.  And it was all so exhilarating. Now that it's over, I am purely and simply exhausted.

A similar thing happened to me when my dad became so ill and then passed away. I had put all my energy into helping my mother though that process. It was only after I got back to Denver that I realized how exhausted I was.

I did manage to venture out and grab a few groceries this afternoon, scoop up both "special editions" of the papers, and get back home. Tonight I'm starting to feel a little bit like "normal" again.

Still - I wouldn't trade it for the world. What a run, what a ride, what a (fill in the blank). Incredible. I am wondering, however, if any of you other denizens of the Row have had a similar experience? How has the end of Rocktober affected you?

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
