Distractions, Distractions, Distractions – Fibromyalgia
I’m having one of those days, where I can’t quite keep up with my thoughts nor can I stay on track. As I’m tackling one task, another pops into my mind which seems like more of a priority. So, then I flip to that one. While on the way to tackle the latest task (not having completed the other) I stumble across a couple more distractions.
I stop in mid-track and change direction. Happens to the best of us, right?
Each of four is thinking about something other than their art: Jane Austen, about her upcoming haircut; Verdi, about chocolate cake; Matisse, of a cat; Mme. Curie, of a beach scene.
Sure we all get distracted and wander off track, to a degree but this inability to focus is way beyond normal. It is so frustrating not being able to get a grip on my thoughts; to keep them focused on just one thing.
It’s like I’ve lost yet more of me to Fibromyalgia.
Some of my greatest professional (and personal) attributes have weakened…
- quick decision making
- being able to multi-task
- staying focused
Many days I’m able to reel it in, this ever wandering mind of mine. Some days, like today though the distractions win out. I get frustrated and upset at not being able to stay on track. So many tasks get started and nothing gets completed. The more frustrated I get, the more easily diverted I am.
Until it becomes almost unbearable and then the exhaustion sweeps over me. You’d think that with the fatigue my mind would slow down, but it doesn’t.
Now I’m stuck with a racing mind, so many ideas, so much to do and I have no strength left. Sleep is not really an option because my mind won’t let me.
So here I sit as I continue trying to PUSH through this entry about distractions that I’ve been trying to finish for what feels like forever.
