Life Babbles

It’s been two weeks! Sorry guys. This post is going to include some rambling of what I’ve been up to (which isn’t much) and how I’ve been feeling, so maybe you will understand why I haven’t been around as much.

I will start with how I’ve been feeling. I am so tired all of the time. I am 30 years old and feel like I’m 80 or something. I hardly have any energy whatsoever. That’s the main reason why I haven’t been blogging much at all. I just have no energy to do so. I actually feel relatively decent today, which is why I’m squeezing this post in while I feel up to it. On weekends I’ve even been too tired to do makeup looks or to go out and get food. I’ve been having my mom pick things up for me. I just want my energy back! You’re probably thinking I should go to the doctor, but I really don’t want to spend money to go when they probably won’t be of any help. Literally any time I’ve gone to the doctor it hasn’t done anything but drain my bank account. I have to be practically dying to go to the doctors.

With that said, I’ve decided to start trying some herbal remedies to see if that helps. I bought an herbal bitter which is supposed to help with digestion. I’m hoping it will help ease my IBS symptoms a bit. I’ve only been using it a few days so far though. I was hoping it was working, but then tonight I experienced some of my usual cramping (even after I took some of it), so I don’t know. I’ll just keep taking it and see what happens as time goes on. I ordered three herbal tinctures from a different shop last night before I went to bed. I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up today to find that they have shipped already. I’m really excited to try them. One is for healthy hair and skin, one is a mood booster, and the other is an energy booster. I have no idea if these will work or help me at all, but I figured it was at least worth a shot.

Now that I got that out of the way, I will say that I’m excited for Christmas! I want to try to do at least one Christmas makeup look before then, so hopefully I will feel up to it this weekend. I finished all of my Christmas shopping at the beginning of the month, but of course when I buy for others I see things to buy myself as well. I ended up buying a set of earrings among other things. You can see one pair of the earrings in the very first picture in this post. It was a set of three, with yellow, pink, and purple lightning bolts. I wore the yellow pair to work the other day and got lots of compliments.

I ended up getting upset at work today because a coworker brought in gifts for the other girls, but I didn’t get anything. Not even a card. I’ve never really been close with her like that so I wouldn’t expect anything from her, nor do I care that I didn’t get a gift. The whole gift thing is irrelevant to me. What bothered me was that she gave all of them gifts while I was sitting right there. She could have easily given them the gifts before I got there, so I felt it was just disrespectful to wait until my shift started to do so. Once they got the gifts, I had to sit there and listen to them squeal with excitement over their gifts and show each other what they got, all while I just sat there pretending not to notice or care. I just felt so awkward and uncomfortable, and I will admit I felt left out and had my feelings hurt. I’ve worked with her for five years now, much longer than any of the others. Even though we weren’t very close, we would still talk to each other. This kind of thing has been going on the whole time we’ve worked together though. Like she would always decorate everyone’s desk for their birthday, while I never got the same treatment. She’s always been so hot and cold with me. One minute we’re talking and laughing together, and the next I feel like she hates me. I’m done trying. I’m just going to be done with her. My other co-workers can talk about how much they love her and how amazing she is all they want. I can see the wolf in sheep’s clothing and I don’t have time for fakes. I always felt like an outsider back when I was in school, so this whole situation just kind of took me back to that time. All these feelings and memories resurfaced. That’s why I got so upset, but now I’m just going to move on from it.

Now that my rambling is complete, I want to finish this post by thanking the lovely Hunida for sending me this card and little gift package in the mail. We’ve never even had the honor of meeting in person, yet she was still kind and generous enough to think of me and show her appreciation. It really did mean a lot to me!

      1. Great, I donโ€™t like using OTC medications so itโ€™s nice to see other people trying new supplements and natural ways to cure their ailments. (& help their wallets stay packed)

      2. I tried an herbal cold/flu remedy before and it worked wonders! Cleared up my sickness much faster than any OTC medicine. I was thinking back to that, and that’s what made me want to give more herbal mixtures a try. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Sorry to hear about your low energy. I also suffer from low energy. I recently found out its from having PTSD (which is often accompanied by chronic fatigue syndrome). Hopefully the stuff you ordered helps! Low energy is such a pain to deal with, and you’re right, doctors usually don’t help with it. I find that B12 helps and sometimes tweaking your diet too. Best of luck figuring it out!

    Ugh, the story about your co-worker got me so mad! She sounds like a woman that I worked with. She seemed to purposely exclude me from things and would give people gifts or invite people to things when I was standing right there. People like that are just cruel. I can’t imagine doing that to someone. Even if I didn’t like them, I’d never want them to feel like that. Its a really shitty feeling.

    Happy Holidays! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks for reading! I haven’t had much energy since I was a teenager, but this past month it has been bad. It’s hard to make it through work sometimes. I should probably adjust my diet a little bit also because that might help.

  2. Uugghh…mean girls! First, here is a hug from my heart to yours! ๐Ÿค— Second, do not waste any of your energy on negative people. I promise the problem is hers and not yours. Yes, I know that is easier said then done but never forget you have a beautiful soul! You have touched many of us via this blog as Hunida was shown. Love you!

  3. If this is too personal, you obviously donโ€™t have to answer- are you taking birth control pills? I recently went to my doctor with all the issues Iโ€™ve been having and he assured me that all my symptoms were hormonal. We switched my bc to be something besides the pill. Iโ€™ve had a lot of my friends switch off of it for lack of energy and even depression. Just wondering, it might be a hormonal imbalance ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ hope you feel better no matter what the cause!

    1. Yes, I am on BC pills. (I take them to regulate my period and keep the cramps away). I’ve been taking them since I was 18 and I’m 30 now, and I’ve never had any issues until recently. It’s always possible it could still be hormonal though. I mean my 30 year old body isn’t going to be the same as it was when I was a teenager/young adult. There’s always changes going on. I know I get night/cold sweats a lot too. When I googled those symptoms before, the only thing that really came up was anxiety/stress or menopause.

  4. You’re still a better blogger than I am. I’m lucky if I can squeeze out a monthly post.
    I’m ALWAYS tired. My lack of thyroid is a big culprit of it. Sleeping doesn’t do anything for me, and I’m fatigued all the time. Feels like I’m always carrying around a backpack full of bricks and rocks. On top of it, I’m also going through menopause and just had to start on estrogen supplements.
    It sounds like a trip to the doctor might be a good idea to rule out the cause of your fatigue. It could be stress, but it wouldn’t hurt to get some blood tests to check your thyroid and iron levels. Diet and activity levels also play a factor in how you feel. Definitely takes a toll on me, daily.

  5. I know that feeling of not having energy. Hope you’ll get everything you want for Christmas. Sometimes, we’re left out for whatever reason and it sucks. Hopefully something gets resolved with your coworker. Love the gifts. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas!

  6. Ahh! I’m sorry to hear you’ve been feeling so low energy. Has it gotten cold & dreary where you live? Maybe you have a case of the seasonal depression? I’d get that way during Minnesota winters & nothing seemed to give me energy or make me feel better. I hope the herbal remedies help to give a boost! I’m curious what kind you bought & how they work for you!

    The lightning bolt earrings are so cute!!

    That was really rude of your colleague. It seemed like she did it all intentionally to hurt your feelings. I cannot stand girls that are so hot & cold like that! There’s so many that are the same way at my work. I’m so happy that you liked my little gift in the mail & that it made you feel a bit better about it all!! โ™กโ™กโ™ก

  8. I’ve been feeling so tired lately as well! Like, no matter how much rest I get, I still feel tired. I’m beginning to wonder if I just need to start being more active because even though that’s the last thing I want to do when I’m tired, I feel like it helps boost my energy levels overall. But then again this is all speculation because I am still exhausted all the time and it’s making me grouchy haha.
    That totally sucks that your coworkers are treating you that way! It was absolutely rude. So sorry you had to deal with that!
    Hunida is the sweetest!! I love that she sent out little Christmas packages. She’s so caring!

    1. I know! I keep thinking I need to be more active too because I hear that helps with energy also. I think my herbal energy booster might be working though. I’ve been using it all week and I feel more alert. It’s more of a subtle effect though, not a bouncing off the balls type of energy. I’ve been able to focus better at work. ๐Ÿ‘
