The concert went quite well – and my voice held up, which was good.  But today I am totally shattered.  All I want to do is crawl into a hole and go to sleep – but if I sleep now, I won’t sleep later on.

It’s a lovely day here.  I wish I had the energy to go out, maybe take the dogs for a walk.

I am seeing the doctor tomorrow, so I will talk to him about thyroid insufficiency, as I think that may be a factor.  According to an article I read, thyroid hormones can be beneficial in the treatment of depression, and given my family history, I think it would be worth a go, even though my blood tests have never shown a level of thyroid hormone that falls within the clinical levels for treatment.  Fingers crossed.
