I was woken up around 10:15 by the cat, then went back to sleep until 12:00. I slept very heavily for the first time in a while, and woke rested. I feel rather better today, and while the pain is still present, my energy is good. More than that, I can feel some of the power and stamina I've been lacking for a while -- I'm calmer, more stable, more focused. The restlessness has turned into a desire to be productive. I'm going to chalk that up to finally getting my food intake, exercise, and stress reduction all in phase.

I got up and got dressed, then came down to have some breakfast. My feet are about as painful as usual, and my back is a little stiff but not sore. I'll probably take care of a few things around the house today, as it's still quite wet outside.

16:45
I've spent most of the afternoon on the computer, getting up occasionally to fetch things. My feet are behaving, so the pain recedes within a few steps. I have good focus and attention, which is a nice change. I'm going to go over to the Willows to play some Ingress before dinner. The more light exercise I can get while I'm feeling good, the better I'll be able to cope with the next crash.

21:00
I decided to walk the Willows, especially since it was quite busy there. It took me about an hour of walking at a slow to moderate pace, alternating with standing for a couple of minutes at a time. I could feel my right knee stiffening up, but otherwise I felt good: my feet weren't sore, my pain level was reasonably low, and I still had energy. I came home to have dinner and watch TV. The television was complex, but I was able to concentrate on it and follow it reasonably easily. I was still hungry after dinner, but I had no appetite for anything I could think of.

I'm finishing some things on the computer, then I'll go off and finish at the Willows for the day.

00:45
I spent an hour and 15 minutes fielding, which meant driving to a couple of locations before I decided to walk the whole thing. I stood for short intervals, but the rest of the time I walked at a good clip around the complex, which is about 1000' long and 250' wide.

I got back into the car and visited a couple more spots, then I felt I was too tired to continue and came home. I was definitely hungry by that point, and had essentially another full meal while watching TV. I'm about ready to go to bed now, but I still feel able to concentrate, and I have enough energy to not worry about climbing the stairs. It feels good to be somewhat functional again.
