In my last post I mentioned my concern for another day in the afternoon heat. My fear was well-founded. Just before Josh's second All-Star game was done, I started feeling funny. As we were rounding up our belongings, chairs, etc., my legs were shaking, head pounding, nausea, faint and a funny sensation throughout my entire body. As I settled in the truck for the hour ride home, I felt like I would pass out, sweat pouring. I dosed off and on. When arriving at our daughter's home I had a hard time walking. We excused ourselves from dinner and went home. After a brief nap, I could function briefly. Had a very sound sleep at night. I woke up this morning not feeling great, but there was still one game to play. The team did awesome.
I feel my body's reaction was from the lack of rest for several days and the heat. Even though everyone was very attentive to ensure I sat in the shade, I was unable to have periods of time to lay down.
Not feeling well, was again my fault, but didn't want to miss Josh's game. I have trouble balancing my need and my wants. I am so frustrated with being limited. I don't have time for being limited!! I realize God is trying to show me the slower side of life, which I always prayed for, I just didn't want to hurt.
