I slept all weekend hoping that by Monday I’d feel better and be able to go into work. I woke up feeling like trash though. I have that weird taste in the back of my throat that only comes when you’re sick. Nothing is making me feel better. My throat hurts and is itchy. I’m sneezing with a runny nose. I’m cold and hot. My stomach is not crazy but it’s also not right. I ate things for breakfast that usually make me feel really good. I am on my second cup of coffee. I took my vitamins and my medicine. Still, I have zero energy, zero interest, zero improvement. I’d rather be at work completing some things that I got a lot of traction on recently. I feel like I’m trapped in the house. We took a drive last night to get out of the house and away from the coverage of the Orlando tragedy but once I was out, all I wanted was to be back inside in my pajamas.
Oh AND a crazy thing happened to me last night. I went to sleep at around 11pm, having taken two NyQuils before I went. At 2am, I woke up thinking it was the morning. I was like, wide awake for a few minutes. I was able to put myself back to sleep but I woke up again at 3am REALLY wide awake and unable to go back to sleep. I got up and went to the bathroom and read for a while. I was finally able to put myself back to sleep at four but then I woke up at five (to the alarm). I pushed that off to six and finally got out of bed. I took Shirley out and did some stuff around the house, then went back to sleep around seven I guess. Usually, nothing wakes me up. Maybe the NyQuil wore off and woke me up? I don’t know. All of this is so boring, believe me, I know.
Anyway, I just have to let this sickness run its course. I keep wanting to dive into a TV show and get really absorbed but I am so frustrated by being inside and on the couch that I’m rebelling against my own best interests. What I should really do is go take a shower, w which always makes me feel a lot better. If I did that, I’d at least feel like half a human. I feel very half-hearted about any attempt to move around though. Damn me.
