the story of an invisible girl
Still sick, excuse the whining...
Ugh. I did not sleep well last night. The Nyquil I took did not cure my "sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, so I could sleep better and have a good morning". Stupid propaganda. Instead I tossed and turned much of the night. I got up at one point to use the bathroom, and checked my watch. It was just after 2am. Rather than being pleased to see I still had plenty of time to sleep, I was actually disappointed. I wanted it to be nearer to morning; I just wanted the wretched night to end. The next time I got up, I was relieved to see it was almost 5:30am.

I slept from then until my alarm, which went off at 7:30. As soon as I started to sit up, I cried out in surprise. I had stabbing pains shooting through my stomach; it was awful! I stumbled down to the bathroom, holding my middle and whimpering. Then I went back to bed. Fortunately they only lasted about a half hour, then they went completely away. Thank goodness for that.

Once the pains went away, I uncurled from the fetal position and got up again. I figured I might as well go to work, since I wasn't getting any rest at home anyway. So here I am. I'm feeling very congested, but much better compared to this morning. We'll see how long this burst of energy lasts; I may go home early this afternoon.

I went skating again last night (speedskating this time), although I followed it up with hot tea. Tonight I'm supposed to have dance class, if I feel up to going. I think I might skip it. On the plus side, tomorrow is my day off, so I'll finally have time to recover.

Current Mood: sick sick

Yeah, I'll probably do that soon. Just seems as though, if I'm going to be miserable wherever I am, I might as well come here and be paid for it!

Sorry to hear you still aren't feeling very well :( Know what you mean about going into work as you aren't getting rest at home. Sometimes its better to be busy to try and take your mind off feeling crappy.

Hope you start to feel better soon. At least you get to put your feet up tomorrow - make sure you do!

Yes, exactly...if I'm goign to be miserable no matter what, I might as well at least get paid for it! Although I'll probably head out early today. Thanks, I'll do that!

You know if have a cold and some sick time then its time to use some of it.

Stabbing abdominal pains make this really so.

Colds also don't get better if you go speed skating.

I was hoping if I skated fast enough, I'd leave it behind! (:
I'm at home now, hopefully some rest will do the trick.

I feel your pain! Allergies have been kicking my butt lately. I was NOT feeling well at all yesterday, but I still showed up because someone needed to mind the store (see my entry in my LiveJournal) while some renovations were made. And I haven't really had a "day off" per se because when I'm not working I'm doing the DJ thing.

Oh yeah, I was making a point. The point was that I know how you feel. Totally. :)

Feel better. There are others that are on the same boat as you. Here's a get well rose for you. :)
