Hopefully today will be the last day of cross-posting, and tomorrow will see me resume normal operations… I hope. *chuckles*
See, I went on a course of antibiotics last Friday… the day after having to put myself to bed because of a world-spinning mega-headache of super doom. The combination has kind of left me… not good. *smiles wryly* I’ve not played a single computer game since sometime Thursday (horrors for me, horrors!), and I’ve not managed a lick of writing past the occasional tweet (a few seconds at the screen isn’t doing any real damage) or doing these daily apologetic quasi-entries (which have been pushing my limits, but I’m stubborn enough to stay on top of this personal continuing challenge to myself).
So anyways, combination of many little health things conspired to keep me down. I spent Friday afternoon in bed. I spent most of Saturday in bed. Sunday… I managed to keep myself up and going, if only just. I decided that if I couldn’t handle the shiny lights of idiot boxes, I’d hurt my eyes by cross-stitching instead; that kept me busy through Monday. Tuesday… I dragged myself over here to work, though I didn’t get anything done; I was still avoiding more than very very limited computer use. Heck, I even tried taking codeine to see if that would help the headaches (answer – no. Paste. *sneef*)
As for today? The headache is still here, but it’s vaguely tolerable. I’ve not taken anything for it yet, but I’m getting near that point as I sit here hacking away. After all, my body temp is still jagging all over the place (sigh), light is still bothering me some, but at least I’ve managed to do some work today, right? Plus, I have hopes that if I can shift the headache a tiny bit, I can do some writing tonight. There’s been two new contests posted on Figment in the past 24 hours (the time travel contest and the forgotten contest, and it would make me happy to complete entries for one or both tonight. I’ll have the house to myself for a few hours, and I really, really, really want to write or Sim or both like burning. *laughs*
For the exact second, I’m going to chug down another liter of water or so (I’ve had about 2/3 of one this morning, but that’s not enough *chuckles*), and go look at non-computery things for a bit to rest my eyes, maybe take something for my head. Tomorrow is the last day of antibiotics, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to take better stock of the head thing over the weekend. 🙂 I suspect I’m going to have to cut my hair (gulp!), and we’re going to potentially see about getting me into a chiropractor for some adjustments, and go from there. I’m hoping those two things will help swot the worst of these tensiony-migrainy things that I’ve mistaken for sinus problems, but if we don’t know something in the next week, I’ll go back to my doc and sheepishly admit he had a point, see what help he has on tap.
