Good afternoon from sicky old England. My head is spinning, my husband’s head in spinning, and we’ve had to opt to keep our little girl in from school today. When you pick a kiddo up and they smell like vomit (even if you can’t see it anywhere), then it’s probably wisest to keep ’em in. And to be fair, she had vaccines on Monday, so we were warned to expect her feeling poorly. Calling in to school, the ladies there confirm there’s a bug or two going around, and chicken pox too. All the fun of being a child, eh? At least I can hope she only gets chicken pox once — I had it twice as a kid, myself.
We’re all in fairly good spirits though, which is worth celebrating. I’m enjoying the view here at my mother-in-law’s house (now with added sun), and am even feeling tentatively human enough to pop on a messenger and catch up with a friend. If I manage to keep feeling human enough to deal with people, I might even pop into Lord of the Rings Online later to check in again with the kinship I’m in. We will see — as I’ve said before and will keep saying to myself, one tiny wobbling step at a time. I don’t want to undo my progress! And, if I need a reminder to not overdo it, I just have to remind myself that I can barely hold my brain together to half-assedly read everyone elses’ blogs right now; if I cannot manage to drop comments, then I’m probably not ready to go socialize with a group textually.
And, of course — thanks to all of you sending good thoughts and whatnot. It is appreciated. 🙂 I continue to be optimistic that maybe the antidepressant is going to do some good in stabilizing me out. As for the dizzy… hopefully that’ll pass once I’m out and away from the rapeseed fields, hee hee. It sure might be pretty, but my head seems to hate it quite a bit. Or it could be whatever germs Typhoid Child brought home from school. Ah well, at least feeing physically ill is a great distraction from the brain? /brightside
I hope that everyone out there is having a good day.
