Ugggh, called in sick to work. Not even working from home, but sick. Stupid death blarg. I slept for almost 12 hours, which slightly alarmed the RealHusband.
I HAVE to go into work tomorrow, as I’m running a meeting. I would like to be over this chest-rattling cough and the exhaustion NOW, please and thank you.
This coughing-and-feeling-dizzy-afterwards thing is tedious. I would like it to stop now.
Tired. Coughing that is accompanied by a rather astonishing rattling feeling in my chest. Woozy. THIS IS NOT WHAT I HAD PLANNED FOR THE WEEKEND, DAMMIT. Hey, let’s see if I can write while on cold meds! That’ll be fun.
Today’s question: is this coughing/congestion/fatigue due to really bad allergies, or have I picked up a bug? Please let it be the former. Please.
Things I want right now, in no particular order:
Hi, did I mention that migraines (especially ones that span multiple days) make your Auntie Jilli craaaaaanky and whiiiiiiiny? They do.
Ugh, horrible sinus migraine. Not how I wanted to spend my last day of Vampire Ball vacation!
Migraine! Brain feeling like it was wrapped in Jello-soaked cotton batting! Exhausted! Yeah, there will be no Goth at the Office photo today, peeps. Send tea, cupcakes, and a trepanation kit.
Because I’m working from home, loopy from pain meds, and waiting to hear back from the chiropractor because it’s become obvious that something is out in my lower back AND my neck. On the plus side, this means I can have movies on in the background while I’m working, and Ruthven is taking his snuggly cat duties very seriously right now.
nudiemuse replied to you:Meds stat. Do you have imitrex or something similar?
Oh. That’s why I feel so wretched. It’s not just feeling tired, it’s that a migraine is creeping up on me.
Fresh pot of tea? Check. Clovis Devilbunny by my side? Check. A version of “Dracula” in the DVD player? Check. Vols. 1-5 of the original Gothic + Lolita Bible nearby for idle paging through for eye candy purposes? Check. Migraine or cramps lessening? HA, IF ONLY.
“Give these poor wretches some laudanum, to calm their shattered nerves!” - what one of the asylum attendants just said on screen. YES.
Ugh. Staying home unwell for the second day in a row. Send tea, heating pads, cupcakes, and laudanum, please.
