What is wrong with me???

I’m emotionally raw. Hurt by the events this past weekend. Hurt because last night was nice. Friendly, fun, and EXACTLY what I would have liked to see when I was with him. So he’s capable. He just chose not to. And that hurts. Because I miss him, I care about him. I don’t want to be treated badly, I want to be treated well, and he did that last night. If he could do that consistently in a relationship, I’d want to be with him. As he was, NO. But that way? Yes. And that hurts that he doesn’t seem to care about me. At all. So I feel used. I’m so confused. I need a distraction. A longer term distraction. Sigh.

So I hurt.

And now I’m sick. Great. AGAIN. This is nuts!

Neti Pot

So I promised a friend I’d go to the doctor. My cough has been horrible. And what did I find out? It’s to do with my sinuses. Apparently there’s a correlation between what’s going on and my hand eczema. Environmental allergies or something like that.

Anyhow, rather than an inhaler I have a sinus spray — corticosteroid. Yippee. And this thing called a Neti Pot.  The one I have looks like a plastic tiny teapot and you shove the spout up your nose and let physiological saline drain through your sinuses — with your head tipped forward and to the side.

I’m not yet sold on it but it’s supposed to help. It doesn’t hurt, but it feels a little weird. And now my left side of my sinuses are clear. My right feels like I breathed in saltwater and I’m sneezing.  We’ll see. Perhaps that’s TMI for a blog read by friends and strangers alike, but there’s my update on this 3 week long cold. A crazy item called a Neti Pot, and still coughing. But for now I’m calling it a night.

This cold is like death…

Well, not literally perhaps, but UGH I feel horrible. I have no control over the regulation of my body temperature, everywhere hurts, I’m coughing up a lung, I can’t breath and I’m grumpy.

That’s my week. After an amazing weekend of dancing, Thanksgiving, Friends and Family, this week has been a complete washout. Nothing’s been wrong other than being sick, but it makes me feel so completely horrible that I’m seriously grumpy. What I really want: a hot toddy and a back massage. Not necessarily in that order.

This weekend I will be spending it asleep, just as I’m doing for much of today. Blech.

That’s in my head. It hurts like you would not believe and it’s making me feel ill.  I’ve called my chiropractor. But I think it’s mostly life’s tension catching up to me.

I’ve called in sick. Thank goodness for sick benefits.

For now I’m going to sleep until I get a call back.
