Driving when the world is surreal is definitely an experience.

It's surprisingly difficult to focus on driving and my surroundings in that state. Music helped.

But I'm home safe. And i don't think it's actually as cold out as i think (having had the heat blasting the entire way home), which between surreal and that make me suspect fever.

I don't know why it is that i want all the cuddles when I'm sick, but boy do i want all the people right now. All of them. Cuddle pile required! Stat!

Soon i will muster the energy to go in the house. My car's steering wheel should not be this comfortable. And probably isn't actually.

I would very much like to stop being sick, please. This month, why so much sick?

So surreal

And, we're at the point in being sick where I'm pretty sure I'm actually dreaming or at least reality isn't doing a very good job.

Not allowed to make decisions. Probably shouldn't drive, either, but that's much harder to avoid. We'll see how much of this week makes it to long term memory in a form that makes sense and i can access later.

Plus side? Only a degree warmer than usual. So probably not surreality due to fever.

Now I feed kitties and go to bed.

In unrelated news, have a photo of our back yard. Things are definitely starting to melt, at least compared to what was almost the highest the snow has been

Sleeping until 4p and only getting up because [livejournal.com profile] metahacker waited until i did. Also, holy congestion, Batman!

wispfox: (Default)
For the first time in my adult life, ear infection.

This makes sleep a problem, as well as making hiccuping, coughing, sneezing, and anything else which might affect the pressure in my ears unexpectedly painful.

Started being painful mid-Saturday.

Today, got a script for antibiotics, instructions for use of ibuprofin to potentially help it pass on its own, and will use the antibiotics only if that doesn't work in a couple of days. Also, heat (which I was already doing).

So, quite tired.

On the plus side, the doctor I talked to suggests that maybe I would benefit from the use of Advair (I think? I may be remembering wrong) to help reduce the congestion that I always have in the winter. That would be nice...

I don't think this is just because of season or boredom with excess amounts of coding at my volunteer job, but damned if I know what it _is_.

Awake is hard. I'm doing it, and I'm at school, but want to sleep or at least doze. And drink lots of water.

*grumble*

Gotta say, though, Saturday's party was delightful. :)

Yay, not sick. And hey, a reset on how much food I eat isn't all bad, either.

Unfortunately, winter decided to remind me that hey, I am still seasonally depressed, even if it is mostly under control. Similarly unfortunately, I have still not found a useful replacement for the uppers source that was World of Warcraft for me for years. I am displeased that this appears to translate to trying to find tasty things to put into my mouth, even if I am not hungry. Need WoW replacement!

School back in session. Did not make short list for PhD program at Brandeis, which means that I shall need to find a job in the psych research field for a year when I finish my masters, then figure out where I can and should apply to. On the plus side, if I manage to find a job in the field, I will have more flexibility to handle the possibility that the places I wish to apply to are not at the time accepting PhD students. Also, the possibility that where I do find to apply does not accept me.

Even so, though. Tired of applying. Tired of having to figure out what I'm doing every damn year, and applying to schools every year.

Less down than I was, though, thanks to time with [livejournal.com profile] metahacker tonight.

Yeah, I knew you were lurking, but busy with school then stupid cold masked it.

But, y'know, when I find myself dissatisfied and cranky with all of my options, and don't want to go to bed even though i'm tired, it really make me wonder.

And between school & research project & proposal for said project & needing to apply for next year & daily house stuff (and thankfully not food prep for at school, thank you [livejournal.com profile] galaneia!), i'm using a lot of willpower regularly. So my normal sweets cravings are truly absurd, and things that I would normally say are too sweet are still tasty, i'm having a lot of trouble with wanting to eat the everything that is sweet. Constantly. I'll try my seasonal dark chocolate in the morning & hope it helps, because very few sweets are low Cal foods, since most are not just sweet. So I get to need willpower when trying to help my willpower and other brain sugar things. Joy.

But I must try to sleep, much as that, too is a donwanna.

Mrr.

Yes, I've been busy, so only sorta noticed you creeping in. Between getting a nasty mostly gone cold that left me wiped out, and crazy school, I had excuses for it.

 

But, well, when everything that I can think of to do is boring, that's a good sign. So is the fact that I have basically no self control in my cravings for sweets and even things I would normally say are too sweet seem appetizing. I suspect combination of low blood sugar from school and needing to make sure I get things done plus that sugar is my major food craving even when willpower isn't routinely being used for school and normal life stuff.

 

But weight gain, la.

 

And I don't want to go to bed even though I'm quite tired.

 

Mrr.

 

And I need to reapply for next year and do my research proposal on too of classes and gathering data. Whine, i'm totally doing what I want and it's haaaaard!

 

Grumble. Now to try to sleep.

All but one application done, the remaining one being rolling admissions.

House closing was yesterday, house is now ours.

And so, people to call, many things to do.

Last night, ended up coming home around 5p and passing out until midnight, when I got up to get a small snack and pills. And then passing out again until around 6. Slept a little bit more, and got up at 8. I'm going to say I'm sick, since there's still lingering exhaustion behind the "omg, stop lying in bed!" that my body is doing.

So, going to go to CVS, get scripts filled, and probably sleep more. Sigh. Also, my head hurts.

And also, HOUSE!

Through much conversation with [livejournal.com profile] metahacker wherein, among other things, it was determined that I needed a different type of interaction than typical for when in distress, I am significantly less down than earlier. Also, not sick. I didn't actually realize how sick I was.

Fwiw. Now, sleep.

Sick?

Ok, whoever ordered me a sore throat, a headache, and a cough, the timing could be better!

Yay, party. Even though I was sick and very nearly didn't make it (did make it thanks to being utterly _bored_ of sleeping, a sweetie who came and picked me up, and people including said sweetie missing me at the party).

Definitely need to manage to go to one of [livejournal.com profile] majes parties again when I'm _not_ sick, and stay as late as that. I think I may have stayed that late once or twice before. Maybe.

Much cuddly goodness, much hotness, some bits of kissing here and there (trying to not spread plague!). Lots of nifty people.

Now, to get _not sick_ already. At least being sick did not make time with [livejournal.com profile] metahacker entirely spent trying to make me less miserable. There were lots of good points _around_ the miserable!

Stupid sick. Hopefully it's not a flu.

On the plus side, dayquil - and therefore probably nyquil - helped. Generic, but whatever.

Wow, my parsing of things I'm reading/writing is fascinating. We'll see if I manage to work tomorrow...

Still sick. Less sick. At work today, hopefully will manage to be useful. We will see if I last a whole day or not.

Slept for crap, but considering how much I'd slept the previous two days, I still feel pretty ok, considering. (not being able to breathe makes my body refuse to let me sleep)

Passed in my homework a couple of days ago, since I knew I would not be functional any time before it was due and it was close enough anyway.

So my class is largely finished!

*sneezy*

I _really_ should not have tried to work any day last week. Heh.

Last week really does feel like I dreamed it, which is problematic, since it means that I don't really remember what I was doing/supposed to be doing for work. Thankfully I'd gotten ahead with class, so it didn't suffer much.

Heh. There has been an awful lot of 'what was I _thinking_' this week. :)

wispfox: (exhausted)
Or perhaps I just forget how often I get sick in winter...

In either case, I would really like the constant headache, exhaustion, variable nausea, being _COLD, and achiness to _STOP_. I'll try going into work tomorrow, but if the latter half of last week, the past weekend, and today are any indication, I'm going to be falling over from exhaustion and unable to read anything a few hours in. Which sucks at work, where there is nowhere to nap.

Made for many surreal conversations this weekend. And impressive difficulties following conversations.

I'm having a hell of a time deciding if the break that I am about to take because I'm exhausted would be better spent napping or going outside in the sun for a brief walk. The latter will help season stuff, but bed sounds _SO_ nice right now.

At least I have this Friday off. And even through absurd exhaustion, I did have a good weekend (even if I think I confused everyone who is not familiar with me and being sick). Much approval of squishings. And sweeties. And [livejournal.com profile] starandreas. Who my brain thinks fits into sweeties, even though that usually only includes people I'm dating. Confused brain.

Can't decide if aspirin actually helps my head or not, but of the things I've tried, I think it is most likely to help. (I should actually ever remember to check my temp, although right now I bet it's normal)

No. Attention. Span.

And I _can_ (somewhat) force alertness. Sorta. But it costs.

Ok, I go for a walk to the Library, and then I see about a nap. And whether or not my body is willing to let me feed it. (right now, food is actively unpleasant to contemplate)

Ok, no. I really should not be dumb and try to go into work. I've only been up for 2 hours, and remaining up is complex and makes my head hurt. Meh.
