It's good I took the day off. I have done a lot of sleeping. I did take my streoids and ate but then I went back to bed. I had hoped to do more fun stuff but I guess rest is what is in the cards for today. My spirits are still good but I must admit that I took a break none too soon. I am feeling pretty awful but it's hard to describe. My head is really hurting and I feel kind of nauseated. My senses are feeling rather overwhelmed. It's like something is pressing on my temples and something hot is dripping down the back of my neck. I hope I have a high enough dose of steroids to make me feel better. I only have a 60mg taper of prednisone. The first time I got sick I started at 500mg and the second time I started at 75mg but until today, I have only felt a little bit sick and strange. Now I feel worse.
It's snowing and sloppy out so I figure I should just take the meds I have on hand and hope for the best. I'm still hoping to be better before Monday and to do a fun thing or two before now and then but I am also content to lay low if I must. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my discomfort will be short lived and I'll be back to creative writing before the weekend ends. I also hope the weather clears so I can go buy new watercolors. I did a cool painting last weekend but I ran out of good watercolors and now I have nothing to paint with. Luckily, I still have ideas so as soon as I have the right tools I can continue. Now I'm back to resting, reading and staying warm. Tonight I'm thankful that I can curl up and relax.
