Day off

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.

Feel better soon, Nadja. My edge of the country just warmed up today, after so many days of rain and wind. It's the first really nice spring day here.

You're making me chuckle a little about Facebook. I joined because our class is having our upcoming HS reunion (June), so everyone has been reuniting there, with a group page for our class. For the most part, I think Facebook is a goofy, fun way to just interact, and it appeals to my childish--- or warped?--- sense of humor. But if you want more serious pursuits, you can join their Networked Blogs and REALLY get your blog out to people. Come check out my homepage and I can talk you through it (just got Weebs through. It's relatively easy.) Let me know when you're feeling better. In the meantime, rest and "to thine own self be true..."

Thanks Jen. I will try to take you up on that once I feel better. Right now my brain feels dumb and heavy.
