How are you feeling today?

Recommended Posts

I surived another trip to the vets for the dog after a sneezing fit that led to some blood on my tiles.  The vet is trying another dose of antibiotics and presented me with a price list breakdown of what the next steps might be.  Explorations under anaesthetic of his nose. Possible removal of a back tooth where the gum looks slightly red and no guarantee that the exploration of the nose is not going to lead to surgery/costs if they find something.   Then there is the questioning myself.  How much is it fair to put him through?  He is an old boy now.  I have had him 10 years.  He was a rescue dog who they guessed was between 18 months and 3 years when I got him.  I am worried about him and my decisions on the best thing for him.  He is a huge part of this family and I want to do right by him.   

I hope you shake off your lurgy LittleMe.  Luckily mine only lasted 4 days and didn't reach your levels :( 

Complete derail.  When looking at the reactions on LittleMe's most recen't post  I see this..

When you hover over "0 others"  it says Pamela Galli.  Does this mean Pamela is a ghost?

I am so sorry, I have been there — I remember putting a trash can by the bed to spit in because swallowing was so painful. Last time it happened I dragged myself to the urgent care and got a shot of some kind and some very nice painkillers. 

The doctor did give me the good cough medicine - the stuff with codeine in it. Even though I woke up tons last night, it was still the best night of sleep that I've had in a week - almost no coughing, and I can actually swallow this morning without screaming or bursting into tears.

She also gave me some antibiotics, though she did say that there is a chance that it is viral rather than bacterial.  However, if it is bacterial, she said that I should be pretty much over it all by the end of the weekend.  I'm crossing my fingers.

I remember a sore throat that was so bad i had to spit instead of swallowing.  I can't imagine a worse pain.  Hang in there Jewell!

It's so hard for people to understand the kind of pain a person is in when all they see what is perceived as a healthy person, I've had people look at me and tell me "You don't look sick." or "you can't really be that sick, if you're here" I actually had a so called friend of mine, look me in the eyes and tell me "I don't believe you" when I was asked to go out for the evening. I think that hurt worse then the physical pain I have. Needless to say, we are no longer friends.

Today, I feel alone and vulnerable.

That is my experience too, e.g. I went into the office on a 'good' day to collect a few things after being given voluntary redundancy and some idiot whizzkid wannabe gave me a horrible sneer while in effect calling me a liar.

I'm sorry you're feeling alone and vulnerable; your feeling is accurate, and sometimes you can only suffer it until something better happens or you can distract yourself.

Sometimes I just wish some people could walk a mile in our shoes and if they did, I'm sure they wouldn't ever say another negative word.

Mentally today I'm in good place but physically I'm sore, I'm tired apart from all that I'm okay I guess despite being poorly. :/

”How are you feeling today?”
 

Well.... My monitor went kaput so I’ve been computer-less and unable to get online for the last few weeks. 😅 I’m shopping around for a new one but in the meantime I have kept myself busy doing other RL things I’ve been neglecting. 🙂

 

Only downside to this break is I have to neglect my wordpress site for a bit, but hopefully I can get back to it soon. Well, and I had about thirty boxes sitting in my inventory that I hadn’t unpacked yet before my monitor cropped out. 😬

 

Back to lurking. Hope you’re all having a great day. 🙂

I fell great today except my back what I pulled yesterday. But mentally I'm OK and maybe I'm in love???? Or how knows.

I’ve been down... way, way, way down. That big black hole of depression and sadness and that feeling of foreboding and dread.

Finally started to shake that and got sick. Really sick for a few days but much better now. I get nauseated after I eat. Blah.

BUT I had the best weekend I’ve had in a long time. I bought all new bedding (Pink!) and that was a lovely treat for myself, and I got to spend a lot of time with my fella in SL, and bought the new Teegle horse, and I have some amazing dark chocolate sent to me from that same fella, and now I’m winding down listening to some T-Swizzle before curling up in all my new bedding with my floofy-floofs and dreaming about a trip to the UK.

Let’s see if we can make this a good week, maybe? We all deserve to have a good week.

There's only one good thing about the month of February.

It's the shortest month of the year. 

Even if it does last for freaking ever.

The itchy feeling is back.  I guess the steroid treatment wore off and now I'm back to the original symptoms.  I hate being this neurotic!  Telling myself that the itchiness is all in my head is not working.image.png.31748a2ad2214f55212aed2f79a8d0ea.png

I am in shock finding myself living not under the rule of law for the first time in my life. I cannot shake the depression. All my life I’ve wondered how the German people let this happen to them. Now I know.

I'm not really in shock, being a pessimist as well as introverted and clinically depressed,  I sort of suspected the rules had been changing for some time....

But I'm right there with you with the "how could this have happened" feeling.

It's a global activity; that's my only political comment.  As for me, I'm having an erratic brain day.  A nosebleed told me to be careful, then I made stupid decisions throughout the day, interspersed with naps.  Really not that bad, and I made myself laugh with what I did.
