Little by little
Monday. 6.17.13 6:13 pm
I feel slightly better today than I did yesterday and tomorrow I will probably feel slightly better than I do today. The wonderful part of getting better is that, although the cold can come on in a matter of hours, the healing part takes so much time. I can at least walk at a somewhat normal pace again without hacking up a lung. And I can go an hour or more without having to blow my nose so that's a plus.
My running shoes have arrived so I will be picking them up after work tomorrow. I'll be putting gas in my car while I'm up there since the Safeway gas station isn't too far away.
Since I'm budgeting my money to save up as much as I can for my trip in December, I think I may try to budget some movie money in with the next paycheck. I want to go see Man of Steel, but movies are expensive so I'll have to plan carefully. Perhaps maybe a matinee showing one day ... however, I'm sure the movie will be a lot more awesome if it's in IMAX 3D. We'll see what happens.
This is the third or fourth time in the last week or so where rain was in the forecast and it has been bright and sunny. I'm not complaining too much, but it would be nice if it actually rained a little. It's been rather dry these last couple weeks so some moisture in the air would be nice. There's rain forecast for tomorrow and Wednesday so I'll see if it's truth or just horrible forecasting.
I need to fix something to eat.
Until tomorrow. . .
*sniffle* *cough* Ugh

I'm so ready to be over this cold. I'm blowing my nose far less often now, but I'm still congested. At least when I sound sick, people tend to leave me alone about not working up to par.
I haven't started 12th of Never yet. For some reason, I feel like I have to be better in order to fully enjoy the book. I don't want to have to put the book down every few chapters to blow my nose. Hopefully by this weekend I'll be able to get the book started.
**Warning: brief amount of girly talk ... will commence regular blogging momentarily**
With this IUD, my periods will slowly get lighter and lighter, but there will be a lot of spotting in the first few months. I'ts been a little over 48 hours since I've had it inserted and what normally would be my period right now, there seems to be only light spotting. I know for a fact that I'm not pregnant. For one thing, you have to get some in order for that to even be a possibility and it's been a while. Second, the pee test came back negative so I know that the lack of menstrual fluid exiting my body is not due to pregnancy. Maybe my cycles are always this light and because I use tampons, I wouldn't notice the difference? Either way, I think it's kind of awesome.
**End of girly talk. Regular blogging will commence**
The first official day of Summer is later this week and it sort of feels like it's summer here. The temps have been in the mid 70s the last few days. It's rather breezy today, though, so it's not too warm in my room. I haven't even had to turn the fan on yet. I did yesterday, though. The sun was just a tad too warm for me not to. Tomorrow there's supposed to be some kind of front moving through that will bring some late Spring sprinkles. The last few times rain has been forecast, nothing has happened other than clouds so I'm hoping for some actual precipitation this time.
My reordered running shoes should be arriving at the store sometime tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be early enough that I can go get them after work. I won't be running until probably Friday. There's no need in making myself more sick by exerting too much energy that I don't have.
Alright, I should probably take a shower before it gets too late. I don't want to go to bed with my hair too wet and taking a shower this late in the evening is pushing it. I also want to play some more Jetpack Joyride. It's a free game on Android that's incredibly addicting ... when you have someone to compete against. Or if you like playing games that seem to have no end. I'm fairly certain the goal is simply to get as far as you can without dying. Sure, there are mini missions that you get and there are a lot of in-game accessories, but I think the reason I'm stuck on playing it so much is because I want to make sure I keep ahead of a coworker of mine. He likes to gloat and this is my chance to rub it back in his face. It's all in good fun.
Yeah, I think this is long enough.
Until tomorrow. . .

I missed yesterday, but I have a reason. No, I wasn't out the whole day, but if you're squeamish about girly stuff, this is your forewarning to stop reading now.
I had my doctor appointment yesterday to have an IUD insertion. The warnings said that there would be some cramping and discomfort, but nothing too bad. It wasn't that bad, but it certainly was more than just some cramping and discomfort. Getting a pap smear is uncomfortable enough, but that only involves your vaginal cavity. An IUD is placed at the top of your uterus.
My doctor told me that if I had had a baby in the past, the procedure would not be as bad because my cervix would have already been dilated at one point thus causing it to be more flexible, but since I have yet to experience that step in my life, she had to manually dilate my cervix in order to get the syringe in place to insert the IUD. . . Imagine your worse menstrual cramps, then multiply them by like, 10. I'm glad this is something I don't have to deal with for another 5 years, which is how long the IUD is good for.
I'm back to regular, easier to deal with cramps, but yesterday was mostly spent laying down trying to find a comfortable position. Lunch with my friend was canceled. She said she had to work overtime. It may be just the paranoia in me, but I kind of feel like she's avoiding seeing me. She still talks to me, but this isn't the first time lunch has been canceled in the last few months and the other times I've brought it up, the text was either never answered or the subject was changed. Like I said, I'm probably just being paranoid, but I miss seeing her.
Anywho, I digress. Once my body adjusts to the new hormones, my periods will most likely stop altogether. There will be some spotting the first few months during the adjustment, but after that the spotting will be minimal. I'm looking forward to not having to spend money on tampons or anything of the such.
So yeah, that's why I missed writing an entry yesterday. I wasn't even thinking about eating or watching TV shows or reading or anything besides trying to get comfortable. I'm glad the worst of it was only a day. I should be able to keep up with my daily entries now.
Until tomorrow. . .
It's not Friday
Thursday. 6.13.13 7:42 pm
The fact that I was out of work sick the last two days probably had something to do with today not feeling like my Friday. It's also a shame that it isn't actually Friday because then it would be Friday the 13th. We have to wait until September before that happens.
I woke up this morning actually able to breathe through my nose. It didn't take long for it to get stopped up, but it was a nice change after the last few days. No one complained about me not doing my job, but that's probably because I didn't spend all my time in the office so it had the appearance of me actually working. Not that anyone would complain. A couple people asked why I hadn't taken today off as well and I told them that I would if I could have.
I took a nap when I got home from work, but woke up feeling like I was choking again. It's not fun when you're awake. It's worse when you wake up that way. After I downed a bunch of water to suppress the coughing, I decided that I should probably get up for a while. I have done nothing since.
I have a doctor appointment tomorrow then a late lunch with my friend from up north, but other than that and laundry on Saturday, I have no plans other than to rest up. Hopefully taking a couple doses of Tylenol tonight and sleeping in tomorrow will help make me feel better. I'm hoping to be better by Sunday. Being sick in general sucks, but being sick at work is even worse.
Not sure what I'm going to do for the rest of the evening, but I'll figure something out.
Until tomorrow. . .

Is it when your taste buds are all of out whack because you can't smell anything the indication that you've reached the peak of a cold? I hope so because I can't smell anything, all foods taste incredibly bland and my head still hurts from the sinus pressure. I don't feel any worse than I did yesterday, but I certainly don't feel any better.
I called off work again today, but I will be going back tomorrow. I have run out of accrued sick time so I can't afford to take an unpaid day off. It's only just the one day and then I have my weekend, but still. The 8 hours I'll be there will be rough. I clearly look the part so it's not like they can dispute the fact.
I finished watching the first two seasons of Sherlock. The third season won't be airing until sometime the very end of the year or the beginning of next year so I now have to find something else to invest in. Unlike with The Walking Dead, where I'm just waiting for Netflix to add season 3, since season 4 will be starting up soon, I know that there's currently no other available episodes of Sherlock so patience won't be as hard to come by.
Anywho, my thought processes are still running through a fog so I'm going to end here. Hopefully work tomorrow won't be the death of me.
Until then. . .

Anyone that argues that sick brain isn't a thing either has an immaculate immune system that keeps them from ever getting sick or they're delusional.
I called off from work today and I'm considering doing so again for tomorrow, just to give myself that extra day to recuperate. I hate calling off from work, but I don't want anyone else to get this head cold. Waiting an extra day to go back to work might mean that I won't be contagious by then.
Depending on how I feel later tonight will be the deciding factor. I feel okay for now; still coughing, sniffling and the sinus headache just won't subside, but if I start to feel shitty before I even go to bed, then I know it'll be worse in the morning. If I still am feeling halfway okay in the next 5-6 hours, then I'll go to work.
I wasn't able to get to sleep until around 4 this morning. The single dose of Tylenol did nothing in the way of helping me sleep. If anything, it just made it that much harder to breathe. I slept off and on for maybe 2 or 3 hours then gave up and got up.
I took a decongestant and after about an hour, I was able to breathe enough to take a 3 hour nap that finally made me feel like I had gotten some rest. I may or may not take another nap sometime here soon. I guess it depends on how I feel. I'll be taking another dose of the decongestant in about an hour.
Alright, I hope I feel better enough to go to work tomorrow, but we'll see what happens.
Until tomorrow. . .
