I have a 6 month dental check up tomorrow so am busy saving up for it. Well, in fact, NOT busy at all as I am saving up energy. Or trying to not overspend on what little energy I have right now.
I spent a long weekend fighting off (or more relaxing my way out of) a looming migraine. Trying to head off that peculiar feeling I get when a full blown migraine is on it’s way. The drugs helped a little.
I’m also walking a knife edge with my bowels (“oh no – not more about her bowels again …”) and various aches, pains and odd numbing sensations in my limbs. Nothing new then :o)
Although the symptoms aren’t new I have felt kind of … odd these past 5 or so days. It’s hard to describe but I sort of feel like I should be more capable, like I am more well than I am. When I try to do a little more my head starts to pound or my stomach starts to bubble and I realise I am not as well as I thought.
I am wondering if it’s the D-Ribose. At rest I feel lighter, like I have a tiny bit more energy than I am used to at this level of unwellness. I kind of have a false reading – or at least everything looks (feels) slightly different to what i am used to.
Anyway – here I am resting and not doing things in order to be able to make my dentist check up and hygeinist appointment tomorrow. With another 3-4 days or recovering from the outing no doubt. It’s not much of a reward when I am feeling a bit stir crazy. When I am craving fresh air and green landscape. When I am frankly fed up and a feeling a bit sorry for myself.
I have a long list of things I want to do and could do to distract myself and to cheer myself up. But I’m not able to do them. It doesn’t take much to bring back that pounding in my head and neck.
So I sit here quietly. Surf a little and without any aim. Find telly and DVD’s I can watch without taxing my brain or making me feel stressed or anxious (and that I can follow with a mildly fogged up brain). Pout every now and again. Try to think positive. Try not to think about the what news my dentist may have about the state of my teeth this time around.
I wish I could write succinct posts like this.
