It’s 10pm Friday night and it feels like midnight Sunday after being awake all weekend. I’ve been so sick this week. I lost all my enthusiasm to write. Monday brought dizziness, woozy head, racing heart, heaviness in my limbs so dire I stumbled a few times as my brain thought it was coping with a huge extra weight.
It was almost unbearable. Tuesday I was ok, I worked a little from home. Wednesday I broke out in hives! All over my body. They were unbelievably itchy and lasted all day Thursday. But finally something worked. I took 3 different antihistamines before one worked, including the awful Phernergan. Avoid at all costs! I slept so heavily all night with nightmares of not being able to wake up. My daughter crawled into bed at some point and I was unable to speak (luckily she didn’t care). Awful! And it didn’t work. Zyrtec did the trick. And I can’t tell you how good it felt when I am already taking 15 supplements a day (2xiron/B12, 1xmagnesium, 3xliver enzymes, 4xechinacea Royale and 5xvitamin d) to add another tablet that damn well had an effect! In the evening I also added 2 anti inflammatory’s because the hives on my wrist were causing swelling and threatening carpal tunnel pain.
So today started at 7:30 and I worked 7 hours, drove for an hour and a half and dealt with a non-sleeping child up until 20 minutes ago. And now it’s bed time. My only hope is that this is not all worse tomorrow but somehow I think it will be.
