I stayed in bed most of yesterday. I woke up with a terrible cough and headache. I was even experiencing body aches. I felt like I was coming down with a summer cold. I felt awful. By the end of the day, I was feeling some better. Hopefully, I will be feeling much better today. Have a lot I need to get done. All in all, it will probably be a busy week. There is just too much to do to be sick.
I had the worst fucking Sunday. I had a migraine all day long. At times it would get better, but not completely go away. At other times it was just excruciating. I stayed nauseated almost all day long. In other words, I was miserable. I didn’t want to watch TV, and I couldn’t read. My eyes have a hard time focusing when I have a headache like this. Now it’s Monday, and I have to go to work. Where did my weekend go? Sorry for the complaining, but sometimes you just have to let it all out.
I was a bit lazy most of the weekend. I did a little house cleaning, but should have done more. I did go to an art opening Friday night which was fun. Some of the art was quite beautiful. I also did a little networking for museum jobs.
This week will probably be a doozy like last week. It’s the first week for our new director. I have a dentist appointment this afternoon that I’m not looking forward to. I really hate going to the dentist. Then on Wednesday, I have my yearly evaluation, with our old interim director. There is no reason to be dreading this but I am. I never much liked our interim director and he always treats me like a third wheel. Hopefully, it will all go smoothly, and like the dentist today, I can cross that off my list of things to dread.
I was sick yesterday and forgot to write a post for today.
Thank goodness it’s Friday. The end of the week is finally here. It’s been a busy and tiring week. I’ve completed this week’s coursework for my two classes. I just have to do some commenting on other people’s work, and then I will be finished. I really only have one more week in each class and then the final project in my museum studies class. These two classes have taken up much of my week. I’ll have to buckle down and do some real work tomorrow. I’ve got several things I need to get done, because next week, I will be in Boston. Tuesday through Thursday, I will be conducting my final oral histories. Then, that part of the project will be over with. There is still a lot left to do though. Will I get it all done before my time is up? I doubt it, but I will actually do my best. So tomorrow there is some paperwork to be done and then I have to pack my equipment and get it ready to go. I won’t actually be back in the office until next Friday. Monday is a holiday for us, one of the few that we actually get besides Thanksgiving and Christmas. Anyway, after work tomorrow, I have to go to the doctor for my check-up. I’m not thrilled about going. He’s going to tell me things I already know and say that I need to do better. The good thing is that I am going to ask him about the new migraine prevention medication that has come out. I’d like to see if it could prevent my migraines. Tomorrow is going to be busy.
I had a bad headache yesterday. Hopefully, it will be better today, since I have an interview today. I hate having headaches. I had to go home from work early yesterday. Hopefully, today is a better day and my interview goes well. Wish me luck.
I have a bit of a cold, so I went to bed early last night.
Yesterday, I had another one of my headaches. It lasted all day long and into the night. I just hope I wake up this morning without it.
UPDATE: I’m feeling better today. The headache is still there but not as bad as yesterday.
Sometimes I’m grouchy, sometimes I’m sad, and sometimes I cry. All those things are because I am clinically depressed. I take medicine for it and on most days it helps. However, when tragedy strikes, even the medicine doesn’t help. I cried myself to sleep Tuesday night and cried again Wednesday morning. A good friend of mine, whose suffered from a debilitating disease for years, passed away. He had been there for me in one of my darkest hours and done so much to help me. He was a wonderful man: selfless, loving, and kind. I’ve only ever known one person to be as selflessly generous as he was, and she is a wonderful friend and I don’t know what I’d do without her. I will miss my friend who passed and my thoughts are with his friends and loved ones.
I’m heading back to work today. I kind of have to. We get three days before we need a doctor’s excuse. Since my doctor’s office suggested I not come in unless my symptoms became more severe, I do not have a doctor’s written excuse. Luckily, I am feeling much better. I’m no longer coughing, and I don’t have a headache. Most of my congestion is also gone. So there is no reason for me not to return to work. The only problem is that we have a nor’easter hitting tomorrow, and I wish I didn’t have to get out in it. Oh well, it’s not predicted to hit central Vermont very hard, so I hope it won’t be much of anything.
