happy birthday, [ profile] kalikanzeros!
If I worked from home everyday, I think I'd have the weirdest eating schedule of anybody. I've already got a pretty weird schedule - breakfast around 7, lunch at 11, snack at 3, dinner at 6:15. Which written down doesn't look weird, i guess, but when I'm strolling into the kitchen to get lunch at 11 am, people often think I'm a little early. But hey - works for me!

I haven't had much of an appetite with my illness, and making food I want to eat has been more work than I wanted to do. But yesterday I ended up with a major low blood sugar headache at the end of the day, so I'm trying to be more attentive to that today.

On the way home from dropping Liam off at daycare, I got a craving for pasta. I could have held off for lunch, and had a bowl of cereal or something when I got home, but why? At first I was thinking spaghetti with garlic sauteed in olive oil and fresh parmesan. But then I remembered the goat cheese ravioli that have been languishing in the freezer since last summer's trip to Columbus. So I put some water on to boil, and pulled out a few of those. One of the reasons they've been languishing is that it's hard to figure out what to put on goat cheese ravioli. I figured i'd just drizzle with olive oil, and then I remembered the bit of fresh rosemary left from my chocolate experiments. So I heated up the oil with the rosemary and a strip of lemon zest, then drizzled that over my ravioli when it was done.

But not in a good way.

I've decided I'm in a rebound cycle with my decongestants. I get congested, and use something, either a pill or a nasal spray. And I'm fine that day, and the next day, even though I didn't take anything. But then the day after that, I get congested again. Today is that day, and so I'm trying to break the cycle and not take anything at all. I used my sinus rinse kit this morning, and may use a saline spray in a little bit to loosen things up a bit, but mostly i'm just trying to suffer through in the hopes of breaking what looks like a cycle.

I may also be rebounding from my pain killers, so I've stopped the 600 mg of Ibuprofen too. I took a single Tylenol earlier to try to help with the headache (which is probably from the congestion above).

And I woke up at 4 am this morning. Nappage, definitely planning nappage.
Even though I woke up at 4, I was feeling pretty good this morning. A little congested, maybe, but not feeling too bad. As the morning went on I got tired and needed to rest, so I took a nap.

Well, I woke up from the nap an hour ago, and man do I feel like crap. Woke up - as I usually do - with a little bit of a drowning sensation in my lung. But now it's the headache that's really kicking my ass. Which is mostly likely caused by the nose and sinus crap which is also annoying me. Oh, and did a I mention the gooey eyes? And I know that a Drixoral would make me right as rain, but that's probably what got me into this mess in the first place. Sucks sucks sucks.

I wonder if I'm well enough yet to go see a massage therapist? They could probably do some ju-ju to my head to help open up sinus passages and encourage drainage without drugs.

Head hurts. Took another Tylenol. Ate lunch in case it was blood sugar, now I just feel sick to my stomache and have a headache.

I hate myself.
