I’ve been really symptomatic over the past couple of days. It’s been brewing for a few months, with the tiredness, the cough (I know it’s not supposed to be connected, but I always get a weird cough before a major flare up), the nausea, the losing the feeling in my legs after a single beer. Now I feel like a giant pillow. I think all my sensation is still there, there’s just the added feeling of cotton being stuffed under my skin, plus the feeling of being electrocuted whenever something touches me. Yeah, not too fond of wearing clothes these days.
And just because timing is everything, here are things that inconveniantly happened to be timed with the flare up:
– My drivers liscence medical (I refuse to own a car, but I keep my liscence anyway)
– Winter dance
– Bus strike
– Computer in for repairs.
Thankfully I can still walk (not very well, very quickly or very comfortably, but I can walk) so I’ve been able to make it to school, but when I’m not in class or at the library, I’m more or less housebound with no contact with the outside world.
At times like this, I really wonder about elderly people who never have mobility or the internet to compensate for the lonelyness of being housebound. I’m just about losing my mind.
I think picking last weekend to do gastronomy weekend was a good choice. It forced me to get off the couch, it made me do something creative and I got a number of good meals out of it.
But OMG I cannot wait to get my computer back.
