I’ve been having a tough week, health-wise (see Monday’s missing post as an example), but I figured I could leave you with a short bit of dark humor
1. I think my head might explode: I have the headache from hell, and since it’s in my neck too, I’m having a hard time convincing my anxiety that it’s not meningitis. Also, my cat Spike is a mother hen when I don’t feel good. It’s sweet, except that he’s 18 pounds and he insists on constantly touching my face.
2. I keep falling asleep: And not just in inappropriate ways like when I’m laying down. Sitting up is fair game too. You know the warning they put on NyQuil about not operating heavy machinery? I need that on me.
3. The world is spinning: Since I started physical therapy a few weeks ago, my POTS has been in a consistent flare. It’s depressing that 7 minutes of laying down exercise can affect me this badly. I’m eating tons of salt, like the experts recommend, but my I can’t really feel my face anymore…
4. My hands are shaking: Another POTS symptom, it’s because my blood sugar is all over the place. My body goes into full-on trembling shaky sweaty rebellion if I don’t eat exactly every 3 hours. I never thought my pancreas could hold me hostage, but here we are. Who knows, maybe next week my spleen will demand $10000 in unmarked bills.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your bodies feel better than mine.
