Pungent Paper ?

Monday, March 26, 2007
The new medication has kicked my ass. Since early Friday morning, a mere two hours or so after taking the first dose, I’ve spent the weekend wobbling (literally) back and forth – nausea caused by dizziness, feeling dehydrated and having to “skip to the loo” about once an hour. This morning is better but not by much. Work was out of the question on Friday and today I probably should have stayed home as well but considering how much time I’ve taken off as sick days this year so far (is it still only March?), I figured I should try to suck it up. My weekend was not made any better by the fact that I was in a lot of pain for most of it. To top it all off, I’ve developed a sharp pain the lower part of my right breast. Great. I used to joke that you fall apart when you hit thirty. Apparently I was a few years off – everything goes to hell when you turn 34. I thought this was supposed to be a better year for me? I was going to finally do a bit of traveling, cross a bunch of things off of my “To Do” list and take care of myself. Taking care of myself has resulted in feeling worse! And at this rate, I’m not going to be boarding a plane to head to Calgary let alone any exotic overseas destinations. Enough griping…it’s not helping.

The Oilers, as we all know, are out of the playoffs. Surprise. Calgary is in the final playoff spot in the Western division by five points – hopefully they can maintain that lead, otherwise we’d be stuck with Colorado in their place. In the Eastern Conference, Vancouver’s got a playoff spot. Montreal is in a three way tie for the final spot with Carolina and the Islanders. While I’ve said I’d never cheer for them, I’m hoping Les Canadiens can pull it off. We need another Canadian team in there. Toronto is only 2 points behind but I have a feeling that’s where they’re going to stay. Mom will be severely disappointed.

According to Chinese researchers, Panda Poop is Perfect for Paper. And I thought I was the queen of Alliteration. Damn, they’ve bested me.

I've heard that elephant poo paper is pretty good too.

Things can go tits up at any age, it's how you deal with it that changes.

I hear you. I'm going through another medication tweak and it's rough. I hope you feel better soon.

Just starting to get back to blogging. I've basically caught up on your main page. I see I've missed a lot.

Kiddo, I'm so sorry - sometimes the "cure" is worse than the illness - it is extremely frustrating. (I secretly wonder if hubby just wishes I would die and get it over with, I've been such an invalid since I got here!) I hope you recuperate very soon - and I hope your desires to travel and enjoy not working for a non-sickness issue come true in the next few months and through the year!

I hope those meds start doing what they are supposed to do and leave you alone with the side effects.

Hey... hope you feel stronger, and that it doesn't get you down too much. Remember that you can accomplish anything and don't give up!
