Bedridden

My body is going on strike.

My back is feeling much better. I went to the chiropractor and she adjusted me and I've been good as new ever since.

It's just too bad that the mild cold I've had all week has gotten worse. How does one survive an entire Canadian winter without getting sick once and then as soon as the weather gets better, comes down with a wicked cold??? This time I'm blaming my fertile bf's son who slobbered all over me last week. Apparently her husband has been off all last week with the same cold, seems like I got the same bug (and so does Mr. JB, he sounds much worse than I do!). I knew that I was done for when I fell asleep for four hours last night on the couch and then I couldn't get up for yoga this morning. I never miss Saturday morning yoga, especially when my favourite teacher is conducting the class.

Anyhow, looks like Mr. JB and I are going to take it easy this weekend. We don't have a choice! The only thing that I'm going to do is get my hair cut at my hair stylist's new salon. It will be quite the drive, but it's always worth it. If I wasn't feeling so sick I'd convince Mr. JB to go on an adventure, but that's not going to happen.

In cycle news, AF is almost done. I've been waking up with headaches since I started the F.emara. It's the only side effect that I've noticed and the headache usually goes away with some A.dvil. I'm hoping that tripling the dose will finally boost my estrogen levels. Honestly, what is up with my low estrogen? My progesterone is fine, which is good, right? I always thought that the two were related.

I need to drag myself off the couch so I can finish my laundry. Being sick sucks.

  1. Oh man, that stinks! I hope you feel better soon. Maybe you can cozy up with some fun movies for the weekend and drink lots of warm tea. We all made it through the winter without getting sick too, and I was thrilled, and then last week the whole family came down with the flu...in the beautiful springtime! Go figure! Somehow it seems like a bigger injustice to be sick when it is beautiful outside. :( Prayers for a quick recovery for you.

  4. Sorry you are having hormone headaches...they stink! I've had them A LOT and I have no advice. Nothing helps except a lot of advil, like you said, and sometimes I would combine motrin with a decongestant. Weird, but it worked. Sorry you're dealing with these and I hope you feel better :)

  5. Ugh, colds suck - hope you get your energy back soon. Have fun at the hair salon - it's always a pick-me-up, eh? I totally know what you mean about knowing you're sick when you miss your favourite yoga class (with the really good instructor!) There's one instructor that I go to pretty religiously.

  6. So sorry. For us, summer colds are the worst. Praying that your new haircut brings you some joy even though you are feeling low! Hope the headaches go away soon!
