Less dire, more sick [Sep. 9th, 2008|01:28 pm]

[Current Mood |lethargiclethargic]

Well, apparently the cure for "false dysentery" is to write about it on your live journal. The most dire of my symptoms waned shortly after my entry.

Instead, I am now in the "kitteny-weak" recovery cycle. Went to bed early, got up and got ready for court at 8:30. Quickly realized that I was wobbly, so parked as close to the courthouse as possible. Made my very brief appearance, walked one block to the library to drop off materials that were due, drove home.

Collapsed back into bed and slept until about 1:15. Got up to try and do some things, but now considering returning to bed with some tea and a book.

*hugs!* Poor thing. I'm worried I'm catching the bug that my coworker awesomely brought into work with her last week. Sigh!

Listen, I have a dear friend who's desperate to emigrate to the US, and he just wants to ask a few questions of someone in the know. Would you mind if I gave you his e-mail address?

Hurray! It's xavier at easylowdown dot com . His name is Xavier Ames.

And man, I also hope the sickness keeps at bay -- I wouldn't mind so much if I hadn't JUST decided, like, two days ago, that I'm going to do a crazy thing and drive down to SalonCon in New Jersey with a friend.

Nag accepted. I have eaten, that's not a problem. And I even grabbed one of those electrolyte water things at the little shop by the courthouse and gagged it down.

Thanks, Mom. ;-)

No, no - more electrolytes!!! One little bottle ain't gonna do it. Get a huge Smart Water.

I'm glad you're feeling better than yesterday, definitely do that bed and tea and book thing. I send good vibes, hugs and internet cookies your way. Also some puppy snuggles from Gracie. XD

Thanks. Back up after a number of hours of resting/reading/sleeping. Still wobbly, but better.

Am very sorry that you have had to deal with the incredible water spewing illness from hell, and am glad you are now on the upswing.

Electrolyte water *good*. Yummm....

Glad you're feeling better before you completely dehydrated and turned to dust! Dust bad. Pulling for your health - you haven't seen enough of it lately!

Thanks. Still wobbly, but upright for the time being. And yeah, I'm sick of this being sick business. Seriously.

How does the judge take to emergency recess for an urgent bathroom break?

Fortunately that was avoided. Not well, I'd say.
