Sad AND sick!!! Wheeee!!!! [May. 26th, 2004|06:44 pm]
[Current Mood |sicksick]

Thank you to everyone who sent me good wishes and love when I wrote about depression yesterday. I wish I had the energy to respond to them as they deserve, but I want you to know that they are deeply appreciated.

Today was not really better, but the symptoms started manifesting into something genuinely physical, so part of it may be that I am getting sick - which would be about right, considering how the body seems to "give in" to crud once you get through the stress. I spent most of the work day in a clammy sweat, my scalp soaked, and shaking so hard that people noticed. I was sort of dazed and my vision was a bit blurry. Oh and periods of dizzyness and nausea.

So it was obviously a fun day at the office. Nevertheless I stuck it out and we finished the stuff that needed to be done. Now I am waiting for Ferrett to reappear with dinner and we are settling in to watch Return of the King.

I hope I get over this, physically and emotionally, soon.

Take care.

Hopefully seeing pervlicious (I 'made' up a word - if you want, see my journal for more info) Aragorn will cure you. *flippant comment over, no offense meant*

--fellow Viggo fan.

salamtik, dear.
back in cairo, we use this herb called marmeyya. one of it's claims is a cure for illness brought about by stress... so women use it a lot, although not during pregnancy.
it smells quite fresh and warm like eucalyptus and hibiscus all together.
it works very well. if there is an arabic food store, maybe you can ask them for marmeyya leaves.

i hope you make yourself well. truly and deeply.

I'm just getting back into the swing of reading journal entries, so I didn't get a chance to read yesterday's post. Still, I sincerely hope that it gets better for you. Feel free to e-mail and we can shoot the shit. *hugs*

I hope you get better soon.

For me, it's always a "chicken or the egg" paradox. I don't know if I'm sick because I'm depressed, or the other way 'round. They seem to feed on each other.

I usually use garlic capsules when I feel an illness coming on, lots and lots of them.

(I probably won't see ROTK until November or December when the uber DVD version is released.. I somehow managed to miss it when it went through the theaters. Maybe I'll see if it's still playing at the el cheapo theaters this weekend.)

Not...see...in theatres?! I underwent a personal crisis because I couldn't see it on opening night!


My depression bounce-back is usually quicker than this, so I'm not sure, either. I am upright, and at work, but still very shaky and feeling yucky. As horrible as I felt by the end of the evening last night, I'm kind of amazed to find myself here at all this morning.

I *hate* working when I'm sick. But sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do. And sometimes it's amazing what you cna push yourself to do.

And it looks like ROTK is still playing. Hopefully it will still be there this weekend. And then I'll make my husband take me. :) That way, at least I'll have seen it on a big screen.
