Yesterday, I just stayed in bed. I rescheduled my ENT appt. I just could not go. I had a horrible, horrible, horrible headache. The only thing that helped was to sleep. I woke up when it was dark outside. It had rained pretty much all day yesterday. I knew a storm was coming because I could feel it. I call myself a walking barometer. Forget weather forecasters, I am my own weather forecaster. LOL

Now its almost 5 am and I would like to go back to sleep but can't. I took my sleep aids at 10 pm last night and here I am.
This illness just sucks. I would like to be a somewhat normal 36 yr old who goes to bed at the right time, so I can enjoy my days and not have them all messed up to where I sleep during the day and am up all night. Sigh.

Been staying in other then having to go get my prescriptions. I usually go at night since my Walgreens is open 24 hrs. :) Yesterday it was 100 out and it is again today. I can't wait till September so it will start cooling off. Southern Az is horrible with the heat during the summer months. lol ((( hugs )))

I feel so old

I am only 39, I keep reminding myself of that. My body and brain say I am 90. I am striving to be better. I want to do what my other 30 and 40 something friends do. Instead, I am on the sofa today, the two days before that I was stuck in my…
