IS THERE EVER A GOOD TIME.....

......TO GET SICK


For me it is usually after Christmas that I crash and burn. Wednesday night I was laying on the sofa in my office watching TV, I had gotten up to take my evening medications and then I fell asleep until about midnight which is when I woke up chilled to the bone. 

Just so you know I have always been a hot blooded person and add menopause to that....well you get the picture. I'm the person who sleeps in shortie pajamas and barely with a sheet on all year round. For the last several months I have been chilly wearing socks and sweaters around the house everyday. So not me! 

So I went to bed with my robe and socks on, covers pulled up over my head and I think I shivered for close to 45 minutes. I think if Mark would have been home I would have had him take me to the emergency room. I could not get warm. I didn't want to get out of bed to turn the heat up but finally I did and I grabbed the heating pad as well.

I did finally stop shivering and fell asleep only to be woken up several times with nausea. I used my trusty Emetrol for nausea which definitely helped. So on Thursday I was exhausted and slept all day. Never once turned on my computer or barely got off the sofa. Every single bone in my body ached and they still do today. I did manage to sit in our jet tub which helped. I am not nauseous today but I haven't got an ounce of energy and to make matters worse I have to go out today! 

If I don't get the 25 out of town gift cards purchased today they will not go out in the mail on Monday. Sure I could wait until Saturday or Sunday but that would be a nightmare with the crowds. Today is definitely the better day. I am happy to report that I got all the shopping done online for our Christmas here at home and just finished up with the dogs too! 

I have decided to take this weekend off and will be back here on Monday. I will get caught up with all of you as soon as I can. Have a lovely weekend.
