Let’s Get Healthy: Day Thirty-eight (AKA Thank Cthulhu for Flo-Nase) #romancefit
Time on Treadmill: 30 minutes.
Temptation to blow it all off and stay in bed: Immense.
Things came to a head today when I seriously just wanted to stay in bed and die, I felt so crappy. With me, allergies don’t just mean aching sinuses and lots of mucus going down my throat — it also hits my joints, and man, today was a seriously bad pain day.
But I don’t have time for that because I have things to do, tra la, so I went out and got a bottle of Flo-Nase (which I’d run out of a few days ago, bad Nicola, no new laptop) and popped one of my few, treasured Prednisone pills. Can’t take it all the time because it’s horribly corrosive, but I have a prescription that I can dole out if and when I really, really need it.
Today, I really, really needed it. A half hour later I felt moderately human again and was able to get stuff done in the garage (making some pendants for my family) and knock out time with Chuck. Hopefully it’ll last long enough to let me get some decent sleep tonight, because I could definitely use it.
