Happy f'ing New Year everyone.
Yesterday night I was feeling quite weird and was not at all happy - my entire body was hyper-sensitive, it ached and even though my heartbeat was normal, I could feel it pulsing through my entire body. Not in a good way. It felt like my heart was pounding, but when I put my hand on my chest it was obviously not. I felt like I wanted to rip my skin off. It was like the sensitivity dial on all of my nerves had been kicked up to around 100x their normal level. Not sure what that's all about.
I was also, of course, suffering from a headache, sore throat, etc. etc. etc. I was also very dizzy - every time I stood I needed to hold on to something to keep from falling back over. That combined with the fact that anything touching me hurt meant that I spent a lot of time lying down and wanting to kill myself, alternated with bouts of getting up and stumbling around like a drunkard. Yay. I had an awesome New Years, people.
Anyhoo. I'm going to try to go back to bed now. I'm not feeling quite as crappy - only very slightly dizzy, and my nerves have gone back to normalish levels, leaving me merely tired and with a headache and sore throat and some mild body aches, which isn't too bad. I'm still quite grumpy, though, as my vacation continues to get worse, day by day. I'm starting to seriously wish I hadn't taken the days off, I'd probably have had a better time (and less exposure to the kids means there's a chance I wouldn't have gotten sick). So, yeah. Happy New Year. Bah.
