The Ongoing Adventures of Naked Girl

The story of my quest to look good naked -- really good.

Thursday, February 19, 2004

Now I know why I've been feeling so cruddy -- I have bronchitis. Even with this diagnosis, I was happy that my doctor noticed my weight loss and my good blood pressure. I also got a call from my new doctor who got my blood work back and everything is normal, but he wants to work on my thyroid -- exactly what I've been saying! Anyway, I have two inhalers to help me breathe, and they seem to be working. I'm still feeling fatigued and I tend to wheeze when I breathe. I did get the rest of the day off, and an excuse for tomorrow. The thing that has me a little ticked off is that I know how I got this -- one of the girls (the one who called me La Gorda) has been sick for the last month, and she didn't want to take any time off. In the end, about 7 or 8 people have gotten sick, and I really believe it's because of her not taking any time off when she was ill. What is it about these people who are so self-absorbed? She didn't want to take time off, so those of us who did get sick had to? I mean, I could have gone against doctor's orders and gotten everyone else sick. The sad thing is, several people have complained about this girl -- she seems to always come in sick, but use her sick days for car problems. So instead of her using her sick days, the 8 of us have to use ours. It just doesn't seem fair.

So what am I going to do? I can't go to the gym, although maybe the steam room might be good. Daytime T.V. sucks. OK, I admit to watching "The Young and the Restless" (Don got me hooked), but there really isn't that much on. I'm trying to read, but I just don't seem to have the concentration. I'd like to try and clean, but I'm not that inspired. I'm not one for naps, no matter how badly I slept the night before. Don will be home most of the day Friday, all day Saturday and working Sunday. I don't even have the energy to make candles or soaps (plus I have a ton of made projects just waiting for me to give them away!).

I guess the good news in all of this is that I am not hungry -- nothing tastes good. About the only thing that feels good is warm liquid (soup, tera, Cream of Wheat) or fizzy drinks (club soda). I might even drop a few more pounds between now and next Wed. I really didn't want to get on the scale at the doctor's office, but it showed a loss from last week, and a big loss since the last time I was in her office. I actually have hope that between my exercise, foods and (hopefully) my new thyroid treatment will help me get over this hump.

Sorry for the meandering blog today, but I just can't seem to think straight.
