last few days...

Okay, so last week... everyone I knew was coughing and sick.

So, now that they are all better, I have it.

Tuesday night I tossed and turned in my sleep and woke up constantly due to restless dreaming attached to it.

Wednsday night it continued.

Thursday night I just couldn't sleep. I was INSTRUCTED to go to bed. That it would be better for me. In the end I laid in bed for close to 2 hours with no benefit. So, I decided to get up and do something that would put me to sleep. I paced around to look for such a thing. I decided to watch Return of the King, Extended cut. I remembered the theatre version was long and slowly paced... so I figured it would be perfect for putting me to sleep.

Nope. I was wide awake the whole time. Plus, something was happening to my right ear. I was slowly losing my hearing in it. So, planing for the worst I took some meds... Well, the meds don't help for built up pressure, and by the end of the movie I was in intense pain from my right ear. It had filled with liquid for some god awful reason and it was friggen painful.

At this point I gave up an went back to bed. Where, sadly I started coughing and not being able to find a comfortable position with my painful ear. This wakes Kristen early and she is angry with me, and tells me I should go sleep upstairs. I inform her that I have already spent all night upstairs. She backs off a little... but I still have a difficult time with the pain... she realizes I'm in more pain than she originally thought... and deals with me, plus her alarm goes off... so she gets out of bed anyway.

It took me about a half hour after she got out of bed to find the perfect spot to lay and stay in while the bed was fully mine. I managed to sleep from around 6am-11am... I don't expect anymore sleep.

I woke up because I felt a slight pop in my ear. I check it and it was draining, but not as much as I hoped. So, my ear is still muffeled right now... not as much pressure or pain... but its annoying.

stupid being sick.
