So, it has been a few days since my last posting, and you might have been wondering why.
Maybe it was because I was out enjoying the city as much as possible?
Maybe it was because I was busy at work, and doing lots of things?
I have, pretty much, been immobile these last few days.
Thursday I stayed home from work. I woke up, and was taking a shower, and realized that I could barely do that. How was I going to handle working 9-5 if I couldn't even take a shower? After debating with myself about going to work or not, I called my supervisor, left a message, and went back to bed. I didn't sleep though, because I was so worried that I would forget to call my supervisor back to make sure she got the message. It was a little bit after 9, when I got a call from her! She wanted me to get better, and told me to call her if I needed anything. After that I was able to fall back asleep. Although it was far from restfull, as I would wake up in coughing fits. My entire day was spent in bed, although I did move past soup for lunch, and instead had Spaghetti O's! I would have rather not eaten anything, but the lovely diabetes prevented that, with low blood sugars that kept poking their noses in. Thankfully I had plenty of Yogurts, Puddings, and Applesauces around which were easy on the throat.
Thursday was also a online conference with fellow members of Students With Diabetes. Many SWD interns were "virtually" present, along with a few people who were starting chapters at their local college. I felt empowered even more so, to start and continue the Students with Diabetes program at my University!
On Friday, I woke up, and went through the go to work debate again. This time though, I did end up going to work. I'm not sure how productive I was at work, but at least I was there, and I was able to compose and send out the tweets for the day!
When I got home from work though, I was ready for a nap. After my nap, I continued watching a T.V. series I had started the night before: Downton Abbey. It was sooo good, and by Saturday, I had watched all the episodes. Now I have to find a new series to get addicted to!
My roommate was visiting a cousin for the weekend, so I was left home alone, which is probably a good thing. I was not good company, with the hacking and nose blowing. I spent Saturday sleeping and watching T.V. I kept fighting with myself, saying I should get up, go out, see the world, but I couldn't even make myself get of my PJ's.
Saturday Night, I did hear a knock on my door, and after making myself presentable, I answered, and there were some guys, whom I've never met, asking if I wanted to hang out. They were knocking on all the doors of the apartment building. Of course, the weekend when I don't feel good, and my roommate is out of town, people want to hang out!
Sunday was a bit better, for I did take a shower, and changed outta PJ's. I even ventured out into the real world to restock my groceries, but that was almost to much energy exerted. I was back in my bed for a nap after I got back and washed the dishes.
I also made a phone call home to chat up with my lovely Father. That was enjoyable, although he kept trying to make me jealous of all the country things I was missing. Sweat Corn, Peas, Apples, Baby Bunnies, Kittys, blueberries, etc! He was trying to make it so that I never want to leave home again!!!
My blood sugar numbers were very forgiving during this spout of illness. Nothing to outrageous! A little lower actually then normal.
