I've been sick for about 3 weeks. Not anything too bad, but energy-sucking nonetheless. It's been cold-type body aches, chest tightness, coughing, can't get to seep, etc. and I've had enough of it.
I would prefer the types of colds I got as a kid. The ones where you're really sick for 3-5 days, you take those days off, lay in bed, eat some soup, then you feel better. Not this really mild, but horribly exhausting blah that I've been getting the last few years.
Also, I have a new twitch in my left eye, which seems to have developed along with pretty bad light sensitivity and dryness.
It turns out that my suspected dislocated rib/sternum, was in fact 2 dislocated ribs at the sternum. They have since gone back in, and popped back out, and gone back in again. The shoulder twitching is not getting better, and my joints seem to be getting looser and looser.
I've been dislocating both shoulders every night while I'm asleep, along with my left collar bone, ribs at my sternum, and at my spine, both hips, jaw... There is no position I can sleep in without dislocating something. I've been piling my bed with pillows, and comforters, and blankets, and nothing seems to help. Even going to bed heavily medicated doesn't do it. It feels like so many things would be so much better if I could just sleep.
I spent my entire allotment of spoons this weekend on making stew and cleaning the dishes. The rest of the time I spent flopping around like a fish out of water trying to get comfortable, and snoozing on and off.
It's time to start mattress shopping. I need to go lay on about 100 different mattresses for a bit to see if aything is comfortable.
