You can measure human misery.
Current Mood: sick sick
So far, mine's cost me ~300. What with the not going to work, the doctor, the medicine...

And I *still* don't feel good. I left you with my last post on the 16th...

Which brings me to a footnote. Check out the comments to that entry! I've never gotten randomly trolled before. I pondered deleting them, but didn't. I did however turn IP tracking back on. :) In an ironic sort of way, I got these entries in the middle of my raging sickness and I was just like, 'Come on now, the entire world?'

Hrm. Bri did well on her placement tests, is now in school. I can help her with her math homework. Yay! Her parents still are giving her flack for everything from needing money for books, to the amount of money for books, to the fact that she doesn't have a checking account...They're so damned unhelpful sometimes. They'll send boxes of Christmas gifts, but not....yargh! It's so stupid. They won't even try and do as she asks and then get annoyed at her when she tells them things didn't go as they wanted them to because they didn't!

Oh, by and by. My bank's policy on not accepting signed over checks? RAR. I need to find the two tellers who've been very helpful and did it anyways and know their hours by heart. Bri needs to get this stupid piece of paper notarized (who on earth ever came up with such an inane process) and the bank managers are notaries, but I'm afraid they'll be stupid about this too as about everything else.

So. On Wednesday morning, I go home from work an hour early because I felt really...sore. All over body aches. Thought I was catching something but figured I'd shake it off by Saturday, I mean, 3 days is enough time for bed rest and good food and whatnot to shake things off, right? Wrong. I think sometime Thursday the diarrhea struck...And here we are now, and I'm still diuretic (sp?). The past few days have been horrible. I usually get sicksick about once a year. Last year it was similar to this, but it wasn't nearly as bad. I think. I finally figured out that the reason I was dry heaving had nothing to do with illness, in a manner of speaking. It had to do with gas. I was trying to equal out gassy bits. It's been a roller coaster the past day or so because I'll be better for a bit, then I'll get worse, then better...I'm afraid even now, my relatively good feeling will melt away. Bri's been awfully nice to me though. She's done everything of her I've asked. Mostly. ;) (For example: She did *not* carve out my intestines with a sharp knife. Sad, but true!)

Of course, I've been absent from around, and to anyone whose missed me, I apologize. (I hope your granddaughter feels better Tina!) Oh. I forgot to mention, we're back down to one computer. Bri's Mac fried itself. It made a noise like a bug on one of those bug lamps...and...gone. Which sucks.

And currently, my body is reminding me why it lately has been in control, which means I need to abscond for a second.

An interesting point of thought: Why is it we tend to think of ourselves as separate from our bodies? Like two separate entities. At least, I do.

"I think we were looking blindly for something that was wroth of all that searching; something, finally, that deserved to be sought out and that at the moment of death would allow us to say, that's what I lived for."

"If he'd been my kid, I would have whacked him, too. Because he's nuts." --Ozzy, talking about M. Jackson.

"I'm in show business. I look at my boobs like they're show horses, or show dogs. You have to keep them groomed." -- Dolly Parton.

"Pre 1989, I pretty much fucked everybody. I had to get breakfast somehow." -- Courtney Love.


You are one of the few out there whose wings are
truly ANGELIC. Selfless, powerful, and
divine, you are one blessed with a certain
cosmic grace. You are unequalled in
peacefulness, love, and beauty. As a Being of
Light your wings are massive and a soft white
or silver. Countless feathers grace them and
radiate the light within you for all the world
to see. You are a defender, protector, and
caretaker. Comforter of the weak and forgiver
of the wrong, chances are you are taken
advantage of once in awhile, maybe quite often.
But your innocence and wisdom sees the good in
everyone and so this mistreatment does not make
you colder. Merciful to the extreme, you will
try to help misguided souls find themselves and
peace. However not all Angelics allow
themselves to be gotten the better of - the
Seraphim for example will be driven to fighting
for the sake of Justice and protection of those
less powerful. Congratulations - and don't ever
change - the world needs more people like you.

Interesting note about feeling separate from the body - I always feel that way too, like it's a tool or an extension of something else.

Albeit a fickle, easily-broken tool :)

A tool. That's a good way to think of it. Tool like. Hrm.

Sheree again. :)

Poor sicky boy! Glad I didn't call and bother you this weekend after all. I spent most of it sick in bed too. As did the hubby. The baby boyo was well and spent the weekend trying to make his poor parents play. Needless to say, he watched a lot of videos.

Congratz to Bri :) She'll do great in math then. I only passed Calc due to late night tutoring via Tower.

Perhaps it's one of those Is the Soul separate from the body issues? You - your soul - is only occupying the body before you go on to the afterlife? I dunno. I think of my body separately too, the old worn-down piece of junk, but I don't know why. :)

Be a good boy and mind the body.

There's a notary public at IPFW, second floor of the classroom-medical building. I can't remember her name.

I hope you feel better asap!

As for the person who left the charming note for you, I second whomever said "What an asshat!" (I must know you from somewhere!)

helloooooo! darling :) I hope you feel better soon. Really I do, cause then I can see you more often, you lucky sod you. lol.. .. hmm.. sometimes, I think an illness like that is a wake up call from your (seperate from you) body.. telling you that "hellooo! I need some bed rest, please please please?" .. the more you abuse it, mr Jeff, the more it'll complain and take on those nasty little viruses that you want to avoid. I feel like such a mom. shoot me now, please.
That anonymous poster on your other journal entry had me laughing up a storm. wow.. rotfl
