|09:45 am - Nothing to see here, really.|
It's funny, but I've never felt so sick and had nothing wrong with me.
I've been nauseous since the end of the weekend, and had to force myself to eat. I don't particularly like the taste of food right now; it's all fairly bland and painful to think about, even. I've also been staying up way too late cuddled in a blanket, checking email at odd hours of the night and watching The Legend of Zelda in between checks.
I still kinda shake every so often, kinda like I'm suddenly cold, even though the weather is beautiful. Other times, I shake like I have no control over my body. I can't even type most things correctly: I've been in conversations over IM recently that have been so full of the wrong words, weird typos, and the occasional freudian slip that I know I'm not actually thinking clearly about most things (thought there's one thing I know I'm clear on).
It's an interesting experience, to view the way my body reacts at the moment. I've found a couple ways to put off the symptoms, but none last very long. Rational thought, at the moment, is doing the worst, I think because rational thought doesn't really work for this. Forgetting about things only works for about 10 minutes, and then I'm right back to it. Staying physically busy works to some extent, but the moment I stop, I'm back to the nausea and the shakes.
Yeah, it's obvious I'm worried about something, but what exactly it is doesn't belong in my journal right now.
This weekend is Trillium, and I admit, I'm a bit worried about how that will go. I leave tomorrow for that long-ass drive to the middle of nowhere Virginia. I'll have a lot of time to think, which can sometimes be dangerous. It's a good festival, though, and there will be people there that I really want to see and hang out with. I wish I had the gumption to go through the Buffett Ritual stuff, but I haven't, not really, though I've been working on the music. It helps to sing certain songs.
But, I'm willing to experience this, willing to take it. For as long as it takes.
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder
Current Mood: curious
Current Music: "Distantly in Love", -JB
In regards to Trillium, since you spoke of it, is it possible to register for one day at the door? I'm actually going to be in Norfolk, VA on Friday and might be able to make it with a bit of planning on Saturday.
According to the front page of their website
Saturday (Daytime) Adults $20
So I'd guess "yes".
I'm sorry you're feeling less than mediocre. I guess it'd be greedy of me to say that I hope I do get a chance to see you at Trillium tomorrow if nothing else. And as always, if you just need some random stranger to hang out with, you're welcome at my camp.
And of course, you're welcome with us, as well :)
You'll see me. I have a lot of people to see :)
Just... breathe. I am so proud of you.
I'm trying. Believe me, I'm trying.
And thanks, babe. You picked a good time to be able to show up in my IM window. Means a lot to me.
worry and stress can kill ya, be careful.
Hopefully the weekend will help.
The weekend can't hurt, but there's only one thing that can help, honestly.
Given all the sex I've been having with latexpussy
, I'm probably having her love child.
Don't worry, I'm not sick. I know the root cause of it.
And I'll have something to trade for that bottle. Never fear. It's coming home with me :)
*hugs* I hope everything works out.
One way or another, it will. :) No worries.
Man, "no worries" is wonderfully easy to say. . .

Damn, I was hoping there might be an opportunity to chat in Columbus this weekend.

Re: Trillium huh?
Yeah, I'm afraid I've been called away to sing some Jimmy Buffett tunes in a ritual context.
They totally don't know what they're getting into.
It will all work out.
What doesn't kill you and all that...
isn't trying hard enough?
I hope things improve soon. It's good to know what physical stress reactions you're prone to, helps identify problems when your conscious mind is ignoring them.
*nods* I'm very interested in my body's reaction to various things. It does help one identify and act on issues.
that sounds like the flu we had a couple of weeks ago. :(
Trust me, it's not the flu.
Sitting far away here in Vermont I can only speculate, but know that I am thinking about you. And the fact that you say "But, I'm willing to experience this, willing to take it. For as long as it takes." says a lot. I hope it works out well for you, suffering will make the reward that much better.
I know, and thanks.
I have a strange habit of actually *enjoying* suffering.
Strange how that seems lost today. This is downright painful :)
All will be well, no matter what.
The drive will be brilliant fun, because I'll be there.
Randomly, any chance I can convince you that a side trip to Ohio Savings Bank is a good plan?
Find out where the nearest one is. Preferably in an easternly direction
Yikes, didn't get a chance to check LJ until now. Hope you're doing better and are able to enjoy the festival.
I did enjoy :)
The ailment isn't physical, it's emotional. Distraction helped, and so did some very, very good friends.
