day 2242 – toppled over

i felt exactly like the cupcake today – toppled over and dysfunctional. i was hoping to go to open gym tonight because i had the day off tomorrow, but i was in no shape or form to do so. during parts of the day, i took some tylenol to alleviate whatever was making me feel sick and pukey. even took a lengthy nap expecting to wake up with some improvement. it’s definitely a write off kind of day

day 2189 – fainty

been a while since i had it so bad. so bad that i left work early and took a nap in my car before i knew i was in condition to be behind the wheel. the fact that i nearly fainted was the reason i skipped out on flipping today and headed home. i was pretty sad but it left me with no choice but to crawl into bed. i hope to feel better tomorrow because i still got work to do, workout to crush and softball to play

day 1650 – free boosters

img_20200203_1344311257006167595410142.jpgfree booster juice for the design team courtesy of manager who won the super bowl trivia. i’ll gladly take the strawberry storm smoothie over my lunch because i had a major toothache from the mini surgery. it hurt so much to eat i don’t even have much of an appetite anyways. i was told i looked sick and i certainly felt unwell since it kept me up all night. if i can’t catch some sleep again, i might have to pop some tylenols or go back to my dentist. i’m not a happy camper at the moment

day 1316 – rest and roll

img_20200204_1609055450160576472723783.jpgtook a full day off work and school to stay home and rest because my poor body is overstressed from all the strenuous events and travels. of course i should have dragged my butt into the clinic to get fixed because i can feel my kneecap not being in its place. being me, i once again postponed my physio appointment and instead stayed home to roll out some muscle tightness

day 945 – bed ridden

image

still trapped at home feeling unwell. instead of being my active self out there at gym and dodgeball, i spent way too much time on my bed. i am usually a trooper and will stop at very little; this just isn’t one of those times. i hate being sick because everything i need to do gets put to a halt and even backtracks. to look at things on the bright side, at this point last winter, i was already sick four times compared to this year’s first

day 944 – dinner in bed

image

pretty much in bed all day including eating dinner. for a second my taste buds had no idea what i was swallowing. the combination of a cold and whiplash neck pain kept me from all my activities. lying down, sleeping and taking drugs are the only things i can do at the moment. not the kind of rest days i had in mind but these are the only days i will get rest time because my body simply can’t do anything

day 920 – stomach upheaval

image

how a chinese new year feast can throw me off my game. i am feeling sick after eating this meal since my regular practice is not accustomed to the grease. i do not wish to eat another one of these meals for a while, my stomach prefers my meal prepping more than ever. i guess that’s why i’m a picky eater and all i’m saying is i choose my food carefully

day 808 – migraine season

image

trapped at home tonight because the migraine is really getting to me. been bothered by a wave of migraines recently certainly makes it a little concerning considering it’s gotten much better in the recent years. so had to opt out of going to gym and taekwondo, instead laid on the couch to watch the jays game and catch up on some drama. a disappointing game it was, hope tomorrow’s game will be better for the jays

day 483 – purple team

image

it’s game day for smd, but i am listed as game time decision. the past 48 hours has been very unproductive while i have been trapped at home battling a nasty cold. the amount of sleep i got during this span out numbers the amount i get on a normal week. i guess it’s a way for my body to tell me it’s exhausted and well overworked. still feeling crappy from the cold, not sure if i am in condition to be useful on the court

day 423 – getting checked

image

at the doctor because it still doesn’t seem right and would much prefer a scan but was told to keep taking tylenol and close tab. not quite sure why i require another week of monitoring when it’s already been two weeks of headache, dizziness, pressure, blackout, vomiting and floating feeling, but what can i do. normally don’t see my family doctor more than once a year, but have been twice in two weeks
