I've been having health issues. It started with this... cold? Flu? Whatever it is that I caught back in December. Fever, headache, COUGHING, pretty standard stuff. The first two -- the fever and the headache -- went away in a few days.
The coughing and the phlegm did not.
They stayed, and so did the stamina reduction that comes with pretty much every kind of illness. Here's the part that really sucks: they're STILL HERE. It's been three months, and I'm not feeling any better. If anything, I'm on a downward slope. Appetite's been kind of spotty the last few months, but I track calories and have managed to make myself eat as much as I normally had. Last few days, though? It's evolved from 'spotty' to 'persistent problem.'
I work from home and make just enough money to get by. That means no health insurance, and not enough $$$ to see a doctor just to make sure this isn't something supah serious. (So please don't tell me to go see a doctor.)
I'm not quite... worried. I'm just really annoyed, and feeling a little suffocated, emotionally speaking.
So many artistic things I want to do, but just can't. My body's been demanding lots and lots of sleep. I work, I take care of stuff around the house, and exercise when I am able. Then it's all zzzz.
We'll see how I fare in a few days. If my appetite improves on its own, I'll draw something to celebrate.
That would be a very good sign. The picture probably won't be anything remarkable; I kind of have forgotten how to draw, and I'm not in any position to spend lots of time polishing out every detail. But it will be better than nothing, yes?
