so, I’m lying in bed….

Matt’s asleep next to me. I went to the doctor yesterday and was prescribed antibiotics, something for my cough, and steroids for the inflammation in my lungs. I’ve taken so many pills today, it’s outrageous. I still have two steroid pills left to take before I go to sleep, and I’m not exactly sure when that will be since (oddly) I’m not terribly tired and the pharmacist warned me yesterday that they might make it hard to sleep. Curses. I’m off tomorrow and Saturday, though, and plan to stay in bed watching chick flicks all day unless I start feeling better. At least I can breathe now, though I think all the meds might be weakening my acid reflux pills because it doesn’t really feel like I took them today. But I did. Ugh, I don’t like taking all this medicine. I guess it’s better than staying sick though.

We went to McKay’s before dinner tonight so that I could buy the BBC Jane Eyre (with Timothy Dalton… the only version to watch, really). Also found a box set of Poirot movies to add to my collection. I’m so glad Matt likes Poirot, because he’s really the shit. Next to Holmes, of course. I also ended up getting an Italo Calvino book… my friend Billy (who, I think, goes by Bill now) recommended Invisible Cities but they only had one of his books. It looked interesting and was only $4 so I went ahead and got it.

I’m so glad I have the next two days off. Work has been such a chore since I can’t breathe. I have to walk around at a snail’s pace just so that I don’t get too winded and have to pause for a couple of minutes just to cough and get my breath back. No fun. Everyone’s been understanding and okay with me spending as much time as possible in the office. I’ve done a lot of laminating over the last couple of days….

I tried watching a movie on Hulu, but it wasn’t streaming fast enough. I’m guessing everyone else is on Hulu. Then I tried watching some stuff on, but even that was moving too slowly. Whoever isn’t on hulu is on adultswim. I guess. So I might put on the Simpsons when I’m done with this, since season 20 is conveniently located next to the bed (albeit on Matt’s side, so I might have to do some climbing). Oh, to be healthy again….

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.
