Sick And Tired

I am still a bit sick, my left calf muscle continues to be tight for no good reason, and I woke up this morning after only five hours of rest and just couldn’t get back to sleep. Grr!

I am definitely one of those people who get a few days into an illness and quickly grow tired of the entire affair. I’m not suggesting that anyone actually likes being sick; I just get impatient with it faster than most, I think. I want so desperately to be well!

The achy muscle has me thrown off too. I still have no idea how I got it and my assumption that it would work itself out right away has obviously been disproved. On the positive side, it is not bothering me enough during the course of the day to amount to more than a small annoyance and exercising has required only minor modification to compensate for the tightness.

But now, on top that, I can’t get back to sleep! Argh! I generally go to bed quite late, but my life still allows for an average of eight hours of rest every day. I know many people work off of a lot less time in bed, and I was one of them until my scheduled changed, but this is how it has been for a couple of years now and it can really throw a wrench into my day when my sleep pattern is disrupted. I feel sluggish and like I am not operating at my best when I wake up like this.

I also doubt that being tired all day is very conducive to getter either my cold symptoms or my tense calf to improve. In fact, I am pretty sure that any temporary moodiness that my unrest creates will only serve to magnify my impairments in my mind. Sigh. Maybe I will try one last time to get just a little more shut-eye…

  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry you aren't feeling good... I totally understand tho, I'm right there with ya!

    Good for you getting your 8 hours' sleep every night... seriously, that's AWESOME! It's my goal, too... doesn't always work, but I try.

    Anyway, feel better SUPER soon... Vitamin C, lots of water, extra rest and Immune Tabs (found at local health store, MIRACLE DRUGS!!!). *Hugs*

  3. I too get tired of being sick. You will start feeling better soon. I hate it when I can't sleep - it is so frustrating!

    Take care of yourself!

  4. Damn I wish I could remember my high school Spanish better, lol. I only recognized like 6 words in that guy's comment, lol. Feel better soon! :)

  5. Know what you mean about the impatience thing, it gets so annoying to be unable to do the things you want and need to do.

  6. Is your calf warm? Maybe you might need to get it checked. It could possibly be a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). Keep an eye on it. I hope you start to feel better soon!!!

  8. I have a doctor's appointment on Monday so if my calf is still bothering me then I will mention it to my doc.

    Jose, I am so sorry but I don't know any Spanish. I used an online translator and understand a little of what you said. Thank you for following!

  9. Hey lady,

    I know you will reach your goal! I had the same problem last week. Me and my daughters had the stomach flu. The baby was even hospitalized for dehydration. Talk about drama. But I pushed through and still managed to lose one pound that week.I have lost a great deal of weight over the past year I went from 201 to 155. Come on over to my blog and I'll share with you how I lost all that weight.

  10. Are you resting? Or, are you out and about? Playing mother here - if you rest really well, the illness will get better sooner! :) You need my famous chicken soup - Mother Nature's natural antibiotic, and super low calorie!

  11. Wow, Mandy, I hope your baby (and the rest of your family) is all better now!

    Dawne, you caught me... I wasn't out and about, but I certainly wasn't resting! (Hangs head in shame - lol!)
