Okay, so you've read about the acute allergie 2 weeks ago, which was dreadfull, and the antihistamine gave me an almost just as worse effect, which should finally be leaving me systen now.
Then, last week, I got a virus that went for my throat and my nose. Now, alsmost a week later it has left me with a sore throat, eras that producs sounds like old radio noise and a running nose. So it's still not totally gone yet.
So what's new?
Well, I bumped my head. Or better said: I smashed my skull at topspeed agains a massive wooden corner of my makeuptable (see!? It's makeup related :P)
What happened? On tuesday I wanted to make sure our cats were upstairs before I went tout. So I checked under the bed and there they were(well Loki was anyway, Odin was sleeping in the bedroom already).
So, because I was in a hurry, I jumped up to go downstairs. Instead, I jumped with my body, but my head kept hanging on the underside/corner of my wooden makeup table my dad made me when I was a kid. (it's pretty close to the bed).
Tears sprang in my eyes, and I felt the worst pain EVER. Standing didn't really feel like a option either. But I had to a lot of stuff to do on my only day off, so I collected myself and went. Yeah I'm tough/stupid like that. Having had the two weeks(or summer) I was having, one more thing didn't really seem to matter anymore.
I had some trouble focusing on things and was really tired...and ofcourse had a splitting headache, but it went ok. Except washing my hair, which felt like someone was trying to pull out my hair.
Then on wednesday, I started feeling weird...but since I was having aftereffects of the anithistamine and the virus, I thought it wasn't really something new. In the evening I had a splitting headache again and I felt soooooo cold. But again, I had the cold thing with the virus aswell.
Yesterday(I'm writing this on the day it happened, thursday), I went to my other job, in Amsterdam. My job there involves a lot of bending and picking up things. Everytime I picked something up, my head started to pound. Also, my mind seemed to wonder all on it's own, concentrating took a lot of energy and even then, my mind slipped a few times. On the stairs(we have more then one), I even almost fell...backwards. Luckely I always hold the handle, otherwise, I might have fallen. Not a very entertaining idea. I started feeling worse. So I decided to go to the doc, right after work. For me, that meant like 1,5 hours later, since I have to use the train and walk partly, home.
At the doc, they decided I needed to see the doc in person, so I got an immediate appointment. He took some tests: I had to walk feet in front of each other towards him and he tested my eyes. He asked me lots of questions and I told him of my last 3 weeks. He then felt my head (he didn't just feel, he pushed and pressed: OUCH!), and told me ''you have a mild concussion.'' Yeah, I came in with ''I think I might have a concussion.'' So big surprise there.
But now I have to rest....which isn't easy with 2 jobs. I'm not sure what to do now, because I have to work tonight. It's only for 4 hours though, so I think I'll just talk it through with my boss. This weekend I have 2 days off, BUT I was going to a family party. Now I'm not sure if that is a good thing, considering the amount of traveltime (think 3,5 h to and 3,5 hc fro) and energy it costs. But I don't have a lot of chances to see them all, and last time there was a big party(my grandma turned 80), I had to miss it because of snow.(the trains were down).
Still the doc said it doesn't necesarily means I have to stay at home, but I had to take in account the slipping concentration adn balance. Resting is an issue for me, because I'm always busy with 100 things all at once, especially in my head. No wonder it hurts like crazy now. BEing behind a computer doesn't make it feel better either.
These bad sort of episodes always seem to fall on us once in a while. Where just everything goes wrong. Is it because we are just too happy and it needs to be evened out? Have I been a bad person in another life?
Please tell me, because I've always done my best to be a good person, what the ... is wrong with my karma?
