Slow down.

It’s official I have no clue what I’m doing.

I woke this morning to a man’s voice telling me to slow down, I don’t have to do it all at once. I’m ploughing through too much. There wasn’t anyone actually there, but I figured it was a reference to work. I nearly have the next 2 months calendars and newsletters done, and the manual on everything about my job is about 2/3’s completed. So, I resigned to not worrying about putting more into those today. I’m torn right now, as I’ve seen positive changes in my work environment and do appreciate my new knowledge of the company, but still feel pulled to complete the side-step I referenced before. I just don’t know and have been second guessing myself.

Anyway, I went to work and just before lunch felt sick. My body was already hurting from allergic reactions, but suddenly my head joined in and my chest and shoulders felt like they were on fire. I thought the chest pain might be a thyroid slump from my reactions, so I tried taking my medicine and just resting for lunch. No avail, by the end of lunch I felt no better and was beginning to feel exhausted.

I filled managers in, called Nathan to pick me up, and got things squared away for the remainder of the day and tomorrow’s entertainment, as a just in case.

Nathan took me home, I slept during the 20 min ride, and then slept another 3 hours. I’ve taken an Epsom salt bath with 2 bags of salt, and drank alkaline baking-soda water. My body hurts less, but I still have a severe headache and my chest and shoulders are on fire- radiating down into my arms, and I’m feeling like I have wicked heartburn to boot. I told Nathan the closest comparison I have is when I had the gallstones and had my gallbladder removed. I stupidly asked Google if it was possible to have a gallstone without a gallbladder. The answer is yes BTW. Merh, let’s hope I’m just sick.

Anyway, I’m sticking with the rest and detox theme in hopes that I’m better by morning. I’m literally just watching my family do their usual.

Katherine will be a year old in about a week, and she’s decided climbing and regular drink cups are a great idea. I’ll leave you with pictures and video of her, as I’m feeling very proud and like she’s way more entertaining than I am right now.

May we all have wonderful progress like Katherine and may I feel better by morning!
