Woke up with migraine this morning. But worse than that, woke up from a cruddy dream to migraine. Dream went from normal (riding around in car) to nightmare (launching into deep water and sinking like a rock) in no time at all. Not sure if it was related to or result of the headache or just coincidence, but that's when I woke up with headache. Don't usually have dreams with headaches like this, at least that I can remember. Anyway, sent email to work, now going back to bed. -_-

All of this stuff should be old news for anyone who pays the least bit of attention to the video game industry, but it's still nice to see a somewhat more mainstream outlet like Cracked continuing to pound away on these issues as well.

Now if you will excuse me, now that I'm done skimming my email and news feeds, I'm heading back to bed due to unrelated headache. -_-

That is all.

Even though I went to bed last night before 11pm, I still feel like I only got maybe 2-3 hours of sleep, if even that much. Feeling nauseous and a bit headache-y this morning (not a migraine at least, this time, but still not fun). Even though the radio came on at the usual time, it hardly even registered and I eventually just shut it off and then didn't get up until about an hour and a half later, just a few minutes ago. Still feeling like crap though. Already sent an email to work as I know I would be entirely useless even if I did manage to make it in. Probably going to go to the doctor in a little while, as this isn't the first such night to occur in the past couple of weeks or so.

Went to bed last night a little after midnight and was pretty much feeling fine at the time. Then I woke up around 3am or so with a migraine, which is still going even now. Not sure how much sleep I got after that but I know I got at least some, since when the alarm came on it woke me up from what was among the worst dreams I've ever had. More on that in a bit. I got up and went to send off an email to work telling them I wouldn't be in today, then went back to bed. Only just got up again around 30-45 minutes ago or so, so total time in bed was roughly 11 and a half hours or so. Out of that, no idea how much actual, meaningful sleep there was. Aside from the dream, most of it seemed to feel like a kind of stupor, not fully asleep but not fully awake either. Still feeling incredibly crappy right now.

The dream. )

All in all, this is a really crappy end to an otherwise decent 4-day Thanksgiving weekend. That felt like an actual vacation of sorts. This today, however, just feels like me missing a day of work due to a freaking migraine.

Headaches.

I hate them.

When I went to bed last night, it was with the telltale fuzziness that usually indicates something bad is on the horizon and, sure enough, I woke up this morning around 5:30 or so with this crap. I just turned the alarm off and went back to sleep, only waking up again about 15-20 minutes ago. Wish it could have waited just one more day before setting in, because I was already looking to have a 3-day weekend anyway (Memorial Day being one of the very few holidays we actually get off where I work), but now it's an impromptu 4-day weekend. :(

Headaches suck too. Not sure which is the cause of which, though I'm guessing at least in this particular case the former is the cause of the latter. Went to bed last night around 10pm or so, but didn't fall asleep until at least around 4am or so. Headache started to set in a little after. Only up now because cell phone low battery beeping. Figured while I was up, I'd muddle off an email to work to let them know. Well, that's another day down the drain.

I have a migraine now. It set in around 3:00 last night. I only just got out of bed a few minutes ago, despite not sleeping all that much in that time period. I won't be going to work today. It sucks asscrack.

I had some pretty crappy dreams last night, a few of which I can remember.

Dream #1: The thing in the elevator shaft. )


Dream #2: One of the blasted false awakening dreams. )


Dream #3: The horizontal spider-web above my bed. )


I don't remember ever having dreams during migraine half-sleep like this before, but if this is what they're like, then I can definitely do without.

When I went to bed last night, I had that sort of general malaise that is a precursor to being sick. Was hoping it was just all in my head as it occasionally is, but sadly that wasn't the case this time. Woke up around 4am with the coughing and the stuffy nose making it hard to breathe and thus sleep. By now I feel like I have the full works. As such, the only reason I'm up now is because my alarms woke me up, so I got up and sent off an email to work letting them know I wouldn't be there. Combined with yesterday, that makes this an impromptu four-day weekend. Too bad I can't actually enjoy that. Heading back to bed now. :/

FYI and such. All the same, just about all of last week still sucked pretty badly.

I was coughing and sneezing quite a bit yesterday but otherwise feeling mostly okay, so I went on in to work. Not so this morning, however. Woke up with a full on cold, it feels like. Still coughing and such but worse than yesterday, body/head aches, sore throat (though I'm not sure that that's a direct symptom of the cold rather than just a side effect due to me breathing through my mouth during the night because of stopped up nose, but it sucks either way), and so on. The time frame for this showing up is just about right with having caught something on the flights back last Friday, since it usually takes a few days before something like this fully hits, I think. I just hope I didn't spread this crap to my coworkers during the day yesterday. :/

Indigestion blows. :( Work's going to suck today as a result.

However, the Internet connection here at work has been really sporadic all morning, thus this is the first chance I've gotten to actually get online to do anything, work-related or not.

Woke up this morning feeling like crap. The worst part about it was that A) I felt completely fine, albeit a bit tired (which I guess could have been an advance symptom), when I went to bed last night, shortly after midnight, and B) it was another of those nights, where I had barely closed my eyes and then the alarm came on seemingly a few seconds later. Went back to bed after sending an email off to work, and then got woken up again just now by the telephone.

As for it being cold/flu/whatever, I can rarely tell the difference between the two. I always have to look up the symptoms on the Internet when I come down with something like this. In this case, the symptoms seem to be somewhat more cold-like than flu-like, aside from the relatively sudden onset this morning (though I guess it had seven hours during the night last night to do whatever). And aside from the headache, and general lethargy. I still feel hungry at least, so there is that.

Blah. In any case, I hope it's gone soon, but I'll probably end up missing at least another day of work (not counting today), if not more. Argh.

(EDIT)

Day Two.

Headache isn't as bad today, but all the rest of it is still going strong. :(

This morning as I was getting ready for work, I sat down to put on my socks and shoes and... I'm not sure what happened exactly. I must have turned just the wrong way or something, but my back felt like it just went completely out. I think I pulled a muscle or something, and for a while there I could hardly move at all. And when I did start moving again, it took me around 10-15 minutes just to finish getting my shoes on and tied.

I almost considered calling in again at work, but I've already missed too many days lately for other health related issues to afford missing any more. The actual walk to work seemed to help a bit, and I even managed to make a stop by Safeway to pick up some food for lunch (and a bottle of Bayer Back & Body*). It's not hurting as bad as it was, and I'm not nearly as immobile as I was at first, but still, all in all, this really sucks.

* - Which, as it turns out, has caffeine in it for some reason. So much for my avoidance of all things caffeinated, I guess, though in this case I think it can be forgiven.

This week.

It sucked.

I went to bed on Monday feeling fine and dandy. I woke up on Tuesday with what turned out to be just the start (though at the time it felt like it was already plenty well enough along to suit me) of a really nasty cold/flu/thing that laid me out for the rest of the week. Wednesday evening and most of Thursday were the worst of it, but I went ahead and also took today off from work, since I was still feeling pretty crappy this morning as well. This gives me tomorrow and Sunday to recuperate and get back on something resembling a normal sleep schedule, given that I was asleep for somewhere around an average of 11 hours per day over the course of the thing, asleep at any and all hours of the day. Again, it sucked.

And I thought the previous week was bad with just the headache and all. This just hasn't been a very good month, so far. (Well, I guess that other stuff was at the end of last month, but whatever.)

It's nice to be back at work again, at least.

(EDIT)

Unrelated to the above, but I'm just going to throw it in here rather than making a new post. I just want to say that I think I'm getting to a point in my life where I hate April Fools Day. Just... the mere concept of it. Also, and more to the point, the fact that you simply cannot go anywhere on the Internet (or, at least, to the places I tend to visit, anyway) without running into April Fools gags that are not at all blatantly obvious or just plain retarded. Then again, the insidious ones tend to be even worse.

Guh.
