So this week kind of fell apart on Wednesday. I came home from my weekly Team Awesome writing date on Tuesday night and promptly got a spell of vertigo when I went to bed. You know that feeling when you’ve had too much to drink, and when you lie down to sleep it off you stop moving but the room keeps going? Yeah, that, except without any fun imbibing beforehand. It’s happened to me only twice before and it’s a bit scary.
I woke up on Wednesday morning feeling quite sick from all the crazy dizziness and managed to get it to stop long enough for me to go to work. I stayed until lunchtime and decided the doctor was probably in my best interests. On the way to the doctor, I started getting a migraine and all the additional fun that entails. Then, when the doctor saw me, she informed me…I have a raging sinus infection AGAIN and the vertigo is a fun new migraine symptom. Lovely. So, to recap:
Blinding facial pain due to migraine + blinding facial pain due to sinus infection = No writing (or ROW80 check-in, for that matter)
I am feeling a bit better today now that my fever has broken, though I still have a toned down version of said blinding facial pain and I’m so tired I’m about to face plant on my desk. Thankfully I was already almost 2,000 words ahead of my goal, and as of today I’m only about 330 words behind where I should be in order to finish the novella by March 24. So, that’s a relief. I am hoping for a great writing day on Sunday that will help me get back ahead of my goal.
I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll be feeling a lot better tomorrow so I can enjoy the day my husband and I have planned to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. I hope everyone else is having a great week!
