1819 Optimism.


The other night I thought I was really tired because when I got up to go to bed I was super dizzy. I may have been tired but I was also apparently having some kind of weird sickness that did its rounds in my family. I was the last to get it. It only lasted a few hours but I was so dizzy it made me want to barf, but I hadn’t eaten enough to give it any fuel. Mostly I’m okay now, but a little of the dizziness has remained since I already have some from my allergies and it’s piggybacking on it a bit. I’ve been alternating between feeling fine and feeling very dizzy since the original occurrence. My eyes and ears feel muddy and my sinuses seem inflamed a bit. So I may still be getting over the bug. The problem is that I’m very awake from resting so much. Not all of me is tired but enough bits are that I’m not functioning very well. Since I rarely feel sleepy when I need to sleep it’s really hard to tell when I’m sick or just tired. I think I might actually be tired right now but I’m awake enough that I want to do stuff. I’ve developed a twitch in my left eye though, which is usually a sign of exhaustion that has gone on for too long. I guess I’ll go lay down and see if I go to sleep or just get back up in a few minutes.
