Ouch. A day of complaints.

Apparently, I have angered the gods of wellbeing. Everything hurts. My shoulders and neck feel fused together–or at least like they really would like to be–wingstubs are deeply upset, and I’ve got this odd and persistent pain in my right breast. It’s a hot, jabby ache, worse than a bruise but not sharp like a cut. I slept for something like fourteen hours yesterday, and I’m still tired. I’d say I was in a flare, but I haven’t spiked a fever (yet).

Seems like I overdid something. Stupid body.

    I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well.

    Not a feeling to enjoy. I’m hoping for no fever and a quick end to the pain. Must find that anthology so I can ask you if you’ve read a certain story in it and find out how you felt about it…

    Be better.

      I think I’m getting pretty close to stamping this an official flare-up. Yuck.

        Damn. Just- damn.

        I recommended this to someone else the other day. I got it to try for the muscle cramps and things I get during flares, and gave myself a scalp massage with it a few weeks ago.

        Amazingly, it did more for my neck, arms and shoulders than anything else has, even though it was hell on the tenderpoints my scalp has. If you try it, spend extra time on the occipital and temporal areas, and take small breaks to roll your neck and shoulders in between. The tenderpoints relaxed after a few days of this, and my hair likes the extra conditioning.

        I was really impressed, given that I wasn’t expecting more than a few minutes of self-indulgent, scented relaxation.

  3. Poor Eugie. 🙁 Feel better soon!

  4. Take care of yourself. Maybe you should see a doctor about a few of those aches?

    First off, I saw you in Atlanta on one of the DC panels and I really enjoyed it. 🙂 Thanks.

    My question though is I see you joined the Club 100 for Writers and you are going up in numbers…is that the number of days you’ve successfully done 100?

    • Eugie Foster says:

      Hi! Glad you enjoyed Dragon*Con. It was a great year.

      I see you joined the Club 100 for Writers and you are going up in numbers…is that the number of days you’ve successfully done 100?

      Yepper. I allow myself weekends and holidays off, although some folks who do Club 100 don’t. Even so, I’ve fallen off the merry-go-round several times and had to start over again. Sigh.

    if it fits with your beliefs, and other medications; i would recommend gin and tonics by day and whiskey at night. then again, i am probably a bad influence.

    • Eugie Foster says:

      *points* BAD INFLUENCE! *snerk* If I was feeling just a smidgen better, I’d be all over your gin and tonic suggestion (although not your whiskey one. Yuck). But right now, I think my system is on the verge of full-out rebellion, and I’m afraid to risk throwing my internal thermostat off. But a nice, stiff drink sounds terribly yummy right now.

      • gardenwaltz says:

        heh, i thought you were a tonic kind of person, don’t know why. i’ve actually never had one, but i’m not too fond of gin. now whiskey… oh dear, i could get myself in some trouble.

  7. I hope you feel better later, Eugie. *hugs*
