I woke up with a terrible headache this morning. My head felt like someone was hammering a hammer off of it.
I didnt go in to college. I couldnt face it. I knew I couldnt concentrate on anything with such a bad headache. I took two paracetamol and went back to bed.
I didnt get up until mom came over at 1 o’clock. Mom only came over for an hour. She wanted to cut my grass while the weather was good. I got up and had a cup of tea, my headache was gone by then.
I am feeling much better now. My PA Nuala who normally does wednesday evenings texted me to say she’s ill so she wont be coming tonight. Its too late to get cover. But thats ok, I didnt have much for her to do anyway.
I’m going to just chill for the afternoon. I might watch some tv, read and listen to some music while I catch up on my email.
I woke up at 3:30 after only 3 hours of sleep. At least I did get 3 hours though. I’m glad of that much.
I have a busy tuesday ahead of me.
This morning my PA comes at 9. We’re not going out, we’re just going to do some housework.
She is here until 11:30. I will have a few hours at home then, before going to work in the afternoon. I work from about 1:45 in the afternoon until around 4 or 4:30.
I have to remember that I have some chocolate to bring to my supervisor, they’re from a client, who is also my friend, norma. She gave my supervisor some chocolates because she helped her to obtain a panic alarm and she wanted to thank her. So I said I’d take them to her as my supervisor was unable to get to her house today to pick them up.
After work I will come home for about an hour, before its time to go to my slimming world group. The group starts at 5:30. I hope I am down this week. I think its looking like I will be. Fingers crossed anyway. I’m very hopeful.
It will be after 7 PM before I eat dinner and sit down to relax for the rest of the evening.
I probably could have done with some more sleep, but oh well. I’ll be ok. I need to go and shower now. It will help brush the cobwebs out of my eyes.
I am going to be super busy tomorrow. I am gladI had a free day today since tomorrow I wont have time to look around me or breathe.
In the morning my PA will come, she arrives at 9 AM!
I need to go to the store! I have to buy some stuff for baking, since I am going to make banana bread with my other PA on Wednesday night.
We are going to make the slimming world banana bread!
I need to buy loaf tins, liners for them and an electric whisk, and I also need to get the ingredients for the banana bread.
After doing all that we’ll come back to my house and I’ll get my pa to do some vacuming, mopping the floors, and other house work.
I work tomorrow in the afternoon on friendly call. That is going to be good I think. I am looking forward to going in.
After work when my supervisor drops me home, I’ll just about have time to get changed, and brush my teeth, before I need to rush out the door again to my slimming world group.
It will be 7:30 before I can actually get dinner, and sit down for the evening and relax. So if you dont hear a lot from me tomorrow thats why. Its just that I am running around like a headless chicken, lol.
Now if I was able to sleep I’d be all set. But unfortunately I cant sleep. I slept for 2 hours in the afternoon today because I was drained after therapy. That pretty much messed me up for tonight. I had to sleep though, I wasnt able to keep going and my eyes kept closing. Probably because I only got about 3 hours of sleep last night.
I had a bit of a situation happen to me this morning. I had gone to my parents house last night. Normally I dont go until friday, but I felt a little bit low last night so I decided to give my PA the day off this morning and just go to my parents house last night. I tried to contact her to tell her but she wasnt answering the phone. I thought she may be at work, so I waited a while and then called again, but I still couldnt get through to her.
I texted her about 10 o’clock to tell her. Then this morning I tried calling her again. I still wasnt getting an answer, so I decided that I’d have to go back to my house, and wait for her to arrive and just do our two hours. I was all set to go, I had rang a taxi to take me, and then, just before the taxi arrived, a text came in from her.
I was so glad not to have to go back home. It would have cost me another 15 euro up and back so I am glad that she got my message and texted me back.
It was a sticky situation for sure. I feel glad that it got resolved. I thought that her phone was broken or something, and thats why she wasnt answering me. It is good to know she’s ok.
I had a very relaxing morning, spent time online, and with my mom. I am working in the afternoon today. I am looking forward to work.
Tomorrow I am going to a conference, organised by the national council for the blind, its a learning and technology conference, and its on all day, from 10 AM until 4 PM.
I had the headache from hell today. It stuck around for what felt like hours. It really was only about 2 hours but oh man that was long enough. It was so sore. My head was throbbing as if someone was hitting me over the head. The pain was almost unbearable.
I lay on my bed for a while, because that was just about all I could manage. I tried to sleep but couldnt. So then I decided to post to fb about it. Some fb friends gave me some advice and tried to help me get rid of it.
Eventually I drank two bottles of water, and ate some dinner. And that seemed to do the trick. Mom did say she thought I may be dehydrated. I am getting my PA to bring me some paracetamol tablets, because I had none in the house, and its always handy to have those around in case of emergencies.
I am just glad it is gone now. I really hate having bad headaches.
I am participating in Fandangos prompt again this week, the who won the week prompt!
Fandango says the following about the prompt.
The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who you think won this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
So for me this week, the person who won the week is none other than my PA Frances. She won this week for two reasons. Number one, she always brightens my day, and lifts my mood. She comes in, we chat and I really enjoy our long convos. She cleaned my house this past week from top to bottom. Without me telling her what she needed to do, she also took time out of her day when she wasnt working with me to go pick up my meds, and bring them to me. She also went to the store to get me a few things I needed, again on her own time, and I was very grateful that she did that for me. So thank you, Frances. She doesnt read my blog, but I still wanted to acknowledge her. I wanted everyone to know what a great PA she is. I think she does a fine job and she’s a great person to have as a PA.
Happy wednesday! I am so glad its wednesday! half the week is over, yay!
How are you all doing?
I am doing very well! I slept well which was awesome! I am so glad I slept well last night! I was in bed last night by 10 PM and asleep by 10:30. I got a good solid 5 or six hours!
this morning I go see dr. barry! I am so looking forward to our appointment. I love seeing her, as we always talk about a lot. Today will be no exception. I need to tell her that Eileens home. I also need to tell her my sleep is a bit better. And I also need to talk to her about the prazosin, I have to come off of it since the wholesale supplier isnt supplying it any longer. I hope she can find an alternative for me.
I also need to get my trevicta shot from the clinic nurse. I cant believe its been 3 months already since I got my last one!
I hope the wait before I see dr. barry wont be too long. I hate all the waiting. I get so bored. Maybe I’ll bring a book and read that. Or go on my phone and go on facebook or something.
After my apt with dr. barry moms coming over to my place for an hour, she’s going to cut my grass, and she’s going to clean up the dog poop in my yard. My sisters going to drop her off on her way to work. I’ll probably just have lunch while she’s doing those things.
Then this evening at 5:30 my Pa comes. We’re going to walk Nitro. I’ll probably do the same walk that I did last week. That takes an hour to complete. Its a nice walk. Weather permitting of course. I hope the weather stays good so we can get out. I enjoy the walking and we talk as we walk which is nice. Nitro needs the exercise and so do I! It keeps me fit!
So thats my day in a nutshell! What does your day look like? Have you anything planned?
