My weekend - and thanks!

So, I went away for the weekend, a bunch of our friends have birthdays in January and we often go up to a cabin up north and have a fun weekend together. Unfortunately, I came down with a very strange sickness on Friday night once I was already up there that had me laying low all weekend. It's a sickness like I'm never really experienced before, if I stood up for more than 30 seconds, my heart rate would skyrocket, I'd get dizzy and have to sit down.

I spent all Saturday hanging in a cabin by the fire, reading a book and cuddling with my dog. Friends would stop in and chat throughout the day. Wasn't a total wash!

Feeling slightly better today, but might head to the doctor tomorrow depending on symptoms that remain.

My immune system was certainly compromised from the sickness that had me last week, so I think my body was opened to all sorts of germs and couldn't fight them. Ah, well - such is the biological life of a human. We are vulnerable, after all.

Thanks to everyone who left me awesome comments on my post from Friday! It's a great experience blogging with everyone, sharing. I love having an arena in which I can finally be open and honest about my struggles with food and what I'm doing to try to overcome it. It's not really an appropriate topic of conversation in polite society, in general!

  1. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling too good. But what are good are your glasses, they look good on you. Cabin fire looks cosy, just what you need if you're feeling below par.

    Hope you feel better soon - take care

    All the best Jan

  2. Sorry you've been sick, sounds worth getting checked out if it doesn't get better! The cabin sounds lovely, though!

  3. Aw, hope you feel better soon girl. If you were going to be sick, what a nice place to be that lovely fire. Take care of yourself friend ;)

  4. We're you maybe not eating enough? Hope it passes quickly, sweetie.

  5. Hope you're feeling better today.

  6. What a beautiful locale! Hope you feel better soon, but in the mean time, enjoy puppy cuddles by the fire!!!
