Alice: World of my own
I feel like I should be updating so people don't worry.

So yes. I am lazing about in penguin pajamas; I have finished two books today and am about to start on another one.

I feel that I am very consciously breathing *around* the pneumonia, carefully navigating. My chest hurts sometimes, but disappearing into books helps take my mind off it.

I get tired very easily, but sleep only fitfully.

I don't have sufficient brain to write fiction today. A spot of nonfiction in a certain filter, yes. But while my brain can jump into other people's books, it's not navigating my own as well as I want it to, and I am very particular about doing things just as well as I can or not at all; I find that sometimes when I write a scene it gets set in stone, and I don't want to do that half-assed. So. I will hope for a clearer path tomorrow.

And now I go back to my warm bed with the new Jasper Fforde.

Oof. I remember that 'breathing around the pneumonia' feeling from when I had it last winter. Super-unfun. The most unpleasant part, I found, was when the antibiotics began to break up the gook in my lungs, but at least at that point it was only a few more days until I was feeling significantly better. I hope you heal up soon.

Just so you know, I'm thinking of you. I hope you feel better soonish.

I don't have the pneumonia, but my chest was hurting on the weekend with the cold I have so I put the heating pad on and it felt good. Would that work for you? or a hot water bottle?

I hope you feel better soon.
