Odin's Day

Happy birthday to jlassen!

Oh you guys. Oh. You guys. This sucks.

I'm pretty sure the achiness is mostly thanks to the horrible slog through half a foot at least of snow yesterday. (I have a long walk from the bus stop, most of a mile.) I have hit the Robaxin for that.

But also I feel like my throat and lungs have been flayed. And the worst part is that I cannot breathe. Which always causes a low-grade panic reaction for me. I can only take shallow breaths, and when I cough, which is often, I can't get any more air in. So I have quiet little freakouts and have to constantly run the "be patient, air will come, shallow breaths" tape in my head.

I am additionally cranky that I have to baby my lungs so much in cold dry air. Having something like this means I pretty much can't leave my house without getting much worse.

I would do BPAL reviews, but I'm a bit stuffy-nosed, too.

Rest. Rest. More rest. If I have the energy, I may write Arisia recaps. But I expect to spend the day in bed.

Oh hey.
