so last night I spent most of the night in my chair. soon I am going to sleep for however long, still in the chair. I did go up to bed at one point but woke up from a dream in which I could not breathe and knew I could not breathe because I was asleep and Really Could Not Breathe! it was scary. I won't be sleeping horizontally till whatever is messing with my sinuses has gone far, far away.

this morning I woke up feeling much better: everything had drained, head didn't hurt, no coughing or sneezing. but as the day progresses the headache/eyeache has come back and I'm getting a little drippy again so I think sleep therapy is indicated. nan even told me I should go to the doctor tomorrow night if my head is still clogged. I've never had a sinus infection before but have had head colds aplenty, and this feels a bit different from all of those. the whole sinus-pushing-your-eyeball-out-of-your-skull thing is new to me. what else is a sign of a sinus infection? I'm not really exuding much snot and what little there is is clear. don't sinus infections usually mean gross crap comes out of your nose?

anyway. no one is obliged to help me with this somewhat disgusting question. I can google it.

that's all really. there is other drama in my life but I do not have the energy to deal with it.

oh crap. I have a paper to edit. guess I'm not sleeping just yet. crap crap crap.

hm. maybe a short nap, then edit, then sleep for however long. it's not due till 2am. maybe I'll set the alarm for 1am to give myself exactly one hour.

ok that really is all for the time being. nighty night.

i'm sorry your still sick.

To give another sign of a sinus infection, have you tried tapping above your brow and below your eyes with a couple fingers? If you tap where your upper and lower sinuses are located and it hurts (usually a lot with just some normal tapping) that is a sign of a sinus infection. Tap right above your eyebrows but near the bridge of your nose, and tap below the actual eye socket on either side of the nose. I used to get sinus infections a lot as a child, and that was one sure sign.

What you are experiencing could be a sign of a seasonal allergy. It appears like mold and grass are very high and high in your area right now.

this has absolutely nothing to do with your post, but i wanted to tell you this story:

i am reading a book that my mother read and recommended to me. it is called "out stealing horses", and it is by the norwegian author per petterson. so i got into this book, and i couldn't shake the feeling that i'd read something by him before. i was pretty sure i hadn't; i've only really shaken the post-collegiate burnout thing pretty recently, and so i've only been reading decently-written novels with moderately complex plotlines in the last few months or so -- prior to that, it was just about entirely junk stuff designed to "escape" or whatever. and per petterson is not a junk novelist whose stuff you'd read to escape. or maybe you would, but i wouldn't.

anyway, then i realized why i felt like i'd read something of his before: his writing style strikes me as very, very similar to yours. i mean that as a compliment, because i am enjoying his writing style, and i think this book is pretty popular right now, so other people are enjoying it, too. :)

cool. that's good to know. gives me hope! now if I can just get the first book out the door and the second one in the pipes. it's slower than it seems it should be, writing.
