Listen To Your Friends 1

Especially when they tell you “if you have the same cold I have, don’t work out until you feel 100% better. You’ll just wind up feeling way worse.” Felt better-ish Wednesday, much better Thursday morning so I worked out, a bit worse Thursday night, worked out yesterday morning because I thought it was just the ...

Immunity

My immune system tends to collapse when shows come to an end. The sheer stress and insanity holds it together for most or all of a season, and then the second I start to relax, boom. I remember when Mark and I went to Europe, I’d just gotten off my second season at Ellen and ...

Patient Updates

Patient: My aunt Status: Released from hospital Notes: Significant improvement from when I first arrived in CT. Gnarly scar on her neck from carotid surgery that’s going to be lots of fun to explain to my grandmother, but otherwise on the road to recovery. Has 23 pound cat now providing round the clock snuggle therapy ...

Stoned Kitty 3

I went to visit Chaplin tonight during the animal hospital’s visiting hours, and I’ve come back significantly reassured about how he’s doing. Especially after what happened last night. After I posted last night, there were complications. While they were trying to cathetrize and manually unblock him, his urethra tore (cue all the guys reading this ...

Too Quiet 1

I thought the earlier barfing incident was just Chap’s usual adventures in hairball-tasticness, but apparently not. He got really listless and cranky tonight, and after puking IN his litterbox then barely being mobile and crying in pain, I took him to the vet. He’s got some sort of urinary blockage that they’re going to have ...

I’d Better Go Out And Catch It

Ah, the first week of work after a long layoff. Inevitable lack of sleep and exposure to fun new germs leaving me sick…again. The good news is that this seems to be one that’s only affecting my chest and sinuses, and not completely addling my brain like the last cold I had. The bad news: ...

A Brief Update

Cold: Yep, still there. Thought it was going yesterday, then woke up to a nice fresh bout of coughing up internal organs this morning. Fun! Work: Still unemployed. I suppose I should be grateful that I’m not fighting through this nonsense while working, but the financial and boredom situations are both getting a bit concerning. ...

Okay, Lungs, Very Funny

It’s real amusing that you’re trying to escape my chest, but making me cough so much I lose my voice is not fuckin’ cool. And making me whip suddenly between restlessly full of energy and narcoleptically exhausted is not helping, either. I guarantee you that I will start feeling better approximately the same time friday ...

Dear Immune System

Thanks for waiting until I was in Vegas last night to completely collapse on me. It allowed me to enjoy the vast majority of my vacation without feeling like I was going to cough up a lung. Made the drive back to L.A. this morning a little miserable, but at least I had a box ...

Health Update

Good News: I was able to drag myself to the gym today and did 35 minutes on the elliptical, which felt great. Bad News: Then I came home and passed out for four hours, which felt much better. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll only pass out for 2-3 hours after working out…
