My Body Hates Me

Do you ever get the feeling that you are trying to accomplish something but certain things keep getting in the way of grasping the goal you have set out to achieve?  Well that’s how I have felt the past couple weeks.

I am also starting to get this crazy idea in my head that ever since I stopped consuming wine on a daily basis,  my body is going through some kind of metamorphosis.  My cycle is all out of whack.  And I am not referring to my bicycle.  I am referring to the bloody fact of nature that we as women get once a month.  Pun intended.

Now normally I wouldn’t care that she wanted to veer off track and get lost, be late, not show up on time…but the hubs and I are planning a trip coming up.  Our fist trip, ALONE, NO KIDS, and I kid you not if she ruins my plans I will throw my uterus in the road and use it as target practice.

Ok maybe that’s a little harsh.

Or not.

But did I mention that my hubby and I haven’t had a week’s vacation ALONE….EVER???  In the over 7 years we have been together?

Then last week  I went to the gym on Wednesday….twice.  I worked out new muscle groups…worked them hard…went to Zumba.  Even got a lot of housework done that day.  I had felt this little heaviness in my chest but just brushed it off as old man winter still messing with my health.

I came home from Zumba, took my nice hot Epsom salt bath, put on some comfy pajamas and settled down to watch a movie with the hubs.  Fire was going and I was bundled up in a blanket but I was chilled to the bone.

Went to bed only to wake in the middle of the night with the worst chills and body aches since having Mastitis over 6 years ago.

By morning I couldn’t tell which were body aches and which were muscle aches from the muscles I had worked out at the gym the previous day.  All I knew was that I was in pain, from head to toe, and literally couldn’t move except to shake from the fever chills.

I am quite certain I dosed off momentarily and saw the Grim Reaper coming for me.  Ok maybe just an exaggeration but with the way I felt it mine as well have been true.

Thank goodness the hubs was off that day because I could barely move to get to the bathroom to pee. sick flu cooties illness humor And nothing…I mean N*O*T*H*I*N*G that I took relieved a single symptom.  Not Ibuprofen.  Not Thera Flu.  Not DayQuil.  Not Tylenol.  NADDA.  I seriously contemplated downing half a bottle of whiskey and calling it a day.

I started a round of antibiotics.  But even after being on them for a few days I was still getting fevers and body aches.  And here it is a week later and I am feeling better but the fatigue from this is really starting to become annoying.

I don’t have time to be tired!

I am a mother!

And being that my kids keep getting sick in circles as well…I need to be able to take care of them.

It’s interfering with my workout routine!

And I am sick of waking up with my mouth feeling like the Sahara desert!

And I am sick of complaining about being sick!

So I am thinking that maybe wine is in order???

  1. That is the worst so frustrating. My husbands motto is drinking alcohol while sick is the best thing for you, since its alcohol it should burn the sickness out right? Lol. I hope you get better soon so you can enjoy your vacation you guys deserve one.

    1. Yes I would say I’m the majority tired as well…comes with motherhood, wifehood, life in general…but I could seriously sleep all day and that’s just not like me. I really think my body just got so used to my daily wine that now my body is whining to bring it back lol.

      1. That could be too. I gave up wine during the week (most of the time), which has been an adjustment. It’s been a couple weeks now so I have more energy and I’m sleeping better.

  2. Mus’ be one bad a&& bug, wanna mess witchoo, tha’s what I’m talkin’ bout! Just sayin’. Not that you would intimidate prehistoric, microscopic life forms, but, I mean, come on, they clearly don’t realize who they’re messin’ with! The microbial world did not get the memo!

    Of course, it doesn’t help that you live with multiple perambulating petri dishes, who come into daily contact with lots of other perambulating petri dishes. My mom was a kindergarten teacher for 30 years. She lived among the petri dish tribes. Her immune system can bench press 300 pounds. There’s a cloud of viruses and bacterium trying to escape her path where ever she goes.

    Get well soon! Or start drinking heavily. Either way, you feel better, at least in the short term.

    1. All that’s lingering now is the damn cough and fatigue. Just keep wishing that I’ll wake up and feel better. I don’t know how elementary and health care workers do it. I’m still blaming my body trying to acclimate to the northern hemisphere. It liked the warm weather of southern Nevada much more.

  4. Hang in there! Only one more week of cold and flu season left.
    Fatigue is your body telling you you need to rest. Listen to it or you will catch the next thing that is going around .
    Hope you feel better soon!

    1. Yes I have tried to rest. I’m just not very good at it lol. And I hate being crabby and feeling like my mommyness is on the back burner. Hubby is officially off again starting today so hopefully I will be 100% when he returns to work next week.


  5. I actually contemplated on drinking some wine myself yesterday. I haven’t been as sick as you but I’ve been wrestling with headaches for almost a week and i think my body is fighting a stomach bug. Either way, it has seriously messed with my workout routine, not to mention my plans to get my house clean and in order, and working on my writing. The weather hasn’t helped as one day it’s 50 degrees the next four days it’s in the 20’s and either snowing or raining, Blah! All of that has messed with my energy levels and yesterday I was really crabby about it! Today I felt much better and it wa warm out this morning so I went for a short hike. Now it’s cold and looks like it’s about to rain, again! Hang in there chica! We’ll both get through this!

  6. Being sick when you’re a mummy is the worst thing ever isn’t it? I used to take to my bed when I was poorly and stay there until I was well again, now its just a case of getting on with it! Not fun for anyone! Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for hosting. #momsterslink

  7. get well soon. Holiday together sounds good. Everyday Stress of family life can run you down and put pressure on you and your relationship. GET WELL, have sometime together and drink wine ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. I always think the idea of being sick is quite appealing…laying in bed all day, having a proper reason for someone to come and sweep the kids away – leaving me to rest and recouperate…I am pretty sure the reality would be somewhat different! Get well soon honey…if you feel up to drinking, I say do it! Personally, I couldn’t bear the thought of additional mingingness of a hangover when I’m not feeling 100%…

  9. There can be a cheat day for the whole no-wine thing, right? Seriously though, these long-drawn out sicknesses can really really get a person down so I think just for getting through that you’ve earned yourself the right to complain as much as you want!
    Hope you feel better soon!

  10. I feel your pain! It’s the worst flu to hit our house in years. I hope you guys can have your week holidays still. That sounds amazing & much deserved. Take care of yourself & you will be back to exercise & running around in no time! Thanks so much for hosting #momsterlink xx

    1. The good thing is I haven’t had much of an appetite so I’ve continued to lose weight. We are going in April and I’m hoping to buy a new bathing suit for the trip. Today is the first day I’ve felt close to myself so hopefully this week I’ll be able to hit the gym like I want to!

    1. Yes I just can’t handle mommyhood when I’m not 100% myself. And when we are all sick it’s just misery. We are all still dealing with this stupid cough, but today is the first day I have actually felt like leaving the house.


  11. Ugh, I feel your pain at the moment…an endless cycle of sick can be very depressing. I think wine is always in order…my dad gives me brandy and port when I’m ill, that’s good too! I hope you get to have a holiday together without sickness (and without unwelcome visits). Love the pic at the top, I so wish I was the one on the left! Thanks for hosting #momsterlink

    1. Today is actually the first day in over a week that I finally am feeling a bit normal. If we could just get out of this nasty cold and flu season we’d be so much better. Next I’ll be complaining of the hear lol. Thanks so much for linking up!


  12. Ugh– I’m glad you’re on the tail end of all that now! It’s so hard to rest when have things to to do and we just want to go out and be active! Best thing to do is listen to your body and give it some time to heal itself. Last thing you need is to get another illness right before or during your vacation.

    As for the wine– perhaps you can work it back into your life sparingly? Maybe a glass or two a week would be doable? That way, you won’t feel so deprived. I try to tell myself that if I’m going to make a change, it has to be something I can live with for the rest of my life. Otherwise, you’re setting yourself up to fail. xx

    1. I actually haven’t really missed the consumption of wine everyday. I’ve pretty much gotten past that feeling of need for it. But I just don’t understand why all of the sudden I get on the healthy track my body is like whoa wtf??? Lol


  13. Yucky – I certainly hope that you’re feeling better. Maybe start with a shot of wine and see how that makes you feel? ๐Ÿ™‚ I certainly hope that all the ick leaves you, I can certainly say that since my daughter was born 5 years ago and I began the depo shot, that I do not miss that nasty female monthly ritual. Booo Hiss!! On a side note…I hope that you don’t mind that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    1. Thanks so much for the nomination…I have actually already received this reward when I very first started blogging. As for the sickies I still have the cough but today is the first day in over a week that I am actually not feeling so foggy.
