Feeling UN + (picture)...

     Home again...I awoke very early this morning after only a SHORT 2-3 hour sleep (most people would call that a nap I think), feeling nauseated, dizzy, congested, with headache, tingling hands, and a generalized feeling of CRAP!  Since blowing chunks at my place of employment isn't considered "cool", I opted to call in sick and hope someone could replace me.  In the early afternoon I found myself so lightheaded, I thought I might be unexpectedly kissing the floor, so I finally emailed Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named.

     After multi-emails back and forth, some of which contained sarcasm and foul language (not really...at least not the foul language), it has been decided I NEED to get a CBC and neutralizing antibody tests drawn ASAP.  There's concern I either may be sick with something or the TYSABRI (AKA Neutralizing Antibodies) are causing this state of "unwell".  And don't worry...none of my current symptoms even smell of PML.  But, something just ain't right inside.

     I'm hoping to hit the bed soon, sleep a deep sleep, and awaken in the morning feeling "frisky"...but if I can't have frisky, I'll settle for just a bit less unwell.  Actually, I'm just hoping I feel WELL enough to go in to get my blood drawn...it's a beauch to feel too sick to even go see your doctor...

Gosh, I hope you feel better and you find out soon what the problem is.

Your blood chemistry is skewed ... the balance has been ripped asunder.  Just a little bit of foreign radicals introduced can cause problems.  Add to it your aggressive immune system and we have trouble in the waiting.  I'm hoping that this too will pass.   Well, it would be nice if MS would just fade away while we are at it.

BTW: I was looking at the image and your title ... You are UN-Covered?  As in NEKKID?!  No wonder you are getting sick.  Put some clothing on woman!

HARKOO:  Thank you for the "well" wishes (pun intended)...I'm going to go get the lab draw done today and hopefully report back to work at least feeling "half-assed" enough to keep up with the pace!

MDMHVONPA:  Hehe hehe...So, wise one...you're ON to me and my "nakidity"!!!  LOL  Actually, I thought from you the comment might read, "You're feeling UNCLEAN as I doubt that well in the picture has a real water source...probably just stagnant rain water seeping in!
And you are right about the ol' immune system...I've been "messing" with it via drugs and I think "it" is not happy with me right now!  Either that, or I've developed a severe case of low tolerance to minor details...like walking, sitting upright, etc...thanks for the kind wishes though...
