asleep at mal 9/09

friday - slept about 11 hours, driven from bed by cleaning elephant heard upstairs - still tired, nap later; skipping adderall for a few days - clenched jaw and shoulder/neck stiffness is worse these days and seems to be worsening/increasing the frequency of headache/migraines and i need to figure out if this is the adderall or something related to the antibiotics or vfend and the side effects from those such as the major dizziness and/or the candidia; tired and nappy all day, stomach upset from anti-biotics vs. anti-candidia continues, throat/mouth still torn up from candidia as well; ~9pm calories retained today are in the negative numbers - wheee

saturday - 2pm slept 14+ hours and want to nap now, jaw/headache still here as are other symptoms; i'll try one more day w/out adderall, but at this point i don't think it's the cause of the increased pain/muscle tension; made it to a's birthday thing for a bit and then bar sin for about 90 mins - stood by the stage or in the back for most of ego likeness' set, we bailed before bella morte (i really dislike that space); slept poorly due to a combination of nightmares and waking up for meds but still got ~ 9 hours out of 12 spent in bed

sunday - finally out of bed late afternoon, migraine again (day 3 sans adderall, pretty positive that's not the cause of the headaches at this point); ran into some reading about access and invisible illness which is good, twittered the links for later reference as i don't appear to be getting better and if i don't save them i'll probably forget what i've read; also, light before 5am and dark before 5pm is really fucking with me this year, a lot more than usual, i want to be back on daylight savings time permanently; 2 hours after wakeup - bad fuzzy vision now = time to watch some videos; vision went from double/fuzzy to worse - bright spots and flares and ouch from white on the computer, turned off most of the lights in the house; it got a bit better by the time we headed to mal, but i still wore sunglasses in the car to help; i spent most of the night curled up on couches or the patio talking w/ people as i couldn't stand the lights on the dance floor; damn it i needed to dance off this mood; slept a lot (13? 14? hours)

monday - did approximately nothing, lost a few hours?; online and some job hunt stuff and reheating lasagna for dinner was the extent of my accomplishments for the day; still having issues w/ vision/bright light - i know this is the anti-biotics (listed side effects) but it sucks big-time; vertigo so bad i can't make it the 6' from couch to kitchen without holding on to something - wtf did i do to the universe that this has become my day?!; bed early, slept for 13+ hours again (note: this is w/out adderall - i stopped taking them to make sure they aren't the cause of the increased muscle pain/more frequent headaches; it does not appear to be adderall that is causing them; i hurt worse than i have since before i left for LA, and have had at least a low grade headache from the moment i wake up until i hit the bed again)

tuesday - just woke up, vertigo continues (complete with ringing in my ears which seems to be getting worse) headache still banded around my forehead, i think i remember saying that it felt like there was enough pressure to pop my eyes out; i am going to find something to watch on hulu until t comes home; when he gets here we must run a few errands as we didn't go out yesterday since i felt so shitty and meds have to be refilled - especially the really expensive anti-candidia one (throat/mouth issues have gotten incrementally worse every day on doxy/cipro - 7 days left til that's done and i can hope that things improve after that); last few days of headaches have not equalled i'm all present, so i guess i'm wrong about the correlation w/ migraines? or maybe because this headache seems to be caused by the anti-biotics increasingly bad side effects i should discount that? anyway, going to post this and then watch stupid videos

wtf is wrong with me? wtf is wrong with me, wtf is wrong with me?

maybe you're normally more together when you have a migraine but the light sensitivity is causing a different variety of headache altogether? :(
