To quote E.T.: "Ouuuuuuuuuch!" 

Am trying to recuperate from this weekend's adventures. Woke up yesterday in so much pain I couldn't get out of bed without help. Literally hurt from head to toe....it even hurt my scalp to brush my hair.

Have had the muscle spasms from Hades. Couldn't get on the floor to do my regular streches yesterday, so I had to modify some and do them in bed. Finally got up for the day at 2pm.....at least I THOUGHT I was up for the day.

I made it as far as the couch and couldn't move any further. Sipped on a Boost protein shake to try to quell my queasy stomach. After an hour or so, I decided to go back upstairs to take a shower.

Unfortunately, that trip up the stairs wore me out so much that I just had to lie down for a minute. That minute turned into 2 hours. And then I had to lie down again after the shower.

Before I knew it, it was 6pm, I needed to eat but was too out of it to cook. Dan got me a burrito without the tortilla from a local Tex/Cal grill. That helped at first, but by the time I finished it, I was tired again.

So I became one with the couch until "Desperate Housewives" was over. I did some stuff on the computer, but I don't remember much of it because I was so out of it. I think I went back to bed about 1:30am.

Today, I vowed to go to aquacise as long as Dan drove me there. Good thing he drove....I couldn't turn my head and could barely even walk. I managed to loosen up some in the pool, but holy cow it HURT!

Tonight I can think of things I'd like to be doing, but I can't concentrate well enough to do them. I want sooooo badly to go back to bed, and I would if my digestion didn't depend on me staying upright. I wonder if I can comprehend a comedy on DVD?

I'm hoping if I can go to bed kinda early tonight, I'll feel better tomorrow. Haven't gotten a good night's sleep for awhile due to pain and muscle cramps. Really adds to the zombie factor.

Oof, I'm dozing off. I should at least go prop myself on the couch.

My girlfriend with CFS/Fibro calls that the "ickies". The pain after the fun.

Recover quickly.
