    Woke with a migraine due to the meds I take for something else, and I can't stop taking them for at least another week. (Have had migraines daily for the past 6 days already). The diclofenac is affecting my mood tremendously as well, so I've been down lately, more than my current situation merrits in any case. Ah well. Hope to be okay for Christmas. Best I can hope for. But not counting on it, as to not be disappointed. At least there's Christmas cards coming in! The Dutch postal services have a new app that lets you know whether you're getting mail that day, with shots of the envelopes, so I know it's not bills or anything... ;) Something to look forward to. I keep trying to find stuff that perks me up. So, cards coming in, and a J.K. Rowling's just waiting to be read today.

    I hope you feel better soon. Good vibes sent your way, from one wreck to another. ;)

    I have had a weird pain in my sinuses for a few days now which makes me kinda tired and a little dizzy so maybe an infection but hate antibiotics and wondering how long it will take to clear off on its own ...otherwise Christmas shopping done just need all the fresh foods next week

    Still got my headache, perhaps time now to approach the GP for any suggestions they may have. Painkillers not working so have to see what they can advise.
