Ready to restart redone

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Well, I wrote a blog about how it's time to restart. It was dragging, and sluggardly, and somewhat despondent, but in the end peppy. Too bad it didn't post.

Point is, I'm going to go running tonight. I told the new boy that I was going to in order to hold myself accountable in case he asks about it tonight. He's very into fitness and I don't want to sound like a sissy slacker if he does ask, which means I have to go running.

I was disinclined to do it because my iPod is dead, and I hate running without music, but my mom was nifty enough to bring her charger to me at work, so it's charging on my computer as we speak and will be ready to go tonight.

So glad to finally be getting over being sick. I was so dragged down, all the time. I haven't yet hit the fully well, glad to be alive and young stage (which I always get after I've been sick and I recover; love it), but I am recovered enough to at least start moving. Just need to keep up the drive to do it.

Anyway. Wish me luck :)

Radio interview on my work

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Hey folks,

If anyone's interested, as of tomorrow (1-7-2011) sometime a radio interview I and my boss gave regarding the Yurok condor restoration project will be up as an audio archive. It'll be up for a week.

The link to the archives page for KHSU is:

Just a bit about condors, about what we've been doing, their significance to the Yurok Tribe. I believe there will be a link towards the bottom that says the Econews Report. This one was done by Ken Burton and lists myself and my boss as talking about the Yurok condor project.

P.S. Actually, I was just wandering through the archives, and I can't find last week's talk by our host, given on the Humboldt marten. It may be harder to find this week's episode than I thought. I'll try and repost a link here tomorrow once I find it.


Don't really want to say it but...

Sunday, January 02, 2011

I'm not sure I want to say it, but . . . I might be almost well. Lol, I type this with a brief pause to cough vigorously.

I'm not really noticing the coughing anymore. It doesn't hurt, I don't go into paroxysms when I speak. It doesn't keep me from sleeping. It's still there, but it's mostly ignorable.

I'm not dizzy anymore (except after a particularly vigorous coughing session). My head only aches some of the time. No more fever.

I am now experiencing gastrointestinal difficulties, but I think that's a result of the antibiotics, and hopefully some probiotics will clear that up. It's weird, but my ab muscles kinda hurt. I might've thought it was from the coughing, but I've been coughing for almost two months. Why start hurting now? Strange.

I don't feel spectacular, but I feel workable now. I'm actually cleaning a bit of house this evening, which has become a disaster.

This has been one of the worst, most prolonged sick attacks I've had in a long time. I'm really looking forward to the day that I'm completely well.

Illness progression

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Many thanks to all of you out there who have expressed commiseration over my being sick.

Finally went to United Indian Health Services to see the doctor today. He doesn't know what's up. The prolonged nature and depth of the cough may indicate whooping cough. We've had a bit of an outbreak here. But I had a booster for it just 6 months ago, so it's unlikely. It could also be pneumonia, but there's not the crackling sound in my lungs that usually goes with it. It doesn't rule it out, but it's not confirmable. Could be a virus, especially in conjunction with the dizziness I've got going on.

But, I've been sick in various stages for over a month now. So he ended up giving me antibiotics and suggested an anti-dizziness med. The anti-dizz med seems to have helped enough that I feel I can drive safely now, so perhaps I'll go back to work tomorrow. Blah. Going to go out and get dinner now, but hope all is well out there for you guys...

    So glad you finally saw a doctor--hope the meds help. Did he do any lab tests that will rule out or confirm something specific?
