not feeling good today. i've got a fever, and i've had a lot more spells of vertigo than usual today. stupid cramps too.

i slept until about noon. i'll have to go to the post office on monday since i didn't get to today.

i did do two paintings today though - "Vampire Nymph #4" and a new piece with a mothfairy and an adorable frog. i love frogs so much.

i'm cooking red beans and rice right now - it should be ready soon.

i love matty!

I hope you feel better soon +( I worry about your virtigo, it's not because of your diet is it? Are you getting enough b-vitamins and iron and stuff? *HUG* You shouldn't feel dizzy for no reason =(

Re: =(

hi elizabeth!

i'm feeling much better today. the vertigo is due to my Vasovagal Syncope - a relatively harmless syndrome i have (my sister has it too) where i get annoyingly dizzy and i faint inappropriately (like if i stand up too fast). the only thing they can do about it is to install a pacemaker (which is absurd), or i can just deal with it and not put myself into situations where i put strange pressure on my head or heart where fainting would be particularly dangerous (like skydiving or scubadiving). it's not related to my diet (as a vegetarian i'm careful to make sure i get at least 150% of all my Bs, iron and calcium just to be on the safe side), it's actually hereditary. i always blackout when i go on rollercoasters, but since i love them so much and i'm strapped in securely i don't let it bother me =)

i think the reason yesterday for my overt dizziness was the fact that i've had my period more than 30 out of the past 50 days. once i get health insurance again i need to get back on birth control pills to make me regular again!

ok - enough yucky health talk - back to painting...

Re: =(

Oh ok =) Well I'm glad to know you're ok then +) Whee painting. I kept trying to do that today but stuff would interupt me. I get annoyed when I can't finish a piece in a sitting, or do a lot on it because I never have the same passion towards it once I go back - it just seems old. I know you're the same way. So I think I'll do something else the rest of the day now =P
