Death Becomes Her

Oh honey, it may become her, but it's so not a good look for me.

I no longer feel as if I've been completely covered in IcyHot and had my head stuffed by a taxidermist. I am no longer moving like I'm being tasered. I am beginning to dig myself out from under the piles of kleenex, bottles of diet ginger ale, bottles of antibiotics, blankets and ice packs.

Soon I will be able to push through to the surface, I can see light breaking through and it is beautiful.

However you define normal, that is what I long to be. Normal. Breathe normal. Talk normal. Think normal. Dream normal.

Dream normal would be a good place to start. I've had some VERY strange dreams of late.

Like having triplet newborn babies and I was never pregnant, nor did I adopt. I just had them.

Like ballerinas and sled dogs. Like teaching birds to fly.

My kids said they know I am feeling better because I yelled about my house being dirty. I want to see my friends and have a solid meal. And I actually want to go back to work.

Soon friends. Very soon.


  1. You WANT to go back to work?? Your condition is worse than you thought!

  2. We miss you here - lunch is not the same! :)

    Maybe the dream about the "triplets" had something to do with the fact that while you were trying to take care of yourself - you were also taking care of your 3 babies - Jesse & the kids! :)

  3. Oh, I have such sympathy for you. Being sick stinks. And I think the older I get the more dramatic it feels. I had food poisoning a few months ago and honestly felt like I could sympathize with people going through chemo because I was so lethargic and dehydrated. :)

  4. So glad you are feeling better :-)
    My man-flu has been downgraded to alien gunge bungung up every oriface in my head.

    I am glad I am so miserable this week because I am looking forward to being better next week when I am off work!

  5. Oh Dana! I hope you feel better!

    I miss you!

  6. Dana, we miss you. Get well soon! I saw your desk today...take about 18 Advil before you come in. Don volunteered you to head up 22 new projects that need to be done by the 27th.

    Just kidding! Don't have relapse.

  7. glad you're starting to feel better! i missed seeing you when i was in time though! love you!

  8. "moving like I'm being tasered"

    Now *there* is a funny mental image!

    Three cheers for "soon"!

  9. I am sorry you have been feeling bad! That is never fun when you are sick like that and you never feel like you will come out of it or ever see the light of day again! Let's just hope the dreams stay dreams!!!
