I’m sick again.
Oh, fair warning. If you don’t want to read a post about me whinging about life, you should stop now.
It’s nothing major, the sickness, just a cold.
I swear, this is number 4 or 5 this year, including the flu one. I’ve lost count. I’m over it.
I’m also still fatigued alot. Like, I can get out and run agility, or do tricks with Lu, but at school I feel tired and at home, tired. It’s quite frustrating because everyone says that when they went vegan they suddenly had a lot of energy. I was the opposite. Also, everyone says that when they went vegan, they never get sick. Again, opposite.
I feel like I’m falling to pieces. Sitting here with an ice-pack on the weird top-part of my ankle, foot… thing.. that I can’t even find a name for.. because it’s playing up again, snuffling with my stupid cold and wondering if maybe I should just go to bed because I can’t be bothered making dinner (not even a salad or something) or driving to get some noodles because that would involve changing out of my PJs and into clothes and also getting in the car and then reversing down the driveway which is way more effort than I’m willing to put in right now…
And while we’re on the topic of food, I’ve been super healthy lately. Like, seriously, loading up on the fruit and veg. Breakfast is half a banana and this nut/seed mix, then snack is some fruit and some carrot and capsicum in hummus, lunch is usually some leftovers or whatever, more snack, more fruit, or dates or something… bit of dark chocolate, and dinner has been lots of salads and sometimes thai curries. And yet, AND YET… I’m feeling bloated and gross in the guts. I’m being punished for eating more vegetables. How is this fair?
And then there’s Lumen who is really bad about being a dog right now. She apparently needs lots of tissues and anything cardboard, or like, Nic’s glasses, or a heat pack that’s lying around. And she still can’t jump and she hates doing weaves so she goes all slowly because I made weaves really un-fun. So hey, there’s a bit more stress and oh, also, we’re thinking of selling our house that we’ve only been in for a year because I might not have an agility field any more by Feb and I’d really like to train in our backyard so we’re trying to make that happen but anywhere nice to live is on a fricken hill unless you want to go to some crummy suburb in which case it’s flat but yuck. Maybe if we had an extra 200k to throw around…
So anyway, I don’t want to blame being sick, tired, and feeling horrible in the guts on being vegan because that’s dumb and what am I going to do anyway because I don’t want to eat animals because I like animals and I don’t see how a chicken breast every now and then could make me feel better but I seriously feel like my health has declined since going vegan even though I’m eating more nuts, seeds, fruit and veg. I don’t understand.
