Red Light Means Don't Go


My body is still giving me a red light. I have not recovered from my STEEMFest trip very much. After almost a week, I think I should feel much better now, but I'm not doing well at all.

The edema I have is still quite debilitating. My loosest clothes are too tight to wear comfortably. The fluid in my trunk is making it hard to breathe, lie down, and sleep. My ankles look like grapefruits. I just caught sight of my face in the bathroom mirror, and it is swollen enough to be comical if I was not worried.

My joint pain levels are high. Joints that normally do not hurt are acting up. If I was not so exhausted, I think I would be in more pain.

I have been in bed for most of the last two days, only getting up to try to post, do some replies, and to get food and water. I'm about to go out for water again at midnight, and hope I make it up the hills. I have none in this condo, and need to keep drinking.

And how about that rent due now? I am no where close to being able to pay it. When I do post on all three blogs - half of my normal effort - the payouts are low. And btc/steem are tanking again. sigh...

I always say I am the most optimistic person I know. Not feeling it today, but hoping to come back soon.

I have a list of posts to get out and projects to start. I turned it over so it will not make me feel worse.
