Vacation Where Are Though

I am so READY for vacation, not even funny. I am dragging myself through the days, its a nightmare. Of course given the current situation at work, I can dream about vacation and nothing more. Its ridiculous. I hope I can go to that special clinic soon, than at least I wont have to work! *needs a thumb up smilie* I hope they can help me with this grieving thing, its particularly bad again lately. Life. 💡

Tuesday I had my clinic appointment. We decided to cut down on my meds until we can think of something else (not that we have many options left…). I told the doctor that I just have no luck and she replied “well you are lucky you have me!” I thought that was a nice thing to say. ➡ Of course with the lesser dose of Ciclosporin A my skin started to turn for the worse very fast so I went up again. I just cant handle terrible skin anymore. I will see what she says next week.

The week went by horribly slowly. I spent my afternoons in bed, I could do nothing but sleep. As the weather was quite bad, I didnt miss too much. I need to write another paper soon and I have some exams coming up, yikes.

Das Bernstein TheleskopFriday I finished “His Dark Materials and I very much enjoyed the books. Especially part three is really good. As I already posted on Goodreads, I especially loved the concept of Death being born right along with the New Life. But because death is such a big taboo it hides throughout our life and only appears when we are dying. Whereas in this other world, people befriend it almost immediately and always have a good friend in “it”. I loved that idea, plus a bunch of other things. The triology is really worth reading. A nice inbetween read where you dont have to think constantly. It did take me a while to get into it though. But the idea behind it, I love. I also watched the movie in the meantime, they did quite good. Although I still think movies destroy ones fantasy.

MoenchsbergSaturday was quite nice. The weather has finally turned sunny again, so a friend and I went up a city mountain, just because we could. 😎 So lovely up there. Nature is a nice thing. We wanted to go on pilgrimage on Sunday, but I was so unmotivated. Bummer. Its a little church up a mountain and its so lovely up there. I used to go there a lot when I was younger, with my Mom and friends. I figure we will go eventually.

The Sunday I spent reading almost the complete Alison Arngrim Memoir, I love it! I will finish it in a bit. She is quite a person, too. Oh so strong, really smart and with a good heart, thats important.

So much for the last week. I-Pad progress: 65 saved, 535 to go.

    Mir gehts grad ganz ähnlich – ich schleppe mich einfach irgendwie durch die Tage – wenigstens fühle ich mich nicht mehr ganz so krank wie letzte Woche.

    Pass gut auf dich auf – ich drücke weiterhin die Daumen für eine gute Lösung – Klinik + Medi + hoffentlich auch Job

    To find a doctor with a positive attitude..that’s great. Here’s hoping she can follow thru on solving your skin!

    Cold & rainy here for several days…just hoping to see the sun…always raises my spirits. Little mountain church sounds worth the hike!

    @Anu: Du bist ja lieb ➡ , aber du musst selber auf dich aufpassen! Wenns dir nur schlecht genug geht, wirst du leider automatisch krank. Da bist du wieder mal gelandet. Was kannst du Gutes für dich tun? 😛 Aber wenigstens gehts dir wieder besser. Gott sei Dank.

    @Lucy: We always have to pay one sunny day with 10 rainy ones. Argh. I hope you are more lucky with good weather! It really is good for the mood when its not always black and grey… Hoping. 😳

    @Fiona: VACATION!!!!!!! 😥

    Das ist nicht leider – das ist gut – dann kapiert vielleicht irgendjemand wies mir geht.

    Wenn jetzt noch die Kopfschmerzen aufhören, wäre es fast akzeptabel – leider haben wir Systemumstellung und nichts läuft – wie immer und ich hinke eh schon gnadenlos hinterher mit allem – keine Ahnung wie ich es packen soll – doch ich mache einfach weiter – Tag um Tag.

    Will you be able to have a break soon? Your new doctor sounds nice: I hope that you have a positive appointment next week.

    Salzburg + sun + mountains = beautiful. It was 2 years ago I went 🙁

    🙁 We haven’t had any beautiful weather recently. Thanks – I have got an internship but it is unpaid so looking for boring work. Thanks for your encouragement. Off to make chocolate & hazelnut cookies and cheesecake now! x
