Swollen Up, Again

Had I wanted to make the absolutely best out of my 4 weeks off Uni, I can now say: it is NOT working. My body is totally revolting. I am even considering that I have a severe case of chronic fatigue, not even funny. It is getting worse by the day. My face is completely swollen up since days, I can barely get my eyes open. Yesterday, I couldnt even move anymore. I am so exhausted. I am literally fighting my way through to Wednesday, where I hopefully start a one week vacation. If they cut it, I have to go on sick leave. I absolutely never go on sick leave, not even these days. But I am far beyond of what I am capable of managing. To make matters much worse, I have to train someone new since Thursday. New wanna-be mail carriers, get one week of training, it is terribly exhausting to train someone new, because you have to explain everything over and over again without stopping, for 8+ hours straight. And if that wasnt enough, the person I have to train, is from Nigeria. 😯 Who can barely speak German. This might explain my current state of health. It is too much. If I get my week off, I have already pflastered it with meeting up with lots of people that I have terribly neglected lately. 🙄 Have I done any of the Uni things that I need to do? Nope. As so often, Connie is in need of a miracle.

Another thing that I have very painfully learned: never stop meds that mess with you brain from one day to another. 😕 Yikes! 👿 👿 👿 And: you have to fight for absolutely everything. Not even funny. My 6th week of vacation due to my high disability status? Nope, never got it. I found out by pure luck. So now the union is fighting for it. Reason why others get it and I dont? Pure will of those in charge. Ridiculous. I will be so glad to leave this madhouse of horror, also called the Austrian Postal Service, behind me. Burn to the ground.

Never giving up of course. I die fighting. My head is willing my flesh is weak these days. 😐

I did have very nice hours catching up on Vampire Diaries. SO GOOD! I am now almost up to date. While watching Vampire Diaries, I crocheted a HUGE turtle pillow. Which I absolutely loved making. So much fun making something that big! Here is the making off:

Emma is doing excellent. She is enjoying puppy life o the fullest. 7 months old now and we will hopefully start dog classes at the beginning of March. She could really need it.

When this life is over in some decades, I can honestly say I gave it my all. Have a very good week everyone! ➡

    I wish for you the miracle that you need Connie! *hugs*

    P.S. We should all look as relaxed as Emma!
