I love my new Kindle Touch

I am trying to get off caffeine.  I am wondering if that has anything to do with my tachycardia?  Anyway, the last 2 days I have had killer headaches.  I have been drinking decaf tea with liquid Stevia, and also made some decaf Green Tea sweetened with the Stevia.

I went to the doctor for a follow up for my cyst.  He said it looked great and should heal very well.  While there I asked him how long caffeine withdrawal lasts?  He asked why, and then said well, you could take Excedrin because it will take care of my headaches and it has caffeine which will stop the headaches.  Hmmmmmmm...... to me this sounds like chasing one condition with a substitute that is the condition you were giving away in the first place.  lol

Bill bought me a Kindle Touch for Christmas.  It has taken me some time to get used to it, but now I love it!  The last two days Bill hasn't felt good and has napped a lot, so I have been reading.  No T.V. on, no Stereo on... just silence and a good book.

I have had a few bad days lately.  A heavy chest, air not quite getting to where it needs to go, and these headaches.  So, I was almost grateful that Bill was sleeping most the day.  I don't know about anyone else, but when I am around people and I don't feel well, I put on a good front and get up and do things I don't feel like doing at all.  So, on days that I can just curl up with a blanket and a book I cherish the day.  It just doesn't happen often. Either Bill is around, or we have Layla or we need to go somewhere.

One of these days I will need to have another talk with Bill to remind him that I just can't do what I used to all the time.  He does SO much anyway that I feel terrible and very guilty when he is up doing laundry and I am sitting.  So I will get up and vacuum or dust, or change the beds.
This is part of the disease I hate the most.  It's watching someone work while I just sit here.  Some days I just sit and tell him I am sorry but I just can't do much today.  But other days even though I am struggling I will still try and match his work.

Priscilla is getting cabin fever and will just run and jump from couch to reclining chair and do circles that way.  It scares the poo out of the other two dogs.  I need to get her out walking, but it's been so cold in the mornings and air quality warnings in the afternoons.  I may have to find a dog walker.  She still is my clown.  For no apparent reason at 4 or 5 a.m. she will sit up and start talking to me.  Kind of a chortling sound.  She will keep it up until I answer her, then quiet down for a few minutes and start up again.  The other morning I just gave up trying to go back to sleep and turned on the early news and sat up and chatted with my dog.  I'll bet not many people can say they do that?!  lol
