Chapter 45 will be coming out in about 46 hours from now. As some of you might have noticed, I was pretty sick this weekend and I was barely able to write or edit anything.
Ugh, I don’t even know. It’s gotta be the winter that’s getting to me? Well, it might have been a whole host of things that I’ve changed now. My toothpaste and toothbrush were both probably ‘bad’. I mean, I got a new thing of the same exact type of toothpaste and it tastes totally different from the old one… probably not a good sign. There was also a bunch of mold growing around where I was keeping the toothpaste, so who knows? My old toothbrush, I had that for like 8 months, and yeah, probably didn’t help.
Then there’s the fact that my room was like covered in cobwebs, spiders and dead cockroaches, along with more dust and lint that should ever accumulate in one place. I cleaned my room and hopefully that fixed some of the problem I was having with my sinuses.
However, the main thing is just that after I’ve been awake for around 12 hours, I start getting sick. Like, my sinuses go crazy, 10 times worse than they are normally, and it gets progressively worse the longer I stay awake. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any decongestants, so I couldn’t sleep and ended up staying awake for around… 38 hours or so. I did eventually manage to use ibuprofen, phenylephrine pills and one of those levmetamfetamine vapor inhalers to subdue my sinuses long enough to get some rest. That was like 2 days ago, but it’s something that happens sometimes…
Basically, I just need to stop staying up so long, because it just makes things so much worse lol. I always think “Ah, I can’t go to sleep yet, I need to finish the chapter!” and then I end up feeling like I’m gonna die and not actually finishing the chapter anyway, because my brain stops working properly rofl.
I guess the point in this post is just a warning to anyone out there who might be like me. Don’t damage your health in order to force yourself to write, it’s something that needs to come naturally.
Also, I might be addicted to Ibuprofen… Like, I find myself thinking “I should really just take some Ibuprofen.” all the time. Of course, that might be because I have cystic acne and I kinda need it to reduce the swelling… If I don’t, I get really bad headaches, have sinus problems, or just generally feel loads of agonizing pain. There’s also the fact that my parents are ‘practicing’ music right above my room, and I have really sensitive ears(Just the noise from my computer fan drives me insane) so you can imagine how I feel when there are like… huge monitors that can be used to play concerts, blasting for hours and hours. Fml, okay, I’m done QQing for now.
