RHPS: I'm going home

My health timing sucks

For the last week I have had a fever that has had me alternately writhing sickly under blankets or sweating away even though I've taken off all my possible clothing. (Yes, apparently I did just actually describe to you all what a fever is as it's an unknown word not often heard in the English language.)

Earthquakes continuing and news reports have not been helping the fact that I have been occasionally delusional. (Although my delusions mostly seemed to consist of thinking that fairy royalty was coming to take me away which is the same fever-invoked terror that I had when I was veryvery ill one night in Scotland five years ago. It's good that my fevers are consistent.)

We have water though. It's beautiful and amazing and showers- Oh god, I cannot even begin to explain how beautiful it is to have a shower again especially after my previous talk of fever-sweatiness.

I am getting back towards wellness, I think. I'm still sort of sort throaty and headachy but I haven't had to change my clothing layers in hours nor have I fallen down. WIN/WIN for Circe.

(Christchurch is not so much win but I don't want to talk about that today. I haven't even checked the news feeds since this morning. But I'm sure to do exactly that now that I've reminded myself.)
