Sick and Tired... A Weekend Update

Hey lovelies,

Today I'm linking up with Leeann and Sami for the weekend update. ;)


But before I *picture* update you, here's what's up with me which is some sort of an undate too...

A few days ago I experienced dizziness which kind of alarmed me. I haven't felt this dizzy and heavy-headed in months. Did not like it at all. In fact, I hated it. I was about to rip all of my clothes off (yes, really!), and walk around naked if need be just to get rid of that intense heavy feeling. I had to get some bubbly drink somewhere so I could feel a little better but it sure didn't help. I looked at my mom and she just said: "oh girl, you really must have forgotten how awful this air and altitude made you feel in the past!". Thanks mom, really. Yes I did. Well, I didn't but hoped I would not experience it at all. Two weeks into my trip home and baaaam...it hit me. I pulled myself together and tried to smile and breathe regularly.
The feeling I've been experiencing is a combination of a heavy headache, nausea, asthma, and an anxiety attack. How's that for an explanation? It just sucks. I've had it before, saw doctors and was told that this feeling in this area is simply just normal. The only way to get rid of it is to leave. Also, if you were ever wondering...Yes, I did go back to school but also left home to be back at my second or shall we call it third home to not only learn more and change my career but also to feel better and healthier. And, as a matter of fact it did work. I may not work and earn money (and that's another thing I hate at the moment!), but I am feeling better, feeling myself, living life, smiling, studying, learning, growing, and just literally finding my path in life.

So, to really update you on what's been going on...

I have been feeling off for a few days now which kind of ruined my weekend.
BUT, I enjoyed NYE with friends, and thoughout my two weeks here in Europe met a few more friends for a fun getaway, get-togethers which included day trips, lunches and dinners and just silly girl talks. I missed them all. With or without kids. I missed them all. They'll always be part of me and I know I will always be part of their lives. No matter where we are in life. I know I can count on them.
AND, I'm super stoked...two of my friends will be in California in September. Yes, eight months from now but hey it's something to look forward to and I'm super excited!!!

And now I'm sure you wanna see photos?! Without further ado...


 






Really...in no particular order this was my weekend, my NYE and a day trip to the only area close by still covered with snow. YAY. The rest of the weekend I literally spent relaxing, and meeting my friend for a few drinks but it turned out I should not have gone out at all.

Hope your weekend was awesome.

Happy Monday!

I had forgotten you were in Europe at this time! It really sucks that the altitude makes you feel so bad though. Is it possible you will get used to the altitude and feel better?

It looks just lovely where you are!

I am sorry you haven't been feeling well. I get really bad altitude sickness when I visit Colorado, of all places. And you are right, nothing helps....hang in there!

Meghan said...

I hope you feel better! I can imagine that its so frustrating to feel that way in a place you love!

Sam M said...

I totally remember when you struggled with feeling like that before you left for california. I'm glad that it doesn't effect you in California. No snow? Isn't Switzerland supposed to be covered in snow? Well if you miss it when you come back to the US, come visit me. We have lots and two more storms coming in this week.

sorry to hear about those episodes! sounds terrible, and totally understand how that'd knock you off normal for a few days.

lovely pictures!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

These are some seriously stunning photos! That second one and the sunset - absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad that you're having a blast AND feeling better.

Being dizzy and lightheaded is the worst! At least back in CA you won't have to experience that. Hopefully we can meet up!
