I felt so destroyed today, starting with not wanting to get out of bed!!! RHR 5-10 beats above my normal range, my head feels heavy, and I just felt like laying in bed a good portion of the day with some good podcasts. I did sleep enough though, which is good at least. No fever, so I don't think I'm sick (but checking the "sick" flag bc feels very similar to being sick. and got categorized as "stay home" in ucsd's symptom screener). I did sit outside for a Zoom chat with a prospective grad student along with one of my labmates, which was nice! Anyone living somewhere other than Southern California probably would've worn a light jacket, but I brought a down sleeping bag, and it was pretty cozy! I also made it to the close grocery store, where I got 2 boxes of frosted mini-wheats, and I ate a whole bowl :) Feels much easier than however much braunschweiger/oysters/prune juice I'd have to eat to get the same 18mg, but I should probably still eat the animal stuff at least anyway. A little frustrating for the iron stuff that without moving around much I also wasn't too hungry, so I didn't take as much advantage of my fancy new food as I could have otherwise.
Took a total rest day.
achilles: 0 pain
foot: 0 pain
headache: maybe a different kind; dull, hurts more when I move/lean over; none of the buzzing/fluttering headache feeling, and no eye pain. I can feel my pulse in my chest/neck/head when I lay down, but I wouldn't call that part of the headache.
allergy/rash: still here, not getting worse at least I think.
