Watch: Forever 21
Alright, so cold #5 feels to be on its way out. Kinda. I have now officially been sick for 3 months straight. After $400 worth of tests, my doctor’s official medical opinion is that I am “unlucky.” My white blood cell count is normal. I don’t have whooping cough, tuberculous, or pneumonia. She doesn’t even know how to test for Cryptococcus gatii and says I probably don’t have it. She said there’s no reason to test for a yeast intolerance (thank you for that suggestion, Dusk! I am still suspicious tho…). So after 5 colds, plus bronchitis, plus an eye infection, pytiriasis roasacea, and laryngitis twice, apparently I’m completely a completely healthy person who just keeps getting sick for no reason. What the heck’s wrong with me???!
I kind of want to start naming each bout of illness with cocky, blue-blooded names, like “Thurston Marshall Laryngitis II” or “James Preston Rhinovirus V” or something. Blech. I’m so OVER being sick!! (And to think I was over it at cold #3…..*sigh*)
So I saw a similar paper bag on a streetstyle shot (probably on JakandJil) and decided to DIY it in a video tutorial. Yes, I wrote “video“!! Will be sharing soon once I edit it together.
Haha – PSYCH! There’s nothing in it! A bag that defeats its purpose, perhaps.
I’m liking my DIY Ann Demeulewhatever boots very much…but the elastic shoelaces are very uncomfortable. I will have to change them out for regular shoelaces! And the last time I posted these, one helpful reader also known as Professor Shoelace (!) noted that I was tying them the wrong way…which I am…here’s the right way to tie them. I’ve checked out Ian’s Shoelace Site before, specifically for lacing shoes in multiple interesting ways….seriously, this site is the resource for shoelace-related-stuff on the web!
Hope you guys are having a great week…I got out of bed at 3:30 PM today, and now the day’s over. I have no idea what day it is anymore. I get the feeling there was something (some hundred things) that I was supposed to take care of today. Ugh.
hmmm… I don't know hon… it's wise to remain suspicious.
It's just too weird. There has to be a reason. Our bodies don't get sick just because we're “unlucky”. That “unluckiness” stems from something.
…hope somehow you get an answer.
May I just say that even though I know you've been sick, you look absolutely gorgeous!!!!
…LOVE this outfit and oh the shoes are genius! LOVE the nail polish!!!!!!!
big hugs beautiful!
Love all of your diys. And I hope you feel better. PS I love the new layout too. 😀
Ok now, this is just a suggestion, but it seems to work for me. Back in 2001, I moved into a new place. I then started getting a cold about once every month and a half. Seriously, I must have had about 9 colds that year, with a bad one that actually turned out to be pneumonia. So I read somewhere that perhaps the air in the house was too stagnant, and I bought one of those two way fans–you know, one where the air blows in on one side, and out on the other. Since then, I've only had 2 colds in the last 8 years! P.S. Doctors suck and don't really care about their patients.
Maybe you should try to see an immunologist since you keep getting sick. They know what they're looking for and have more treatment options at their disposal.
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog 🙂
I've been to your blog before and I must say, I love your sense of fashion, you can pull off anything.
Your outfit is so awesome and it totally reminds me of this outfit that I totally fell in love with a few weeks ago:
Those sweatpants are super cute, I wish I had a pair! The shoes are jawdropping, I LOVE them 🙂
Yes, saw that bag as well, it's genius. I do love your nails though, all the colors complement each other so well.
Feel better soon. Maybe it's mold? Or stress? Have you tried anything to boost your immune system? Maybe that's all you need. 🙂
Love the DIYs as well. Will definitely be coming back soon.
Paperbag……its to cool to be true….
@Dusk: Thank you for your kind words and support! My dr. seems to think it's because I have a 4-yr old at home that I keep getting so sick…though it just seems very strange, as you say.
@Diana: Thank you! I went online and bought an air purifier as to your suggestion. I get the feeling I wouldn't be so sick if I actually had a job and was leaving the house on a regular basis – almost every day for me is spent at home, so I was thinking it was something environmental.
@Kelly: Thanks! (That layout took me the better part of 2? 3 weeks? I'm still tweaking it but I'm glad you like it!!)
Thank you all for your feedback, comments, and well wishes!
@Sarah J: That's a good idea! It's the next on my to-do list…
@daer0n: Thanks for your comment! I remember seeing some of your comments on here before…you're always so sweet:-) That blog you linked to is really interesting…going to be checking it out more!
@MCR: Thanks for your comment – yes, the idea of that bag is great, though maybe not so practical. Still, I love it! I am definitely thinking that me being sick has less to do with something that's wrong with me physically, and it may be more related to stress, depression, and something environmental. I've tried all sorts of things to boost my immune system…yoga, eating only raw vegetables, eating only organic vegetarian, drinking green tea, walking lots, drinking immune-system-boosting smoothies, vitamin C supplements…Mold is another possibility too, considering how damp it is here almost year-round. And thanks for the link to your blog – I just love it and have added to my reading list!
Thnx for all your comments, ladies!
Hehe this is so cute. I love that even though we all appreciate Chanel, it's still ok to have a laugh about it every once in a while.
