Oh, it Got Me!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 1:34 am 36 comments

EKG monitor*clutches chest and falls to the ground*  For weeks I’ve been just a little more tired than usual.  I felt like I couldn’t keep up with my daily routine.  And now it’s come to this.

First my daughter caught it then I did.  Caught what?  I don’t know… whatever it is – I don’t like it.  It comes with headache, weakness, cough, and slight congestion.  I think I feel a sore throat coming on.

Is it the swine flu, bird flu, regular flu, or just a nasty cold?  All I know is that I spent two hours thinking how much I wanted a glass of water but was too tired to drag myself across the house to get it.  My head was pounding and my eyes aching.  My very teeth hurt.

Over the next few days I will be accepting soup and sympathy.  Thank you very much.

    Sorry to hear you’re feeling so lousy, but if it helps here’s a big dose of SYMPATHY for you. Get well soon. Chocolate always helps, it won’t make you better but it will satisfy you…

      Thank you so much. Unfortunately, the very thought of my favorite foods makes my stomach spin. You know I’m not faking it when I can’t eat chocolate.

      Thanks Sudharsana. It’s such an inconvenient time to be sick with so many school projects due. Now Arvind is at home too.

    Enjoy some lounging around! Maybe this is your body’s way of making you take a break.

      Thanks Hannah. I’ve definitely been lounging but I can’t say I’m enjoying it. For the first two days it felt good to be in bed. Now I’m getting a little tired of it.
