Being Sick Stinks!


Now I know that there are many people who have serious illness - I can't even imagine what that might be like. I'm talking about being down with the flu or in my case an upper respiratory infection, infected sinuses and of all things an ear infection. How in the world I even got an ear infection I'll never know. It's not just the overall terrible feeling that is so bad - it's like your moving at top speed one day and the next you are literally flat on your back. You can't go to work - you can barely hold your head up. Then it's off to the doctor's for some relief that doesn't come as fast as you think it should - yes it comes but, first you have to not be able to breath for a day or 2 - have to sleep sitting up - then you lose your voice oh and when you think the worst is over you begin coughing - haha. No joke. So here I have been since - well really it all began last Saturday -but, I've been down for the count since Monday after my visit with the doctor. Thursday is upon us and still no voice and no real energy to speak of and of course missing yet another day of work. Thankfully I have wonderful co-workers who totally cover for me. So thank you to all who have been so patient with me through this miserable time. I know that I am THE worst patient in the world. Everyone have a great day - stay well -- WASH YOUR HANDS!
