I have been soooo sick this week!
Its going on 5 days now & I'm STILL suffering, gang!
Truly, this illness is the spawn of the devil.
Who else but Satan would give you a horrific cough AND diarrhea at the same time?
Holy Mother of God, I've never run so fast in all my life.
You'd have thought my clothes were on fire or I was trying to catch a bus!
I thought I had hit upon the right combination of
heavy drugs (legal) & alcohol (cough syrup)
yesterday but the fix was only temporary.
All the symptoms have returned with a vengeance this morning.
I want to be like Ichabod Crane,
the Headless Horseman in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow &
just carry my poor aching head around under my arm.
I'm sure it is no where near as heavy as it feels.
Sleep is out of the question when the other side of the bed
is shaking so heavily from either snoring or coughing.
I should move to the guest room but I'm afraid DH will need me.
Like I'm in any shape to do HIM any good????
I could probably crawl to the phone faster than he could
but with my memory loss lately,
I wouldn't be able to find the #11 if I tried to dial 911.
Excuse me while I go open yet ANOTHER box of tissues.
My garbage can this week will be labeled in RED....Warning: TOXIC BIO-HAZARD!!
What else can I say but "GET YOUR FLU SHOTS!"
I don't know if this is seasonal flu, chicken (bird) or the other white meat....pork (swine) but its awful.
I'm going to miss tennis & Smock & Talk this week as well as my Quilting group.
I wouldn't wish this on my ex-husband let alone risk
giving it to my sewing friends!!
EDIT to say this is a repeat of a blog post I did last year at just about the same time of year.
It still applies ...I always get sick after Thanksgiving! Too many hugs & kisses, I think.
I was feeling too lousy to re-do it much.
I'll be back to posting when I'm less contagious.
