So in the midst of all the stress of Tuesday
(gma being in the hospital, dad and Janna being in the rollover accident,
finding out one of my friends tried to commit suicide again, finding out 2 of
my former students were killed in a car crash Monday night, hearing the news
that one of my friend’s younger sisters died of cancer) I got sick….icky,
‘head was stuffed to the point that I thought it would explode (and thought
maybe that would feel better than the pressure), used up an entire box of Kleenex,
felt so weak that I could barely move from room to room in my apartment, junk
in my chest so it burns when I cough, whole body is sore’ sick…..
Yeah, so that was the fun of yesterday. I stayed home and didn’t really
do anything except try to rest. I drank more than a gallon of orange
juice, ate several bowls of chicken noodle soup, and just felt ‘blech’. I
think I was hallucinating some of the time, too…..
So now I’m back at work, much better than yesterday but far from ‘well’….I’m probably going to skip church tonight to try to rest more, but will go tomorrow morning since it’s Joshua’s bar mitzvah. Any of you reading this who will be there, you’ll probably want to steer clear of me…I’ll probably stick to the back of the sanctuary and avoid all human contact, as I woudn’t wish this sickness on anyone. I honestly don’t remember being this sick since I was a small child….
Oh, and Jess? If you’re reading this, please tell Caela that I didn’t forget her birthday…I wanted to call her, but that was the day all that other stuff happened, so I was a bit preoccupied. thanks.
