Five Days Off
Five Days Off!!!! I can go out of town! I can pick up extra shifts and work 40 hours! I can clean up my yard and my house! I can do all my assignments ahead of time for the next month in school!
Poor, poor me. What should sneak up on me, and grab me two days before my break? That “under the weather” feeling. I don’t know what caused it. I didn’t feel well enough to work extra hours at my job, in my yard or in my house.
I just felt puny. You know that feeling?
I didn’t feel bad enough to sleep 24 hours a day. But, I didn’t feel well enough to be around other people in any meaningful way.
Playing Keep Away
I stayed away from almost everyone, except for a few errands I felt I had to run. And then, I tried to keep a greater-than-normal distance. And, of course, I have done lots of hand washing with soap and warm water.
So What Have I Done All This Time?
No work in job, house or yard. Lots of sleep. I think I’ve slept about ten hours a night. Sit in a chair. I’ve done some writing for school. And, I’ve washed some glass to use in future glass projects. That’s about it.
No Flu Symptoms
Fortunately, I’ve not had any flu symptoms. I think it must have just been a cold. But, after five days, I’m still in a sub-normal state. I don’t like that. I don’t know how people adjust to chronic illnesses. I have a friend who says that people will adjust to any situation. I guess that’s true. That’s the only way we survive.
I’m grateful that my under-the-weather feeling occurred during time off from work and school. I could have had some problems otherwise. I hate to be sick. 😦 I’m glad this is something transient, and I’ll probably be better in a few more days.
