I should specify. Specifically, I mean me being sick. Even more specifically, me being sick while unemployed.
There’s no upside to being sick when you’re unemployed. No rest, or relaxation, just all the downside of not being able to breathe and feeling crappy. I’ve been sick for the last few days. Not super sick, but sick enough that it’s annoying. I’ve been taking care of myself and it still isn’t going away. Almost makes me think all these traditional remedies don’t really work.
Some of the negatives of my illness are self imposed. I’ve been avoiding certain foods in an effort not to coat my throat in sugar, like ice cream. And I’ve been avoiding Lauren, in an effort not to ensicken her. (I know that’s not a word, and that there is a perfectly good word for what I mean, but ensicken sounds like a good word to me)
So far it doesn’t appear that I’ve ensicked anyone around me, so I hope it stays that way and I can get over this soon. I’m planning to go over the mountains in a few days, wouldn’t want to allow this virus/bacteria to spread so far.
Being sick sucks.
