It's tough trying to recap a month of basically nothingness, nothingness which seems like nothingness to other people. That nothingness kept me pretty busy.....busy enough not to update my precious online diary.
So here goes.....installment number 1 of nothingness.
I never get sick. My Sweetie visits many people, and brings home all kinds of bugs, and somehow I don't seem to trap any of them in my system. But about a month ago, I nabbed a big one.
Previous to getting the BUG, I had a particularly difficult Pump class. It left me quite tired and wasted. I chalked it up to not eating enough during the day. That evening, however, I developed a fever, accompanied by aches. I remember eating my dinner in my jammies, and feeling like a sick cow.
The next day was a slow day at work. I was able to work, but my head felt like a pillow, and I ended up taking a couple of naps during the day. The fever was now learning to live quite peacefully within me, and was taking up residence. That evening, and the following four days, I was down and out with the flu.
I knew it was a hard one, because it took all of my energy to type a small email to my team saying that I was not going to be at work. You see, working from home allows one to work even when they are sick, so if I sometimes feel under the weather, I can usually still operate at work. This time I could not. I was done. Spent.
Even when the BUG subsided, and I was on the mend, it was still a drain for about a week trying to get tasks done.
Anyway. that was that. My health returned to normal. I was able to get back to my regular gym routine, and life was good again.
