I Am Such a Wimp!

I have realized this week that I do not make a very good sick
person. I always thought that I never let sickness get me down and that you drug up and carry on as normal but whatever I have had this week...drugs were just not enough.
These two items have been my best friends this last couple of days and I am ready to break up our relationship we have going. I have been pretty much knocked out unconscious all day but at night I seem to not be able to sleep. When your healthy you completely forget how being sick feels. Well now I remember...being sick stinks!! It took everything I had in me to take a shower the other day and as soon as I finished I needed a nap. This bug has zapped whatever strength I have. I do consider myself lucky that I have older kids that can fend for themselves and they have been wonderful. I take them to school, come home and collapse and then pick them up from school and then inform them that Mom will be upstairs in her bedroom, make yourself some dinner. They are very self sufficient and I appreciate the work that they have been doing around the house to make up for my leave of absence. I forgot how I did sickness when they were young and were fully dependent on me. At least now my job of Mother allows for sick days! Adam has kept his distance from me...something to do with germs or something. He has resigned to sleeping on the futon in the office downstairs because I have pretty much infected our bedroom upstairs. He actually has been missing in action all week! He says he has been busy but I think that he is trying to avoid the "sick" house. Anyways, enough of my complaining....I feel myself starting to mend, I hope. I am going to try to make it to the doctor today to make sure it is not strep. One thing about being sick though is that it makes you realize how blessed you are when you are healthy and feeling good! Well this took about all the strength that I have so I need to go take a nap....just kidding. I think that today I will actually try to get some stuff done around the house. Usually my "list to do" is full but right now my goals for today is to take a shower, do the dishes and see the doctor. Whoooo...what an exhausting day! Ha!

Get better soon...you do too much for me to be sick! I would normally say I'm just kidding, but I'm not! It is not fun to feel like crud, so I hope you are feeling better
