This sick business is for the birds. I have no energy, I barely rested today (not without trying - I found it difficult to), I'm achy, I have zero energy and I only breathe out of one nostril. Needless to say I'm getting a little cranky. I caved and ordered pizza (thanks, MK ;). Yes, with regular (non GF) crust. Yes, with cheese (dairy). Don't poke the bear.
I called in for tomorrow's shift and will take it off to rest, hoping I'm well enough for Sunday's shift. Thank goodness I banked some vacation hours; I'll have to use them.
After my pizza comes, I'll get my butt back to bed and force myself to try and get some sleep. I'm going to sit back with a Band of Brothers episode (running through the series, on Ep. 7 now). I love that they're short enough; I don't have to pop in a 2 hr movie. Very convenient (if I finish this, JK, and I'm still sick, I may need to come borrow MASH).
Oh, per a suggestion from a friend I got (er, a friend ran errands for me today for some necessities) NAKA's Vital Liquid Greens. This is apparently power-house stuff and will start taking it in the morning. Anyone else have experience with it?
Y'know, I haven't been sick like this in a year... maybe two. I have this belief that while it's not necessary to get sick often, especially if you have a good immune system, it may benefit one to get sick once in a while/rarely. How else does one fend off communal sickness/illness? Is my thinking flawed? What do you think? I find when I don't get sick for a while and then do... it REALLY hits me. I remember reading this article once that this guy hadn't been sick in years. I thought.. good for him. How can I compete with that? So.. should we catch the odd common cold and build up our immune system or try and stave them off as much as we can?
