I guess it’s about time that all this stess/running around/sleep deprivation has caught up with me. I am officially sick. I have a sore throat, have sneezed a million times today and am feeling feverish. It started on Friday– I had reported to you all yesterday that I had a terrible headache and stomach ache on Friday. When I woke up Saturday, I felt OK but I could tell my stomach was acting up and that I was more tired than usual. I went to the gym to complete a ten miler, and while I did it, my body felt sluggish the whole time and my stomach was cramping up the entire run. By the time I left the gym, the runny nose and sneezing started. While I was functional yesterday, I certainly felt off, and I had to keep a box of Kleenex with me the whole day. Now, I am just tired, run-down and feeling crappy.
I hardly ever get to a stage of feeling “full-fledged” sick to the point I can’t go to work, and I am definitely not at that stage thankfully. And I certainly hope the worst has come and gone. I know my body is rebelling from the hideous schedule I am making it endure. Everyone’s different, and some folks out there probably think my schedule is nothing to complain about; however, for me, it is just too much. Waking up before five everyday, working, studying, trying to fit in errands and staying up late to read for my classes is basically a recipe for sickness for me. Today, I hope to chill out a bit and truly take it a bit easier. I don’t think anything is going to help me but just some good, old-fashioned relaxing. And maybe some apple picking will soothe my soul as well. . .
What’s your best “what to do when you’re sick” advice?
