Why do people say sick as a dog, anyway? Most of the dogs I've been around have been quite healthy, and even if they eat something that disagrees with them, they seem to get it out of their systems and bounce back quickly.
I, however, am not sick like that. I seem to have a low resistance lately and then a hard time coming back. I caught a bug about a week ago and it won't let go. It's down in my chest, rattling away and making me cough. I have been resisting seeing a doctor -- don't want to take the time to haul myself there just to be told, "It's a virus. Rest, drink plenty of fluids. There's nothing we can do." Since rest has been sketchy lately -- just got back from a trip to the West Coast, something I don't recommend doing when you have a head cold -- I've been doing my best to catch up. And drink fluids. I still have to work, but I'm working from home today.
It's funny how I still want to eat sometimes even when I have no appetite. I had a Ghiardelli bar in my suitcase that tempted me. I had half of it just because. Sigh.
I just read Frances's post. "Would I date me?" Right now the answer would be a resounding no thanks. I seem a little too sad and high-maintenance. I might tell me I would call, but I'd lose my number.
