How to know when I am getting sick.

Tuesday, January 23, 2007
First, early morning at the office and I realize my back is starting to hurt. It never hurts.

As the morning progresses, so does the pain. I take a Tylenol.

I begin, throughout the afternoon, to feel ache-y, and the clear need to remain near a washroom.

My head isn't full and my sinuses are mostly clear, but I sense a growing dis-ease, deep within the recesses of my body.

I begin to drag myself home, after work.

Not hungry, repulsed by food, muscles tense, then releasing, from my head to my toes.

My back hurts as does my head. My breathing grows heavy, labored even.

And I know I'm getting the flu.

How do I know this?

Cause I want my blankie.


  1. Well, lay low and get well. Busy week is not a good time to get sick - but then it never is a good time I guess.

    Praying for you. And the ones around you who have to run and get you your blankie.

  2. Oh my. One week ago I needed several blankies, in fact, I couldn't get enough blankies. May God provide you with the heat of a thousand suns and enough hot tea to warm your deep innards.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
