Guess who is sick again? Yup, you guessed it. It wasn’t even that long ago that I complained about being sick. I have been sick so often lately that I think I’m losing count, but I know I have been sick at least 5 times in a 10 month span. I looked back through my Facebook timeline to get an idea of how long I have been well since the last time I was sick and I’m shocked.
Okay, give or take a couple of days. I’m not entirely certain when exactly I stopped being sick, but 3 weeks ago is when I seemed to stop complaining about the ickies. If I’m remembering correctly, I got sick last on the second week of February – right after I got home from my vacation. I was then sick for about 2 1/2 weeks.
Jeremy is sick… sort of. See, he doesn’t get sick like I get sick. He will feel under the weather for 3-5 days and then he’s fine and basically over it. Me? I get it and it lasts for a couple of weeks followed by nearly a week of residual coughing.
I don’t understand. I know I’ve said it like a dozen times on this blog, but I swear that I do not get sick like this. I get sick once, maybe twice a year. Why can I not stay well!?
I take a multi-vitamin every day. I get as much rest as I possibly can. It’s not always easy because of how my sleep disorder works, but I do my best. I eat fruits and vegetables. I wash appropriately and I do my best to keep my hands clean at work.
So how is it that I am sick again!? I’m open to suggestions. Yes, I know… I need to go to the doctor. I will when I have the time – honest.
