I hate being sick

There is nothing worse than feeling so crappy and aching so bad that the thought of actually getting off the couch to go pee just seems overwhelming. The couch is where I was for the last two and a half days. It started Sunday night at my son's birthday party. I felt suddenly exhausted...There was a slight tickle at the back of my throat I just couldn't get rid of.

I crashed early Sunday night and woke up at 5:30 Monday morning, I couldn't raise my head from the pillow, maybe just a little more sleep was what I needed. I slept till 9 and still felt the same, so I called in sick to work.

Tuesday morning it was the same thing.

I now know what it feels like to be a cat and sleep 16 hours a day. Not bad for an occasional indulgence, for me - I'd rather feel normal and be up and about.

Maybe it was just my old age catching up with me - I turn 41 today. Ugh.

Happy birthday!

Although, geez, that sucks that you're sick. What's up with this spring? Strep is raging through our house (HLS got it this AM. If I fall, it'll be up to the dog to drive us to the pharmacy for antibiotics. And he's got a lead paw!)

Feel better!

Age, smage, I dont even know how old I am most of the time. Last year I thought I was 43 but it turns out I was only 42. Happy Birthday- whatever your age.

Thank you very much for the well wishes.

MM - I'm feeling much better now!

kfarmer - you're right, it's a state of mind. Some days I'm 90 and some still 25. Now, that's a nice birthday present - finding out you're a year younger than you thought you were.
