Breathing New Life Into My Psyche

I'm trying to get back in the flow, after my month of being variously ill. But it's hard. I get tired too quickly. And my mind feels like it's moving at half its normal speed. Then again, I'm writing this the day that I've decided to take a break from caffeine because my stomach is such a mess from all those anitbiotics. If nothing else, it's instructive to get powerful urges for things like Coca-Cola and Ritter Sport chocolate squares. See, my body tries to trick my mind into consuming caffeinated products other than coffee. Right now it's telling me that a bite of chocolate will kick the higher faculties into gear. I'm going to go play some basketball for the first time in weeks in the hopes that the exercise and the accompanying endorphin rush will save two birds with one net.

The doctor's office just called, before I could post this. Turns out that I am positive for Valley Fever. They want me to get a chest x-ray. I'm pretty sure that it was back in the fall of 2000 that I had it, but they need to check for that special lung cavity that Valley Fever sometimes causes. I also have to go see the ear, nose, and throat doctor to see whether I have to have my tonsils out. Go me! I'd better get down to the JCC and hoop before I find out that I'm further incapacitated.
