Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Out of the Frying Pan. . .
I was feeling pretty good about my body's stoutness, after managing to weather what felt like a pretty bad virus. But now I see people far stouter than I looking really, really sick and, after a night of particularly brutal coughing, I find myself in a state of paranoia because my lymph nodes are huge and the inexplicable headache I had this earlier this week has returned in an entirely explicable form. Or is that just my anxiety speaking? I sure wish things would calm down for a bit so I could stabilize at least some of the sharply canted elements in my life. That classic line, "Stop the world, I want to get off!," has never felt more appropriate.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I'm not at my best either. When my headache arrived yesterday, I thought it was explicable--tied to the previous night's marathon insomnia, which had been ever so much fun. But although I slept I still felt lousy any time I woke up in the night, and this morning. My neck also aches--and although J's back is finally improving, he has a sore throat. So we must have caught something. Not something as aggressive as your virus, though. I'm sorry. I hope things ease up a bit for your soon.

I hate that thing where I can't tell if I'm really that sick or if maybe, aside from the symptoms, it's all in my head. That's the anxiety that got me into doctors' offices this year - & it turned out most of it was in my head.

I wasn't thinking "Stop the world, I want to get off," but I guess my thought amounts to pretty much the same sentiment: "Just leave me alone!" heh.

Hope you get to feeling better soon.
