I have been sick for over a week now! It started last Tuesday! A fever blister (those are usually a sign of major exhaustion) and I just felt tired all around. The good thing was that I was on a break from college so the timing was not too bad. I had a lot of things planned (painting the bathroom, catching up with friends and books, etc.) and I was a bit frustrated that I had to cancel on everyone and everything but it was obvious that I needed to rest. So I just laid on my couch and spend some time with Dexter Morgan!
Came Saturday, I figured I had recovered from my mini flu and I started doing a little too much. But by Sunday afternoon, I was coughing like an old lady and I also had a runny nose. Now the timing was getting critical since the winter semester was to start on Monday. I dragged myself to class on that day but by Tuesday, I already started skipping some and I did not even bother getting up this morning! I even went to see a doctor who said I had the flu and a rhinopharyngitis. The prognosis: it is going to take a few more days before I start getting better! So in the meantime, I guess I will just keep company to my couch a bit longer, and rest, and forget that all I want to do is go for a run!
