What a week this has been! I’ve been fighting some sort of head virus or something. Suffered through my first migraine in over 30 years, kept a very small headache for a week, low fever for 3 days, a leaky eye and a slightly unsettled stomach. Doesn’t sound fun. It wasn’t or hasn’t been.
At this point, I think I’m on the upside and beginning to feel better and somewhat energetic. My fever has been slowly dropping about 1/10th degree per hour this afternoon. My leaky eye has slowed tearing. The upset stomach is gone. I’m actually enjoying the sunlight and the glistening snow I can see thorough my window. I may get dressed, yet, today.
I learned a few years ago that when I am feeling puny, the best thing for me to do is…nothing. I’ve been doing a lot of that the past three days. That and drinking lots of fluids and staying mostly on the BTD, except for my Brown Cow yogurt. I love that yogurt cream on the top and it always settles my stomach (even if I am an 0).
Several people have told me they suffered through this virus and most seemed considerably sicker than I and for much longer time. A couple were even hospitalized. Nonetheless, I don’t ever enjoy being forced to slow down and really get some additional rest. I enjoy keeping busy with all my activities. The past few days my husband has done the ferrying and errand running and cooking and… I guess having to slow down a bit hasn’t been all that bad.
