When I feel good, everything goes great; however, when I am sick, well things just fall apart. Does anyone know why this happens and does this happen to you? Most times I can suck it up and being sick doesn't bother me. The last week I have had what I thought was a horrible allergy thing in my head. You know the sneezing, stuffy nose, watery eyes and general achy feeling. It is becoming a head cold now.
Not being one to rush off to the doctor, I wait and wait to see if I can heal on my own. I usually give myself three days to get sick, three days to have it and three days to get over it. It has always worked for me in the past. So, I should start feeling better by Saturday. I hope so anyway.
Everything just sorta falls apart when I am not feeling my best. I don't feel like eating because nothing taste good, so I eat the wrong foods. House work falls to the way side, washing clothes, and any and all cleaning. Everything comes to a screeching halt. Why is it that getting older has to be so hard sometimes. Nothing heals as as fast as it used to.
I worked sick on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is homecoming time in east Texas. It is funny that I can work sick, but not exercise sick. I finally took Monday off from work. Missed two days of exercise. My brain is in a fog and I can barely think straight. Add to that not sleeping and you get a cranky sick woman. Argh!
I went back to exercise yesterday, I will be off work till next Tuesday and I have exercise again tomorrow. Why does it hurt so much when you start back to exercise? Did I give myself enough time to be sick? I think so. I hope so. I cooked an eye of round roast last night with rice and green beans. That was the best meal in a while that I have cooked. My appetite is a little better though I can't taste or smell anything.
For me, nothing is worse than being just a little sick. Just sick enough to feel yucky, but not sick enough to go to bed. And why is it that after I have been sick, I feel all hot and sweaty even after just standing and working? I can't stand that feeling. Do any of you get like that after being sick?
I hope none of you are suffering with allergies or a cold. I'm upping my doses of vitamin C and taking my vitamins. I'll talk with you later.
