Round Two

I hate to write another "I'm Sick" post, but that is what my life has been for the last five days. The boring old symptoms of a simple cold. The most annoying symptoms being a low-grade fever and hacking cough. I can't return to kindergarten as long as I have a fever. We don't want kids there. Why would we want a grown-up there if she is running a fever.

I am annoyed by my inability to taste food too. I wish I was one of those sickies that loses weight when they are sick, but I still eat. I never lose my appetite even if I can barely taste the food.

The past four days have not been a total waste since I have completed season two and three of The Office. I am staying home tomorrow. The decision was easy. I tried to put on some clothes other than pajamas, but I had to lay on the bed afterward because it took all my energy to do that. This would not bode well in a kindergarten class.

i am on day 9 of a fever, ear infection, strep throat, sinus infection and cough that is just bad enough to keep me awake. i have watched all of season one and half of season two of grey's anatomy and 5 episodes of season 4 of OZ. i can't taste anything either, so i just keep drinking things like pomagranate juice. i only wear jammies. we still have a lot in common, after all these years.

I see the January 20th post indicates you had been eating healthier for the previous three weeks. Do you think your lack of nutritional intake helped to weaken your immune system and made you more susceptible to this lingering illness you now have?
