On the mend

I've been sick all week. Coughing till my ribs ache, head thick and heavy, skin clammy and shivery, unable to decide whether it's hot or cold, knowing only that it's damp. Yesterday was so bad I contemplated calling the doctor, but overnight something changed, my breathing got easier, sleep deeper. I stayed home again today since my daughter was going to be home, but I worked on stories and attended a meeting via speaker phone. I'm feeling weak again all of a sudden. I think I'll head to bed now. Tomorrow my son comes home and the world outside my door will reclaim me. Goodnight, sweet friends.

  1. Please go to the doctor if you're not feeling better tomorrow. The feeling weak thing has me nervous.

  3. 7I know the feeling after being sick for over two weeks myself. Do get to the doc, there may be some good relief for nagging symptoms.

  9. Oh, feel better soon. Illness makes me so melancholy and frail, I have to work to stay focused on the baby steps of getting better: rest, fluids, rest....
    and of course chicken soup :) I'd bring you some if I could.

  11. Thank you, dear friends. I'm up and around, still with the cough but definitely mending. I think my body just wanted me to lie down for a minute and take a few quiet days to process the magic happening all around me.
