It's Called Recovery

I am no longer sick. Well, I'm good enough at least 95% healthy. Two nights ago I went to bed at 7:30 pm. Laundry has to be done. I could run more. I took this afternoon off. I feel so lazy. Not to mention I have been less productive at work than I desire. I'm just beat. I am tired. Just finished reading an article (http://nyti.ms/ZtzpIw) about the cold and flu season. Surely something mentioned in there is what I had. Eleven days of sickness? Four consecutive days off of running?

I write this with my thumbs on my phone as I lay on my couch covered in a blanket at 6:30 pm. Tonight is going to be an early night too.

The challenges are mental and emotional more than physical. I'm in an explicit mood tonight, I suggest you read the article linked above. This sickness is so unusual to me because it's been two weeks since I started being sick and I'm still tired! I had a flu shot, probably had the whooping cough shot too, despite sleeping so much the last three weeks I might just be in bed by 7 pm. It's like the mental effects of the cold have lasted past the physical effects.

Wash your hands and pray these diseases don't escalate.
