It’s ten days since my last post and I’m finally feeling better. Allow me some caution for not speaking too definitively; this thing has boomeranged twice before. Despite the beautiful weather, I spent the day indoors sleeping, cooking, lazing about, hoping to consolidate my recovery.
This is the second cold this year that’s lasted weeks and put me in bed for days. I’ve only had colds this severe for the last few years, and it seems like I’m not the only one. Are there worse strains of cold running around? Is our environment too toxic for bodies to work normally? Is it just the “getting older” situation?
Tomorrow I’ll get out and enjoy the nice weather with VB. She’s down for a conference we’re both attending on Monday–perfect timing since my contract is wrapping up in June.
