A perfectly good sunshiny day wasted…

A perfectly good sunshiny day wasted…

A downfall directly related to working with the public.

Well one of them…is they make you sick.

Taking people’s money isn’t all it’s chalked up to be. Seriously, because not only do you take their money, you take their diseases too. I went to work yesterday and nearly didn’t make it through the day, there was several times when I just wanted someone to shoot me.

I stayed home today. I woke up this morning, not only with the mind bending cramps that I had all day yesterday, but also with the headache from hell.

I finally feel a little better now, but I am pumped full of drugs…drugs that I didn’t until after I downed them…read the instructions that I was only supposed to take one, not two. I don’t even care…even my migraine medication didn’t get rid of the headache before that.

So now I am just mad.

That I have wasted two days feeling like shit.

That I don’t wash my hands enough.

That I don’t use the hand sanitizer supplied by my boss enough.

That I don’t know who the bastard is that gave me this plague. I can usually blame my kid or someone I know. Not this time, it was right out of the blue and brutal.

What really pisses me off, is the fact that I am taking my damn vitamins, every day. I have broken a Donna record. Never in my life have I been so faithful. Every single day.

vitamins

And still.

Sick.

I eat kale for breakfast for crying out loud…

I don’t even know what more I could possibly do to protect myself from all the damn bugs that fly around out there.

I am not at all thrilled with the sleeping most of the day thing, I hate wasting time that could be put to better use. I suck at being sick. All I can think about when I am laying in bed dying is all the things that I actually should be doing instead.

You know, things like working. Laundry. Vacuuming. Cooking.

Just feeling normal.

I hope my body is going to be totally back to normal tomorrow. Cramps and headaches a distant memory.

Because I just don’t have time for this crap, I have things to do and a life to live.

It’s already too short to waste it.

So here’s to a healthier tomorrow…

And feeling good enough to shower and stuff.

Have a great Wednesday xox

    You eat kale for breakfast? There’s where you’re going wrong. There isn’t sufficient poison in your system to kill the germs. You should start pounding some frosted flakes in the morning, they’ll tighten you right up.

    Hang in there, Princess!
    No one is more sympathetic to the plight of the service worker than yours truly. You will rise above!

    Ahhhhh – I see what you mean – yes, I sympathise!

    I felt worse rapidly after I got up. Did the school run IN MY PJs and dressing gown, which I have NEVER done before!

    Get well!
