I had plans for the weekend but lethargy ruled. I can't seem to come all the way back from the virus or flu or mega cold or whatever laid me low for the last two weeks of December. No sooner do I start feeling better than I am whacked with a mini-relapse: headaches, sinus infections and general aches and pains. If this is a consequence of being 60-something, I am not liking it. Extra vitamins, extra fluids, naps when possible comprise my treatment strategy. I can't seem to tolerate any leisure activity beyond reading: DVDs annoy me, stitching is beyond my level of concentration, even listening to the radio is an irritation. My temperament is edging toward toxic. I have issued preemptive apologies to my husband and am focusing what energies I have left on behaving in a civil fashion at work.
As my 7th and 8th graders would say: I am sooo done with being sick or even semi-sick.
