I have fallen ill.
Well, I have recovered, but I wanted to say fallen ill.
I was stricken with a heinous sinus infection and some sort of mucus monster like the kind on the commercials crawled in my lungs & decided to set up shop for 6 days. It was righteous.
It was a wake-up call, though, that I need a registered nurse on speed dial. Do you know how many medical questions I have on a daily basis? For instance, is my heart supposed to palpitate this much? Is the rash on my shin a bug bite or cancer? Do other people’s feet smell this bad? Am I supposed to cry every day?
Perhaps my health issues are too great for just one soul to heal.
