CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE, week ‘whatever’
I didn’t log last week’s adventure because I didn’t have energy or life in me or thoughts. So here it is, now:
For the past two years, I’ve been so busy in NYC that my body has learned how to multi-task during my hangovers into illnesses (fevers, sinus congestion, etc).
I have to admit, it’s a weird superpower to have.
My body says to me: “oh, you’re not going to leave your bed anyway, so now in addition to having a piercing headache/earthshattering nausea…. you also have a fever. If you won’t give me time to recharge, I’ll MAKE YOU RECHARGE.”
But lately I haven’t been drinking away my stress, so my body was left no choice but to TAKE ME DOWN.
I had a 3 day fever last week. That’s not new. I almost failed french because of a 3 day fever. But what is new is remembering how HELPLESS I feel when I am sick.
I whine more that a trust fund hipster that doesn’t yet have an iphone 6.
"How do I even GET food?" actually crossed my mind.
It’s a lesson learned. I’m never getting sick again. If you see me even thinking about getting sick, please remind me how much it sucks. It’s not worth it. No matter how many late nights in my childhood we spent together cuddled under a blanket with a cold wet towel on my head—- It is a bully that doesn’t deserve my time.
