Do you have a truly nasty cold or flu? Does it seem like you’ve been in bed since the Johnson Administration? Glaciers have formed, melted, and reformed again, and you’re still out of it? If so, I can relate. I am in the throes of a vicious bug that has me checking off the list of symptoms on the Sudafed box. Cough, headache (from coughing), wheezy chest, body aches, woozy, etc. The only thing I haven’t been hit with is congestion and fever. Although, those might be next on the menu. Who knows?
I haven’t been this sick in a very long time. It’s kind of like my superpower. Over the past few years, I have developed a workout routine at our local community center that has kept me fit and healthy. My ritual of working out in the gym, hitting the steam room, jacuzzi, and lazy river, has always kept me in tip-top shape. Ironically, due to the Coronavirus, I’ve been avoiding the gym these past few weeks and working out at home. However, since it looks like that little bastard is going to be with us for the foreseeable future, I might as well get back to the gym. Once I kick this cold, that is.
Being sick is the absolute worst. It seems like time slows down, and all you can do is nap or watch TV. If you’re like me, you keep running through a mental laundry list of all the stuff you should be doing. Instead, you’re lying there watching the final season of Game of Thrones, again. What do we say to the god of death? Not Today!
However, from past experience, I know that doing too much, too soon, can backfire on you. It can cause your affliction to last twice as long. That said, my solution is to get comfortable on the couch and find a binge-worthy series on Netflix. Or in my case, write an article about being sick. Your to-do list will always be waiting for you when you feel better. Until then, please pass the cough drops and tissues. Thanks!
