Many of my friends & co-workers have been sick recently, but this thing my body is doing is totally not me getting sick, BECAUSE: I was already sick over my vacation in October (which sucked!).
Thus, be it resolved, BY DECREE OF GINA, that this tickle in my throat is not me getting sick, and also these weird sudden flu-y aches in my body are also not me getting sick, and the particular flu-y flavor of tired that I am right now is also not me getting sick because I really, really, REALLY cannot afford (financially, energetically, everything-else-wise) to be sick right now…
… but I am also thankful that I have a freezer full of soup and it is probably smart that I just went to buy some orange juice & ice cream at the corner store in case I do, indeed, wake up sick tomorrow? :/
Also, the thing that sucks about chronic illness is that it is chronic, and goddamn, do I wish I didn’t catch everything that flies through the fucking window.
