Too Sick

I am only posting because I don't want anyone to worry needlessly about me. I am still sick as sh**.

I have a fever, so I probably don't make sense, but the one thing I have to say is "I miss myself." I want to be the me I see the evidence of all over this place. The me who leaves coffee cups with lipstick on the rims, the me who has running shoes by the bed - with the cutest little socks you ever saw, the me who runs through this place like a tornado - always in a hurry, always running late. This is now my fourth day without running. I wouldn't even consider going outside and walking right now. In fact, I think I might should go to the doctor, but I have not got the strength to do that. I feel BAD.

I am going back to bed. Thanks for all of your well-wishes. You guys and gals are wonderful.

When we became alcoholics, crushed by a self-imposed crisis we could not postpone or evade, we had to fearlessly face the proposition that either God is everything or else He is nothing. God either is, or He isn't. What was our choice to be?" -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p.53

Oh MC you go and rest up. It must be going around. One of the managers I work with got ill and left yesterday (things coming out of the front end) and at 3:00 am this morning Mitch was puking too. What is happening?

At least when you get you back you will have a deep appreciation for your healthy state. (hope that did not get too confusing)

Ok, back to your rest.

I know what choice you made, MC. It's all to obvious.

You are taking antibiotics, right? The Dr had to add cortisone to knock my bronchitis out. It cuts down on the inflamation. Add to that some Mucinex to break up the nasty mucous and you should be well soon.

See, even when you're delirious, you still make sense!

And you're still reaching out, sharing your experience, strength and hope. Thanks so much for just being you, (((MC))).
