Finally Getting Better.....

Well, I'm pretty sure I'm on the backside of whatever it was I had. My fever is gone, I'm not coughing all night long, and the aches and pains have pretty much subsided,

I haven't been this sick since 2009 when I moved in here, so whatever it was really clobbered me.

I'm talking "stay in bed for 7 days" sick. Since last Saturday, I wasn't out of bed for more than a couple of hours at a time, and that was mostly to go to the bathroom, get something to drink, or do a quick email check.

And I was finally able to eat some soup last night, and not have it exit me within 45 minutes.

On the "plus" side of the ledger, I haven't had a cigarette since last Sunday, and haven't had any cravings for one, either.

I guess when you're sick enough to need 18 hours of sleep a day, your body isn't thinking of getting a nicotine fix!

Helluva way to finally stop smoking, but I guess I'll take it.......


  1. I'm glad you're recovering, sir, however it evinces.

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better, sounds like you had it way worse than I did and I wouldn't wish what I had on anybody.

    Hell of a way to quit smoking and a hell of a way to lose weight too. There is some nasty stuff going around this year.

  3. Yeah, it just totally knocked me in the dirt for a full week.

    I didn't get a flu shot this year, as I'd read, and the Doctor's office confirmed, that there were multiple strains going around this year, and the shot only protects against ONE.


Keep it civil, please....
