A Sitting Duck

Yesterday at about 4:15 p.m., I felt it. Chills. Body aches. Horrible headache. And I thought, here it comes.

I haven't been sick since last February. I kid you not. Yes, I've been sidelined by my tension headaches which sometimes inevitably affect my stomach. But as far as colds or anything of that sort, I've been blessed to stay healthy. I credit that to my lifestyle change - eating good and exercising. But I knew it wouldn't last forever.

Last night I barely made it home. I trudged into the house, made myself some soup, ate it, and promptly crawled under a blanket on the couch. I can't believe how fast this stuff hit me.

So today, I'm at home. I've already taken a long nap which wasn't very restful seeing as how I had very weird dreams and felt like I was awake the entire time. Very strange. I also watched Captain Correlli's Mandolin, which I'd never seen before, and really enjoyed it. Hubby brought me lunch and my dog has been keeping me company.

But I tell ya - I still feel like I've been hit by a truck. My body aches, my throat hurts, I'm sneezing, and my stomach isn't all that interested in settling down. I'm also feeling quite week. A trip downstairs is a major effort.

Anyway, no editing done last night. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I'm sorry to hear you're sick Melissa. Take good care of yourself and get better soon.

  2. Sorry you are ill. I got stuff to talk to you about, I got ideas on your submission, so look for me this weekend.

  3. Feel better soon, Melissa, and rest well!

  4. Hope you get to feeling better, Melissa. Rest up this weekend!

  5. Urg, it got me, too (sneeze, sniffle). Feel better soon!

  6. Oh, no -- I hate the flu! Hope you get well quickly, Melissa!

  7. Get well first. The page will wait.

  8. feel better fast

  9. Oh I hope you feel better soon! I'm getting sick too. Though mine is more like a hacking cough and fuzzy head. The cough part - yuck.

  10. Sending much sympathy your way. I don't get sick often either (knock wood) and somehow that makes it worse whenever I do.

    Hope you're well again soon.


I love to hear from you!
