Today's gift

I used to be really good at journaling. In high school I wrote almost every day, and I was fairly regular my first few years of college. But since about 2005 (coincidentally, the year the Romgi came back from his mission and we started dating) I’ve been horrible. Every few months, at best. (It’s horrible for me. I don’t mean to imply that every few months is bad in itself.)

But I might be able to do something like this:

Misery!

Last night around 5 my back started to hurt a little. Within an hour it ached so much I could hardly move. Taking some Tylenol helped, but I got a headache, I was stuffed up, and my throat started swelling. I put the Bwun to bed and then went to bed myself, hoping I’d feel better in the morning.

Instead, I woke up about every hour, and in the middle of the night I had a high fever. I think (though I haven’t confirmed with the Romgi) that I was delirious. The Romgi suggested I take a hot bath, and I’m sure the water was hot but within minutes it felt lukewarm. It did help, though, and I was able to go back to sleep until the Bwun woke up in the morning.

I hate the flu!

Luckily a friend picked the Bwun up and watched him for several hours so I could rest, and the Romgi came home early from school so I had help. But I sure wish I felt better already!
