To Bed I Said.

The most important time to have a significant other is when you are sick. Yeah sure, it’s nice to have someone around when you’re healthy and having fun, but it’s not really vital.

And it’s not like it’s vital that sick people have a significant other, all I’m saying is that it would be really helpful and appreciated to have someone around fetching things for me, kissing my forehead, cooking me soup, etc.

It’s a great test. Seeing someone at their worst, deciding if their worst is tolerable or if skedaddling would be a better option. If I were someone else I’d flee this situation immediately. Luckily no one is around to watch me sweat out this fever or stare creepily at me while I sleep for 15 hours straight. And I wouldn’t wish it on anyone (though I personally wouldn’t mind it if someone didn’t mind it.)

I went to the Take Care center at Walgreens because I was afraid I had strep throat as the symptoms just sort of sprang on me in the middle of the night. The medical professionals were actually really chill and I’m glad I went there and not urgent care. I do not have strep, yay me. But I do now own this skeleton earrings. Bonus!

How sick do I look? 

Isn’t it great that “sick” is now used as an adjective to describe something badass? So now, I look both sick as in “I’m dying” and sick as in “how badass do I look with skeleton earrings as I lay there dying.”

Ugh. This really puts a damper on my already lack-of-productivity. When I’m not being productive I’m usually as least doing something fun. Though I don’t know why I’m complaining about sleeping all day in between bouts of netflix. Probably because it hurts to do any of it. Mainly it hurts to talk, which is one reason why I’m yammering on via this blog.

So yeah being sick makes me feel vulnerable and a little lonely. Slightly emotional, though I’m trying to avoid all of that by sleeping it off/out. I think I need to go for a walk. If I don’t I’ll just make myself feel even grosser by being in this bed like 30+ hours.

Anyhoo. Such is the cycle of life. Wellness. Sickness. Alive. Dead. Things that happen in between.
