Ride the Painted Pony

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

Well, it’s up and down and up and down, just like a ride on the Merry-Go-Round ponies.. I did start a long post for you, on Sunday, then felt too crummy to finish it. I felt absolutely human on Saturday morning, pretty good a lot of Saturday, and now in the wee hours of Sunday night not so great but good enough to write. I’m feeling good a while, then crummy, then good.

My boss at Foster Center had a bug like this for 10 days over the holidays, and I’m only on day 7. (She gets paid sick days so she could really stay home fully and heal.) Rae had something like it, and she took two weeks to heal because she could not leave athe store. (It was complicated by the fact that she was sick during their inventory week.) Self-employed people approach things one day at a time when sickness arrives.

Hang tight, seat belt on for the landing… (what an odd mixed metaphor… reminds me of that scene in Mary Poppins where the Merry-Go-Round horses start flying away, and as I recall Mary’s horse won some sort of Kentucky Derby-type race… all before computer animation).

This, too, shall pass. It’s a bug. I can’t take ibuprofen or anything like that so it’s “slow is the way to go” these days. I figure that’s OK. So don’t worry ’bout me but if I’m not writing here, I’m flat out on the couch sleeping again. A very good thing.

I’m not unhappy. Brian’s wonderful, I have good music, if I feel good enough I can knit or read or listen to podcasts.

My secret elixr is always a bath. I’ve had two today and they really turn things around. I never feel sick in the bathtub. No matter *how* I felt before the bath.

Now back to the couch for another long nap.

Mom, don’t worry… I’ll be just fine. These things take time but they do go away.
