and i have a lot of them.
in my working career i have only been on sick leave twice. one was a stomach bug that didn’t allow me to walk upright. instead i was in so much pain and with such a cramped up stomach that i walked like one of those old grannies, you know, round back, almost toppling over.
the second time was when i was hit by a firecracker and grew a third butt cheek resulting in me not being able to sit. with an office job that condition is not compatible.
the third time is now. i can’t believe this is even happening but i was put on sick leave for a super strong cold. i already missed a day of work because of this, thinking my usual treatment with tea and rest would do. nope. it only got worse. so i had no choice but go to the doctor today. not only did i look ugly and absolutely unpresentable, i felt it more than any of the days before.
the cold is not affecting my lungs thankfully but rather nicely stuck between throat and eyes. i do not have a fever (thank goodness) so with the fairly light medication i got i believe i will sleep this one off. i already took a 4 hour nap and am basically ready for the next. i am that exhausted.
good thing the baptism of my godchild is this sunday. there will be plenty of pictures taken and i will look horrible in all of them. joy!
