a few things

this is going to serve as a reality check for bare with me.

I got sick almost 2 weeks ago and I am still not feeling 100%...went to the doctor yesterday and he says "well, it is a virus and you must be is nothing other than that so just give it time..." now if any of you know me, which a few do, being sick is not my favorite thing to say the least. I am not saying it is anyone's favorite thing, i am just saying that for me, i go a little cuckoo for coco puffs when sick. i start feeling really frustrated and say things like "why bother ever trying to be healthy if i am just going to get sick?" or...."When I feel better I am going to be president of the united states and really appreciate my health"...not really, but you know what i getting sick serves as that small reminder to slow down, take it easy, practice patience, take time to think, and not worry too much about the every day things...just get better and be good to yourself.

so here i go...a small pep talk for sicko.
