It crept in slowly last Sunday night, and has yet to leave. Who knew colds could last so long? Or is this some sort of flu? I'm not sure; all I can say is that I've been feeling nasty for five full days now, which, in my opinion, borders on ridiculous.
But the fact that I feel well enough to write a blog post now says something. Specifically, it says, "You are getting better! This will not last forever!" Phew! I was beginning to wonder.
Yesterday it got to the point where I just couldn't take it any longer. For three whole days I had stayed home from work, and I'd be darned if I was going to spend another full day on the sofa! Believing I felt better, I did manage to work for four and a half hours... and at that point I could not wait to get back to the sofa again. So I stayed home today. It takes baby steps. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.
