So how's your holiday season going so far? As you can probably tell from the title of this post, mine has been plagued by sickness. For me, it started shortly after Thanksgiving when I was already feeling weakened by the news that my aunt had died two days before. I am still trying to recover from it.
I have to say that the last time I felt that sick, I ended up in the hospital - it was when they finally discovered that I had Multiple Sclerosis. Thankfully, I didn't have to go to the hospital this time, but there were several instances when I feared that I would have to. I will spare you the details, but suffice it to say that it was the worst feeling I have experienced in a long time. Now, it appears that my daughter has it and my sister, whom I didn't even see before or while I was sick - obviously, this is something that's going around now and not just MS-related, as I'd first feared.
So, though I wish I could give you an interesting post today, I will leave you with this advice: Take care of yourself. Make sure you bundle up when you go outside, drink plenty of fluids, and if you feel sick, stay in bed. No sense trying to push through it - it's not one of those things you can push through or ignore. You just have to deal with it and let it run its course.
