For the last two weeks, I have been struggling. I have not felt like myself. A trip to urgent care revealed a small bout with pneumonia. I do not have the virus but the mighty p word was not something that I ever thought would be in the same sentence as my name. Time away from work has been a relief. The medication proved too strong for my system as my car was the site of the reappearance of my breakfast. That has not happened to me since high school, and off to my doctor I went.
He did not detect pneumonia and switched out my medication. Walgreens is sick of seeing me this week. I returned to the comfort of my bed. The worst part about all of this is the feeling of being alone. Coworkers have expressed their concern, and friends have called. I even reached out to my brother. I do not know what is next for me, but I do know that I took feeling good for granted.
