So this week I finished up finals but it took everything I had to do so. Tuesday morning I woke up with the tell-tale scratchy throat. By thursday I was coughing so much I was unable to sleep. I deliriously took my Hebrew final at 5pm and then crashed. It was like my body finally said, "That's enough, thanks for playing. We are going to take a break now."
So I have spent the last three days sleeping and resting. Because I am literally unable to do anything else. I went to urgent care yesterday morning after a sleepless night of coughing and wheezing. I have sickness induced asthma, and it hit me hard this weekend. It is amazing how exhausting endless coughing can be. I had a breathing treatment and got some oral steroids and more powerful cough medicine. It is good that I went when I did because this was not going to get better on its own. So I am living into my forced period of rest. I have a couple friends who have been bringing me food and making sure I am okay.
So I hate being sick, mostly because I am impatient and prefer to be doing things at 75mph, so being forced to slow down is not my favorite. But this is not always a bad thing. So today I am going to be content with the fact that I managed to do a load of laundry and take a shower. Accomplishment for today. Off to take a nap.
