Sick

It's 9:15 pm and I'm just about ready to curl up in bed with a nice new book from the library, which I will read for approximately 3.6 pages and then conk out. Not only am I tired, but I'm trying to follow my doctor's orders of a couple extra hours of sleep per night.


My friends, let's have a moment of silence for my once pure body.... Thank you. Now, the news. I spent the last week laying around my house with a raging sore throat and body aches. Those have finally passed but according to the doctor I saw on Thursday, it is quite likely that I will be exhausted for the next three to four months. That is right. He thinks I have mono. Or if you don't live in North America (which is the region that calls it "mono" according to WebMD), mononucleosis. The blood test results don't come back for a few more days, but the doctor seemed pretty sure.


But don't cry for me (I'm trying not to type it.... bah, forget it: ARGENTINA!). Do you know what this really means? DAILY NAPS!!!!! I'm considering putting it into my work schedule now that I'm back to the eight hours a day thing. 1 pm lunch, 2 pm nap. This is the best disease in the world.

I really hope it's not mono and you get better quickly or I'll be feeling bad for you for a long time.

Hey Chicka - mono sucks - I hope you don't have it!
Mine flares up every now and then during really stressful times (example: last semester of my Bachelors Degree life at BYU...). It effects everyone differently - so get some sleep and good luck!
