It Sucks Being Sick in the Summer
I feel like I haven't stopped coughing in 2 and 1/2 weeks, and it's pretty much the truth.
Chris's allergies were acting up couple of weeks ago and I felt bad for her because she was sneezing almost all day long. Well, that turned into a head cold which eventually led to a sinus infection.
I didn't think sinus infections were contagious but after she had hers for a couple of days, both Ian and I ended up with sinus infections. So now all three of us are on antibiotics and I am just starting to feel a little bit better today.
I haven't golfed in almost two weeks because I just haven't had the energy. Last Monday was probably the worst day yet. I didn't get much sleep because I was coughing to the point of almost throwing up all night long. So Monday after I got out of work, I went to the walk-in to get some antibiotics.
I didn't have enough energy to go golfing at last Monday and I'm still not feeling great today, but I'm going to give it the old college try.
There's really never a good time to be sick, but I would rather be sick in the winter when you can just lay in bed and not feel like you're missing out on anything. When you are sick in the summertime and the weather is nice and the sun is shining and you don't even have enough energy to do anything, that's just depressing.
But it could always be worse. Whenever I started feeling sorry for myself I would think of people dealing with more severe sicknesses then a sinus infection. And it made me think that I'm actually pretty lucky.
