I've been sick for about three weeks now. I've been coughing SO much, SO painfully... last night I was up until 3 in the morning coughing. I'm fairly miserable.
As a result, everything in my life feels just kind of uninspired now - work, knitting, dieting... I have no will to do ANYTHING. Just staying awake requires so much energy and creates so much heartache that I wish I could just sit at my desk with my head down for the day. Unfortunately, my kids require tight reins - not that I've been able to KEEP those reins tight with my abounding apathy towards life lately.
The ridiculous thing is, things are otherwise going WELL for me - I just bought a condo (my very first home!), I'm about to join a band, Twilight is coming out, I'm getting my tattoo finished... why am I not the most cheerful person in the world right now? Well, if you were coughing so hard that the blood vessels in your eyeballs felt like they were going to explode, you'd be miserable too.
