• That Moment When You Admit, Yes, You’re Sick

    {Thanks to the utterly unpredictable Texas ‘winter’ weather where it’s 60 degrees one day and 85 the next, I’ve been battling what’s either a cold or severe allergies all week. So I’m giving myself a day off. In the mean time, enjoy this post from 2012. How many times has this happened to you? ~Meghan}

    You hacked and coughed all day Friday until one of your friends told you “Jeez, wouldja get a cough drop already?”

    You felt like crap and slept too much all weekend, but you were just tired from the week.

    You sneezed until you dreaded the next fit because it was starting to hurt, but nope, nope, nope . . . it’s only allergies.

    On Monday, you popped Tylenol Sinus like it was candy shot from a Pez dispenser. You switched from an office sweater to a jacket, but it wasn’t fever chills. The building’s air conditioning was just set too low.

    Finally, after nearly falling asleep in the elevator on the way back from the cafeteria where the only thing that looked any good was hot soup, you had That Moment.

    You know what I’m talking about.

    That Moment when denial doesn’t work anymore–when you finally give in and admit:

    Yes, you’re sick.

    haha. Migraine has a denial phase too. Yes I can with the headache away. Maybe some water will help. How about a cookie? Yes a cookie will fix that migraine. A cup of coffee and tylenol. At some point there is only light and pain and light. Just take that stupid migraine pill and admit defeat. 😛 Hateful migraines. Do I want to avoid migraine drugs or have a migraine? Grrrrrr.

    This is something that I don’t want this week especially. I’d have to put off surgery and I’m not up to it. I’m sorry to say this, but I’m glad it’s you and not me! Love you!
