words to live near

When I took very ill a year ago, I suffered the exact same symptoms that laid me low last night. I was taken down with such ferocity that I was unable to do anything for a few months. In case that was what was happening again, I wanted to leave some sort of word here.

This morning the blinding headache, that had accompanied all the other symptoms, is upgraded to garden variety temple-thumper. The evening's soul-rattling chill and shivers have morphed into a nasty head and chest cold. And only some of my joints are aching, rather than all of them. So I am much better this morning and I feel fortunate for that.

I still feel like crap but that's way better than how I was feeling.

More about anything but my stupid health when I feel a bit better.
