Have managed to come down with a summer cold. Am all sniffly and congested. Feeling better today. Last night was feeling as though I’d been run over by a truck or something.
This is only the second time that I’ve been sick this year.
There’s a good chance that this will be the last time I get sick this year.
From the mid-80s until 2009, I got sick a lot. Generally, once every four to six weeks. Would have 3-4 sinus infections every year.
Didn’t realize I was allergic to grain. Once I figured that out, and stopped eating things I was allergic to, my health improved dramatically. I’ve had one sinus infection since then–and that involved flying while I had a cold.
So while I’m bummed that I’m sick (I have Too Much To Do. Period.) I’m also so incredibly thankful that I figured this out. That I now get sick infrequently. That I can afford to eat good, healthy food. That I know how to fix and cook food, was taught how as a child. (I think a lot about food availability issues and food deserts and like that. But that’s a different blog post.)
But because I can’t really do anything today — maybe I’ll just have to spend the day reading. Darn?
