More than two weeks ago, I was preparing to share a new post. I was excited. The topic was near my heart and very timely, too!
Then the weekend happened and I had to take care of things at home. I was already sneezing like crazy. Sunday night came and — uh, oh — why was I feeling cold? By very early Monday morning, I was with a fever. Darn it. Had to take a whole-day leave from work. Thankfully, I was better by evening. So off to work, I went the next day…Next weekend! I wasn’t feeling 100% by Friday, but I was okay even with a slight case of sinusitis and a teeny bit of coughing.
I was happy as I finally got to meet up with an old friend by Saturday. We live in the same city and yet we weren’t in touch for years! It’s really a long story. But her new bakery is making waves and being featured by several shows, she became a bit active on social media. It was a good time to reconnect. It was already evening when our boy and I got home. Only then did I attack various chores till the wee hours of Sunday morning. I wish I could tell you I did not expect to be sick. But I was coughing like crazy and getting the chills already. I pretended to myself that it was nothing. My body started to ache, too. Honestly, I was a bit worried that it could be dengue.
It wasn’t, but it was a full-blown flu that lasted till Tuesday. Apparently, the flu was going the rounds and I had to be the stupid idiot to welcome it. Wednesday, I was back at work. I still felt the cold a bit but that went away by evening. It’s the coughing and sinusitis that didn’t really stop. The worse part was my husband, my caregiver, got the flu! And obviously, I unwittingly gave it to him. Just when I went back to work. Poor guy.
We don’t have the flu now, but frankly, we’re not all-okay yet. We still get tired easily, like the slightest chores make us lose our breath. We’re still coughing (his is dry cough, so it sucks more for him). Me, I’m just beginning to really get well. Let’s cross our fingers, shall we?
So where was my writing in all of these? Nowhere. First, I got busy. Second, I just suddenly didn’t feel like doing it in the past two weeks. I didn’t even have the heart to turn on my laptop, Not even to watch anything or edit videos. I only went online mostly to communicate with my husband and get updates about my sister from my brother-in-law. I just didn’t have the energy!
Now that I’m better, I have decided to go at it again. I have decided to postpone the post that I wanted to share and save it for November. I think it would be nice to use it for Nano Poblano 2019. It’s my first time to join, It’s the right timing as I’ve been thinking about pushing myself to write again anyway. It’s doable also, less pressure. I find that the more pressure, the less productive I am. Therefore, less pressure is ideal.
As of this writing, I’m feeling much better. Got my taste buds back at almost 100%. Appetite is still weird, though. Sense of smell is back BUT, for some reason, I’ve gotten more sensitive than usual regarding scents. I haaaate scents, regardless if they’re supposed to smell nice. I just want to throw up, honestly…Be they perfume, sweet-scented sprays, detergents,…UGH. Just thinking of them makes my stomach turn a bit.
So that’s me right now. Just thought I’d update you. I hope you’re having better lives…
