Why Me?

Excuse me, please, while I whine for a minute (pretty unusual, huh?) because of the unfairness of it all. Normally, I am a person with a pretty hearty constitution, but lately this hasn't been the case at all. Sunday night, I started to feel crappy, but I thought I was just tired from a busy weekend and sore from a huge endo. But Monday morning I woke up with a full-blown sick, just in time for the last week of planning for a work party for 350+ people. The timing is truly suck-tastic.

Now I suspect that the germs I have were passed along to me by my chronically ill, consistently sniffly nephew when I saw him this weekend. Still, that begs the question: Why, when I am normally never sick, am I sick for the third time since October? I have a couple of working theories:
  • I have been running myself ragged for several months now and am just completely worn out.
  • The Aspergillus penicillium growing in my bathroom has lowered my immunity and made me more susceptible to illness.
  • When I examine my recent diet, I find it deficient in any and all major nutrients, which may have adversely affected my health.
I will have to work on all of the above items, but in the interim, I'm still sick and I still have to get through a week that is going to be a bear.

A Kisscross finale race report is still coming, but it may be a couple of days. Right now sleep seems preferable to blogging for obvious reasons.

Hope you feel better soon, Andrea! Drink lots of OJ or grapefruit juice...vitamin C works wonders. :)

Andrea, I totally know how you feel. I came down with the flu just in time for the Mid-America Trails and Greenways Conference in Kalamazoo. I popped Airborne and aspirin the whole time I was there. I wasn't giving up my conference because of a flu bug.
