Sick of being sick

Both my son and I are sick. And boy does it suck. Not only am I trying to keep him from getting worse but in trying to keep my daughter from catching anything AND I am trying to keep the household running at any kind of pace. I am failing miserably. On the plus side I’ve lost 4 pounds, that’s not much of a plus side.

That’s how I know I’m sick, when I can say a 4 pound weight-loss isn’t a good thing. I haven’t been eating much or moving, so it’s either dehydration or my body eating itself to keep warm. Either way, I lack the strength to complain, I am way to tired and out of it.

I was so hungry today I devoured two peaches and a bagel and felt nauseous, I was shaky because I needed the sugar but I haven’t felt the urge to eat. I hate being on antibiotics. Most if all I hate being on steroids. They make you binge eat, they make you hungry and sick to your stomach at the same time. *sighs* it’s a lose lose cycle. Add that to the nicotine cravings but lack there of and the constant coughing and fever…yeah I’m just a wreck. 

But I lost 4 pounds. I’d put it back on again just to feel better. That’s the honest truth.
