Being Sick Sucks

I don't get sick often. Or, at least, I don't feel sick often. I suspect that perhaps I do get sick just as often as everyone else, but I just sort of shrug it off. I only get really sick about once every couple of years or so.

Unfortunately, this time I got sick while I was on vacation. I'm happy I managed to get in some time with family and friends before this happened, though, so it's not the biggest tragedy. However, it has affected this blog (delaying the Smaug post), and, more importantly, it's affecting my ability to enjoy the local food while I'm here. I'd say that's the biggest tragedy.

In any case, I'm on the mend. Yesterday I could only stay awake for 15-30 minutes at a time, and if I ever got out from under my covers my legs would shiver uncontrollably. Also, every time I'd fall asleep I'd have these weird, stressful dreams, forcing me to wake up every hour or two.

Today I'm still pretty achey, but I've been up for several hours now, and I'm not shivering any more. I slept fairly well last night. My tonsils are still inflamed, though, so eating is a chore.

That said, I think I think I'm on schedule to be able to start driving to MAGfest day after tomorrow. Hooray!
