First cheesy whine!

Posted by Itlandm on October 12, 2011

I took a sick day today. This isn’t something I do often, thank the Light. But I was so weak, queasy, stiff and hazy, it seemed certain that I was brewing some infection. Even my heartbeat felt irregular by the end of the workday, although not enough to make me faint or collapse. Basically I felt exhausted even though I only have an office job. When I woke up twice during the night feeling icy cold, despite my duvet and almost living room temperature in the room, I decided on a time-out.

(Of course, it probably did not help my chill that I dreamed about watching a house-size satellite fall down on the city where I work. Actually there was a story in the news this fall that such a huge satellite was about to fall down, but it has probably done so already.)

Apart from sleeping in, napping, dozing and reading a little, I also finally set up this sub-blog, so people who come for the science don’t need to read about my sick day.

My computer backed up my original blog during the night, so I could finally take the chance and create the sub-blog here. It turned out I did not need the backup, but I guess it doesn’t hurt.

So am I feeling better now? Somewhat, and I did not fall dramatically ill in the meantime. So if nothing new happens, I may try to return to work tomorrow. One of the toes on my left foot still hurts like a splinter (which isn’t there) if I put on socks and walk normally, not to mention if I wear shoes. So it is likely to be a somewhat uncomfortable workday in that regard, if I go in. But it is hardly a reason to take the whole day off. Possibly work from home. We’ll see what the night brings.
