I had a really really nice Christmas. More on that later.

I've been sick for a week. Sinus cruddy, wracking cough, intermittent fever. Not the end of the world but extremely crappy. I've been able to eat and keep up with my meds.

Being sick though messes me up. At a week's duration, I'm now actively becoming depressed. I know it is just from the strain of illness, but that doesn't help the depression. I can and do remind myself of that, but in the end I still feel it. I feel like I'm behind that big glass window that separates me from everyone. I can't do anything. I'm just going minute by minute, waiting to feel better physically so that I can then expect to feel better emotionally.

Posting this is one of the ways I remind myself that this will pass.

It will pass! Take it as your body letting you know you need to take some time off to take care of yourself honey! Once you've pampered yourself enough, you will get better *big hugs*

Hope you feel better soon. Fighting off illness really messes with your chemical balances, so it's no wonder you're feeling blegh. It will pass, just as you know it will. But yeah, it's horrible to endure while waiting for that to happen. **Hugs**

Yeah....I totally get that. It is completely rotten that it happens too. I'm sure you've read my posts where I'm like that. About a third of the time it's because I'm also physically unwell. The best thing to do is not try and fight it (it could make you emotionally OR physically sicker, so you won't fight off the sickness quite as well). And, just as you said, posting on here helps too...it's quite cathartic. I really hope your physical sickness ends soon and you can start getting emotionally healthy.

It will pass bb. It also is a side effect of your system throwing out anything toxic, the meds go at the same time as the sweating out the fever infection *hugs*
