I was feeling much better than yesterday when I woke up this morning. I was able to make it into work on time and ready to get back to it. I had energy. I wasn’t in pain. I did my best work. I laughed. I nearly forgot I was sick until after lunch when all my symptoms returned, with a vengeance.

I did get ahold of my doctor though. Thank God for her! She’s already ordered more lab tests and as long as they come back negative for infections than I will have a new prescription by tomorrow afternoon and some relief—hopefully!—by next Monday! There is light at the end of this hellish tunnel I just can’t tell how far away the light is, that’s all.

Soon I’ll get back to being me. I can’t believe I took it for granted, again. Never, never, never again. This time I will not let myself slip into such gross complacency. I will be me again for as long as I can, again. I promise.
