Under quarantine

I am sick. Wicked sick. I’ve been sick for three days now, but it’s finally kicked my ass. Partly because—whether due to fever, coughing, whatever—I’m not sleeping. I’m accustomed to lying in bed for at least an hour before I fall asleep. I’m not accustomed to being awake fifty minutes of every hour after that. And I cannot get warm enough.

The worst part is my throat. It’s so freakin’ sore I can barely swallow my iced coffee. That’s just totally unacceptable.

So today I’m going to putz around with cover requests and trying to answer some emails that built up on me while I was trying to pretend I wasn’t getting sick.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    I agree with Jaci, you need to go to the doctor.

    Get better Shannon and listen to your friends and see a dr. I didn’t and a month later I am still sick. Finally saw a doctor and got antibiotics. I had assumed it was just a cold. Don’t assume! Go…we need you well. You need to write the Devlin follow up :devil: .

    No seriously, just get better, ok?
