I was just diagnosed with pneumonia.
I have been sick for a few days, and what with one thing and another I have been running myself ragged. I guess this is my body’s way of saying slow down and take it easy.
The doctor gave me a note for 2 days off school, which is all well and good, but I have papers due and mid-terms and projects and I don’t have time to take time off. I also can’t breathe, and that should make me just shut up and get into bed. But I am so used to being the energizer bunny, that I don’t know how not to be.
My poor husband is getting exasperated with me because I don’t know how to take it easy, and my kids are ordering me back to bed. The fridge is well stocked with chicken soup, so that should help. But I don’t know how to sit and do nothing.
I need to just let things go for the next couple of days. Anyone know how I can do that?
