disaster

October 7, 2010

i was wrong.
there really is something worse than alka-seltzer,
and that is the doctor telling you that you have swine flu
and that you'll probably be out sick for another week.
another week? another seven whole days of this?
i felt like fainting.

i try to stay as happy as i can on this little thing,
and most days (even not so great ones)
i can usually work with optimism --
but today (and the past 7+ days)
being sick and stressed,
and having all the time in the world to think about the many, many, many (etc etc etc x etc etc etc) other things that have gone amiss, i realized my life sort of turned into a disaster over the past month.
so even though i usually try to leave my bad days and sad experiences to my journal,
today i'd just like to say that life is hard, but i can do hard things.

yuck! But it will be over soon-ish. I think mono would suck too because it takes so long to get better!

But you are so right. You can do hard things.
