I want to say I hate being sick, but really it’s not something I can control – outside of taking preventative measures. I’m a generally clean person, so that’s all I can do aside from taking care of myself while I’m sick.
I had a meeting this afternoon and I’ve been dealing with a sinus headache all day. I had an hour until my meeting so I set an alarm and went down for nap. I woke up and laid there – waiting for my alarm to go off.
I got curious and it was 45 minutes past.
My wife told me I turned my alarm off and then went back to sleep – must have really needed the extra sleep because I don’t remember this.
That being said, it’s not surprising as I ended up staying awake until about 1:30 this morning – then I woke up at 4:30, then went back to sleep until 6:30.
I’m on some antibiotics so we’ll see what happens – I still need to go get some probiotic stuff as Azithromycin is supposed to do a number on your gut biome as well. Would be nice if the nasal decongestant in the Dayquil I’ve been taking would kick in and get rid of this stupid headache.
But on a positive note, I still took a shower, and got dressed this morning. I also got some reading done – Way of the Peaceful Warrior feels like an almost completely different book 15 years later.
The real test of my new headspace is going to be getting back into the swing of things when I feel better.
