On Being Sick

I've had a cold/flu thingy for a week now and if you've been reading my tweets you know I've sounded pretty pathetic.

I get that way when I'm sick.

I've been lucky, this is the first cold/flu I've had in over a year. Normally I catch every one that passes within 10 feet of me. When I catch something I catch it good. And this one was a good one.

Sleeping for at least 10 hours a day. Napping for 2. No energy AT ALL. Fortunately it all seems to be passing… just in time for allergy season.

In the past, when I get sick I would hibernate. I don't wanna talk to anyone. I don't wanna see anyone. I just wanna be left alone to get better. This time, however, I let my Twitter friends in.

And many expressed concern and compassion. To all my online friends THANK YOU for your concern but, for some unknown reason, I always feel guilty for making people worry.

I do the exact same thing when one of my friends is sick. So why am I not comfortable with the reverse?

I guess that's something else I need to work on.
