That Happens When Abnormal Because The New Normal For a While

July 30, 2021

One more thing on the subject of my prolonged “unwellness”:

I’ve come to realize that I’ve been out sorts for so long that I literally may not recognize right away when I am fully recovered.

I’ll Keep You Posted

July 29, 2021

As I’ve been alluding to off and on for a while now, I have been . . . unwell for some time. It’s nothing dramatic or dire, just . . . persistent, and I’d say currently I’m operating at about 75% capacity. I’d say this would mean full recovery is finally on the horizon, but I’ve thought that so many times at this point that I’m just going to admit that I don’t know.

What I can tell you is that at the moment I’m well enough to cautiously test out if a return to a more or less normal activity level triggers another setback or not, and so far that’s been going well.

But If I Die, It Means I’ve Misjudged The Situation, And You Have My Blessing To Then Feel A LITTLE Panicky

March 4, 2020

As a follow-up to yesterday, I just want to assure everyone that I’m fine and feeling much better today.  Please don’t buy into any epidemic panics.

So That Would Definitely Explain It

January 16, 2020

After I posted yesterday, someone reached out to inform me that there’s something like a flu going around that has symptoms similar to food poisoning, but lacking some of the traditional flu-like symptoms.  I haven’t had time to do my own research yet, but I will say that would account for some of the things I’ve been experience over the past few days (primarily a vague sense of fatigue and some achiness).

Mild, Unfortunately, Isn’t The Same As Quick To Pass

January 15, 2020

Me: (A couple of days ago)  Well, if this is food poisoning, all things considered, it’s pretty mild.

Me: (Today) Well, if this is food poisoning, all things considered, it’s pretty mild.

And I Don’t Know If I Was Making Fun Of Myself Or Not

Bad sign:  You inform people that you are not feeling your best today by announcing that you shall be “unconscious-ing” soon.

An even worse sign for me:  After saying such a thing, I actually thought, “Oh, good!  Now I have something to write about when I ‘re-conscious.'”

Me (this morning):  I’m a little draggy, so I think I’ll go back to bed for a few- Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Me (this afternoon):  I can’t believe I slept so long, so I’d better get some catch up work done before I- Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I Am Absolutely Kidding About This, I Just Have A Mild Cold, So Any Ghastly Appearance Was A Preexisting Condition

The bad news is because I’ve been ill lately I haven’t been able to get the house decorated for Halloween.

The good news is because I’ve been ill lately I look ghastly enough that I won’t need a costume.

Today I’m Not Laughing

October 29, 2019

After posting yesterday, someone (having correctly divined that yesterday’s quote meant that I was indeed sick) recommended that I pack it in and go to bed early.  I laughed at this yesterday because I didn’t feel that bad, I was just have a bit of difficulty focusing.

It Really Would Be

October 25, 2019

Me:  (After dragging around the entire morning.)  Kiddo, I’m not sure that I’m sick today, but I’m going to act as if I am.  I mean I’m going to take care of myself like I would if I was sick, not that I’m going to start going around acting sick.

My son:  Yeah, that would be bad.
