While I consider myself in good shape, this has been an exceptionally bad winter for getting sick.

I have learned that when I am sick to not go to work, to stop going to the gym and just rest. Oh yes, I use to be the trooper who would go to work and be miserable, but I made it in. Or I convinced myself that if I go to the gym I will sweat it out.

This is all bullsh!t. When the body is sick it needs rest – full stop. Get rid of the hero complex and humble yourself onto the couch. Having done both I can tell you the latter gets you back on your feet much quicker.

I am even keeping the writing short today because I have very little energy to do anything. Now excuse me as there are a hot pack and a nice comfy bed waiting for me. And yes I am sick of it!
