Journal (not sure of the date)

I had three really good days. Then I caught the crud my husband had. Fever, body aches and cough. Wish I had gotten the flu shot. My fever is going up daily.

I know my immune system is compromised from the extreme depression. This is very reminiscent of 2009, getting viral overload and ending up with bilateral pneumonia, nodules in my lungs and eventually undergoing a lung biopsy.

This time I am committed to healing thoroughly rather than soldiering on and exacerbating a run-of-the-mill virus. Concerned about my job though. I have no sick leave left.

I'm middle-aged, mother of two adult sons, and a wife. I've been a teacher, counselor, medical transcriptionist, student teacher supervisor, substitute teacher and now I work in retail. File that under life takes many twists and turns one cannot predict!
