(H)Ack

Ugh. Sick.

Really gross coughing and hacking going on with even shallow breathing. I'm gonna have rock-hard abs from all the contracting while trying not to cough up phlegm. Nose dripping and also congested. Throat feels like glass shards. Not hungry and hot beverages haven't done much to soothe.

Boo!

Home today to rest. Good thing because even laying down for hours yesterday and this morning, I'm still weak and feeling awful.

I know this is just a regular cold, but I don't get sick too often (which surprises people who hear what I eat and don't eat), so I'm allowing myself to wallow anyway. God.

Think good thoughts for me because right now I can't imagine how miserable I'll be tomorrow back at school. Oh, the joys of teaching!

I hope you get better soon, my dear!

Jules, stay home tomorrow! You're just going to be miserable, and you risk the chance of getting worse.

Feel better soon!

Sick days are for when you're sick.
Stay home and see a doctor if you wake up tomorrow feeling the same way.

Feel better soon, Jules! It's that time of year, I think; a lot of it going around my school so I'm getting tons of extra sleep, drinking lots of water, washing my hands like it's going out of style, and exercising more.

And hoping the immunity I've built up will do its job :)
