Why Am I Screaming Expletives?

It goes something like  – sh*t, d*mn, f*ck, f*ckity f*ck f*ck f*ck. Why? My face is warm and my ears are red, I am getting incredibly weak and tired, and my taste buds have changed into something resembling gritty, bland oatmeal. What does this mean and why am I so upset about it?

Well, it is only TWO days into my return to daily writing – here on this blog and on A Whispered Wind where I am writing a novel via NaNoWriMo. And guess what those above symptoms mean? I. Have. A. Cold!

Yes, dear readers. I am sick, or at least on the verge of being sick. At 50, you just know what these kind of symptoms mean, especially since chemo 4 years ago wiped out my immune system and I get 3-4 colds per year. Usually during a climate change. Like now. It doesn’t matter how much Vitamin C I take (daily) or how much echinacea I take (almost daily), I still get sick.

I promise you, I will fight this tooth and nail so that it will  not interrupt my daily postings. It has been far too long (June), since I have done any dailies and I really, truly want to be doing this now. So, I will rest when I can. Schedule posts ahead of time when I can. And still try to do this. Muddling through.

  1. Lori, I’m guessing you know how far you can get away with pushing yourself. Don’t push any further. We’re all loving your work, especially the NaNo story, but none of it is worth risking your health for.
    Stay strong, stay well, stay wise.

    • Thanks, Keith.. yeah, I won’t push too hard. It took me a total of 6 hrs in little spurts just to write today’s story, but at least I finished it. Figure it will be that way most days for a week or so. Thanks for your words of wisdom 🙂

    • Thank you so much 🙂 Not feeling so so bad today.. tired, achy, but otherwise ok. This is just the early stages of it though. Could wake up tomorrow with it full blown, or it may just pass me by.. thank you for the positive vibes 🙂

  2. Aww man, I know how it feels. I’m still sick from whatever it is going around, and it just wipes out my energy. In between typing sentences, I’m coughing, wiping my nose, and cussing, why me, why now! Ugh! Hang in there, hopefully we’ll both feel better soon. 🙂
