I can't believe I'm sick again, or still sick. What I thought was a cold turned out to be a sinus infection, which outlived its welcome by three weeks. Just as I thought my unwelcome guest had finally departed, I woke up with a raging sore throat. This after having a grueling and gruesome ultrasound yesterday, which followed hard on the heels of the heart monitor, the check-up resulting in the heart monitor, and the mammogram. It's hard not to feel that I'm falling apart, starting that long, slow slide into illness, old age, and finally, The End. Lights out.
