It's Always Something, Isn't It?

I am not feeling well today.  I have been running a fever for the last couple of days but don't feel like I am sick or anything.  It's probably my allergies getting out of control again.  I was very tired and shaky this morning so I have tried to stay "put" as much as possible for me.

I am not one to sit for long periods of time because my lower back and upper thighs start to ache so, even with a fever, I just keep going. I made my husband's favorite cookies for Valentine's Day and a spaghetti sauce for dinner.  I am not boasting, it's just I'm a hyper person and can't seem to sit still for any length of time unless I am seriously occupied with something engrossing.

I truly believe when you feel unwell so much of the time it becomes part of your life.  Every day you wake up and you test the waters to see what kind of a day it will be .  Will I be in a lot of pain today or maybe just run a fever for no apparent reason.  Will my foot be bothering me today or will it be my allergies again.  Honestly, when you get one day free of all the trappings of having a human body that isn't 100% you feel like singing to the world.

I hope this fever goes away by tomorrow as my husband and I have plans to go out to eat.

Until Next Time. :)

Oh...I'm sorry to hear your not feeling well. I hope you get back to feeling yourself soon.

Any chance you have ME/CFS as well?
