I’ve had some pretty pathetic visits to the doctors office, but the other day sitting on the table crying pathetically and saying to the doctor, “…it just hurts…and my skin… and all my clothes hurt so much!!” might be close to the top. I was diagnosed pretty immediately with the flu and sent home with drugs and instructions to rest up, which was tricky because fever dreams are CRAZY and my body felt like I had been entered into some kind of fight club. I remember at one point in my sweaty, feverish state having these very vivid images of Marmie rubbing Beth March’s legs in Little Women when she has the fever so bad and trying to do the same to myself. Logic is funny when you’re sick.
But I am well now and attempting to play catch up after losing 3 days of my life. Here is a belated Episode 2 of the vlog for you. If you haven’t already, send me your address and I’ll send you a Christmas card! Check out what one of my fantastic readers wrote about it. I haven’t murdered him or anything!!
