Sickly Me (Days 20 & 21/Project 365)

Day 20

sick and sad

Day 21

not candy

The absence of a post yesterday was due to another battle with high fever and a cough that seems to never go away. I don’t know what happened to me, I used to be really sturdy and I barely get sick. But now, just one wrong move on the AC or out under the sun and I am quickly immobilized.I have a feeling that it’s my body’s way of telling me that it’s been getting quite a beating lately and it’s time to slow down.

The thing is–I can’t. The powers-that-be in the office is after my ass and giving me the third degree due to a slow-moving CSR program. I need to get my PR initiative in order and frankly, there’s just so much to do.

Honestly, there are days when I just wanted to quit and run away from my daily dog-eat-dog world. I feel that I have been working so much for the last thirteen years of my life. I’ve had a job as soon as I left University and I never had any day off or even took time to just chill out. The most break I had is the usual three or four day vacation with my family. And yes, even when I am a thousand miles away, I kept thinking about the work I left at home.

I really need to re-assess my priorities in life. I can always find a job, but the body I had (imperfections and all) is the only one I got. I always tell myself that I wanted to be a mom but if I keep on getting sick, then I can’t be a good mom.
