October and November have been hard for me from a health aspect. I was driving on the freeway on October 6th and as I was getting ready to exit I was rear ended. My car was hardly damaged, but I took the major damage to my body. I had a whiplash and a sprained back. Car accidents are no fun. And somehow in the accident the impact managed to put a massive dent in my stainless steel water bottle! That’s interesting to me. Then at the end of October I caught a cold. It was unfortunate, but just a run of the mill cold. Nothing too terrible. Or so I thought. I was working extremely hard and pretty long hours at that point and between that, the dust associated with working in a haunted house and just not getting the rest I needed and taking care of myself in general I became very sick.
This is the bacteria that causes bronchitis. It sucks. I have been sick for a month now and let me just say that I didn’t know that it was possible to be sick for this amount of time without having a disease like cancer or some serious something going on. I have tried every single thing I can think of to get well. I’ve tried over the counter cold medicine, home remedies, vaporizers and loads of extra sleep. It’s been a long, long haul, but the good news is that I’m nearly over it and that I lost a significant amount of weight and now I have my flat stomach! Woo hoo! Now I just have to get into the gym and keep it that way. I’m nearly well so hopefully I’ll be able to get in there on a regular basis. It’s been over 6 weeks since I’ve really felt like a real, healthy human being, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that I’m nearly over this string of bad luck in keeping my health. I’ve been coughing a lot less lately, but I really have pretty much no voice so if you call me either expect that I won’t have much of a voice or that I won’t answer my phone.
