Where Did Shawn Go?

He’s home. Sick. But because he can’t stand being home sick, he’s going into work at 10AM this morning and sequestering himself to the office so as not to infect others.

OK, enough with the 3rd person. πŸ™‚ Yeah, I have the flu that has been ravaging our school district. I try really hard to do all my computer work remotely so that I don’t touch keyboards and mice too often — but I have such a horrible immune system, even with such precautions I get sick more often that most.

Being sick all the time gets old. It’s not the sick that really bothers me though, it’s the guilt. I hate being out of commission and just sleeping or moping all day. Since I’m sick more often than anyone on the planet in my family, I tend to feel like I’m milking them for sympathy. So I push myself too hard. And I get MORE sick. It’s a vicious cycle.

Anyway, I hope you’re all doing well. If you see my coffee cups laying around, don’t drink out of them, lest you get the crud.

  1. Well, I’ll never tell what’s in my coffee cups. It’s fair to say that whatever it might be it’s not strong enough to kill the germs on the rim though. So I’d still advise against licking my coffee cups.

    Also, if anyone was considering licking my coffee cups — um, please stay away. That’s a bit creepy. πŸ˜‰

  2. Feel better Shawn. Get some sleep (poor/insufficient sleep lowers your resistance), eat right (lots of fruits and veggies, dude), read/watch funny stuff (laughter boosts your immune system).

    Of course, I’m not a doctor. I don’t even play one on TV πŸ™‚

  3. I miss the days of youth when being sick was sorta fun if you weren’t too sick, because you got to stay home from school and it was cool. These days, I get wracked with guilt, etc. So I can relate, even if I don’t get sick as much.

    Hope you feel better soon, man.

  4. Shawn, hope you feel better soon. I’m with Michelle on this. To get better, you need to take care of yourself. Just follow Vince’s advices (all wise).
