Again and Again

So, sick again.  You may recall that it was only last week that I was struck down with a summer cold.  Back at it this week.  Started getting cold sweats at work Monday afternoon and then my throat started sealing itself off.  Really wanted to stay home yesterday but, Christ, I had JUST taken the last Tuesday off cause I was sick.  Stupid scruples.  So I come into work and stare at my screen and sweat for a full 8 hours then go home and lie on the couch for the rest of the evening.  Woo.

Seems to be easing off now.  But this year has been ridiculous.  This is my fourth viral infection in the past 6 months.  Jen claims it's more like 8 but that one cough lasted 3 weeks so I think she's double or triple counting that one.

I just don't understand what's changed.  I'm usually good for one cold and one flu each year but no more.  It's really bugging me how I'm getting this exposure.  It's not like I'm working with the public, handling money or credit cards, interacting with a wide variety of strangers day in and day out.  Yet, here I am sick again.  Something has changed.  Something that's changed in the past 6 months.  Hmmmm....



  1. Screw you Dude!!! This is totally not my fault, your immune system is failing you.

  2. Maybe you're drinking too much....or not enough.

    Either way, you should wipe Jenny down with rum when she gets home after work.

  3. Well, she pretty much does that all on her own. Hmm, maybe she isn't the root cause. Still, quite the coincidence.
