HE knows he's getting sick when he gets achy and wants his blanky.
I know I've got it too when I need my furry Christmas robe. (as in Christmas gift robe, not a robe that is red with white fur trim like Father Christmas or something...)
I mean, I know that as I lose weight and since the dread Disease has afflicted me I've been getting colder. (physically - not emotionally or anything).
I used to be so hot, (temperature wise... ) but this winter I've really noticed that my fingers and toes get cold easily. For the first time in 10 years my winter coat wasn't warm enough. If it's cold out, I feel cold.
And so, I can ignore the paining knees and elbows... the sharp, running pains in my back and neck... the beginnings of a dull ache in my head... by popping pain relievers on a regular basis... but when I find myself thinking longingly of my warm, furry robe... and when I break down and put it on, I must admit that maybe I am not well. Maybe, just maybe, I do have a flu-like virus... maybe I might even be sick......
