I’m still not sure what this bug is, but it floored me these last few days. I’ve been calling it a summer cold because there’s been a sore throat and blocked sinuses, but it has mostly made me incredibly tired, with both hot and cold sweats. I suspect that this bug, plus the hot weather, have interacted with the diabetes to give me some overlapping symptoms, but that’s pure conjecture.
It was hard to force myself to stop, to stay home, and practice some self-care the last few days. It was mostly my inability to really focus much through an exhausted brain fog, and huge amounts of lethargy whenever I did anything that forced my hand. I forced back the feelings of guilt over how stretched at work things are, and made sure to be sensible with my health.
I know: me!?!
I went back to work today. I still feel rough. My throat is still slightly sore, my voice a little thick, and I still want to sleep a lot; but I’m better than I have been.
