The ebb and flow of plague

My illness recedes like the tide, slowly and almost imperceptibly. Bit by hard-won bit, I am eking out moments of health in my days. Just in time, too. Husband-cat gave me a deadline of seven days of plague then to the doctor I would go. Not normally doc-phobic, I insisted each day of severity was different enough to be "progress" but he was unimpressed. Silly partners and their "standards".

While bedridden I semiconsciously watched the 2012 seasons of Being Human -- American version of a British show where a werewolf, ghost and vampire become flatmates and there's lots of death and angst -- and Teen Wolf -- a bloody, sexy series remake of a silly '80s Michael J. Fox movie I remember fondly. I may or may not be proud of my viewing habits, but I have to share the sheer nakedness of Teen Wolf's opening credits this season. Despite watching a whole season in a matter of days, I never skipped over this. I love that the male leads spend truly excessive amounts of time shirtless. They know their demographic. Also, no one looked remotely like that in my high school.


I swear Netflix pays for itself every time I get sick.

  1. When I realized I'd missed the premiere episode of Being Human, I hurried and found it on their website. Now I'm up to speed. I'm not watching the teen one. But Walking Dead will soon be giving me a Sunday night touchstone. Yay for monster TV!
    Love,

    PS What did the doctor say?

    1. I was better enough on Day 8 that I could be like, "In your *cough* face *cough*. I'm sooo *cough* better." I still sounded like death, but I could breathe, so I didn't have to go. Now I'm on Day 10 and I'm almost normal. Feel like the illness is just messing with my head now.

  2. I stopped going to the dr before I've been sick for 7 days because if you do they will only say that if it's a virus it needs 7 days ... this way I avoid the having to go back and say, "see, I really am sick!"

    Then again, I am dealing with a less than responsive student health center ... it is teeny tiny step up from my undergrad health center, though, in that there they only gave us sudafed and tylenol regardless of your complaint/ailment. It's probably not even legal to do that anymore without signing your life away...

    Feel better ... and I bet that show is better when you are only semi-conscious!!

    1. That's my logic! 7 days!

      Ugh. Student health centers can seriously blow, sorry for the battles. Like students need more bureaucracy to fight... Our doctors moved away so I didn't even know who I was going to go to. Guess I need to get on it!
