In Sickness And In Health.

I am somewhat sick for the second time in as many months. For a person that doesn’t get sick and refuses to get sick, I find this to be quite startling.

I am trying to determine why I am getting sick. Right now I’m blaming the measles vaccine I had to get at the beginning of the year so that I could go to college. I think there’s something inherently wrong with purposely injecting a person with a little measles. “Here, have a little dab of measles, it’ll do you good.” It’s the same reason that I’ve never gotten a flu shot and I won’t get a flu shot.

Aside from beer consumption, which has been cut drastically in the past two weeks, I eat relatively healthy. I’m wondering if I’m not eating enough calories in the hopes of losing weight again. My Monday schedule dictates that I eat lunch at 10:15 a.m. as I have classes from 11 straight through until 5 p.m., so that probably didn’t help the situation last night. I’m going to have to find a better way of dealing with that. Ideally I’d like to drop that infernal math class (love the class, not so wild about the teacher), but I need the course to stay in my engineering classes so I guess I’ll have to come up with another plan.

Last night I slept 11 1/2 hours in one hour increments. God bless Earl. He put up with the tossing and turning and the bouncing around (not in a good way) in bed last night and he seemed quite chipper this morning. But I’d really like to know what’s going on.

Maybe I’ll feel better tonight. I’ll just think lots of positive thoughts.


  1. That Monday schedule is quite an endurance marathon! I’m continuing to send the best vibes for healing and renewal for you.

    As you told of Earl’s “tolerance” of your illness-induced restlessness last night, I was reminded of a song sung by Mark Weigle (“if It Wasn’t Love” from “The Truth Is” CD). He sings of a man whose partner has AIDS, but the point is that there is true love (beyond sex) – contrary to what some of the general population thinks – in gay relationships/marriages. What Earl did is what any spouse would do, who is in love with husband. I think its safe to say he loves you. 🙂
