Sick

Whenever I’m sick I tend to feel like the world is coming to an end. I lay in bed wondering if my illness, most likely a severe cold, is actually something much larger. Eventually I decide it is coupled with the onset of diabetes and I will be relegated to strict diets for the rest of my life.

Even though I know the sickness will dissipate over time, I project it onto future events.

Man, we have a trip to Chicago in November, but it would SUCK if I felt like this for the whole trip. I would never want to be on vacation when I need a bathroom every hour. I don't think we should even go. Ugh!
