Well, actually my 13 year old dog is showing much more enthusiasm and vitality than I am at present. I take my hat off to people who cope with chronic disease - my red raw tonsils will heal eventually. I can't wait to feel like myself again, and run and do yoga and go to work and do housework. I'm trying to rest up but can't help worrying about my class, and all the things I have deadlines for at school that will now be closing in. Which is probably why my immune system is low in the first place. In the last 30 years I've not had two consecutive days off 'sick', and here I am heading for a third. Time for a reality check:
* I'm lucky to be usually so healthy;
* I'm lucky to have a job that pays sick leave;
* I'm going to stop working through lunch times;
* After those sweet little kindergarten hands slip in to mine on the walk to the classroom, I'm going to discreetly use the hand-sanitiser.
