sick leave?

Sometimes it takes everything you've got to get up and move. With this intestinal virus I've had, going on for three weeks, I've been told to stay down. Just rest as much as I can. The emergency room doctor wasn't kidding when he said, “This is one nasty virus.” I've been to see my regular doctor too; received additional medications. Wow, but I'm almost out of those and need to see him again.

I have been trying to write but this strongly influences what I do. Let me say that I know this will pass; everything does eventually. Just thought I'd share and let you know why I'm not truly present. Medications for nausea always make me sleepy. That in turn makes my head feel thick... what's that you say? Nothing new??? LOL.

It's a good thing I like liquid diets! All my favorite soups are brought home and devoured, but slowly. I have a perfect cup to hold my soups. I might even soak a saltine cracker or two in the yummy liquid. The medicine distorts my taste buds, so today's celery soup tasted like clam chowder. It's like an added bonus, really, as I like clam chowder (hahaha). Indeed I'm curious to know what tomato soup will taste like, but that's tomorrow's agenda.

Okay, that's all. Hope all of you are healthy. I'll be back soon.


  1. Dear Dixie,
    Hoping that you get well soon. Sounds nasty.
    Mind you, at least your taste-buds seem to be making things interesting!
    With Very Best Wishes,

  2. Dixie, I hope you feel better soon - what a long time it's taken you to get over your illness. My thoughts are with you. Now, hurry and get well, sweet girl!:-)

    Much love your way,

  3. Hi David.
    Yep, everything taste funny or no taste at all. Still I lean toward warm soup and a ginger ale drink.

    Thank you!

  4. Hi M.
    Oh my yes, has taken a while. That's one of the 'perks' of having Fibromyalgia... immune system problems.

    Not to worry, I'll return soon.
    Thank you M.
