HEALTH

IT HAS BEEN AN ODD WEEK.

JULY 4TH, I LEFT MY "BUBBLE" (MY CRAFT RM./COMP.), & WAS OUTSIDE 4 AN HOUR. AS A RESULT, MY ALLERGIES SEEMED 2 ACT UP. THE NEXT DAY, THURS.,I HAD A SORE THROAT, THAT HURT 2 SWALLOW (WHICH REALLY STINKS, BECAUSE I EAT BY SWALLOWING SMALL CHUNKS OF FOOD). I WAS ALSO TIRED. BUT I WAS A LITTLE BETTER FRI.

HOWEVER, MAYBE I WAS ALREADY FIGHTING ILLNESS. THE SAT. B4 JULY 4, I WAS SUDDENLY NAUSEOUS & COULDN'T SWALLOW FOR 1 HR. IT WAS REALLY WEIRD. I CAME CLOSE 2 PUUKING, BUT WILLED MYSELF NOT 2—I HAVE PUKED ONCE SINCE MY STROKE, & IT WAS A HORRIBLE MESS! WE WERE HAVING A HAPPY FAM. DAY, HEADING INTO THE MALL, SO I DIDN'T WANT IT RUINED & THERE WAS NOTHING 2 CLEAN ME UP!

MON. WAS SCARY 4 A FEW HRS., 2. AROUND 2, I WAS SUDDENLY REALLY TIRED, WEAK (I BARELY HAD ENOUGH STRENGTH 2 TYPE 1 LETTER), HAD A SM. HEADACHE, & WAS SUPER TIRED (I ACTUALLY WANTED A NAP—WHICH I RARELY EVER DO!). MY CAREGIVER, CARA, READ EMAILS 2 ME, (SO I DID LITTLE) & CARA GAVE ME APPLESAUCE (WHICH GREATLY—I WAS ABLE 2 TYPE AGAIN, & TYPED MY LAST POST).

ME BEING SICK IS WEIRD., SINCE I'M SO GREATLY AFFECTED BY SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A SORE THROAT. I UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY DIE FROM ILLNESS AFTER A STROKE: THEY CAN'T FIGHT IT (IT'S COMMON 4 ME 2 FEEL THE NEED 2 COUGH FOR 30 MIN,) BUT I ALSO FEEL LIKE A REG. PERSON IN A W/C & WANT NO SPECIAL TREATMENT. "IF U CAN BE AROUND _____ W/A COUGH, CAN'T U BE AROUND ME?" BUT MAYBE I'M CRAZY! WHEN I'M FINE, I FEEL GUILTY BEING CARED 4 BY A SICK CAREGIVER, THOUGH, AS THEY NEED A BREAK!
