Yesterday I woke up feeling not-quite-right. I dragged myself out of bed anyway, hoping that once I was up and functioning I'd feel better. I headed to the lab to get my blood work done before my endo appointment on Friday. Then I came home and had a cup of coffee, hoping it would rid me of the headache that was forming. It didn't. I spend the rest of the day napping between bouts of nausea and major sneezing fits. I went to bed early, but I don't feel much better today.
The thing is, I'm not majorly sick. I can keep down bland foods. I'm able to put dinner in the crock-pot and a load of laundry in the washer. But I'm not quite right either. (Well, that point has been long since established - but you know what I mean!!) It's like I'm on the edge of getting majorly sick, but taking it easy seems to be helping me fend it off.
It seems I feel this way quite often. Since the fall and winter started, I'd say I have days like this once a month or so. I don't get "unable to function" sick - but I do get "need to rest up because something is not right" sick. It makes me wonder about my immune system. Is it a big 'ole weakling? Does that fact that my pancreas said sayonara thirty years ago have anything to do with it? Does my immune system see my pancreas slacking on the job and decide maybe it should put in less than 100% as well? Or is this all in my head? Because as I said before, I'm just not quite right.
