I’m going to go out on a limb and say that no matter who or where you are, the combination of being alone and sick really sucks. And for me to even use that word indicates how bad yesterday’s bout with food poisoning was. And despite having nothing but water and an Aleve for the last 24 hours, I don’t even want to think about food. I am out of bed today, at least for short whiles, and minus fever and cramps. However, a debilitating backache promises a very slow and painful day. Time for more Aleve.
