I Hate Being Sick

I got an astonishing amount of work done today, despite having red, watery eyes, a growing cough, and a stuffy head. And every medication I have that might go after the stuffy head says its contradicted for high blood pressure and diabetes, so I'm just having to tough it out. My blood pressure was up about ten points over five this morning even without taking any medication, but that may have just been pressure to get work done while I'm sick.

Lisa called from Oregon this afternoon. Based on our symptoms, we think she's about one day ahead of me on this, so she told me what to expect in the next 24 hours. I'm not looking forward to it, but given that she thinks she's starting to feel better, it's good to have some promise of a light at the end of this tunnel.

Besides, I need to be well by Friday evening, because that's when the open kick-off reception for ConStruction is. Remember, all of you local to the Bay Area and interested in conrunning: the Friday night desert social at the Hilton San Jose is open to anyone with an interest in conrunning. Membership in ConStruction is not required.

If you don't see me there, it's because I'm trying to protect you from my germs.
