The Bright Side Of Sick

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on February 27, 2012

in All About Me,Anxiety RULES!,I May Be a Hypochondriac

Aside from the whole living-with-anxiety deal I have going on, I’m more of an optimist than a pessimist.

That’s why I look at all the positives that come with the big fat negative of being sick with a sinus infection.

  • Keeping up on the latest innovations in tissues.
  • Getting to take naps without feeling guilty.
  • “Get well” notes from Claire.
  • Staying sexy while sleeping with tissues stuffed up my nostrils.
  • The children will let you take embarrassing pictures of them because you sound meaner with your sexy sick voice.
  • Eating McDonald’s cheeseburgers because they’re a natural cure for sickness.
  • Using the sickness as an excuse to explain why your sister ran a 1/2 marathon and you didn’t.
  • Friends will take the kids for the afternoon after school.
  • Getting to see what the insides of your lungs looks like when your cough them up.
  • No one complains when laundry doesn’t get done (except it will all be waiting for you for when you’re feeling better).
  • Pharmacists will take one look at you when you drop off your antibiotics prescription and say they’re putting a rush on your script.
  • When you eat an entire strawberry & cheese danish cake by yourself over the course of your 4-day sickness, at least you’re eating, amirite?

I’m 90% better now, but I still have to take the may-give-me-a-yeast-infection antibiotics for the next 7 days.

Bright side? Eating yogurt every day for a solid 2 weeks!

Your next sinus infection should be sponsored by Yoplait or Dannon.

Glad you’re on the mend!

Speaking of new advances in snot rags…I bought a sparkley blue box of Kleenex over the weekend and when you put your nose in it, the tissue is cool to the touch. FEELS.SO.DAMN.NICE.

A new box of tissues is a small perk to sickness.

Well, I totally have to agree with the McDonald’s Cheeseburger cure. Hands down best thing for feeling yucky!

FYI, I am back to blogging… been missing you. 🙂
