It’s easy to stumble upon moments of self doubt when you’re sick and you’re single. For it is when you’re sick, that you’re often feeling at your lowest, easily susceptible to feeling the true weight of being alone. What’s interesting to me is that I’m content 95 percent of the time with being alone. EXCEPT… when I’m sick. Then I just want company. Companionship to watch the movie SpaceBalls with, and to fight over kleenex and who gets the last orange juice!
So I just embraced those moments and spent time with myself. I’ve binge watched a bunch of movies that I haven’t seen in a very long time, ingested as much liquid vitamin C that I could possibly stand, slept when I needed to sleep, as well as lit candles and watched (from inside) the season take over the yard… the leaves changing color, a small nip in the air.
It’s lovely. It’s also unfortunate that I’m sick – as this is one of my favorite times of the year. I get to wear boots! I get to wear scarves! And although I don’t do pumpkin spice – I find those that do adorable in their charming predictability. Fall is finally here in Seattle, and I’m thrilled! I can’t wait to get out into it and catch up on work and life and the world!
Until then… I think I’ll make a cup of tea and hope that this miserable plague finally goes away enough for me to re-join the human race. Once I’m human again.
And on that note… I thought I’d share some funny meme’s about being sick. 🙂 Enjoy!
