I've been down with a cold and a slightly itchy throat. As usual, I don't take anything because I hate going to the doctor and I prefer not to take any medication unless I have a fever.
Since I believe that this will pass, I take the opportunity to rest and do nothing. I feel that if anything is going to help, it would be that sense of not needing to do anything.
There was a time when I used to drag myself to work even when I had a fever, bad cough and cold or whatever. I know many working moms do this. Now when I look back at how resilient I was, I can feel a sense of strength that I sometimes forget I have.
These days I don't need to report to anybody or be anywhere and it's a luxury I don't take for granted. I only have to worry about myself and getting well.
And just to prove that I haven't lost my sense of humour even when I'm sick, here are some "knock knock" jokes, taken from the world wide web:
Sorry, I didn't know you had a cold.
Eddie body home?
Don't cry, its only a joke!
