It turns out that I was right. I was indeed coming down with a cold. I’ve spent many nights in a row getting 5 hours of sleep, many weekends in a row hiking through cold streams, all my coworkers are sick, both my roommates are sick, AND I ride public transit every day. Therefore, I was a ticking time bomb just waiting to (explode) get sick. I went to work today despite feeling like crap but quickly realized that I was going to be pretty useless at work, not to mention I was infecting everything I touched so I decided to go home just before lunch and pass out. Luckily I got to stop by the farmer’s market downtown before heading back to my apartment. Got lots of fresh fruits/veggies/whoopie pies (yes multiple whoopie pies). Then I passed out for a few hours, did some laundry, and passed out again.
Definitely felt like crap today, just lot’s of congestion and sinus pressure. I ended up going to bed around 9pm after a 3 hour nap from 2-5pm today. Sleep and fluids, it works for me every time. However, I also felt like crap the next day (my birthday) so I stayed home from work then as well. I just have to make sure that I can get better before my hike this weekend.
