I spent all of Thursday being sick. Friday I woke up feeling terrible, but ended the day feeling okay.
Until I went to bed.
The minute I hit the pillow, things started going terribly wrong. All through the night I was wallowing in misery, trying to get some sleep despite a stabbing headache, leg cramps, and a runny nose. Then things got really interesting when my tongue decided to swell up (thanks to my idiopathic angioedema). So now I couldn't go to sleep, because I had to stand by with my epi-pen in case my tongue got worse and I couldn't breathe through my runny nose. When it rains, it pours.
Fortunately, an overdose of antihistamines arrested the problem with my tongue, a cold pill took care of my nose, and some pain killers and sleeping pills took care of the rest. It was a restless four hours sleep, but at least it was sleep.
After forcing myself to wake up in a daze so I could run an errand, I started whining about how much my life sucks.
Then I ran across THIS astounding bit of genius and realized things could always be worse...
Talk about finding opportunity in the face of adversity.
I'm hoping for a better night tonight.

Here’s hoping you feel better soon ! XOXO
Sorry you’re sick, Dave. And as badly as I feel for the bloke in the video, he seems like he’d be the sort of patient I’d like to take care of.
Maybe your allergic to your bed/ sleep
Bummer about being sick, love that video though!
I love that guy! Why is he quarantined?!
I hate to hear about your swollen tongue and runny nose – not to mention the sleep issues!!
I hope tonight you get some real rest.
He’s fighting a bout of tuberculosis.
