I stayed home from work today.
Started sneezing and eyes watering, runny nose yesterday around 11 am.
Left work at noon and took today off. Only the second time I've used sick time.
Strange, but I always feel guilty taking time off.

Anyways, I slept till 10 am then took a nice hot shower. Still feel kind of tired and out of it. But, doing better than yesterday.
Watching the most terrifying places in America show. I like this time of the year as I can binge watch scary shows. lol

Hope you feel better soon, Bob.

I have found that the best way to treat a cold is to take it easy at the beginning - giving your body the chance to use its energy on healing.

Being in the hospital got me into a routine of care so that's good. I need to take care of my skin, psoriasis, especially as the winter approaches.
I'm going to meet a friend for lunch now.
Key, well done on your 100!
Have fun at lunch, Leshar. I hope at least it will be nice to be out and not too much for you.
Yes, when I was coming out of Post-Natal depression, my goal for the day was to brush my teeth and my hair. Anything else on top of that was a bonus. It's such a dark place when you just feel numb to everything and not part of the real world. Love and hugs to you today.xx

Wolfy, good luck with the info you received,

Off to work for me, running late!

Thanks, SL, and thanks, Croissant. I had a nice visit with my friend. She made me laugh!
Croissant, I don't remember you talking about post partum depression. That must have been so awful for you.
Poor Bob, take it easy and get well soon!

Yes Leshar. I was pretty bad for At least a year. I think it took about 6 months before I went to the doctor and got help. I was in a dark place and would make plans to kill myself. It seemed logical and the best thing for my children. It's very scary where our mind can take us when depressed, telling us something is logical, but it really is not.

It was a very awful time, so I do feel for you as that feeling of a dark cloud and numbness to feeling - and the feeling you can never be happy again.....it's all very real and spirals quickly.

Dear Croissant, how awful for you. Yes, it's a very scary place. You think you're making a rational decision especially wrt ending your life, but it's the depressive beast at play.
