Just on Friday night I woke up from a nice long sleep and felt like crap. My throat hurts (again), my nose is running and I’ve got an aching body that suggests good ol’ influenza. I’m hoping it’s not because I have some pretty important stuff to do at work on Monday but it looks like it’s not getting any better anytime soon. Yuck.
On a side note, one of the things I’ve noticed during the numerous times I’ve been sick is that I get so-called ‘sick brain’. My head feels like it’s stuffed with cotton, I can’t focus on anything for too long and I’m sleepy yet unable to sleep. Also, my coordination is next to nil so I’m typing this post at about 10wpm. I wouldn’t mind being sick as much if I didn’t lose all of my higher brain functions along with it. Does anyone else get this?
So basically my plans for this Lazy Sunday are as follows: sleep, sleep and more sleep. Maybe interspersed by reading books I don’t have to think too much about and trying to coherently reply to comments. In essence, this really will be a lazy Sunday. I had planned on doing some research for the next Forgotten Figures article (which I’m really looking forward to; my next subject is a pretty cool lady) but obviously that’s not happening now. Next weekend!
What are you guys up to today? Do you get ‘sick brain’ as well when you have a cold/influenza?
