I was pretty happy to say that I had gone without a bad cold for almost three years. Almost. But I've got one this weekend. I forgot how awful they make you feel. I've also got a slight stomach ache. Stomach problems terrify me because I was very, very sick for 8 months a few years ago. I keep telling myself this will go away, it's just part of the cold. It's hard to get comfortable. One moment I want to fall down and sleep and the next I want to be moving around. The moving around part makes my stomach feel better. The sleeping part makes the cold feel better. The kicker is that I have work tonight and might have to call in sick if I don't pick up a little before the end of the day. (I go in at 4.) I wouldn't care except my boss is leaving for India tomorrow and I feel bad leaving her with a very busy office. Still, I'm sick. What can I do?
