day 2299 – home working

too sick and contagious to be going into the office so i finally got approval for a remote laptop. i could very well not be working and resting would do me good, but there’s just way too many rushed deadlines. it’s a smarter and safer option for the company because who knows how many people i could infect if i went in. with the amount of coughing fits i have, i was not in the condition to even be outside. all the monitors on my desk kind of makes it look like a security office

day 987 – dozing

image

the fever that i thought went away seems to come and go, and come back again. took some extra strength drowsy pills that put me right out and gave me a good night’s sleep, but i woke up feeling like i am taking on a cold as well. i don’t know how to get rid of this lingering illness. all my parents ever tell me is to see a doctor, but they never seem to understand that from the second a step in the clinic to actually seeing the medical doctor is a complete waste of my time. all i ever get from doctors is useless information i could have told myself

day 944 – dinner in bed

image

pretty much in bed all day including eating dinner. for a second my taste buds had no idea what i was swallowing. the combination of a cold and whiplash neck pain kept me from all my activities. lying down, sleeping and taking drugs are the only things i can do at the moment. not the kind of rest days i had in mind but these are the only days i will get rest time because my body simply can’t do anything

day 797 – trying to train

image

attempting to train tonight even though my body just isn’t feeling it but got to try anyways. the long battle of my cold continues well into the second week, it just doesn’t want to leave me alone and let me live regularly. i hate feeling like this, but i also hate missing trainings, practices and games even more. weather isn’t helping at all with the change of temperature and earlier night falls.

day 551 – weaksauce

image

this has got to be one of the most disgusting shot i have ever taken. the bottle is clearly not designed for a sick person because it literally took me ten minutes to remove multiple bottle caps in which someone any more sick could have passed out by then. what are the chances of being sick three times in a season, but i have proved it’s not impossible, especially when my body immunity is so weak

day 541 – dry cough

image

woke up not being able to speak and only sounded more like human an hour upon waking up. been coughing my lungs out in the morning, good thing it got a bit better as the day went on or i’d end up with a really bad throat infection. i almost finished the whole bag of ricola and some strepsil in one day accompanied with some honey water and some sort of chinese cough candy

day 483 – purple team

image

it’s game day for smd, but i am listed as game time decision. the past 48 hours has been very unproductive while i have been trapped at home battling a nasty cold. the amount of sleep i got during this span out numbers the amount i get on a normal week. i guess it’s a way for my body to tell me it’s exhausted and well overworked. still feeling crappy from the cold, not sure if i am in condition to be useful on the court
