A few weeks ago I crashed my scooter.
That put me out of commission for a few days, but with the help of a bottle of Motrin, I bounced back within a few days.
Then the day before I left Pohnpei I started to get sick. I've flown a lot in my life, but this was the first time I've ever flown sick. What an absolutely miserable experience.
Well, almost two weeks later I'm finally starting to kick the cold and sore throat I picked up on my trip.
I was kind of lethargic for about a week after getting back, with a runny nose, but for the last three days I've been totally out of commission. On Monday and Tuesday I only woke up to eat (I'm fat, fat guys needs to eat) and take medication.
The soreness in my throat made doing anything other than lying down with my eyes closed excruciating. It even hurt to talk.
Like I said, I'm feeling a little better now.
January's been a tough month. I hope I'm healthier in February.
