I generally pride myself on my good health. You know, healthy eating, going to the gym, never getting sick. Unfortunatley I said those last three words last week and this is what I get. Allergy season(s), spring and fall, start off with a sore throat and a stuffy head. Just enough to make it hard for me to hear and concentrate, not enough for me to feel like I can take a "sick day". Plus I get chills and get all pale. I suspect the longer Iignore it, the longer it continues (though I am taking some version of Tylenol, day and night).
I feel a little weird about napping during the day, but I am somewhere between working from home and calling in sick.
