This morning I came to a startling and deeply saddening realisation…
I am not invincible.
I know. Harsh, huh?
Naturally, I’m very upset about this. I may take days to recover from the shock. Meanwhile, I’m stuck in bed bored out of my mind, unable to sleep because I can’t decide if I’m too hot or too cold, barely able to breathe with a stuffed up head, hungry but not liking the idea of any food (and besides, my throat is too sore to eat anything), and generally just feeling sorry for myself. Stupid bacteria being stronger than me.
