Table for one, please  
I managed to get food poisoning today. So I just spent about the last 12 hours miserably huddled on my small bathroom floor alternately dozing and being completely wretched. At least the linoleum was cool.

Yanno, it sucks to be alone, no matter how much some people enjoy complaining about their families. There was no one to check on me, no one to bring me a blanket when I was cold, there'll be no one to help me scrub the bathroom, not even a glass of water brought when I couldn’t get up. No one I felt comfortable calling. No one to care.

I think next week when some people once again complain that it's just sooo much hassle to load the dishwasher every night or that hubby didn't bring home the right kind of shampoo or he didn't bleach the whites or pick up dinner I am going to be hard pressed not to rip their throats out.

With my luck this will leave me vulnerable to different illnesses boss and coworker had last week that caused them to be out – wouldn't that be just dandy?

So much for my to-do list for the day – only got partway through. Hopefully I will feel better after a few hours sleep and be able to tackle some of those things before the weekend is out. This will teach me not to try out those brand new food places, I suppose.

Must try to drink some water. So tired. Time to sleep.

*pats your hand* I'm sorry you're alone and sick. I know it's not at all pleasant.

I am sorry that you are sick. And I am sorry that you don't have anyone there to help.

Feel better

I remember the day I came down with flu when happypete was on travel. I was so sick I had to ask my neighbor to get Q from daycare; when she arrived with him I was busy throwing up. I had no idea how I was going to look after him; he was 2 at the time, already energetic and active.
Fortunately, he came down with it too, so both of us just vegged on the couch.
You need good neighbors. You should come live in our neighborhood *smile*

I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks for the kind thoughts.

As it goes with food poisoning, it passes relatively quickly. It only seemed like it lasted forever. I'm mostly just exhausted now, with a bit of a headache from whacking my head a couple of times. The other bruises are... entertaining - I'll have to make up a good story for when I go to rehab this week ;)
