I have been out sick from work from over a week. Today is my first day back and I’m still weak. But I’m alive. I got hit with Influenza, that turned to pneumonia. I have never felt so sick in my life.
I will never underestimate the power of either of these illnesses to bring a person to their knees. I lost 12 pounds in one week. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t get enough fluids. Forget protein goals. I was trying to get water in my system! On Monday I ended up in the hospital for IV fluids and a vitamin pack to get my system to function. I am finally eating food and drinking water on a more regular basis. But I never want to feel like that again.
So my eating is totally off for the moment. But I am wearing a shirt that hasn’t fit for like 6 years. And many people today have said I’m wasting away. I feel like it after being so sick.
