Sick and Sicker

We have strep throat going around our house. It’s quite delightful, because it has helped us to already reach our deductible for the year.

Also, there is a great difference in how people behave when they’re sick. With some of my kids, you KNOW they’re sick. They are lethargic, and feverish, and they don’t smell very good. Then the other ones, are the complete opposite. It’s no good. Plus, I’m totally the mom that makes her kids go to school, because I never quite believe anyone when they tell me they’re sick, because 95% of the time, THEY’RE NOT. I tell them if they get worse, to go to the nurse, and I will gladly pick them up. Of course, sometimes people need to stay home and have a mental health day, but that’s a whole other topic that I don’t need to go into right now.

At any rate: various people are sick and pathetic, and others are not, and I’m hoping that I don’t get it, and I won’t let anyone sit near me. (Because I’m nice. And overly cautious.)

Beyond that, I don’t have a lot going on. I finally got my MS meds refilled and in my house. I had my first injection in over a month on Sunday, and I felt lousy for about the next 19-20 hours. Which is not bad all things considered, but I WAS at the point when I only felt bad after my third injection of the week, and it only lasted about 15 hours. In my head, I’m giving myself a month to get re-used to the meds. I am probably totally wrong about it, but I’m just going to live in that happy little bubble.
