When the going gets tough…


I failed to blog last week, so far my resolution isn’t going well. I’m old enough to know goals rarely work for me. I pretty much do what I want :)

Has anyone been hit with the killer flu that’s been stalking America? I don’t have that but I’ve been sick for almost three weeks. I’ve had good days and bad days (mostly bad) and you know what I’ve found out about myself? I’m a big baby and a whiner? Yes, but that isn’t what I was going to say. I can write (at least a little) through lame situations.

Have you ever written while really sick? Do you muscle on or wait until you are 100%? I’m generally not one to push myself too much, but I’ve found that if I do, I can accomplish a lot.

Blech. I hope you feel better soon!
Sometimes I can write more when I'm sick, because my family all leaves me alone! It just depends on how sick, I guess. :)

Sorry to hear you've been sick. We had a stomach bug over Christmas that was really nasty. *hugs*

Yes, I work when I'm sick, unless i'm literally bedridden. And even then, I can't lay in bed too long, so I get up.

I don't know how you do it. I can't write when I'm really sick. I'm a total whimp. You're AMAZING! ;)

Ugg, it’s not fun being sick! I hope you feel better soon.

Let’s see, do I write when I’m really sick? I think I can say yes. ;) Sometimes it’s only 100 words, but I am trying to write every day, no matter what. I have Lyme Disease (and have for almost six years), and some days I literally only get out of bed for a few hours and I don’t feel well enough to do basically *anything*, and yet I still get some writing done… So I would say yes, I do write even when I’m really sick. =)

I have a very low pain/sick threshold. I am the world's biggest baby. Good thing I have been using my essential oils because I haven't been sick in a while. *knocks on wood* I haven't talked to you in ever! I should call you. Fo sho!

I do not write when when I am sick, sleepy, depressed, angry, or any other 7 dwarf sounding emotion other than maybe Happy. Total baby.

I hope you're better soon. If I only wrote when I had no pain, illness, etc. I wouldn't get anything done.

I write when I'm sick. I don't write when I'm sick.
I write when I'm well. I don't write when I'm well.

Unfortunately I don't see too much of a correlation EXCEPT

I write when I'm awake. I don't write when I'm awake.
I don't write when I'm asleep. I don't write when I'm asleep.

That's the only one ;)

Dang! And yes, that bug has found it's way to our place, too. Strangely, I'm the only one without the fever, just a bunch of ... but you probably don't want the details.

Get better soon! :)

Hope you feel better soon! I haven't caught that awful flu yet *knocks on wood* but yes, I have written when sick, but I'm sure I threw out 99% of it, lol. ~hugs

I haven't caught the flu yet this month, but I'm nervous that I will; I often end up catching it from my students, because several of them end up getting it and then they cough and sneeze in class. It's hard for me to write when I'm sick. It's easier just to read, watch TV, or sleep, which is what I recommend for you. I hope you feel better soon.

Oh bummer Angie! I hope you feel better soon! I usually take a break when I'm not feeling well...

Suzi said...

Wow. 3 weeks? Yuck. We haven't been hit with the flu, luckily, just normal cold stuff. I'm keping my fingers Xed.

Imogen Elvis said...

I'm sorry to hear that you've been so ill. Hope you get better soon.

I do write when I'm ill, but that's mainly because last year I was ill more than fifty percent of the time, and if I waited until I was better then I wouldn't get anything done!

Hey old buddy! Long time no hear:)
I've been lucky enough to dodge the flu, but my son got it and right now my daughter has mono:( The sickness still runs rampant around here!
