Chosing the path of the Weakling – being sick (day 2)

sickOK, so yesterday, I surrendered and finally listened to the demands my body was making. Should have done that a lot earlier, actually. Now, on the second day of being sick at home, I spend half my time in a semi-feverish sleep, and the other half awake. Nearly unable to do anything (even starting up my PC is quite an adventure), most of the time awake is just… well… me lying there and looking at the ceiling.

Being sick is boring

I didn’t remember how being sick is not only physically uncomfortable, but also…boring as hell. Every ten minutes or so, I have this urge to start up my laptop to do some work, but as soon as I get up, I get dizzy spells andย  recall the fact that I am actually on sick leave. Sitting at home, being sick, and unable to think of anything else than getting some work done and feeling guilty for “slacking”. What exactly does that make me? Strong work ethic? Or just a workaholic?

My mind races, trying to think of the last time when I had nothing to do. I simply cannot remember… what should I make of that..?

    I really hated being sick as well. I don’t think its because we are workaholic, but it’s just uncomfortable and frustrated not able to do things we love.

    Recent days I had a same pity experience…. wished my dear ones sit by me for a while.but every one is busy….what to do? I promised myself I will visit the sick person and will sit by them for sometime. And yesterday I visited one of my freinds in hospital….I learned from my illness.
