I got ill Saturday morning (food poisoning, I think) and ended up doing very little of the things I planned to do this weekend (multiple Christmas parties, etc.). But I actually enjoyed most of my weekend. I spent a lot of time cuddled up in bed reading, often with the company of a sweetheart taking care of me. After the initial getting stuff out of my system, I was recovering, though gradually, all along.

I used to find it hard, when ill, to let it show and especially to let people take care of me. I think I've gotten over that somewhat. I can be a little too stoic, sometimes. But I don't think I'm too stoic for my own good, not anymore.

It does bother me when people worry about me without reason. I can't seem to convince my mother that I'm happy with my life. She has been pelting me with concerned e-mails since I told her that Matt and I are over as a romantic couple but happily living together as friends. She is concerned that I am: naive, too kind for my own good, and in danger of acquiring a "jaded view of life", etc. I have been trying to explain things to her, without much luck. I just don't want her to worry. Especially since I am happy lately. In recent days, I've had more unhappiness over my mom's worries about my life than I have about anything actually going on in my life.

Eh. Enough ranting. Thanks to those who pampered me when I was ill. I'm eating normally now, and pretty much recovered, I think.

Awww, pesky mum, gotta love her.
too bad you've been ill. When things run through me too fast like that I always eat a package of Oreos. If that wont bind things up nothing will. Hope you stay healthy!

What a strange remedy - the Oreos cure!

I saw my mom after work today, and talked to her a little. She still doesn't understand my life, but I should be used to that by now. I just don't always get such reminders. But she seems to be getting over worrying about me somewhat, which is what matters.

Ug, sorry about your sickness, sounds like the same thing that I had over the weekend, and it totally sucked, I too am glad that it's over.

Sorry you were sick. I know how much stomach bugs suck, having been incapacitated several times by them in the past. Once on my birthday, with a long weekend of hot sexiness planned with my gf which was clearly ruined. Much distant past though.

Who is the new sweet heart?

Christmas parties? I'm so jealous. :(
Feel better, eat healthy.

Re: Icky Illness
No NEW sweethearts in my life lately. You've met Sam, who sweetly took care of me most of the day Saturday. And Michael F. came over on Sunday to cuddle me and watch "The Incredibles" on DVD.

How can you be jealous of Christmas parties I didn't go to because I was sick?

I'm not much for letting people take care of me either but it is a good thing to get over. The few times I've let someone nurse me back to health have wound up being really special times despite being ill. Bummer that you were sick but I'm glad that you got to experience being pampered.

I guess moms can be a bit of a mixed blessing too. But whatcha gonna do.

Well, dearest, I now have the same bug. I suppose it was inevitable. Don't think for a moment that I regret having you come over, though.

I thought it was food poisoning, but now I've been hearing from a lot of people (charliecopper, theophania_79) who got similarly sick, so there's obviously something very much going around. Well, at least it doesn't seem to last very long. Let me know if there's anything I can do to take care of you. You deserve the same love and comfort you gave me. Take care, feel better.

You're so kind. I decided to try working right through it. So far, so good, though it hasn't been my most productive day.
