Normally I am a pretty, heathy old woman. I ward off most diseases that whirl around us constantly. But sometimes, I suffer from a malaise, which is when I run a low fever, I am very tired, and I just feel “funky"– another pretty good word to describe it.
Well, I am happy to say that after looking like death warmed over, being so weak I was exhausted from walking around the apartment, and just not feeling like doing anything, I am better today.
After I took an ibuprofen the other day I went immediately to fill a prescription for an antibiotic that my physician gives me to have on hand for just such a situation. When this malaise rears its ugly head, I can be prepared, thanks to her.
Well, today I am not all the way back, but I am halfway there. By Monday, I should be the ornery, ole woman that is normal for me. I am so glad that this is over for a while. Unfortunately, when I am totally well, I will return to being bored and restless. But then, I will welcome both feelings like old friends.
