My body is falling apart. But I'm not dead yet!

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the kind I mean- a day where absolutely everything goes wrong. You oversleep, stub your toe twice on the same thing, you drop your cell phone in the toilet and then your glasses when you go to retrieve it, the bread is moldy and your hair won't do anything presentable and it seems like everything you'd like to wear is dirty or lost?

The last four months have been like that for me. I'm serious- I have been sick for almost the entire last four months, with only an occasional day of almost-normality. I have had multiple stomach viruses, a chest cold, strange rashes, multiple ER visits, laryngitis... and just about the time I think I'm over one, another one pops up just in time to put me to bed for another week. I don't mean to complain, but seriously- four months of being sick gets tiring.

Oh yea, insomnia. I've become well acquainted with 4am, and am fairly used to sleeping every third day or so. Unless I've had to go to the doctor or something- then I sleep for 24-36 hours. Sleeping for that long without drinking or eating anything causes interesting results. Yep, how does my body react to that? I throw up.

But hey, I've lost 50 pounds, so that's good, right? :D

I have just about decided that my body is a lemon, but I can't seem to find anyone to contact about it. I'd love to get a trade-in, but so far I've had no luck. So I promise, I'm still here and still have tons of ideas, I've just got a body that refuses to cooperate. I've been in this situation before, and I promise I'll be back. I just have to weather this... this span of ill health.

At least I haven't been in the hospital yet, knock on wood!

Is there someone I can call to get a trade-in body? This one's busted.
