The Streak is Over..... least I think.

I don't think I've been sick in at least two years. I apparently have a powerful immune system, but I attribute it to the fact that I exercise EVERY DAY. I'm glad it's good for something, because it certainly isn't melting off any pounds.

And I'm not really, really sure I'm sick now.

It began yesterday morning. I had exercised, and I was getting ready for school. I hadn't eaten breakfast, but I often take something with me to eat when I get to school. Suddenly I felt extremely dizzy. Hubby blamed it on the fact that I had worked out but not eaten. It didn't really feel like a low blood sugar dizzy, though. The vertigo continued through the day, but I didn't have any other symptoms. I almost hesitate to write this part, but it's true: the vertigo is worst when I cut my eyes to the right. Not left, not up or down. Only to the right.

Naturally I still went to the gymnastics meet last night. It would take a heck of a lot more than a simple cold to keep me from going to gymnastics.

Today I've become more and more congested, and now I feel achy and possibly feverish.

This isn't the way I usually get sick. Usually I wake up one morning with a sore throat and feel like a truck has run over me.

It doesn't usually sneak up on me like this, one little symptom at a time.

I'm waiting for the big whammy. But I'm attempting to ward it off with drugs.

I'm sorry I couldn't write something more meaningful than a state-of-my-health post tonight. I'll try harder tomorrow.

Ugh! I hope you're feeling better soon. By the by, I had a really bad case of vertigo a couple of years ago. I couldn't even sit up because it was so bad. Turned out to be an inner ear infection, but it was the absolute worst. I'm sending positive, healing vibes your way.

I hope you're feeling better soon.

Thank you both SOOOOOOOOOOOO much for your well wishes. They must be powerful, because today I feel fine. No more dizziness... Well, no more than standard for me.

It was either your well wishes or the drugs, and I'm betting on you guys. Thanks again! Mwah!

I hope you feel better soon! Since you haven't been sick for two years, maybe the common cold is taking revenge and trying to get your in a stealth manner.

Take care of you!
