It’s not enough…

It’s not enough that Im swamped at the office.

It’s not enough that Im up to my ears in Cuba Nostalgia preparations.

It’s not enough that my mom and my mom in law are ill.

It’s not enough that my brother in law is in hospital.

It’s not enough that I havent had a good nights sleep in weeks.

No. Let’s add to all of the above a debilitating flu. Pa’ joder na’mas.

Every single bone, joint and muscle in my body hurts. My head feels like it’s being slammed by sledge hammers. My eyes are on fire and everything that passes through my throat feels like sandpaper. And every time I sneeze I see stars.

  1. Val, Take plenty of rest with the shot of rum, limon y miel. Stress will only make you feel worse (i know – easier said than done). Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I used to say, “It’s Nyquil time!” but those idiots decided to stop using pseudoephedrine, and that pseudoephrine crap doesn’t work.

  3. How ’bout some rrrrrrrrrest …. so you can tackle your long list despues que “te pongas bueno” (como dice mi mami).

  4. The Brasilian version must still have the good stuff cause I took it a few weeks back and I was out for a day and a half. Took it at around 9PM on Friday and I was out till lunch time Sunday. Then again, I’m one of those that hardly ever gets sick, but when I do it hits me hard.

  5. Oh, yes, I can vouch for the Jewish penicillin … great stuff. Revive a los muertos. Best if you can get it fresh made from some Jewish deli.

  6. Val,

    Don’t know if you are still smoking – I seem to recall having read a post regarding your efforts to quit – if you still are, use this as the opportunity to drop the smokes. And for cryin’ out loud – take a sick day from work and the blog!

    Get well soon and thanks again for everything, mi hermano.
