Sick Food

I'm alive. 

Well at least I think I am.  I don't really remember much of the past 48 hours, other than I probably slept for more than 30 of them.  

Call it fate, call it bad luck, call it whatever you want, but just as I predicted, I didn't have a chance. 

The flu took no mercy on me.  Luckily, I didn't endure the terrible stomach virus that most people did.  Don't get me wrong, I wasn't exactly up for eating, but at least I didn't spend the majority of the time hugging the toilet.  

Yesterday was bad.  I could barely walk or stand without feeling as though I would pass out.  Like I said, I think I slept more hours than I was awake. 

This morning, I was still feeling like crap but gradually as the day went on, I started to get some life back in me. 

With that, I felt the need to put some food back in me.  The ONLY thing I crave when I am sick is carbs.  The forms of cereal and bread to be exact.  

I tried to eat eggs tonight for dinner but they didn't go down as well as I'd hope.  I think I need to coat my stomach with another bowl of cereal and put myself to bed.  Hopefully tomorrow, I'll be back to normal. 

Thanks for all of your well wishes! :)
