Confession Tuesday - Fallen Away Confessor Edition
I feel like a fallen away Confessor. I've not been really good about Confession Tuesday lately. I suppose that's where my confession should start.
I confess that I feel like I should be in bed right now. I came down with a cold yesterday and it was full blown today. The sniffles, chest congestion, that burning feeling in your chest and a cough that gives me a headache. When I cough like this I feel like my brain is being battered around inside my skull.
I confess that Diabetic Tussin sucks. It advertises on the package no sugar, no alcohol, no Sorbitol, no fructose and gluten free. I has nothing in it to give it any kind of flavor - and that would be okay if I feel like it was doing me any good. But no, it taste crappy and I don't feel any better for using it.
I'm in a pretty crappy mood to. My wife has maintained for years I do not do sick well. I will acknowledge I get pretty grumpy.
Historically I have often denied sickness as long as I could. I resist taking a break and work through it. The past few years I have had chest colds the have settled in my lungs and have really knocked me down. Because if this, I tend now to take these kind of things much more seriously.
I confess that I want to be writing tonight and yet I will forgo it because I'm pretty sure I'm just not going to get into it. I never like going long without writing. Writing keeps my mood balanced. I like getting lost in my writing.
I think I am going to call it a night and go read a couple poems from a book I just pulled out of my book case. Forms of Intercession by Jayne Pupek. That will be my concession for not writing tonight. Then head to bed a bit early.
