Ship’s Log–April 3rd


It’s pretty clear now that my body is ramping up a fight against Thing 1’s illness. I’m tired and achy, my ears hurt, my glands twinge, and I’m retaining water, but without a pizza binge to blame it on. This is not fun, but I hope that if I give my body the support it needs, I can fight this thing off. I made myself a ginger=rich fresh juice this morning, and worked up a good sweat this evening in class. I am not going to get sick, dammit.
