We got back from Ireland on Friday and I’m pretty much over jet lag now. We spent a wonderful week in Ireland with friends from when we lived there. I had missed it, and them, so much. We sang all weekend, toured Wicklow for a couple days, visited my Toastmaster’s group, and sang some more Thursday night. There was also a lot of Beamish and Murphy’s drunk.
Unfortunately, I brought back my fourth cold of the winter, and today I came down with the stomach flu. I’ve already missed 5 or 6 days of work for being sick and I haven’t even been there 4 months. It makes me very worried that they won’t take me on permanently. However, at my most recent meeting with my boss he did extend my contract from the end of March to the end of June. So they do like my work. He also put several objectives assigned to me on the 2014 goal list and the VP has approved it. Still, I have no real reason to believe I’ll be working there in July and I have no real vacation and no sick days.
Anyway, I’m sure my being sick all the time has to do with the fact that I eat way too much junk and I never exercise. Except I did hike for 5 hours last Tuesday in the Wicklow Mountains (gorgeous, by the way, if you have a chance GO!) . I don’t have the energy to do anything different. Because I’m sick all the time. If I’m not sick I’m just generally depressed.
I’m going to see my doctor next Friday. I’ll see if she has any advice.
