Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. I am honored by your presence. Thank you. Earlier this week – actually on Monday – I started feeling as though I was getting sick. I decided that I did not want the feeling of being sick to slow me down, so I had a vigorous work out on Monday evening at the Y. On Tuesday, I still felt sick.
On Tuesday, I decided to lay low. Wednesday came and although I was not feeling better, I decided to have another vigorous work out at the Y. I thought that by getting a good sweat, I could purge the bug out of my system. On Thursday morning, I started to have an upper respiratory type cough. At this point I found myself becoming a bit frustrated. I became frustrated because I was not feeling better.
On Thursday afternoon, I decided to call my Dr.’s office to get into see him. An appointment was scheduled for Friday morning. I made the decision to lay low for the rest of the day and wait to see my Dr. in the morning. When I met with my Dr., he told me that I had a virus which could not be treated by antibiotics. Zeesk. The news revealed that I was going to have wait and let the virus run its course. The Dr. confirmed what I had working on me would be contagious.
With this news, I began to wrestle with several realities. The virus was going to slow me down and in actually take me out of the game for a while. What this meant to me was that: I would not be able to work out or train for at least another week. I would have to limit my contact with people until I got better. I would have to suspend my social activities for the coming week.
Please read Part 2 for context. Thank you.
