It sucks. I keep saying things wrong. It makes people confused, annoyed, or angry (depending largely on what I say and to whom I say it). My brain doesn't work right with a cold.
On the other hand, I've discovered that kimchi is an excellent "sick food" in that it goes down easy and perks you up a bit. Also the spiciness of it clears the sinuses.
We did some crazy fun stuff with weapons today in TKD 'cause I was too sick for a full workout (I'm glad I went 'cause I felt a little better after sweating some, but I think Samantha was irritated that we didn't get a full workout... again with the pissing people off unintentionally--sorry). It's hard 'cause all Sa Beom Nim's "toys" (weapons and jump ropes and the like) are designed for kiddies, so sometimes they are too short for me to use well.
I'm sometimes reminded of how big I am here... Most of the time I don't let it get to me, but I hate that feeling. When I'm sick, it's harder to ignore. Things get to me easier. I may be at the lowest weight and smallest size I've been in about 2 years, but I still feel fat fat fat some days. Many days I still feel like the 235 lbs I was 8 years ago. I don't mean to be a downer, but when you've been really fat (just like if you've been really depressed) you feel terrified of going back to it because you know exactly how much it sucked. And exactly how easy it is to do.
And sometimes you still assume you are that way--that people will still react to you that way. For example, I haven't been able to think a guy likes me without talking myself into it since I was in 10th grade. I always assume I'll be relegated to the friend category before anyone speaks with me. There was even a guy I dated for about 8 months ONLY because he made me feel momentarily attractive (I was not really that into him ever). It's not just a self confidence thing. I spent a few years where that was an honest assessment of guys' reactions to me--now it's hard to believe that it might be genuine, even though I weigh 60 lbs less...
Wow. I'm really negative when I'm sick, yeah?
