A Sickly Holiday

So many different types of drinks & medicines 
It wouldn't be the holidays without someone being sick in our family, and it just so happened that this year that someone was me. The friday before Christmas I woke up feeling not so hot, but I went to work and trucked through the day. However, by the time I got home I was so far past exhausted it wasn't even funny.

I may not have moved from this spot at all....
My dad has a running joke going that he always knows that I'm about to come down with something because I was actually sleeping. Well, he wasn't joking; two-three days before I was going to bed around 9-10pm and sleeping through the night until 7am the next morning when I had to be up for work.

Unfortunately, I came down with 'clinically consistent strep', which sounds just about as awful as it is. Basically what happened was I got strep back in October, got the shot to make it go away, which made it go away for a little bit, but then it came back.

I could stare at the Christmas Tree all night
Sickness for me means that I lay down on the couch and act pitiful until I feel better. Luckily for me, my dad was home and was bale to help me out a little bit (I'd get dizzy every time I stood up from the medicine).

Thankfully I got it out the way before Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, and hopefully I'll have fulfilled my sickness quota for the next few months.

How did your holidays go? Did y'all have a good time?
