I’ve heard it time and again. Often from newly married women. That as soon as the wedding is over they get sick (or something similar from other stressed out folks). As if they had so much stress (both admitted to and ignored) in their bodies there was no room for cold or flu viruses to enter, take hold and multiply.
This was true for me too… well to an extent. I caught “Swine Flu” from my dad (during the early part of the ‘09 flu season). I was married on Friday night and by late afternoon Sunday I was stranded in bed with chills and a raging fever.
So why bring this up now? Earlier this week the pathology report came back informing us that my husbands bladder is cancer free. So obviously a good deal of stress has been lifted off our shoulders. And now I am in bed with a wicked sore throat and congestion that can’t be blamed on my seasonal allergies. I think I see a pattern.
With any luck this will clear out before next Sunday. I get see my cousin and her four-month-old baby on Easter and I don’t want to risk getting the munchkin sick. Besides I could use a “baby fix.”
