Sick Face

I've had a cold for about a week now.

There is something strange about Adult Illness. When I say “Adult Illness” I don’t mean to draw a direct comparison to what you could call Child Illness. I guess I don't mean to cite specific types of illness that are felt in adults more then kids. Instead, I mean illness one gets soon after becoming an adult, after one has left the immediate vicinity of home and must depend on ones self to get better. For me, Adult Illness is a state of mind. And it's not good.

I can’t deal with it. I don’t know how to handle it, often over or under medicating with inappropriate over the counters. I miss work when I don’t have to, then show up when I’m near death, and in doing so become patient zero for everyone else on my floor. That’s not to say I’m an idiot, that I can’t read the instructions on medicine or haul my own sick ass to the doctor. It’s just that I don’t want to. I want someone else to do it. That’s the one nice thing about being sick, or at least it used to be. Service with a smile from Mom or Dad or whoever. The good old days.

It would appear the only way to avoid Adult Illness is to move in with my parents. So I guess I'm going to suffer in silence. Kind of.
