I think stress has finally taken its toll on all of us. We have all been sick for at least three weeks, and E. was hit the hardest (as always). We all started out with colds or seasonal allergies, it really doesn't make a difference at this point, and then for E. it progressed to bronchitis (ultimately ending up in emergency last weekend). Jonas and I are is still ill as well, but better.
For me a constant stream of illnesses (flu, urinary tract infection, sinusitis, and now a very bad cold) has kept me from recuperating, and I know stress has been a major factor in all of this. Remember a while back when I said my mind was elsewhere? Well...I try to keep this a positive space for everyone, but it has all been weighing so heavily on my mind that I really feel the need to just let it out.
Remember our flat tire and bear experience in the pitch black? Well, that wasn't an innocent flat. Someone broke a blade off in our back tire, and not only that but also had to have crawled under our vehicle to put a blade into our spare as well. Two days later we discovered nails in our other back tire...flat again. Yeah, I was really worried. Police were contacted, but nothing. And work, well...it has been a source of stress as well. I stayed home all of last week, just trying to get better, and now we all do, but it just wont clear up completely. Ohhhhh.....
Okay, I hope to be in better spirits soon. If you have listened to all this, thanks.
