Doctor's Orders

So I have a virus.  I'm extremely contagious as long as I'm coughing.  I have a note to stay home from work all week.  I have a prescription for cough syrup.  And for the most part, I can't run because it will trigger my cough.

I still think that I will try to run.  Not today.  But tomorrow.  And I will go on the treadmill, because the cold will make me cough more.  I hate the treadmill.

But I really like having a note from the doctor.  It makes me laugh.  I've never had a doctor tell me to stay away from people before.  It's kind of exciting... except I can't do anything.

P.S. My abs are getting a killer workout from coughing so much.  They haven't felt this sore in a LONG time.

I'm sorry you're sick. I was sick last week and it sucks. I hope you get feeling better soon!

Argh, sorry you have the sick germ, too! I wish I had a stay at home note from the doctor - that is hysterical! I was off for 4 days total in this crud but should have really stayed home more. One day last week I sneezed so many times that my abs got a killer workout. I thought about how I could market that workout video :). I hope you are on the mend soon...I think I'm going to go for a run on my treadmill here soon, too. Hang in there!!!

I hope you get better soon! It is better to rest up so it does not get worse later. I hope you have a great, restful weekend!

Can your doctor write me a note even though I'm not sick?? I really don't want to work tomorrow.

But I hope you're feeling better. don't push it!
