I keep changing my mind, regarding the status of my health. I'm in this weird "sick but not sick" zone. I don't have very specific symptoms, but I just don't feel right...haven't for several days now. I thought I was getting better, but today I'm not so sure. I'm at work, and work is not agreeing with me. Either that or my lunch is not agreeing with me. That might be it: I was feeling better before I ate lunch. Now my stomach is upset. My throat hurts some, my head and neck ache, and I think I feel a glow of fever radiating from my cheekbones. Or it could be I'm imagining it. Hard to distinguish between hypochondria and actually sickness sometimes, especially once I start feeling wrong.
So I'm sitting here at work, stressing about traffic. I want to be at home, but I don't actually want to drive home. It's snowing and icky out, and traffic is sure to be hideous. I don't have a long drive, but on bad-weather days, at rush hour, it can extend into a painful experience.
The longer I sit and debate with myself, the more sense it makes to simply wait until my normal quitting time, 7pm. The traffic should have died down by then. Right now, 4:30pm, it is surely getting worse by the minute.
I suppose I'll just stick it out. Probably. I wish I were at home though, curled up under a down comforter with a cat or two for company.
If only teleportation devices were more widespread.
