That’s another dangerous side effect of agoraphobia. When you don’t go out much and finally do, you can bring home all the germs and bacteria your body isn’t able to fight off since it’s not been given the chance to work up any antibodies like everyone else that interacts with people on a daily basis. We’re kept pretty sheltered by staying in so often and since our immune system is already compromised by diabetes and another eye flare up, plus added stresses and the dramatic change in weather… it was just going to be a matter of time.
Ben is being great though. He always is. Tonight we splurged and got some take-out. I wouldn’t have been able to cook if I wanted to. But I would definitely like to learn how to make some really good homemade chicken soup someday.
Going back to bed now.
