Hi everyone. I’m sorry for slipping away again with no warning. See, I’d been working on a couple blog posts, one of which I was struggling with its length, and then I gradually became so sick all I wanted to do was sit on the couch and die. Or nap, whatever, same thing.
I say “gradually” because it’s not like one day I woke up and was super sick, but it was still pretty fast, enough for me not to expect it and do something proper to finish a post or something. As it happens, I’m still incredibly sick, and will probably continue to feel stupid sick for another couple months at least.
As you should have gathered from the title, I’m sick because of a semi-delightful parasite lodged in my lower abdomen. (Semi-delightful is a word which here means, would be completely delightful it if wasn’t making me ravenously hungry while simultaneously causing all food to look and sound disgusting.) The last time this happened, the sickness abated after about four months, but who knows how it’ll work out this time.
So it’s back to the couch with my DS and Harvest Moon for me, and napping, when a friend has time to come watch my little one. But just as a baby and a toddler are not villains, I don’t think it’s fair to say a fetus is either.
It is TOTALLY fair to call it a parasite, though.
