Last Friday I attended funeral of a sweet old lady that I'd never met. I heard stories how she would do anything to help her family, friends, and complete strangers by giving money, cooking a meal, praying over them, or even something as simple as making them laugh.

Hearing of her accomplishments and kindness reminded me that our time on earth is finite, that each moment we fritter away is a moment we will never get back. So make every minute matter.


So over the last week I’ve learned that I am quite stubborn, stupid, and a BIG a$% baby when I get sick. For those of you that don’t know I pretty much spend the majority of the 4th of July vacation in bed sick.  It all started Friday morning when I honestly thought that I was just suffering from a hangover. (HA) Turns out I had some kind of stomach bug causing me to lose my voice, suffer from headaches, not hold down food, and many other things… YUCK!

SIDE NOTE: Can I just tell you, if you ever get the chance to lay in bed and watch TV for 3 days straight you will drive yourself INSANE! I’m a BIG FAN of NCIS, Law & Order SVU, and USA’s Suits but after 3 days of those… I NEVER WANT TO SEE THOSE SHOWS AGAIN! HA

I pretty much spent the first few days of being sick crying to anyone that would listen about how I was feeling but yet doing nothing about it. Everyone kept telling me “GO TO THE DOCTOR” but yet I kept lying in bed. See I’m a person that doesn’t see the point in paying someone (but yet I have insurance) to tell me how to fix myself when I have WebMD! Yep, I’m one of those people that would much rather Google my symptoms and then take “home remedies” to cure myself then have someone tell me to take this, and this, and this to feel better.

I’m not a big fan of taking medication because I fear taking the wrong thing, too much of something, or forgetting to take it when I’m supposed to.  It’s not that I didn’t pay attention in math class but I’m horrible about taking the right amounts. Perfect example, I’m taking this cough medicine and apparently for a day and a half I was taking 1 tablespoon every 6 hours instead of 1 teaspoon… Yeah, pretty sure I ‘sizzurped” myself a few times and let me just say… I’m GLAD THERE ISN’T YOUTUBE VIDEOS OF ME ON THIS STUFF. I was pretty much like the little kid wondering if this was real life.           

The other reason I really HATE being sick (besides the obvious yucky reasons) is I really don’t like it when people have to wait on me.  See the other problem I have is when I want/need something I WANT IT RIGHT NOW! So in having people get things for me I’m sure I lost/upset many friends, for instant: Friday night I was craving a Pepsi but couldn’t even get out of bed so I called a friend to see if she could bring me one, which she did… 2 HOURS LATER!  AHHHHHHH!

I can’t be the only person that’s this way when their sick… am I??? Are you? Email me, Carson@Y101.com and let me know if you do any of the things above and I’ll post your comments below.

PS: I’m ALL GOOD now. HA!
