Ok, Ok. I'm an Adult

So, having had this illness several times, I know how easy it is to relapse. It is frustrating to sit with your leg up while you know that there are things to be done. However, I don't want to be sitting in bed in a month wishing that I had taken better care now.

The antibiotics are working, but my leg is still red and swollen and on fire.

I gotta take care of myself because I can't stand being sick. I don't want to relapse. Every time I have had this, it has taken a significant amount of time to recover because I push too hard to get back to "normal" without thinking that normal is kind of what puts me here in the first place.  I call this my "after-stress reaction".
