I haven’t been sick in a long time, so I think getting the flu or whatever it is I have was a good way to clean out my system and see how well my immune system is working.
I wore myself out over the weekend, and I think that’s how I got this nasty bug.
This makes me glad I’m healthy, because being sick is no fun and drains your energy and makes you feel like you have no life. I usually have a lot of energy, but I think this cold weather is going to make me do some crazy things. My cooling rep told me to stop drinking Coors for a while so that my immune system could get stronger. I think I’ll take her advice and stop drinking for a while so that I can focus on my Heating and A/C tech work. Even though I don’t drink much, I’ve noticed that I’m drinking more than I was a few years ago. It’s time to break the pattern and stop drinking altogether. Working on ductwork, especially in the summer when it’s really hot, takes a lot of energy, and if you’re hungover from drinking, it doesn’t help the situation and makes your Heating and A/C work that much more unpleasant. I think this freezing was necessary to help me make changes in my life so that things are going better than they were. The old worker at the HEPA filter used to tell me that everything happens for a reason and that we should always try to improve ourselves.
