Too Much Stress

I went to "sick call" on Friday. I live more than 50 miles from the nearest base so I can go to a civilian MD when I am sick. I got a cold from my daughter while in Savannah. In fact I thought I had bronchitis or maybe pneumonia. I was given a prescription and advised bed rest. "You are under a lot of stress, Lori. You need to get off your feet for a few days, take it easy and get plenty of rest."

A lot of strees, indeed. I croaked out "I love my job" to which he responded that he knew that but it didn't matter. My doctor is also my brother -in-law. He was a Navy MD for three years after he graduated from Medical School. He said that going from being a stay at home mom and being around my children as much as I was then getting a job recruiting (also a 24/7 job) was putting a lot of stress on my body. It has been a major change.

So, for the rest of Friday and all day Saturday I stayed in the bed taking my prescription and resting. I slept hard. I feel much better today although I am still hacking and coughing. I did some minor paperwork and scheduled an interveiw for Tuesday. I will probably reschedule the interveiw for tomorrow depending on how I feel. I would like to get her paperwork into MEPS so she can test and then physcial on Friday. We shall see.
