It appears that I caught another bug. Woke up this morning, with my sinuses irritating the hell out of me. At least I don't feel anything in my chest this time around.....
It seems like everybody in my family has come down or is coming down with a bug of some kind these days. Hell, even a few people in my AA homegroup have been sick in the last couple of weeks (although they seem to have come down with that when I was not going to those meetings because I was dealing with a lung infection of my own).
A lot of different bugs are going around these days. And it's happening DURING FUCKING SUMMER, of all the times of the year! When I want to go outside to play or hike. Heh.
Oh, on another note, I am now 16 days sober. It's been a tough 16 days. I really do not want to drink, but the physical cravings are very much still there. Yesterday was tough in particular - all I could think about was pounding a couple fifths of bourbon, no matter how hard I tried to distract myself. I ended up purchasing a couple of video games instead, which left me with no cash to buy bourbon - that did not help much with the cravings, though.
Well, I am feeling somewhat better today when it comes to the cravings - and worse today because of my sinuses. Ah, well, this is just not my weekend.
But at least the last week went very well for me for the most part. So not everything is bad. I am starting to develop a decent RL social life for the first time in my life, so I am very happy about that.
I'll end this here. I hope your weekend is better than mine!
