I remember 25+ years of never missing a day of work due to illness, and that's true. As the head of my companies, I surely could have taken off, but the only day I did take off was the Friday I checked into the hospital, to be pumped full of steroids, and to receive my diagnosis as a reward. But thinking back, there were times, few and very far between, less than a handful in all, and only on a weekend I could afford to be sick, did I get sick. I used to consider myself bulletproof to sickness. Well it all comes back now. The other day I got a fever with shakes. No big deal, right? I had years of fevers and shakes on DMT's. But, actually being sick wipes us out! Zero energy. Arms and legs of Jello. I laid in bed for 2 days, except to continually empty my lime sized bladder. And as much as I tried to force myself to drink or eat, too much to do. So I've lost a little weight!?!
Bottom line. Many of us may develop stronger immune systems with M.S., but when we go down, we go down hard! Better now after 2 days, though still wiped out. Was it a cold, flue, infection? No other symptoms. Does it matter? It's over!
Yeah, I'm a wimp sick!
