9:22 AM
I don't know what the deal is, but I'm sick again. I started feeling it yesterday morning. Sitting in the lobby of my hotel in San Diego, I knew something wasn't quite right, but I was praying that my body would respond in a positive way. Not so fortunate... I spent the duration of my flight hunched over, pretending I was sleeping, but in reality I was trying not to puke all over the place.

This is not your common cold. I have no sore throat, no cough, just insane nausea, the chills, and a fever to boot. As soon as I got home yesterday, I went to sleep. Wearing the same clothes that I had on and actually still have on right now. Curled up in the fetal position, I shivered for the next 15 hours. Perspiration dripping down my face as I wrapped myself in more and more blankets.

But now I've graduated from SICKNESS 101. The worst is over as I am eating crackers, drinking 7 UP, and acknowledging the fact that the FLU sucks!!
Peace to you,
Mike Park
