So I finally can explain my lack of blog posts over the past few months. My body has been taken over by a (currently lime-sized) parasite that controls my every waking hour. He or she is totally welcome to continue to mooch off me for the next several months, don't get me wrong, but it's just been difficult to keep up with some of the things that used to come easy to me... like posting on my blog, which I used to do in the wee hours of the evening.
And as for the other fun symptoms, I'm sure you've heard of the nausea, sickness, frequent urination, and mood swings. But did you know you're more likely to get nosebleeds and congestion? That your digestive tract slows down to a sluggish pace? That you get break outs like a teenager? That you become really forgetful and feel like your brain is in a fog? That your sense of smell becomes superhero sensitive? The list goes on and on... I'll spare you some of the more, shall we say, graphic ones.
