Feelings Friday: Sick

One of the greatest superpowers that I've gained since being married is my ability to see into the future. This became true a few nights ago when Daniel woke up sick. I'll spare you the details, but basically I immediately thought to myself...yup, that will be me in the next couple of days.

Aaaaaaand I was right. 

I mean, I guess it doesn't actually take a psychic to make that prediction. There is literally no one with whom I share more germs (and no one I'd rather share those germs If that guy falls ill, you just know it will be me next. This is because I am exceptionally good at getting sick. It's not my sexiest quality by a long shot, but it is one of my most reliable. 

My immune system is a joke. I imagine it as a club with an overly-lenient bouncer at the door who lets seriously anyone in regardless of how much they will harsh the vibe of the room (I obviously go to clubs all the time).

"Oh, you're a Rhinovirus? By all means, come on in. Swine Flu? Please, stay as long as you like."

Given how often I get sick, you'd think that I'd be able to handle it with grace and dignity, but NOPE. I complain at least once every hour, and I spend the rest of my time channeling the sassiness, sulkiness, and obsessive eating habits of Michelle Tanner.

I become fairly ornery,

and blunt with those around me,

and just overall useless, really...

And instead of writing blog posts, I just post a bunch of GIFs.

How do you act when you feel sick?


  1. Hi Christy,
    I've never commented before but I found your blog a few months ago and I've really enjoyed following along. My husband and I live in NYC (both actors and I'm from TX!) and every time the weather changes, I feel like I go through the exact same thing and just cannot get well. The city passes around some nasty things as well. The best suggestions I got were Sambucas Elderberry Syrup (tastes great just don't do it on an empty stomach) and Wellness Formula supplements (giant hideous horse pills). They're both great for shortening the life of illnesses but greater at helping you ward them off in the first place. You can get then both at Whole Foods, they've helped me a ton. Hope you feel better soon!

    1. So glad to hear from another Texan in New York, and thanks for all of this really helpful advice! I so appreciate it. I always forget that there are preventative measures I can take to keep from getting sick, which is so silly of me. I am totally buying the syrup and supplements today because I am visiting with my three-year-old niece who has a cold that I definitely do not want to catch. Thanks a million!

    2. Anytime! And man are you right (re: your new post) about margaritas (and texmex in general) here in nyc. It is NOT. RIGHT.

  2. Christy, I just found your blog today via a pin to your wedding do-over post. Thank you for your awesomeness. You literally made my day! Hope you're feeling much, much better!

  3. Christy, how do you feel about this since you work or worked at one of there joint company's?
