I Just Wanna Cuddle, Snuggle, and Sleep

Iâ€™m running a fever tonight and suddenly feeling like Iâ€™ve been ambushed and itâ€™s barely dark. Â I hate being sick. Â Itâ€™s like my body is betraying me. Â I feel useless and helpless and unproductive.Â Â If I want to lie in bed, then I want to do it because thatâ€™s where I want to be, not be- cause Iâ€™m too exhausted to move. Â Iâ€™m too tired to relax in my reading chair with the laptop….
Mentally, I feel great and thereâ€™s so much I want to do
right now. So much Iâ€™m excited about doing.
Physically? Â Either a hot soak bath or, even better, just to curl up on the sofa under one of Aislinnâ€™s blankets and sleep all day. Â Iâ€™m too tired to move.
I just want someone Â to hug me and let me snuggle
and sleep and not think about anything but how good my pillow feels.
