I feel like I got hit by a bus. Not a small bus either- like a super big one. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to get my second vaccination shot and I’m so beyond grateful that I was able to get one. That’s what I started telling myself over and over again at 3:30am when I got up to go to the bathroom and was stunned by how I felt. The aches, the headache, and this weird, tight feeling in my stomach. I put in for a sick day in the middle of the night with one eye barely open because I knew right away, this was going to be a rough day. And a rough day it was.
I have been switching from my bed to the couch all day, trying to get comfortable and hoping that the medicine would kick in. It’s almost 5pm and I think I’ve turned a corner. I took a cold shower in hopes that it would wake me up enough to feel semi-human. It worked, sort of. But the truth is, despite not feeling great, I am so damn thrilled to have been able to get fully vaccinated and after all, no pain, no gain, right?!
