Why, oh why?

Why do we push ourselves too hard on the first sign of rebound from illness? Having been down for nearly a week, after going into work today, I've now cleaned out a trunk, swapped batteries from one vehicle to another, and spent quite a while working on a potential spare computer, including crawling around under my desk hooking my keyboard and monitor back to this computer after failing to get the potential spare running.

And now I sit, sweating, panting, barely able to move my fingers... silly human, just rest and recover, for goodness' sake!

To all out there who are sick and think you're now on the mend, I offer this proposal: W A I T!!! Just take it easy for a little while longer. You'll be better soon, no need to rush it.

I did the same thing after my gallbladder surgery. Felt fine so I thought I was ok.

Tried to take a walk and almost felt like I was going to pass out by the time I got back home.
