It's amazing what stress does to the immune system. Over-scheduling ... worry ... poor sleep ... germs ... worry ... BAM ... bronchitis and sinusitis and a perforated eardrum.

I guess it's the body's way of saying, "Chill out, man, go back to bed ... relax about all that stuff." But, I would rather not, thanks. Not if this is how it has to happen.

A hammock by a mountain stream with some knitting and/or a good book (and good broadband service) is more my idea of relaxing.
