just a little unwell…

i have a feeling…

it’s not a good one…

i’ve felt this way before…

dizzy, stumbling, teetering around…

appearing to be intoxicated…

tripping over my words…

eyelids so very heavy…

dropping things repeatedly…

falling asleep, on my feet…

pushing fluids, replenishing electrolytes…

nauseous, nauseous, nauseous…

lying flat on my back…

watching the white walls spin…

chest on fire…

lungs full of phlegm…

cough, cough, cough…

having experienced this feeling before…

my self-diagnosis is pneumonia…

with, dehydration…

i will do whatever i have to…

to stay out of the hospital…

i have been strong and healthy…

until, the last few days…

he’s been sick for weeks…

he denied, denied, denied…

he belligerently, refused to see a doctor…

i explained my situation…

apparently he didn’t care…

i refuse to give in to sickness…

so, i prefer not to say that i’m sick…

instead, i’m just a little unwell…
